Sony Bravia KDL-55HX850

 

Sony's Bravia HX850 series is a gorgeous but pricey HDTV line offering LED backlighting, 3D support, Web features galore, and accurate out-of-the-box color—if only the contrast ratio were higher.

Attractively designed. Excellent image detail. Wide viewing angles. Accurate colors. Energy efficient

Pricey, and 3D glasses not included. Low contrast ratio

At $2,600, Sony’s KDL-55HX850 is a bit pricey, especially when compared with our Editors’ Choice for Budget HDTVs, the $1,430 Vizio M3D550KD . Still, it is $900 less expensive than the same-size LG’s 55LM9600 , and outperforms that set in every way,...

Sony Bravia KDL-55HX850

 

Sony's flagship is plenty powerful, but a muddled interface makes it less “smart” than the competition

The design of this TV is quite attractive.; A top-notch contrast ratio.; Colors on this TV is very good

Sony’s split-personality internet platform needs work

Sony Bravia KDL-55HX850

 

With its one-sheet-of-glass design, the Sony Bravia KDL-55HX850 offers rather good 3D, excellent 2D and a good range of network smarts.

Very good 2D picture ; Reasonably good 3D ; Good network content ; Good tablet/phone control feature

No PVR function

It costs quite a bit more than the next model down, but nonetheless the Sony Bravia KDL-55HX850 is a worthwhile step up in performance.

The Bravia KDL-40HX850 is a good buy if you are looking for overall performance. It does everything that would you expect of a high-end LED, though it fails to awe you with any of the features.
