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.

"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

Super happy


Some of the reviews complain about flaws that require several exchanges made me apprehensive about buying this TV, but I'm so glad I got it. The full glass is elegant and the chrome stand is attractive too, although the ring shape does not really match...

Great picture, terrible software

An Amazing Viewing Experience


I purchased this TV 5 days ago and was immediately amazed by the quality of the video right out of the box with no tuning. I upgraded from an 8 year old Sony HDTV, so the quality of this set was obvious the minute I turned it on. Blacks render very...

Blacks are black, monolithic design, photos appear crisp and life like

Software UI is lacking, remote control is terrible

Extremely happy with purchase


The picture tube in our 20+ year old 38� RCA Home Theater television burned out recently. After considerable amount of research on LCD, LED and plasma screens, I selected the Sony XBR-65HX950. The new 65� size for the Bravia was one of the main...

Perfect size, video & audio quality
