Summary: Nice TV, but I do have a corner that has darken compared to the rest of the screen. The whole screeen would need to be replaced to correct - pretty expensive fix. Don't use the 3-D feature like I thought I would. Newer TV's hreless feature for updates, get the later model.
Summary: This is a big tv with a great looking screen. I was very surprised by how light the entire unit was. It was also easy to wall mount. The picture is bright and crisp, no disappoints! The setup is fast and easy, it connected to our wifi signal immediately and also synced with our cable providers remote with no steps at all. The sound is adequate and the different picture settings are good if you're using for games, movies, surfing, etc.
Summary: Easy set up. Great picture. Sound has stopped for a few minutes three times since I have had it. Not just the speakers, tried to use stereo still no sound. sound came back within a few minutes. Hopefully an Hdmi cable. Will check that next if it becomes a problem.
Summary: Great TV for the price! The motionflow technology works great, internet capability works great with programs like Pandora and Netflix, and it works well for mounting. Only reason I took off a star is because it has a glare to the screen, but maybe that's common with 3D TVs.
Summary: I had resisted the whole Flat Panel TV craze for a long time, at least for my largest "Home Theater" display, to the point that when I bought this TV in March, 2011, my best TV was a CRT Sony KV-36HS500. That's a 36" 4:3 tube TV with a 1080i widescreen 16:9 picture of 30-32" depending on material. So why did I have such a "small" and super heavy (~250lbs) TV in this day and age. PICTURE Quality, Clarity, Brightness, Color Fidelity.
Summary: I purchased the Sony Bravia KDL HX800 55, brand new, for just $680 plus tax (total $736) thru Sony's customer loyalty program and I feel like I stole it! This set is awesome! The picture is stunning and it has so many features that you will never use them all. The best features, aside from the picture and 3D, are the built in apps that are accessible via the internet.
Summary: I bought the KDL-55HX800 directly from Sony Style. After a bad experience with a Samsung LN52B750 CCFL-LCD, I returned to Sony for quality and reliability -- and I bought the five year extended warranty - just in case. The Samsung needed a lot of tweaking out-of-the-box too but then the picture was stunning. A previous reviewer of that model said "jaw dropping". I would have to agree. But the reliability sucks.
Summary: The hx800 has great picture quality, but there are some things buyers should know. 1. the screen is very highly reflective. in fact, it's as bad or worse than any plasma on the market. if this tv will be in a room with light, you'll see reflections and prisms. 2. the automotion isn't that great. it claims smooth action, but i found it to be jerky. even simple things like scrolling text would jump and jerk. i wasn't impressed with this feature.
Summary: I recently upgraded from a Samsung 40" LCD to this masterpiece @ 55". I obtained this @ an amazing deal that came with a PS3 (with Grown Ups BLURAY and Gran Turismo PS3 game) as well as Alice in Wonderland BLURAY/3D starter kit including 2 pair of active shutter glasses as well as adaptor and HDMI. This ENTIRE package came in @ just under $2000.00.
