Summary: I'd like to thank all of the Amazon reviews for steering me in the right direction with this purchase. This television is simply remarkable. I must say that I was reluctant to purchase another LED because CNET makes you feel like you're committing a mortal sin if you don't purchase a Panasonic...
Summary: from what I understand Sony has called all available back to Sony. only a few are still out there or used ones. the model W900A is going to replace it but it is not on the shelves yet as far as I know. you might be in luck if Sony lists any at their site under their specials page.
Pros: great picture
Cons: not availble in stores replaced by the W900a
Summary: I have never purchased anything this expensive online before. I was pretty nervous about the shipping of what I would think would be a very fragile item. I have dealt with Amazon.com for quite a long time and have always had a good experience with my orders.
Summary: I have a Sony Bravia LCD from 2008 and was just blown away with the quality of this TV. Fantastic pictures, great speakers, thin beyond imagination, enough I/O ports to plug all your auxiliary equipment. Very happy with it.
Summary: I can only comment on the 2D quality, but thus far, the picture quality is terrific. I used some of the picture tweaks found at Cnet and adjusted them for some personal taste (backlight, sharpness, motion). The set I was shipped has zero dead pixels, and no clouding issues.

Summary: We purchased this TV as an Amazon Warehouse Deal a few days after Black Friday for about $1,430. That price alone was enough to make me giddy with delight. I was slightly concerned about the condition but that went away after we received it and set it up. The TV is in near mint condition physically.
Summary: Okay - So Admittedly I'm a Fan of Sony Products and this TV does not disappoint. We were replacing a 50 Sony Bravia Rear Projection which was Great but too large. The picture on the HX850 is Amazing !!!
Summary: I purchased this television to replace a 10 year old 51 inch hitachi hdtv projection tv. This model is obviously not cheap but you clearly get what you pay for in this model. I am a big fan of Sony televisions & I now own 3 of varying sizes.
Summary: Well, I am an engineer by background and did a whole lot of research before I purchased this one. Sony is a Sony...There is no other television that can come close for all the R & D research put into it by Sony Labs.
