Sony KDL-70R550A

 

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.

"Best TV I have ever owned."

 

Best TV I have ever owned. I bought a Vizio M series and had to bring it back due to light bleed and nonsense widget apps. Bought this and got a free 12 month hulu and netflix subscription with it. FREE! The TV has been seemless, great picture, nice...

"worst tv ever"

 

This product does not work right. It turns off randomly, without warning. If we want to make sure it works for a big game we have to unplug it the night before and replug it in before the game.

it looks nice hanging on the wall

bad product and even worse customer support

"Great tv. Excellent quality for the price."

 

Overall it's a great TV for the man cave if you don't want to drop 2 grand on good plasma.

Sony's smart TV is great and has plenty of apps to go around. Color accuracy is great and has plenty of connectivity even with the smartphones.

The passive 3D isn't good as active in my opinion and is one of the biggest downfalls.

buyer beware

 

I guess new egg is a pretty bad company to do business with. I am extremely disappointed in the service and the delivery also took over a week. This was my first purchase with them and it will also be my last I believe because of this issue.

don't know they don't ship all required parts to make the tv function

They failed to list the item doesn't come with a remote, mounts for the stand, 3d glasses, a user manual on the website after talking over a hour they said the best they could do was issue a 90.00 credit for my trouble but they only guarantee what is...

Response: Good for watching Movies

 

Turn off Motionflow. That is what is lagging the gaming. There may also be a Gaming Mode you can turn on.

Good for watching Movies

 

If all you do is watch movies then great. Not made for gaming at all, way too laggy for that. I also have a 46 inch and runs perfect on it, might just be due to the size. But 3D picture and movies looks amazing. Blacks really look black and I have not...
