Sony Bravia KDL-55HX820

 

The Sony KDL-55HX820 is a notch below Sony's top-of-the-line HX929, but it boasts many of the high-end features. The KDL-55HX820 boasts 3D and WiFi, the latter of which offers Sony's new premium suite of content, Qriocity. Top off that package with...

With built-in WiFi, 3D, and 480Hz, the KDL-55HX820 has all the trappings of a high-end set. The problem we have, however, is the TV is almost indistinguishable from other units in Sony’s line-up. Almost all their series feature WiFi and 3D. The only...

Great product

 

I bought the Sony KDL46HX820 just before X-Mas. The TV is great.It was easy to setup. The only problem I have is it takes from 30-60 seconds to boot and present menu options. Hence, the low grade on performance.
