The Sony KDL-55EX720 is a fine value as a solid-performing 2D set, with accurate color, good detail, and some of the best black levels and shadow detail I’ve seen in this price range. In 3D, it shows considerable ghosting. While that may put off some...

Sony BRAVIA KDL-55EX720 3D LED TV

 

Sony's cheapest 3D LED TV has good picture quality for a reasonable price

Low price (even lower on sale) ; Good picture quality

Minor loss of detail in default settings ; Minor LED backlight bloom

Sony's middle-of-the-pack EX720 has all the bells and whistles of more expensive models, apart from Wi-Fi (a $99 extra). In its default settings, picture quality is OK rather than great, but some minor changes can dramatically improve video at the...
