| With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience. |

I considered buying the Samsung 55UNC8000 but after the overwhelming issues with the processing and power cycle, I kept away. I also looked at the LG LX9500 but heard of spotty quality control issues with LG. Not to mention that my current 2010 LG, has been a massive pain with its random power issues (blinking red light and TV shutoff common with LG's. Just Google "LG blinking red light".) Then when the Toshiba 55WX800 came out with its rock bottom pricing of $1600, I jumped all over it only to be sorely disappointed in the quality. It felt like an entry level model and I was really looking for an upgrade. A lot of people seem to like the TV enough, so maybe I just got a severely bum model? In any case, watching the 2010 HDTV Shootout really sealed the deal for me on this. Sony's NX810 rivaled LG's LX9500 (both also trumped Sharp's offering and the Samsung 55UNC800) for the top set in picture quality, colors and black levels. What put Sony over the edge is the far superior 3D experience.
I paid $2,249.00 for this TV from Amazon.com and it included the 3D starter kit and a free Playstation 3. It also came with 3 3D blu-ray movies (Alice in Wonderland 3D, Bolt 3D and Michael Jackson's This is It 3D. The later two are in the form of vouchers in the box.) and 4 download'able 3D PS3 games. Since I am selling my PS3, this TV ends up costing me around 2K which is a stellar value. The Toshiba seemed like a steal at $1600 and I'd happily pay an extra $400 for this model any day.
A note about delivery from CEVA. I ordered this from Amazon on Friday and CEVA delivered it the following Monday at lunchtime with a smile. One business-day later with no issues or damage is a nearly flawless delivery process if you ask me. :)
Here are my pros/cons for the 55NX810:
- Design. The monolithic design is without question the best look LCD available. It's no wonder Sony is moving all their new 2011 models to this new standard "look". It's sleek, modern and very minimalistic.
- Black Levels. Some of the deepest I've ever seen (including plasma.) Panasonic's VT25 series is no doubt the best for black levels, you you'd be hard pressed to find an LCD or other plasma with better blacks.
- Motion processing. It's a Sony. Enough said, you get the world renowned Bravia PRO engine . It really makes viewing feel like a completely new experience.
- 3D. Best 3D image available on the market today. Also does regular 2D to 3D TV conversion which is okay. You really just want to watch 3D content in 3D anyway.
- Absolutely NO clouding/flashlighting whatsoever! The dynamic local dimming works like a charm! I was VERY worried about this because everyone kept telling me that "every LED has this issue". Well let me tell you, they're wrong. I am as picky as they come and I looked and looked and looked for this and couldn't find any of it whatsoever.
- Stand feels wobbly. I know I listed that in my Toshiba review, but I'm afraid to say this one feels very unstable as well. Likely a bi-product of the slim, minimal design and slim pedestal.
- Price. Although I got a stellar deal from Amazon, the MSRP's on Sony TV's are still a hefty premium. But if you have the money, you might as well buy the best.
Since people always comment on picture quality (aka: POQ) of high-end displays and never publish their actual settings, I've included mine below. Personally, this annoys me because many of these people never say that they're looking at (for example) VIVID picture setting or something. So NO WONDER it looks so saturated and like a box of melted Crayola's! Anyway, these settings are a modified version of professionally calibrated THX settings for the Sony 55NX810. I also used the Blu-ray WOW and Blu-ray DVE disks and tweaked a couple things to help the black level, colors, dimming and motion control suit my personal taste, but otherwise they're pretty close to the THX rep's final settings. THX calibrations generally mean minimal video processing and everything set to "off". Personally, I find the "low" settings to be much better looking and seem to fair better in the WOW/DVE calibrations.
Backlight: 4 (THX says 3, but this is largely personal preference)
Picture: 77 (THX says 76)
Brightness: 48 (THX says 50)
Color: 54 (THX says 52)

B-Boas 0 (THX says +6)
Finally, Amazon's holiday 'Cyber-Week' discount pricing and combination bundle deals (3D accessory kit w/Alice 3D AND a 160GB 3D-capable PS3, both free) were way too good to pass up.
So in my usual meticulous way I checked out all the offers of comparably-sized sets on Amazon, as well as reviews online, and I even made a trip to our local Costco to check out their display sets, so I could see for myself the difference between regular LCD, edge-lit LED LCD, plasma, and DLP televisions. Of all of them, it seemed to me the Sony KDL-55NX810 blew the rest away, with only a few of the plasma models coming even close. Between the Samsung and the Sony 3D set-ups there in the store, I felt the latter had the superior 3D effects and shutter glasses, plus overall the Sony looked to be the better quality.
Unlike some folks who bought through Amazon, we had no problem with the Pilot freight shipping. They arrived right within the scheduled time, unboxed the TV, attached it to its base and put it on the cabinet we already had set and ready for it. I had done some prep work, and have a highly customized home theater set-up, so for testing I just took our older Sony blu-ray player and hooked it directly into the TV with an HDMI cable. Having read here about some of the problems of dead sets on arrival or display issues, I'd decided it was only prudent to ensure proper functioning BEFORE the installers left. There were no problems or issues in the TV itself; later I'd find some oddities with the HDMI connections which I now suspect were either cable and/or hand-shaking issues.
