Summary: I ordered this tv for black Friday and might i say, what a splendid purchase. I did hours of homework comparing tv after tv, lcd vs plasma, local dimming vs edge lit ect. After receiving the tv from a local shipping service (not ups or fedex) they opened the box and %100 ensured me that my precious...

Summary: I received my KDL-55HX850 as a refurb replacement from Sony for my 10-month-old KDL-55HX820. I had wierd problems with the HX820 almost from the start, but I couldn't pin down the source of the problem.

Summary: I love this tv but am sort of surprised in the fact that it came without a manual.. If I hadn't had a little knowledge of how these things work, I would have been lost in the setting up process. The cost was high enough so that I would expect to see a more thorough set up and user manual.
Summary: Really is a great TV so far. There are two minor issues with it though that cause me to give a 4/5. 1. The stock sound that comes with the TV is borderline terrible. This is obviously where they save a lot of money. Seriously, the sound is really really bad.
Summary: Pros: -- One of the best picture quality in LED TV's for 2012 -- Been using since 2 yrs, still better than most of TV's released in 2014 -- Sony styling, thin profile Cons: -- SmartTV features not par with Samsung or LG -- Takes time when you turn TV ON
