Top LED picture of 2012, but a poor value

 

Sony's best LED ever has the best non-plasma picture of 2012, but it's very expensive.

The ; 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 has a beautiful,...

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.

Sony XBR-55HX950 3D LCD HDTV

 

When this is done in zones to allow some portions of the image to remain bright while others are darkened, the technique is called “local dimming.” Not all LED-lit LCD sets use it (it's expensive to implement), and some that do locate the LEDs at the...

Sony Bravia XBR-55HX950

 

Sony's flagship may be pricey, but it's a quality performer all-around.

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
