Technology

X-Reality Picture Engine
Take a glimpse into reality with a picture so real you won't believe it's TV. Skin tones, landscape foliage and countless details come alive as Sony's exclusive X-Reality Engine displays realistic images. The processor optimizes four key characteristics - texture, outline, contrast and color.
Motionflow XR 480
Golf balls roll clearly, with less blurring, as the camera follows them across the green. Footballs retain their detail and move smoothly as the camera pans quickly during a kickoff. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic with Motionflow XR 480.
Dynamic Edge LED
It's all about perfecting a natural look. Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with frame dimming delivers pitch-black scenes and illuminates bright scenes that pop with vibrant color. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right areas for a more realistic picture.
Sony Entertainment Network
Welcome to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are at your fingertips. Connect online and access 1080p HD entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Pandora, Facebook and more.2

Go way beyond cable
You can access thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music on the Sony Entertainment Network. By connecting to the Internet via your home network you have access to endless entertainment, from Full HD 1080p video and 3D content to great made-for-TV apps such as Netflix.2

Goodbye wires, hello built-in Wi-Fi
A clean, clutter-free viewing environment will help you maximize your entertainment. With the ease of built-in Wi-Fi you can stream beautiful, HD entertainment from the Internet or your home-network, without the added hassle of messy cables.2



All devices, together as one
Don't all of your personal photos and videos deserve the big screen? Experience your content on a grand scale simply by connecting your compatible smartphone, computer or Xperia Tablet S via your existing Wi-Fi network. Then you can easily "throw" your videos, photos and music files to your HDTV.6

Life-sized video calls
It's like they're in the room with you. Skype video calls bring your family and friends closer than ever as they appear as large as life on your big screen -for free.2 Just connect the easy-to-use Skype camera (sold separately) for a face-to-face look at the caller on the beauty of your Sony HDTV.

Wi-Fi without a router
Sometimes your friends want to share their personal photos and videos on your beautiful HDTV. With Sony's Wi-Fi Direct Mode, your friends can throw personal content to your TV without connecting to your home network. Wi-Fi Direct completely bypasses the Wi-Fi access point/router, so it's easy to set up.4

Control your TV with your phone
Now there's one less remote control on the coffee table. Just download the free Media Remote app and turn your iPhone, Android phone or Xperia Tablet S into a versatile remote control with a full QWERTY keyboard.3 It makes changing the channels and typing searches ultra fast and convenient.

Handheld gaming goes big
Play your PSP system or other handheld gaming consoles (with SD output) on your HDTV with no irritating black borders surrounding the picture. Just select Game Mode for an ideal fit to your TV screen according to the input. Better yet, Super Resolution Processing delivers a clear, crisp view in HD size.


A sense for songs
What's that song in the TV show, movie or commercial you're watching? Press 'TrackID' on your remote and get the song name and artist instantly.6 You can also start the TrackID service by shaking a smartphone that's running the Media Remote app.4 Very convenient.

Just like being there
Relive the memory of your child's first steps with the realism of 3D. Auto 3D Depth Adjustment precisely recreates the moment, making even 3D home movies look more natural by correcting images that appear too close to your eyes, or too far away. What's more, it reduces eye strain and enhances whatever you're watching - from 3D Blu-ray Disc movies to web videos.1

Save power
Enjoy reduced power consumption of up to 30% while maintaining beautiful image quality. First, the TV recognizes the type of program you're watching. Then it optimizes the viewing settings, automatically reducing power consumption while enhancing color and detail on the screen and conserving energy used by the backlight.5

Onboard manual
You will never lose your TV manual again. The iManual is available through the menu system on the TV - always there if you need it.

Video search
Searching for shows and music on your TV is so simple. Just press 'GUIDE' on your remote and see what's on and what's coming up with a handy image to go with it. You also get an episode synopsis, cast and crew details and suggestions to related shows, on-demand movies and Blu-ray Disc titles.6

My first and only flat-screen was a 40' Samsung LN40A550P3F before purchasing the 55' Sony Bravia HX750. The reviews were pretty lacking so I've decided to make this review detailed as possible from a consumer's point of view.

The main features that sold me on this set was the 55' size, 3D capability, picture quality, and built in Wi-Fi. Three lived up to and surpassed expectations while one is a disappointment.

Size upgrade makes a world of difference but hinders streaming experience

The 55 inch HX750 dwarfs the old 40 inch Samsung. The television doubles as living room PC monitor and I was constantly having to squint and crank up the font sizes in order to read while sitting on the couch. The 55 inch screen size allows me to sit back and relax with a wireless keyboard as if I'm seated at the desk.

