(Editor's note: This review of the Sony NX800 series is based on our hands-on testing and evaluation of the 52-inch Sony Bravia KDL-52NX800. According to the manufacturer, the image quality and features should be equivalent for each TV in this model...

Built-in Wi-Fi ; Generally good image quality ; Handsome, big-screen set ; Strong Internet features

Supports very few multimedia formats ; Some features are difficult to find or set up ; Pricey

The Sony Bravia NX800 Series delivers respectable audio/video quality and a ton of Internet features, but suffers from annoying design issues.

The Sony Bravia KDL-52NX800 looks great on paper: a 52-inch LED TV with a 240Hz refresh rate, built-in Wi-Fi, and the most impressive lineup of Internet services we've seen to date. But a number of usability issues undermine the set's performance; and...

Once considered the top manufacturer in everything electronic, Sony is still a big fish, but in a much, much larger pond. The company continues to produce high quality, industry-leading products, and its latest generation of HDTVs is no exception. At...

Smooth, crisp HD picture. Integrated Wi-Fi. Attractive, intuitive design. Built-in cable organizer. Recessed power port. Familiar Sony XrossMediaBar interface

Pricey set for a set that doesn't support 3D. Very limited viewing angle. So-so SD performance

Sony's 52-inch KDL-52NX800 HDTV boasts a slick and thoughtful design and comes with lots of extras including integrated Wi-Fi and plenty of Web apps. Unfortunately, the picture quality you get with this LED-based set isn't in line with its high price.

Editors' note, March 1, 2010 : Updated review to correct features and overall ratings.

Excellent design with stylish monolithic exterior; ergonomic remote control; snappy menu system; relatively accurate color; built-in Wi-Fi; solid Internet services including Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, niche video services, and Yahoo Widgets;...

Relatively expensive; reproduces lighter black levels; darker areas tinged blue; cannot adjust dejudder processing much; less-even screen uniformity; glossy screen reflects ambient light; Netflix image quality worse than on other streaming devices.

Despite a picture that won't wow sticklers, Sony's edge-lit LED-based NX800 sets a high bar for its beautiful design and well-executed features.

If budget is not an issue, then perhaps the 60" Sony BRAVIA NX800 Series HDTV is for you. Sony has yet to release a large screen 3D-enabled LCD HDTV, so competitors like Samsung have the leg-up for features such as 3D capability. Needless to say, this...

Not too long ago, LED backlighting was a feature in only a few premium flat-panel LCD sets. Now you can find it everywhere, including six series in Sony's 2010 lineup of BRAVIA LCD HDTVs. The top three—the LX900, HX900, and HX800 series—are either 3D...

Sony's PiP option can overlay two images. One of the sources must be from a PC, and the other must be from either a TV program from the onboard tuner or a composite video input. This limits the feature's usefulness.

Product Specifications

The Sony Bravia KDL-NX800 Series LCD TV is a great looking TV in both the hardware and the picture quality. It uses one smooth sheet of glass to cover the entire front, making the bezel blend in smoothly with the TV picture and creating a smooth, nice looking finish. Removable panels on the back hide unnecessary ports, but allow access to the NX800's wide range of input ports when desired. The NX-800 can be connected to the internet to allow streaming from a variety of popular services, including Netflix and Amazon, as well as some audio-streaming services. Built-in Wi-Fi makes that connection easier, as well as allows syncing and streaming of media stored on your home network. Being and LED-backlit TV, the NX800 uses very little power and has good black levels. Overall, the Sony Bravia KDL-NX800 Series LCD TV is a great, feature-packed TV with good picture quality.
