Sony KDL-60R550A

 

The most mainstream series in that lineup are the "R" models, namely the R520/R550. The two are basically identical but for 3D on the R550. The series is solid performer, and while it does have a couple of other gimmicky features, it succeeds in...

The Sony R520/R550 series offers excellent value and very good picture quality among its peers; relatively deep black levels; matte screen leads improves bright-room performance; attractive styling with unique stand.

Even better values are available; colors aren't entirely accurate; the different Smart TV interfaces can be confusing and a little slow; Screen mirroring didn't work on our sample.

The big-screen Sony R520/R550 series offers the best value you'll see from the company this year.

Sony KDL-60R550A 1080p 3D LED TV

 

Colors rendition on these new Sony TVs is exceptional and not over-saturated. The fact that the TVs calibrate easily to D6500K speaks to their color accuracy. The backlight is extremely powerful and can overpower color in the R550A so keep it moderated...

Color rendition is realistic and not over saturated and the TV calibrated near D6500K even though there is only a 2 point white balance control setting on this TV. The custom setting is set fairly close to D65 from the start. There are also only 3...

Worth every penny

 

I downgraded from a 65" Toshiba rear projection, and I was a little worried about it. All my worries were for naught. Though a little smaller, the picture on this TV is a million times clearer. For the first few days (until I was used to it) the screen...

Does exactly what it says it does. Only small issue I have is that the USB function doesn't play all of my video files, says that audio format isn't compatible. I have it mounted to the wall in my room and the picture quality is beautiful.
