A consumer's take on upgrading to 3D, 55 in. and LED
Overall I believe the picture looks great with a couple of tweaks from the default settings. One of the first things I did was disabled the Motion Flow and Cinema Flow settings. The 240Hz frame interpolation gag that i am not a big fan of. Colors are vibrant and the image is sharp.
Since this is an LED, there is some visible light vignetting around the corners and a light leak running along the bottom of the frame. It's most noticeable while watching in a dark room.
Super natural color rendition and solid saturation levels.
So what kind of value is the KDL-55HX750 at $1899. Well, certainly better than the 46" version which costs $1499. This is a solid TV with a good, but not great picture. It's loaded with features too, some easier to use than others. There are some frustrating aspects to this TV which are hard to overlook. There are no 3D glasses included with the HX750. With other LED TVs this set competes OK on price. The LG 55LM7600 or the Samsung UN55ES6500 are pretty comparable units, though less in price.
Excellent picture quality and plenty of options for customizing the picture.
The Sony Bravia KDL-46HX750 (MSRP $1599) seems influenced by the motto "function over form." Aesthetically, it is an average looking TV, but its screen has a good contrast ratio (3386:1) and displays colors nicely. Sony's menu system also lacks a nice form, yet there is an abundance of options to choose from, giving the user plenty of control to customize the TV to his or her specifications.
In regards to the 3D experience, Sony again chooses function over form.
Offers unparalleled color accuracy for this LCD TV.
The Sony KDL46HX750 is a great TV for viewers that are used to the Sony quality of picture and the reputation of the company itself. While there are a lot of good features to this TV set it is questionable whether it is worth the price tag it has been given. If you're a diehard Sony fan, however, it will be worth the price you pay and you will end up with a high quality TV set with endless features.
