Sony XBR-55HX950

 

If you forget, for a joyless, mercifully brief moment, the existence of Sharp's Elite and a few 75-inch , 80-inch , and 84- inch LCDs, the Sony XBR-HX950 is the most expensive major-label TV of the year. It costs more than any 2012 TV set in its size...

The Sony XBR-HX950 series produces deeper black levels than any current LCD or plasma TV, giving excellent overall picture quality. It evinces accurate color, offers plenty of video-processing options, and can properly handle 1080p/24 sources. It also...

The extremely expensive XBR-HX950 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...

Although it's priced higher and performs worse than the best plasmas, the Sony XBR-HX950 is still one of the top-performing LED TVs ever.

"do your research before buy any Sony product"

 

After 2.5 (good!) years using my XBR top of the line overpriced TV one board went faulty. Call Sony USA tech support, spent 6 hours and this went nowhere. Sent email - no replyes. I used to love Sony, had TV,VSR, audio,etc.. Wanted to buy

Very nice TV/picture/audio WHILE working

unreliable, no support from Sony, they know about problem but decided do nothing about it. Not same Sony as we used to know.

"Excellent LED Great black levels"

 

Excellent PQ. This may be the last full array local dimming set manufactured. Hoping this set lasts @least 10 yrs. by then 4 K should be reasonable priced. Excellent motion handling for fast paced sports. No blooming, flashlighting or DSE on my set....

Gorilla Glass, thin profile looks nice on wall when turned off. Excellent PQ. Inky blacks

Price- should be a $2700 set

"A Winning Combination of Technology and Quality"

 

I have owned several high def TVs including a Pioneer Elite and several Samsungs. This TV outperforms them all. While Samsung tend to lead with innovation I have found their sets lacking the quality of construction compared to this Sony. Both the fit...

Incredible inky deep colors with great clarity

Price but worth every penny

I Love this TV

 

I researched several types of the Sony TV's, went stores looking then waiting on sales. It has proven my research and patience. I have used it now for over a month and I have nothing but good things to say. The picure is GREAT and the set-up was...

The *Best* LED TV ever made

 

This is the best LED TV ever made. I work in a big box store and sell TV's all day. This XBR HX 950 and the Panasonic VT50 are the best TV's on the market.

Exceptional Quality

 

I purchased this TV from Sony early October and have been very pleased since. Over all quality and experience have been outstanding. There are some issues with the boot up time of certain applications. It would be nice for the kids to just press the...

Amazing!!!!!!

 

This TV preformed flawlessly right out of the box! Wireless set was a snap. Sports and action movies are incredible to watch with real life color and amazing detail. Friends who stop over are very impressed with the picture quality. What a difference...

Every thing about this tv is awesome

Nothing

The best in class Feb 2013

 

A large investment - yes. But like any large investment, the last thing you want is to ask after a few weeks - "Maybe i should have paid more for a better one". This is something which is going to last years until the 4K TV is standard and we have...

Picture quality, looks, sexy TV in the lounge

Menus, 3D alignment
