Summary: Great picture quality, with deep blacks and plenty of detail in shadows. Blooming was minimal, and both uniformity and viewing angle were very good. The Gorilla Glass front adds both toughness and good looks. Excellent choice and great quality. The bad: More expensive Home menu>Settings>Picture & Display My personal Calibrartion: Picture Adjustments menu Setting Memory: [any] Picture Mode: Cinema 2 Backlight: 1 Picture: 89 Brightness: 51 Color: 48 Hue: 0 Color...
Summary: Bought this tv about a month ago, unfortunatly not from Amazon because they had it $500 more than anybody else at the time. Anywho, have not upgrade blu ray, can only speak on 2D. Gorilla Glass is wonderful makes tv light for its size and gets rid of glare which only helps the picture. Like another reviewer I went to Cnet for picture adjustments then tweaked them to my liking. When you turn up the motion blur images almost appear 3D.
Summary: Sony has hit it out of the park! This set is fantastic! I'm an audio/visual pro and deal with high end home theaters daily. I shopped arround(Samsung/LG/Sharp/Panasonic) for a replacement for my 9yr. old JVC - H-DILA. The Sony had everything I wanted. Number one & most important was picture quality. Sony has solved the edge lighting issue of "flashlight effect" that all edge lit leds tv's have. I don't know why anyone would buy the XBR ?
Summary: Returned a Samsung 46 ES 7100 for this Sony. The Samsung was an LED on steroids with a burning bright picture that torched all rendering of color and shadow detail.Out of the box settings on the Sony were excellent and I tweeked only a few settings. The Sony HX850 is the closest thing to a great plasma picture you will find in an LED.Its picture quality is like a Rembrandt painting with rich luscious colors and amazing shadow detail.
Summary: This TV is very nice and buying from Amazon is a good thing since the first set arrived and the screen was cracked. Amazon immediately sent new set and picked up damaged one. One might not be so fortunate if dealing with other internet TV sales. My only concern is with the small bezel that holds the glass on as it appears to be not a snug fit all the way around, doesn't impact the picture which is great, but something to check on.
Summary: Received this from Amazon last thursday. Went through the setup steps and then went to the dish netwok programs. the picture is really good when the program is filmed in good daylight. the scenes that are fimed in night or dark places are really dark and are dark enough to make it hard to see anything. I got this tv based on the reviews that I have read in lots of on line locations.
