HX820 holds it own even compared to the newest models
20 January 2014
Summary: Purchased this model TV in December fully knowing this model was over 2 years old. Why? Well today tv manufacturers are cutting corners left and right to produce tv's that seem like they offer high end features and picture quality but at a lower price.
Summary: I got a never used refurb item (everything in original bags not opened) for an excellent deal on amazon. The picture is also excellent but per LED not quite as vibrant as old plasma set though much better detail and black support.
Summary: I have been waiting a long time for a new TV. Our 15 year old SONY 32" behemoth died suddenly in January of 2008. We quickly replaced it with a small 27" RCA LCD TV, that was meant to be temporary. 4 long years later, I finally said "That's it.
Summary: Great features. I especially enjoy the WIFI capability, its accurate ambient lighting adjustment, the vivid color, and crisp image clarity. It's an A-1, top shelf LCD-TV. A Sony QWERTY keypad, however, would be very helpful to manage streaming movie search input, etc. I wonder if they make one?
Summary: I love this TV so far! I have researched the purchase of a new 55 inch LED TV for 3 months. I considered a Plasma, then thought I was going to get the Samsung 8000, but really liked the Sony 55HX929, but eventually I decided this one being $700 less then the 929 and basically being the same tv...