Blurays look phenomenal on the large screen and bigger is better when it comes to immersing yourself in the 3D experience. I recently axed cable from our household as I was beginning to believe HD streaming was providing good enough quality to watch on the big screen. However, the artifacts present in the compressed streaming video is magnified greatly. Pixelation and banding that was only slightly visible on the 40 inch Samsung is now a distraction while watching on the large 55 inch screen.

While watching on the larger screen makes for a cinematic experience, it also exposes flaws of streaming video compression. Looks like I'll be switching back to multiple Netflix rentals, Redbox, and Cable if boosting my internet bandwidth doesn't improve streaming quality.

Is this 3D thing going to die fast?

I've watched several movies in the theater and thought 3D added to the experience.

Well, we bought this t.v. in early April and by the end of May, it stopped working. It was wonderful when it worked, but died within 2 months. Quick calls to Sony revealed this is a common problem they're having with this t.v. and they said we need to replace the circuit board. We waited a couple days before a person from their local service facility called. That person informed us they didn't have the board in-stock and it would be 4-7 days. Well, we're still waiting. They have not been in-touch, we don't know what the hold up is. We have to chase them constantly to find out what's going on. Meanwhile, our t.v. still doesn't work. (When we try to turn it on, it goes immediately to standby mode.) Soooo disappointed that we shelled out this kind of money for a t.v. that is faulty and Sony isn't particularly motivated to get us up and running again.

You are not going to get a MIT review from me. I waited for a few months for the release and then purchased the 55 inch when it became available. All I did was plug in the TV without making one adjustment. Every friend that watches this TV with me rates it a 5. The 3D is perfect for the living room - don't expect IMAX 3D. The TV is now $200 cheaper to buy and I really don't care because I am more than pleased with the quality. HD viewing on this TV is fantastic. The picture on some of my weekly episodes is so clear that it appears you are sitting next to the actors. It is a very strange experience to describe because the picture is so amazing. For the price, pony up - you won't be sorry.

P.S. Bought TV from Amazon. Not one complaint. The delivery guys setup the TV and took the box with them. Also bought the 4 year warranty because of my past experiences with other TVs.

Firstly, I must say that I am looking for a very good LED TV since I am one of those unfortunate few that can see Plasma flicker a mile away. I bought this TV after having returned a Panasonic GT50. This set's picture is not as good as the GT50 but I expected as much. The TV actually performed better than I expected with BluRay Movies as well as normal content from DirecTV etc etc. My big issue came with sports. I have to say watching football was horrible on this set. I tried all kinds of settings to no avail. Although I actually like the soap opera effect, I know to turn it off when watching fast action sports like soccer and football. Tried it with every setting on and off. Just very disappointing and downright embarrassing. I ended up returning this set and will purchase the HX850 and am hoping sports viewing will be better. All reviews indicate that the HX850 is much much better - just wish I didn't have to spend so much more. Wish me luck!

As for Amazon - I purchase everything from Amazon and will continue to do so. Being able to return a TV within the 30 day period gives you the ability to seek perfection. Amazon gets 5 stars!

I bought this tv for relatively cheap at $1200 shipped to the door including taxes, so my review takes that into account as well.

1. The good: This TV has a lot to offer, like the LGs and Samsungs it also has the 2d to 3D button that will give some depth to 2D picture. The TV is light, and thin...plenty bright for a living room with lots of windows. Sound is awesome. It supports HDMI ARC which allows it to control certain home theater equipment automatically which is totally awesome. However you do need to buy a special HDMI 1.4b cable Mediabridge Ultra Series - High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet 6 Feet Category 2 Certified - Supports 3D and Audio Return Channel <-- this one worked great for me, and it was cheap. Sound wise the TV is great but i still paired it up with a small system.

Mounting: the TV that I got did not include the base in the box, sony swore up and down to get it to me, but had a back order of 1-2 weeks. I chose to just get a wall mount and mount the TV. The OmniBasics wall mount i got that had a swivel arm, does not fit the TV perfectly because the TV's VESA mounts are made for rails to handle TILT stands, but its ok It fits with the arms showing a little bit on the bottom. But I thought Oh well it can swivel in and out and I am happy.

The 3D glasses look awesome, they are almost stylish... and 5 minutes of charge is all it needs for a whole 3 hour movie.

2. The bad: The Sony Entertainment Network or all the apps that make this TV fun is a very sluggish interface. I ended up just attaching my old ROKU XD which works a lot better. It says Motionflow XR 480. but NO its not a 480hz tv, its only 240hz but still is better than most 120hz and with the price I got, I am happy.
