Sony KDL-40NX700 LED LCD HDTV Review - Intro

 

The Sony KDL-40NX700 ($1699) is a slender TV that has enough bells and whistles to grab your attention, but it may have a hard time justifying its price premium over the Sony EX series. The NX700 features built-in WiFi, but both TVs offer excellent...

The Sony KDL-40NX700 is a strong performer, and undoubtedly attractive. It's loaded with features that fatten up the spec sheet, and some of them are actually useful. The streaming video package of features is truly excellent, and it hands-down the...

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40NX700

 

The Sony KDL-40NX700 is high-end model near the top of Sony's product line. The 40-inch, 1080p HDTV, is quite thin, thanks to the slenderizing possibilities of the edge-lit LED backlighting, which take up less trunk than a traditional LCD television....

The key feature that separates the NX700 series from the lower-priced EX700 series is built-in WiFi. Both series have a hardwire ethernet connection, and EX700 series provides the option for a WiFi dongle that plugs into the USB port (for a mere $79...

good picture quality, beautiful design

 

tip, the manufacturers color settings weren't as good as the settings I found in the cnet forums: Backlight: 5 Picture: 54 Brightness: 65 Color: 54 Hue: G5 Color Temp: COOL Sharpness: 4 Noise reduction: LOW Mpeg reduction: LOW

picture quality is very good. colors are great. wireless connection, great for pandora, netflix and full suit of other streaming contents sites, including hulu premier. built in speakers produce good sound quality

the edges are slightly washed with light. image sharpness isn't the very best, but it's good. black levels get a little muddy

Buyer beware w/this TV

 

Be aware of Sony's option to replace w/refurbished TV not new model. The "computer" part of the TV was not communicating w/other computer parts. Two parts were replaced and TV still would not "communicate" and work. Defective TV or bad TV??

Great picture

TV stopped working after 3 months. Attempt to repair thru Sony service under warranty. Repair not possible. Sony offered "refurbished" replacement of 3 month old TV. Reviewing our options thru store where purchased

Product Specifications

The Sony KDL-NX700 Series LCD TV is an amazing television. The edge LED backlighting provides a number of advantages. It saves power, allows for an amazingly slim body, and can generate high contrast ratios through the use of local dimming. It has internet connectivity features which allow content streaming from a number of major online media providers, including Netflix, YouTube, and Pandora. It also connects to your home PC to stream media you have stored locally, through a specially designed interface. The front of the TV is a beautifully constructed single sheet of glass, which makes the bezel blend in smoothly with the screen. The Sony KDL-NX700 Series LCD TV has 4 HDMI ports, a USB port, an Ethernet port, and several audio out ports. This is a great HD TV which has about every feature that you would expect from a modern TV.