- Beautiful, sharp, bright picture, with a high degree of customization possible for personal preference, room conditions, and even decent automatic adjustments based on what the TV thinks you're watching
- 3D was even better than what I sampled in the store, although it does take a little getting used to. Very nice with video games, and good with movies. (We don't have DirecTV, so I can't comment on their 3D programming.)
- Surprisingly wide viewing angles without any distortion or drop-off.
- Integration with other Sony equipment is seamless, so much so that I sometimes have to check to remember whether I'm controlling the TV, or the PS3, or our older no-feature Sony blu-ray player. The TV can even turn on/off and control the volume of our home theater receiver through the HDMI line.
- No problem getting the TV to connect to our home wireless-N network, and the signal is strong enough to stream Netflix without interruption or quality down-stepping. Nice feature about the NX810 is it has wireless and wired Ethernet built right in.
- The provided Sony remote control is pretty nice and well laid out, but has no learning capabilities. (I suspect my spouse is getting me a new universal remote for Christmas...).
- Some HDMI set-up issues for us. Our Denon receiver is supposed to be able to route full HDMI signals to the TV, and to support the latest HDMI standards (including 3D), but it doesn't -- TV says there's no signal. So I connected all our equipment directly to the TV instead, and that helped, and I can get the receiver to work, but reliably only after I added an optical cable to serve as audio return -- which isn't supposed to be necessary either. I've ordered a better/newer HDMI cable to see if this helps. Meanwhile though, the TV does manage to control volume and power on/off for the receiver through the HDMI connection. So I'm still puzzling this one out; if folks have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
- Didn't like the motion-flow default settings. As other reviewers mentioned, while it might appeal to some, it tended to make TV shows and movies look weird and soap opera-ish. No other way to describe it, just that it didn't seem natural.
- As other reviewers have noted, the built-in speakers are rather weak, tinny, with little bass. You can get better sound out of even a hundred dollar 2.1 computer speaker set. Really Sony? Why not include an inexpensive passive sub-woofer with the TV, and beef-up the built-in audio power and speakers just a little? It's worth noting however that none of the thin-screen TVs I checked out had what I'd consider home-theater quality sound.
- Internet video streaming does require a high-speed broadband connection.
- There just aren't that many 3D movies out there yet, and a few of the high-demand ones are locked into ridiculously long exclusivity deals. (I'm looking at you Panasonic: Your reportedly year-long "Avatar" lock-in actually made me -less- likely to buy your product, not more, because I found the exclusion deal personally offensive, even though I really want to see that film in 3D again.)
- The 3D glasses are somewhat on the heavy side, but this is the case with any shutter glasses. When watching 3D movies, you might want to take breaks, at least until you get used to wearing them for extended periods.
- Do have the location ready for when the installers arrive, that way you can have them set up the TV and you can really check to make sure the TV is working right. Don't let them leave until you're certain you're satisfied with the TV. Fact is though, no matter where you buy it, there can be problems during shipping and/or delivery.
- Try to buy big-ticket items like this from stores and vendors with a no-hassle returns policy. Amazon's is great, with 30 days to decide whether you like the TV or not, or to uncover product defects.
- If you don't have an existing home theater audio set-up, I do recommend getting one of those powered TV speaker cabinet-stands they sell, or else a nice 2.1 Harmon-Kardin (or comparable) computer speaker set and hook those up to the TV, either through the audio out in the back or use the headphone jack.
- If you have kids or rambunctious pets, absolutely do ensure the TV is either attached to the wall using a VESA-standard mount, or that the table-top mount is fastened/screwed to the supporting cabinet. It's an important safety measure.
- Check your HDMI cables. Although older cables will usually work, there can be performance and feature issues with old or low speed ones. It's essential to use a high speed cable between your 3D blu-ray player and the TV. (Hint: Use the cable that comes with the 3D accessory kit for the 3D blu-ray to TV connection. It's guaranteed to work.)
- Make sure to go through all the papers and fliers that come with the TV -- we discovered among them a number of unadvertised special promotion items, including several free PS3 3D games (free for download, enter a scratch-off code) and two bonus 3D blu-ray discs (Bolt (yay!) and Michael Jackson (meh)) just for registering our set online with Sony, plus subscription offers for Netflix, Hulu Plus, and more.
Would we recommend this TV to a friend? Yes, definitely.
On edit, August 18 2011: Well, we've had the set for eight months now, and continue to be very happy with it. Nearly all of the audio problems I reported before were apparently HDMI cable-related, but here's the thing: I was always using the correctly rated cables. It's just that some work between one device and another, but move them to a different device and they don't. Or just never properly at all. Anyway, if you get audio cut-out problems or failure for devices to be recognized, my recommendation now is always "get another HDMI cable."
