    I love this TV. The picture is one of a kind and the performance is awesome. (i also own a ex710 model and its still running great so that tells you sony is amazing.) if u are going to buy a sony i strongly recommend this TV. The only thing i dont like is that its a 3D TV and u get no glasses with it like other brands offer. Plus the glasses are very very expensive. sony please consider lowering the price on the glasses, itll cot me 500 dollars for my family to watch a 3d movie. all in all the sony hx850 is a great tv and is worth the money.

    I bought this TV about a month ago. It looks very nice but works horrible. Every time I power it on it takes two minutes to get it going even to change a channel or input source. Its harder to go on the apps or any online related think once you power it it takes about 3 to 4 minutes. Web browser is horrible. You can not navigate the browser with the remote and they dont sell any wireless keyboard or mouse for it. I would not recommend this smart tv.

    Excellent TV

    By TennLogs

    from Collierville, TN

    Comments about Sony 55" Black 1080P LED 3D Internet HDTV With Built In Wifi:

    We got this tv to replace a projection tv that was dying. Both the old set and this set were 55 inch 1080P tvs, but the picture quality of the HX850 blows the old tv away. The colors are more vibrant the blacks are extremely deep. We do not use the streaming services very often, but we have not experienced any problems the few times we have. I love the way the tv and my Sony Blu-ray integrate, the input switches to the Blu-ray when the device is powered on and returns to it's original setting when the unit is turned off!

      I can show you a picture. But you can look for one on the internet I'm even thinking of returning it and getting a different brand unless they fix it or give me a new one without this defect.

      Comments about Sony 55" Black 1080P LED 3D Internet HDTV With Built In Wifi:

      Just got the set 2weeks ago and I'm blown away by this tv. If your on the fence about this tv don't be. Was gonna buy a Samsung before I got to actually see this beast in action and was convinced this was the tv for me. Oh and don't worry about the gorilla glass being to reflective, it's a non issue so don't worry about that at all. If your gonna get this tv have it calibrated to get the most out of it, even though settings are great out of the box. Just finished watching Avengers on bluray on this tv and it is unbelievable how awesome it looks.

        After weeks of checking all brands of TV's at least 50" and wanting LED--good sound with an exceptional crystal clear picture was when I decided on the KDL55HX850. After easy installation using the HDMI cable the picture was crystal clear--Most providers still broadcast in 1080i but this TV is all set up for 1080p when it becomes available. My main goal was for a crystal clear picture especially watching football games and movies-The 3D AND WIFI are good extra's..

            I love everything about this TV, except the sound. I have to turn it up almost all the way to hear it.... Had to hook it up to sound system. The picture is about the best I've seen. The 3D is amazing compared to other brands of 3D TV's in the family. It gives regular TV shows and sports some depth.. The glasses fit over my own and are light.. I would recommend this product.
