X-Reality PRO Picture Engine

Enjoy lifelike picture quality in each scene with everything you watch—HD movies, sports, even YouTube clips and home movies—is presented with unprecedented detail, and astonishing color as Sony's exclusive X-Reality PRO picture engine draws on its database of real patterns, shapes and textures to display our most lifelike picture ever.

Dynamic Edge LED

Perfecting a natural look, Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with local dimming allows for an exceptionally slim design while delivering pitch-black night scenes and illuminates bright scenes that pop with vibrant color. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right spots for a more realistic picture.




Motionflow XR 480 Technology

Motionflow XR 480 technology takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to double the motion effect for lifelike clarity. 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.

I've now had this TV for about 3 weeks and absolutely love it. Beautiful and thin design with lots of cool little apps though to be honest, you'll end up using your iPhone or iPad over them. The true reason I got this TV was for its HD quality and 3D capability and boy do both shine. Whether I'm watching an HD show, Blu-ray or 3D, the colors are always vivid with no bleeding, especially of reds. Black are deep and the brights are bright but realistic bright.

A lot of times, people are fooled by fake bright which might seem "brighter" but isn't actually real. This TV is part of a few TV's that I've seen show real colors. If you enjoy HD content, have Blu-ray movies, this is the TV for you. An extra bonus is the edition of 3D which I enjoy quite a bit, especially when gaming with the PS3.

This TV is awesome. It is like having a home cinema in your bedroom. We bought both this TV and the top range Samsung. While the Samsung has more contrast, it back lighting is quite dark, detracting from the viewing experience. The Sony however is bright and uniform; extremely high quality. The ONLY thing Sony needs to work on is their user interface. In the end there are just too many buttons and keypads required to switch between cable, AppleTV, and Video Unlimited for instance..

I received the TV on the day promised and the men who delivered took the old TV away, installed and set-up the new TV. It has been working great. I have used the TV in both 2D and 3D configurations and it was outstanding in both configurations. The only problem I have had is getting my Bose home entertainment system to work with the TV.

240hz refresh rate really makes a difference in picture quality. I have this same type tv (kdl55hx800) in my living and got this one for the home theater. Same great picture, both of them.

Great Tv. Had a Sony Bravia XBR before. This is as good as that one. Picture is crystal clear. Kids love it. 3D viewing is great! Would recommend.
