This review is from: Sony Bravia KDL-52EX700 52-Inch 1080P 120Hz LED HDTV, Black (Electronics)I have had this TV for about 2 weeks and am still stunned by its beautiful picture. The colors are rich and deep and in HD everything is so crisp. This TV is in my Family Room Set-up which includes Pioneer Elite SC-25 receiver, LG Blu-Ray, Boston Accoustics center and surround speakers.
1. Picture (as mentioned above). Although it is close, the picture is better than my 46" Samsung LED-LCD that I have in the bedroom. Colors are warmer and image is just as crisp if not more so even though the screen is bigger. Images from the Blu-Ray are truly stunning
2. Network connectivity. A wireless dongle was included with my set. However, I have hardwired to my LAN so I can't comment on the wireless capabilities. Hooking up to the network was seemless and streaming from a computer on my network was effortless with no hiccups. I haven't streamed HD video yet, so I can't comment.
3. Cabinet. The screen is surrounded by a beautiful high gloss black cabinet. Probably will be a fingerprint and dust magnet. But the design is great.
4. Low energy consumption that all LED's enjoy
1. Base. I really didn't care for the base. So much so that I mounted instead my media center so I wouldn't have to use it.
2. Slow to reflect channel changes when the next channel had a different resolution. Was able to fix to setting cable box to 1080i output only. Channel delay down to less than half a second vs. 2-3 seconds when changing from a 720p channel to a 1080i channel.
3. SD picture nothing to write home about.
I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend this set.

How many watt does your LED LCD tv use? My sister's Sony 52" non-LED LCD uses about 140 watts when watching HDTV.
I got the EX701 52" and it uses around 85 watts with the backlight set to 3. LED is the way to go.
