Sony KDL-55EX500 Review – 55-inch LCD HDTV


Sony definitely looked at providing a few series that come with a relatively lower price tag to augment its sales. Many people who look for their second or third TV do not wish to spend a lot. Keeping this in mind, Sony unveiled the KDL series which is...

Talking about its energy saving capability, it is rated with Energy Star 4, which directly means you have an eco-friendly TV in your living room. View your TV with any lighting conditions and forget about your worries of a higher energy charges as...

Sony Bravia 55" 55HX800 3-D TV


The Sony Bravia 55" HX800 3-D LCD TV produces good picture quality in high definition, standard definition and 3-D. During 3-D quality testing, testers found that the 3-D image disappeared when they titled their heads slightly off-center, but when they...

Incredible value


Buying last year's model is a smart move. A current LED Bravia at 55" is $2,200 and the only difference is LED and 240Hz vs 120Hz/LCD. I can almost guarantee the BRAVIA LCD's look better than LED's from cheaper manufacturers.

Last year's model, so it's a deep discount ; It's a BRAVIA ; Picture is insanely good

Not LED, but I can't tell a difference ; Refurbed, which isn't really a con, but the packaging is pretty bad from Newegg

Sony quality with a high-mid level price that beats the new wave of LED edge-lit TVs ; Extremely strong picture quality - keeps up with any non-LED LCD display ; Great bezel design. Simple and elegant, love the brushed steel look at the bottom ; All...

No 3D compatibility (can only accept 60hz signal and doubles it) ; Power consumption a bit high. Better than any plasma but a bit below average for a higher end non-LED LCD. Of course a decent amount higher than an LED backlit screen ; Thick and heavy,...

As good as expected


Have been enjoying this TV for a few days and really like it. It is probably the best 55 LCD out there. Personally I do not like the LED because I think they are too bright. This one is perfect, big screen and great picture. Although you gotta have a...
