One of the best-performing LED-based LCDs we've ever tested, the expensive local-dimming Sony XBR-HX929 competes well with the top plasmas.

The Sony XBR-HX929 series produces deeper black levels than any current LCD or plasma TV, giving excellent overall picture quality. It evinces accurate shadow detail and color; offers plenty of video processing options; and can properly handle 1080p/24...

The extremely expensive XBR-HX929 shows some blooming artifacts, and its picture deteriorates more noticeably than usual when seen from off-angle. Its menu and Internet service design is lackluster, and Sony does not include 3D glasses. When displaying...

Last Year’s Sony HDTV Is Still This Year’s LCD to Beat

 

The flagship of Sony's 2011 HDTV line will probably sail into the end-of-life sunset at the end of this year. That's actually a good thing, because you might be able to score one at a price that more accurately reflects its size and capabilities.

Excellent black levels and color accuracy. Crisp, detailed picture. Sleek design. Numerous Web apps

Expensive. 3D glasses cost extra. Awkward external remote connection placement

An outstanding picture quality with inky blacks, an elegant design, and top-notch features make the Bravia XBR-55HX929 a tough HDTV to beat, but you'll pay dearly for this 55-inch beauty.

The first so-called LED TVs were local-dimming models, where the LEDs behind the screen could be dimmed or brightened in different areas to correspond to darker or brighter areas of the picture. The result was excellent contrast, on a level no other...

The XBR-55HX929 is Sony's new 3D LED flagship, which comes with built-in WiFi. The TV should be available in April, although a price point hasn't been announced yet. There isn't much about this TV that's really revolutionary. The best we can tell it's...

We’re a bit confused about the Sony XBR-HX929. Sony’s press conference was full of pageantry, such as a 2-minute Seth Rogan appearance and Cirque de Soleil Elvis dancers, but their TV line is suspiciously devoid of any. There were no ticker-tape...
