Sony Bravia KDL-46HX729

 

The KDL-46HX729 ($1709 MSRP) is a relatively high-end model in Sony's line-up. They certainly didn't skimp on the feature set: 3D display, a huge collection of streaming content, built-in WiFi, DLNA support, and a super-thin profile thanks to the LED...

Whites so bright you can watch in daylight ; Excellent color performance ; Great motion performance

Flickering 3D gave us a headache

The Sony Bravia KDL-46HX729 ($1709 MSRP) came out of our labs gleaming, though we expect no less from Sony TVs above a certain price point. The color performance was exemplary. The black level could have been a little darker, but the incredibly bright...

Sony Bravia KDL-55HX729

 

The KDL-55HX729 is a few steps down from Sony's top of the line, but it retains a lot of the high-end features. The KDL-55HX729 supports 3D playback (glasses, as always, are a separate purchase), built-in WiFi over 802.11n, and Sony's new stable of...

The KDL-55HX729 has all the features of the high end and has very, very similar picture quality. This unit is due out a month after the flagship, so we’re guessing it will offer a lower price point than the flagship when it launches. Overall, though,...

A higher-end Sony stuffed with features, with good general performance, but weak 3D

Sony HX729 / HX720

 

Sony HX729 (HX720 in Europe) is a slim Edge LED based TV with all of Sony's key features, including 3D, Bravia Internet Video, the X-Reality Pro engine and a range of other multimedia features.

Fairly good picture quality; Response time ; 3D detailing

Black depth not as good as expected ; Smart TV platform not very good ; Inputs point out towards wall ; 3D effect gone when head is tilted

Sony HX729 (HX720 in Europe) incorporates Sony’s full Bravia Internet Video platform but Sony is not allowing users to download their own TV Apps. We understand that Sony has invested their Smart TV efforts into the Google TV platform but right now...

I am in love

 

i started out with an LG plasma "50ps60" which was.... ok. nothing special a grainy blu ray picture at best and average broadcast hd. i decided to upgrade to something bigger and better hah. i browsed through various 55" samsung led's and initially...

240hz lives up to its claims. as full of wireless and multimedia features as any set on the market. unbelievable speed and clarity. mind boggling ergonomics. very aesthetically pleasing menu options integrates what you're viewing with menu options

not as adept to warm color temps. menu options are pretty complex. slight glare in certain light. the stand that comes with it isn't the greatest

One of the best tv's on the Market.

 

I spent weeks reading and going into stores just trying to make a good decision lets face it in today society we work to hard to buy junk. Would definitely buy it again in a hartbeat.

This tv is great for the price the picture quality it is amazing and the 3d is great. Also all the other features this television has will make u happy

The sound is good overall but not that strong. I purchased the sony soundbar with the wireless sub now I have a complete entertainment system

Very Good Value Large Screen

 

Well-designed, well-built easy to use and especially to hook up. I have used Sony for too many years to bore you. I was upgrading my biggest screen TV which is in the Home Theatre during these Super Bowl sales at the big box. 3 years free interest...

picture clarity, ease of set-up and use, reliability of Sony

I use the stand and it is a little flimsy, but it's my own d&^n fault

Best that I could find for the $$

 

I would buy it again tomorrow

Picture quality, Wi-Fi, Internet access - all the preloaded Net Flix, etc

The "Simulated" 3D function is weak
