Sony 50" Black 1080P LED HDTV, Model KDL50R550A

Go beyond simply "watching" movies, and immerse yourself in the experience with the Sony KDL-50R550A 50" 3D LED HDTV. Although only 2 ¼ inches deep, its massive screen and brilliant picture quality will engulf you in a view so realistic you'll forget you're just watching TV.

Dazzling Display with Full HD 1080p and 3D

Sony employs an array of video enhancing technologies to get the absolute best picture possible out of the Full HD 1080p LED TV screen. A dynamic contrast ratio of over 1 Million helps achieve a picture with stunning brights and deep, true blacks. Sony's Motionflow XR 240 technology reduces motion blur, keeping fast action looking sharp. The Sony KDL-50R550A's passive 3D technology (the same used in movie theaters) creates immersive, lifelike 3D images, using lightweight, battery-free glasses. And gamers will love Sony Simulview, which uses the Sony 3D technology to simultaneously display a different image to each of a pair of players wearing the 3D glasses. So, instead of a split-screen view, each gamer sees a full 50 inches of screen, with only their half of the game.

Internet TV, Your Favorite Apps, and DirecTV Genie Compatibility

The way we receive multimedia content is always changing, and the Sony KDL-50R550A LED TV offers multiple options. You'll find all of the typical inputs for connecting video games or a blu-ray player, including a component input, two USB ports and four HDMI connections. But because the R550A series are smart TVs, you'll also have the power of the internet available through your remote. The Sony Entertainment Network gives you access to popular apps like Netflix, Youtube, Pandora and more. You'll also be able to wirelessly stream media straight from your home network, so you can store home videos on your computer, but watch them on the big screen in stunning HD. DirecTV customers who use the Genie™ will also have one less component to deal with, because the R550 series TVs offer full DirecTV functionality without needing an additional receiver.

Easily View Smartphone Media on Your Sony TV

Nearly everyone today has photos and videos on their smartphone or tablet that they'd like to share, and the Sony KDL-50R550A gives you two options to get them on the TV. If your phone is compatible with the Mobile High Definition Link standard, you can connect it to the Sony R550 TVs and enjoy all of your photos and videos, resized to fit the larger screen. The connection will charge your phone, and you can even use the Sony TV remote to navigate your media. The second option lets you connect through Miracast™, a wireless standard that uses Wi-Fi to connect two devices without the need for a wireless access point. Using Miracast, your phone's display will be mirrored on the screen of the Sony TV.

Features:

  • So bright and so thin
    Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a radically brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve an ultra-slim TV design that looks beautiful in your home. What's more, Sony's Edge LED Backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail
  • Lifelike motion
    Watch the football retain its detail during a kickoff and move smoothly as the camera follows it from left to right. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow™ XR 240 technology, which takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, smoothes out the picture where the camera can't for clearer and more natural movement
  • Receiver-less TV
    For DIRECTV customers with a Genie™ Whole-Home HD DVR, the Sony R550A series allows you to enjoy full DIRECTV service and HD DVR functionality without an additional receiver. Place the Genie™ Whole-Home HD DVR in any room of the house and enjoy the clean look of your big screen on the wall without the clutter of connecting a DIRECTV receiver to it
  • Go beyond cable with Internet TV
    Welcome to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet and touching the ‘SEN’ button the TV remote, you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, and made-for-TV apps like Netflix®, Pandora®, YouTube™, Facebook® and more
  • Goodbye wires, hello Wi-Fi®
    Maximize your entertainment while reducing cable clutter. Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity
  • Your smartphone, now on TV
    Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With two ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the R550A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own. 1. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally “mirror” what’s seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it’s charging from the TV4. 2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast™ enabled to the TV
  • Theater-like 3D
    Using the same passive 3D technology used in movie theaters, feel the explosive excitement of theater-like 3D. Even the sound profile is enhanced for 3D viewing to provide a more immersive experience3. Slip on the latest generation of light, comfortable 3D glasses to enjoy your favorite 3D movies. Four pair of glasses included
  • Clearly different
    Fine details and textures appear in whatever you’re watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony’s advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won’t find on most televisions
  • Against the grain
    Dazzle the whole family with ultra-crisp HD clarity and less grain. Digital Noise Reduction enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from USB and other PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid

    I had a V4100 for 5 years, beautiful picture, but wanted a 50". Got this for $900, a good deal, and the picture is good, not great, but a fair deal for the money. The silver name plate on the front is bad styiling and is a reflector, and the screen reflects ANYTHING - it's hard to watch during the day, and even at night the little light on my motion detector can be seen except on the brightest scenes. The room has to have NO lights on at all. Never had this issue with the V4100. I'd return it if I could, and I won't have this for very long. I've owned Sony's XBR's for 30 years - I have the 35" monster in my basement - and this is the FIRST time I've been disappointed.

