Technology


So bright and so thin

Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a radically brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve an ultra-slim TV design that looks beautiful in your home. What's more, Sony's Edge LED Backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail.

Lifelike motion

Watch the football retain its detail during a kickoff and move smoothly as the camera follows it from left to right. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow XR 240 technology, which takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, smoothes out the picture where the camera can't for clearer and more natural movement.

Clearly different

Fine details and textures appear in whatever you’re watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony’s advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won’t find on most televisions.

Receiver-less TV

For DIRECTV customers with a Genie Whole-Home HD DVR, the Sony R550A series allows you to enjoy full DIRECTV service and HD DVR functionality without an additional receiver. Place the Genie Whole-Home HD DVR in any room of the house and enjoy the clean look of your big screen on the wall without the clutter of connecting a DIRECTV receiver to it3.

Go beyond cable with
built-in Wi-Fi

Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and open the door to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and more1.

Your smartphone, now on TV

Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With two ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the R550A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own2,5.


Additional Features


Your smartphone, now on TV

Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With two ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the R550A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own.

1. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally “mirror” what’s seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it’s charging from the TV5.

2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast enabled to the TV2.


Theater-like 3D

Using the same passive 3D technology used in movie theaters, feel the explosive excitement of theater-like 3D. Even the sound profile is enhanced for 3D viewing to provide a more immersive experience4. Slip on the latest generation of light, comfortable 3D glasses to enjoy your favorite 3D movies. Four pairs included.

Against the grain

Dazzle the whole family with ultra-crisp HD clarity and less grain. Digital Noise Reduction enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from USB and other PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid.

I love that this tv is passive 3D = cheap glasses.

Size Name: 70 Inches
I generally like Plasmas for their better picture quality (I already own 5 HD TVs and this is the 6th one). The only reason I decided to go with LED TV was there's no 70" Plasma in the Market. And my 60" looks too small in my great room - possibly because of high ceilings. After researching Sharp's 70" TV I decided to wait for Panasonic to come up with a 70" Plasma, but then Sony came out with this. It was decently priced, had 3D, there were no reviews. But I decided to take a chance - given Sony's reputation. I must say I am not disappointed!

The GOOD:

Overall Picture Quality:
Overall picture quality is good. I would say it is awesome given that it is not a Plasma yet Sony was able to produce brilliant blacks.

720p Quality:
Picture was not pixelated with 720p output from my Verizon box. I was able to see bigger picture without any quality degradation due to bigger size. It was really surprising. The picture was at least as good as on my 60" Plasma on 720p.

1080p Quality:
I put in Avatar bluray movie and played it. I turned off all the lights to see how darks appear. Even with factory settings the result was amazing. After looking at the picture quality of this TV I can no longer argue with my friends that Plasma is superior than LED.

3D:
This TV uses passive 3D!!! And this was a pleasant surprise. I like passive 3D better than active 3D for two reasons.
1. In passive 3D TV produces two images at a time, while each lens in your polarized 3D glasses can see only one image which feeds different images to both eyes - resulting in 3D image in your brain.

See the pics I posted!
It's a great TV, for a good price. I like the remote, but it could have been better.

What I like:

1. It's a Sony.
There's something special about using Sony equipment, especially when you use a lot of their stuff, they work well together.

2. Bravia Sync:
This Bravia sync is cool, and it was unexpected - I can actually control my PS3 with the TV remote - yeah, that rocks. So I can put a blu-ray disk in the PS3, and use the TV remote to pause, play, select options and all that. I've got some other Sony stuff I have to hook up now to see how that single remote works with it. That's just cool.

3. Great Picture:
It looks great. Ok, so I'm coming from a Sony 32" picture tube that isn't properly aligned anymore, but I've taken my time looking at TVs in the stores.

4. The Netflix button:
There's a NetFlix button on the remote. I know, that's not really a big deal, and I know my way around a remote, but it's a cool feature. It's nice that Netflix looks so good on the screen too. Considering my internet speed is just high enough to work most of the time without pauses on NetFlix, the picture is fantastic.

5. Great 3D:
The 3D is very good. I have only tried The Hobbit 3D so far, but my goodness it's smooth and lifelike. I'm looking forward to playing with the controls on 3D tweaks. I've been saving my 3D glasses from theaters for over a year now so I have plenty of glasses for a house full of guests. The Real-3D glasses work great. So do the included Sony 3D glasses.

6. Keyboard and Mouse support via USB:
You can plug in a USB Keyboard and mouse, or a wireless keyboard and mouse, and that does work.

Size Name: 70 Inches Verified Purchase
I got the 70" version of this TV a few weeks back for my new home theater setup. Despite a couple major flaws, overall I am quite happy. Blu-ray movies are stunning. Sitting about 10 feet from the screen, I almost feel like I'm in a theater. Netflix and Amazon video are pretty good too, although since they're not as high bitrate as a blu-ray, you can definitely see some compression artifacts.

This is the first TV I've ordered from Amazon and I was a little scared honestly, but having people bring the TV into your house and set it up for you is quite handy to say the least. They don't plug in all your devices, but they put it on the stand, make sure it works, and will help you place it on your media center table.

Pros:

- Excellent image quality.

- Screen lag is minimal, in regards to video games. I haven't had to use "game mode", the default seems fine.

- Menus are nice and speedy. Some people have said they're are laggy but I don't find that to be the case at all. Of the 3 smart TV's I've owned (the others being LG and Vizio), this one is by far the best when it comes to nagigating menus.

- Fairly good/simple remote. I much prefer the LG Magic Remote but since most remotes are horrible these days, this one is good relative to the average remote.

- Lots of built in video apps - I only need Netflix, Amazon, and Youtube, but there's plenty more to be had.

- Tons of inputs - I don't need them for my setup as my receiver does HDMI switching for me, but it's still nice to have so many built in.

- Passive 3D is a big pro in my opinion. Lighter glasses, less headaches, and no worrying about batteries, what's not to like?
