Summary: My Sony HX729 55 in TV was delivered today in a factory sealed box and was missing the neck, screws and hex wrench needed to attach to the stand. What kind of QA/QC was going on that it could be sent without those key parts? Sony was polite but could only offer to send the parts in 2-3 weeks. 2-3 WEEKS??? Are you kidding me? Sony was unwilling/unable to even try to expedite the order. Sony..
Summary: I got mine and i'm not impressive with this tv, i have a samsung 32" that i got it in 2007 has a better quality picture than this sony. It looks like a old tv quality, and i have time warner cable with good quality channels, and it's not good, with HD channels it get better but i can see lags. I don't know what's is going on with sony , but they are not doing good anymore like before. This tv has price , but quality is not good.
Summary: The TV is great but DVD upscaling does not work. I have tried it with two different Blu Ray players and my Xbox 360. I have tried it through my A/V receiver and with direct hook into the tv. It seems that the TV will only accept the 1080p signal from the BD player. When I try to change the scaling to anything other than 1080p I get a black screen. SONY customer service SUCKS!!!!!! 4 hours of 2 online chats.
Summary: Please note, this review has more to do with Sony and its policies than the TV itself. We ordered this model from an Amazon vendor (out of state for us) and it was shipped within a day. There were problems with the shipping company(it was tracked as arriving in our city a full five days before it was delivered; and delivery was made only because I was complaining), but it was delivered and we set it up. It worked perfectly--for a day.
