Summary: TV has an excellent picture. Flaws are so minor, the average viewer won't notice. I saw no difference between this display and the gorilla glass models. I would only recommend gorilla glass to those with children. There is no difference in the amount of glare between screens and the glass displays are quite a bit more expensive. I did not test 3D. The standard 2D picture looks very good to me. Without question, the most disappointing feature is the sound.
Summary: I love this TV. Love built in WiFi so no extra equipment to buy. BUT when I do an internet search it states I don't have flashplayer or current version to view contents. Of course I do...have no trouble on my computers so have no clue why the TV won't allow certain sites to load?? This is aggravating. Other thing I hate is no blockbuster or vudu access. NetFlix stinks..all old movies. Same with the most of the pre-loaded sites on the TV.
Summary: I'm a hardcore gamer and I love movies. The 3D effect is great. You can literally make anything 3D with it's 2D to 3D conversion setting. I recommend only using the 3D for things that were intended for it like 3D Blu-ray movies or stereoscopic 3D games. You'll get the best results that way I promise. And also the TV can use a little picture adjustment. Change the picture settings to Vivid for best results. And never make the 3D effect stronger in the settings.
Summary: I recently upgraded our living room TV and was throughly confused with all the choices available. We had always been impressed with the picture quaility of our neighbors TV, a SONY. After much research, we bought the Sony KDL-46HX729. We wanted to stream Netflix to our TV and this one also had built-in wireless internet.
