Summary: I really love this WiFi TV. It has a great picture and it is easy to stream to it. The only thing I don't like is how it oversamples and makes every movie and show look like a soap opera and I cannot figure how to turn that off.
Good picture could be better or it migth just be me

Summary: I recently purchase this TV and its really good, I can say its really not like looking outside your window LOL but its really good. I had a Sony KDL-46EX710 and it had better brightness and picture is almost as good as the HX729 or like I said it could just be me. If anyone has calibrated this TV and got better picture than standard and vivid please let me know your settings I would really appreciate it.
Summary: This is my fifth Sony TV and the first non-XBR that I have owned. I was looking for a quality LCD TV in the 40" to 46" screen size, and the choices were very slim. I currently own the model year 2011 flagship XBR-55HX929, and this TV has almost all of the same operational features of that one (the most important being the top-of-the-line X-Reality Pro video processor) with the exception of the full-array back-lighting.
Summary: If you're looking for a high-resolution television that's ideal for home cinema and HD gaming, this is definitely the ticket. The versatile Sony BRAVIA HX729 Series 3D TV optimizes the picture quality of content in every way possible - with the most advanced video-processing technology Sony has to offer, that utilizes their exclusive Super Bit Mapping for video, and Motionflow XR480, this television's picture will rival that of today's 4K Digital projectors used in movie...
Summary: Bought this tv 19 months ago and in the 17 month and 2 weeks it just turned itself off. Sony repair man came out 5 days after my initial call and repaired what he called a power supply issue. Talked to a few friends and many recent Sony TV owners have told me their similar stories that their TV didn't make it to far before their first power supply replacement. Now in the 19th month screen freezes and only hear sound.
Summary: When we purchased it, this was the least expensive HX series TV. I was going to go with an EX series, but after a visit to the Sony store, it was clear (no pun intended) that the HX series was a much better looking choice. As stated by many already, you need to adjust the settings to your liking, as the picture doesn't look too impressive with factory settings, but once you've adjusted it...WOW. This set looks amazing.
Summary: This is NOT compatible with any of the well known WIRELESS KEYBOARDS (like Logitech).It sucks to key-in the text with the remote of the TV set. And it does not support the ADOBE FLASH PLAYER and troublesome watching a good bunch of video content available on the web :-(
Beware the backlight bleeding on ALL versions of this model.

Summary: I did my research before purchasing a new LED-LCD and found this one had some of the best things said for the price. Even in the forums people seemed to be pretty happy with it save one issue: backlight bleeding or "flashilighting". Many of them suggested different calibration settings to lessen it, but that didn't even come close to eliminating it. I tweeked it to every spec I could find and the issue remained.
