Everything I Expected

by Kyle on 3/27/2012

This is a very sharp looking TV. Some reviews I read mentioned picture quality decreasing some at wide angles. Our TV isn't centered in the room compared to seating and it hasn't been a problem for us. It is only 1/4 of an inch taller than than my 46" XBR5 so using essentially the same space, I've gained some screen size. I use separate speakers and receiver so I can't really comment on sound quality from the TV.

Excellet TV overall

on 6/2/2012

This is truly one of the top two sets currently available. Bright, great black levels. Excellent color, very adjustable. Earlier HX929 sets had issues with "creases" in the picture edges which do not appear here. I do not see any blooming either. Off axis quality drops as with all LCD direct view sets, but a little sooner than most. Not a problem for most reasonable viewing positions. Stand is solid unlike the 55. Highly recommended!
