Excerpt: The Sony KDL-55NX810 55 inch 3D HDTV LCD TV is definitely money well-spent. The liquid crystal display is truly crystal clear, especially with high definition cable. The installation process was very easy and only took a maximum of thirty minutes for auto programming. It is also very large at fifty five inches and is great for video games such as Call of Duty Black Ops. The delivery process was prompt, and the interface is very easy to use.
Excellent 3D LED TV on the Market, Beautiful Images!

Excerpt: After a long and vigorous search for a new “upgrade” flat-panel 3D-ready television set, I had limited my choices down to a Panasonic VT20/VT25 series or the Sony HX800/NX810 LED LCD sets. While the Panasonic VT20/VT25 3D rendering was more vibrant and smooth in my opinion, my wife preferred the Sony BRAVIA LED series. Unfortunately, I could not fairly compare 2D imaging between the two because the VT20/VT25 was displaying 3D ONLY.
Summary: Ordered this t-v to upgrade my 32" ,HD TV. Delivery was as promised, except several hours late, came at 8PM. The white glove delivery was great, he unpacked the unit set it up and made sure it worked properly. Boy did it work properly, got it Friday before Super Bowl, what an experience, only thing better would to be at the game. As to other reviews they were right on, the sound sucks.
Summary: Still exploring the various settings and features, but it has been a pleasure to watch right out of the box. The wireless connectivity was very easy to set up and a wonderful feature! The box did not contain the stand, but the seller offered to ship a replacement immediately.
Summary: I've been a big fan of 3D ever since the first RealD movie hit the theaters. I drooled at the prospect of being able to see the same at home! Once the 3D sets started trickling out I decided to wait to see if the technology took hold and to see if the content developed. Initially there was very little content, but now it's finally gotten to the point that I decided it was time to take the plunge.
Summary: I consider myself fairly knowledgeable when it comes to televisions, and I spent a long time deciding what I was going to buy. At first I was convinced I wanted plasma due to the best picture quality, so that is the kind of TV I focused on. Now don't get me wrong, I love plasma, especially the higher end Panasonic lines, but when I saw this TV in the store I was blown away. Once I found the great price on Amazon, I started to sway, and eventually bit.
Summary: I ended up buying this set after going through 3 defective Samsung 58pnc7000 plasmas in a row over a grueling near 4 month period. I thought I might be "settling" when I got my refund from Samsung and went with the 55nx810 as it is a bit smaller, but it turned out that it is everything I hoped the Samsung would be and more. The blacks are incredible on this set, and rival the best plasmas out there, IMO.
Summary: Purchased the bundle - 55 inch NX810 + 3D kit with Alice in Wonderland + PS3 160GB. Setup was easy - it walks you through the process. WIFI setup was also easy. This TV's built-in speakers are good enough for watching TV but not for watching movies. I plugged it into my SONY 5.1 surround system which makes this TV perfect for watching movies. This TV's picture is excellent watching HD channels from DirectTV and COMCAST. Non HD channels looked good.
Summary: This TV was an upgrade to a TV that I loved (Sony 40XBR2 - Circa 2006 model.) I knew I wanted a bigger screen, 3D and wanted something that felt like an upgrade. This TV did not disappoint. I considered buying the Samsung 55UNC8000 but after the overwhelming issues with the processing and power cycle, I kept away. I also looked at the LG LX9500 but heard of spotty quality control issues with LG.
