Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS Display technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors—just the way you want them. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with natural skin tones. It’s all thanks to a TRILUMINOS display that uses more colors to produce a more vibrant picture

Excellent picture quality. Have only NETFLIX for 4K content, 4K is awesome. The only downside is Sony does not offer to rent / buy to watch 4K content from their own library. I do not want to spend another $600 for a 4K streaming box again. Sony should share their 4K content at least from their products. When NETFLIX can stream 4K Sony should also be able to.

I wanted to love this set. But I got a defective unit. It suffered from severe back lighting issues. I tried to go through Sony's customer service. That was a nightmare. 3 hours and several disconnects. I finally has to drive 50 miles to return the set to the Sony sore in Glendale Ca. They were very nice and agreed with me on the defects. They offered me another set, but I decided to take a rest and enjoy the Sony set I already own. Here is a picture of the set I got. It might be awhile before I go through this nightmare again. I'm a loyal Sony fan. Every TV, computer, stereo, camera etc in my home is Sony. Please improve your customer experience. Thanks Jeff from Rancho Cucamonga Ca.

SONY ROCKS & ROLLS

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 55" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

We purchased ours back on April 20,2015. We have always chosen SONY products over the years. Great quality and dependability were our reasons.. The excellent picture quality is breath taking, just like you were there! We are very satisfied with our purchase and we keep Netflix busy with movie after movie, so enjoyable on this product. I would recommend getting the sound bar to go with it. We chose the HTCT770. It gives you the theater quality sound. Buy it and set back and enjoy it. You will be glad you did.

Full of Error Pop Ups

Comments about Sony 55" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

1. The most annoying problem with the tv is that in the middle of playing videos through USB, it will say something on the lines of "Media process has stopped working / quit unexpectedly". This happens at least 3 times every day. Don't understand what the problem is. 2. I cannot turn 'Reality Creation' to 'ON' when using netflix. Why? 3. The TV won't recognize the 3D content of '4K 3D' videos, i.e. the videos which are in a 3D format as well as 4K. There's no way to make it recognize 3D...it simply says "Feature not supported" when I press the 3D button on the remote. 4. Cannot convert netflix to 3D - feature not supported. 5. There's no way to sync subtitles in the videos played via USB. The TV has a fantastic picture, but sometimes I feel it acts like a 'dumb' TV. There hasn't been much thought put by Sony to consider the way the users might want to use their TV. It's like all they have to boast about is an excellent picture and a high price tag, with little thought on the user interface and common features. My LG 4K TV (2013 model) was much much better in that regard, even though I would say Sony's picture quality is better.

    Lovely TV with One Exception

    By 

    from Los Angeles, CA, USA

    Comments about Sony 55" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

    The picture on this TV is simply amazing. I stream a lot of programming and have no problems with the refresh rate on this set. The one problem that I do have is a random lip sync issue. Sometimes the lip sync is off for OTA broadcast, sometimes it's off for shows streaming. When there is a lip sync issue it is pretty severe and distracting from the viewing enjoyment of the program being watched. The issue does not happen every time and it's strange because I have two other TVs set up the same way and have no issues. Aside from that it's a wonderful product.

    I also got a defective unit like the one posted earlier. There is lot of clouding. They sent me a replacement which was refurbished and that was even worse. I am thinking of going away from Sony now!!!

    Great picture and sound, 1 app issue

    By 

    from 87505

    Comments about Sony 55" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

    I have had this set about a month. Setup was easy, the box construction really helps this be a one person setup on stand. Streaming is far better than my older LG set. Picture is marvelous overall and I do not have illumination issues in the corners when content is playing - graphic banners, EG Hulu+ banner while waiting for content, is darker in the corners. One issue comes up occasionally, that is an error message when connected to online content that grays out the screen. The message is something along the lines of "Browser will shut down due to internal connection error." It is obviously connected to content but I can not get rid of the grey down and message, even with a restart. I suspect this will be cured with a software or firmware update. Very happy with this TV, would (just might) buy again. The software issue is simply an occasional annoyance and less so than my experiences with some other brands.

    Amazing tv at s great price with excellent picture. Easy to setup and install. Other reviewers claim that sometime part of the picture could be hazy, all u have to do is tune your tv a little bit and it will be gone. Sound us acceptable as well. Great price performance than the Samsung.

      Glare and Brightness at Night Very Annoying

      Comments about Sony 55" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

      The screen is like a mirror at night, any light in room reflects back at the watcher. Picture has to be adjusted for night and day watching, to account for brightness at night. I also purchased along with at HT-CT770 Sound Bar. TV doesn't alway turn on sound bar automatically. Sometimes I have to recycle power on TV to start sound Bar. Definitely need sound bar, sound from tv alone is very poor! 3D is basically useless, picture quality in bad. The only reason I bought the 3D model was because it has a black frame. If you don't mind the silver frame and then don't 3D get it. I have a 5 year old Sony KDL46EX720 and find the the picture is much better and without glare from lights in room at night.
