Summary: It was over $2000 for a 46inch and I still think I was drunk when I clicked "submit" button. I recently bought a relatively newer Samsung 60inch (UN60F7100). And here's the results fro comparison. 1. Sony XBR clearly has much better pictures than the F7100. F7100's color looks, well, less colorful. And when playing the same action movies, I can see F7100 sometimes shows the trace of motions...Maybe refresh rate problem?
Summary: I purchased this as an upgrade to my previous Sony XBR tv, and I am very glad I did. Stellar picture, the blackest blacks I've ever seen on an LCD. Very easy picture adjustment menu, I have different setting for live sports, movies on DVD, etc. While I didn't purchase for the wifi/ethernet capability, I have found it incredibly convenient to connect to both netflix and amazon video streaming, and both work seamlessly.
Summary: I've owned this TV for three months and am highly satisfied with it. I do have a few mild complaints which I will get to in a few lines. The Resolution - First off, the picture is stunning even with direct sunlight. With my old 1080P TV I couldn't tell the difference between 720P and 1080P resolution but with my new Sony I demand 1080P, the performance is that great. While watching standard definition is fine, I struggle to find new HD content that is truly 1080P.
Summary: I had written a review on this a while back, but went ahead and deleted it in order to create this much more useful one, as I bet hardly anyone knows this. Basically, if your build date on your 46hx929 is one of the final ones (mine is March, 2012, I believe) it is DIFFERENT than the 2011 hx929 sets. I tried this model more than once with 2011 models. Those were all the similar. However, this 2012 build date one is MUCH different.
Summary: I purchased this TV for the benefits of local dimming LED and picture quality. In that regard it does not disappoint and produces a picture that I believe exceeds the quality of any Plasma or LED I have seen. The blacks are incredible and to see them is to appreciate them as compared to other LED TV's I have seen. You should buy this TV for the picture, because the speakers and remote are disappointing.
Summary: I waited 4 months for the TV just to make sure I wasnt going to miss something in my search for a new TV. I'm glad I waited. As a disclaimer I will say that the 3D aspect of the features were insignificant to me and my wife. I just wanted the best 2D picture I could find and right now I dont even own any 3d glasses, so it was a minor issue.
Excellet TV overall, Oustanding when viewed from front and center

Summary: As of this writing (Sept. 25, 2011), I've had the Sony XBR-55HX929 for just over two months, so I thought it was about time I shared my impressions of it. Nothing I have to say differs significantly from what other (positive) reviews have said, but I thought I'd contribute to the collective wisdom.
Summary: Great Picture and excellent sound. The stand is very solid and a good feature is that the TV will tilt in the stand and also swing left or right. The TV is all screen not much to the frame. The built in WiFi is great for skype. Using the internet is a convenience but unless u are close to the TV you cannot see what the tabs say. The sony camera works great with a good picture however the camera is a usb connection.