          Comments about Sony 50" Black 1080P LED HDTV:

          I ordered this TV to replace my 5 years old 40" Sony Bravia that was recently broken (Xbox remote accidently hit the screen hard); for the price..wow, I absolutely love my new TV. I don't think I could ever go wrong with Sony. Picture quality looks great even at the default setting. I play around a little by turning off all the Eco mode and off the Motionflow and Cinemotion so that I don't get that Soap Opera affect that everyone's talking about. Took me longer to set up the base for TV because I didn't look at the instruction. After that, setting up the tv and internet connection was a breeze. The TV doesn't have any trouble picking up my wireless. I was up and running and streaming video from HULU and Amazon Prime and hardly any buffering. However, streaming movies from Netflex is a bit slow though and ran into buffering here and there, but I am not going to take a star off of that because streaming video or internet is a plus but not primary reason to buy this TV and to be fair, I didn't pay over $1K for this TV either. I am so glad that I found ABT website with the amazing price, no tax and no shipping...wow! I ordered same TV from other website and after 5 business days later it still no shipping confirmation. I cancelled the other order and placed the order wit ABT after chating with Carl P online. He was very patience and helpful and informed me that the delivery time frame is pretty much accurate as stated online. I placed the order on Friday afternoon 3/14, received a courtesy phone call (local)from freight company on Monday 3/17 to arrange delivery for Tuesday between 1-5 PM. On Tuesday, I received local phone call from the delivery guy at 1:15 PM saying he's at my driveway. I told him that someone is home so he rang the door bell, took the TV in the living room, get signature and off he go. I was really impress with the delivery because I didn't expect it until 3/20 or 3/21. Overall, I would recommend this TV to anyone and definitely recommend ABT as well due to their price and their staff. Once again, thank you Carl for helping me with the decision on this purchase.

              Comments about Sony 50" Black 1080P LED HDTV:

              I ordered the tv over the phone. Mike McCoy was great to work with. I had found the tv online at an unauthorized sony dealer. Although they didn't match the price, they did knock a bit off. The tv shipped immediately. Will definitely use Abt for future purchases. I've only had the tv on the wall for about 4 days. It has a beautiful picture and all sources look amazing. I have everything running through my receiver and run one hdmi about 15 feet to the tv. The tv automatically turned off the tv speakers and the remote controls the volume of my receiver. So far so good. There is the "soap opera effect", but hopefully I'll get used to it. I've read I can calibrate the tv to lessen the effect. This is a great tv! Everything looks live. I streamed turbo through netflix for my son and I was blown away at the picture I got through my Apple TV. By far a better picture than the two plasmas I have.

              I have had and still have several Sony televisions, and would never buy another brand, so I am extremely bias. The quality of the picture took a short time to adjust to, since everything is so much better.

                  I absolutely love my TV , this is the first TV I have ever purchased and judging by the look of envy on my friends faces , I know I made the right choice. 3D AND Internet connectivity at a good price , oh yeah!!! , I searched far and wide for this TV because it was either sold out or discontinued at various sites, but I am so grateful I found ABT website , not only is the price amazing , but delivery was prompt and the delivery man made sure I was aware he was leaving my TV with my concierge , he not only called my phone but made me speak to my concierge in his presence to authorize the drop off, thank you for your professional delivery men and my order abt. I LOVE IT !!!

                    Only had it a few weeks, but works fine with a great picture. TV is internet and Directv-ready. Mounted on an angle wall, and for its size, it's light enough to swivel (with recommended bracket) to see from different angles. ABT had best price and availability. ABT's delivery provider was courteous, on time, and right to my house, even though I have a PO Box. Great for the Super Bowl, and in time. Discontinued model, so grab one while you can.
