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.
Excerpt: I bought thi sTV in july 2010 and loved it since the minute we started viewing it. The first thing you will notice is the sleek design, flawless pictur quality and great sound quality. the 3D view was amazing too. had to buy a transmitter and 3D glasses sold seperately and already had a 3D blue ray disc player. Playing games is addcitting as the TV makes the games look life like.
Excerpt: The new and improved sony Sony - KDL-55HX800 55 in. HDTV LED TV makes for an amazing buy. Not only is this television nice looking it also has the capacity to create phenomenal picture quality. The television is also super thin making it aesthically pleasing to any living room of your house. It doesen't only have good picture however, this television also has a good sound with high definition quality.
Excerpt: Friend of mine bought this one from costco 3 weeks back. Compared to 55" LG I have, this is much batter in quality and picture. Excellent TV while using with a PS3, great picture & fast 3D. you dont see flickering when you moves your eyes to different parts of the screen like some others, also the picture is NOT grainy like some other brands 3D TVs but only caveat is you can not tilt your head, you have to sit vertical to see 3D content, say you lay down on the couch or...
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.
