5.0 out of 5 stars Great TV, April 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony BRAVIA KDL55HX850 55-Inch 1080p 3D LED Internet TV (Black) (Electronics)
After much researching, comparing, and waiting, we finally got our LED TV. After the very first initial setup of the TV, the custom picture settings were not accessible (greyed out) so I had to reset the TV to its factory condition and run the setup again. This time all options were accessible. So far, we are very pleased with the TV. Of course, only time will tell how reliable it is; but it is great at the moment. The delivery was fast and as scheduled (Amazon had an option to schedule a delivery on a certain day and at a certain time). I was concerned about possible reflections (it is glass after all) but that is not an issue at all. So far we have not noticed any motion blur like on older LED TVs. Overall - very pleased.

4/30/2012 If while watching movies (BD/DVD) the so called "soap opera effect" bothers you, you can change the Scene Selection to Game. I have not noticed it that much while watching TV programs but the effect was very much present while watching BD movies. After changing it to "game" it is not much of an issue.

ONLY turn off motionflow. Changing to game mode will turn off almost all other picture enhancements as well, in order to reduce lag input. The other enhancements are the entire point of buying a tv this expensive.
