I have owned three tv's (this is my second JVC)and it is a definite step ahead of any previous set I've owned. I'm very pleased with the ease of setup (3 minutes from box to TV stand)! The picture size is the factor weighing the most in my decision to purchase this product-I have issues with my eyes-and I'm not regretting buying it at all. The 3D sound wasn't for me, but I had it all customized in minutes and haven't had to tweak anything. Kudos.
Color integrity, motion performance, and viewing angle are actually above average
Right off the bat, we feel it's necessary to point out that $800 for a 47-inch LCD is pretty fair. You'd pay about the same amount for a 2012 Samsung of the same size. This TV is very basic, but if it's within your budget range, it will get the job done.
From a picture quality standpoint, this isn't the top-tier of tech, but we've seen much worse. This JVC offers the full range of colors, accurately and richly, without any bunk processing or oversharpening.
Glad I went with the bigger TV
I was looking for a new TV for the bedroom. I was debating between this TV and the the 39" Samsung for the same price. I was leary because there was no reviews yet on this TV. I could not be happier with the purchase. The picture is awesome and the sound quality for a flat screen is great. I would definitely reccomend this to a friend or family member.
Delivers a very strong picture quality performance for an edge-lit LED/LCD TV.
The picture quality aspects of the Sony 55HX850 is certainly its best traits as we found some of the features lacking or absent. There are significant picture controls, lots to test, but ultimately the TV produces a very nice picture with most of the "extra" picture features turned off and proper calibration plugged in. The essential premium Internet Apps are covered. The speakers/audio quality is a pleasant surprise, while the menu is disappointing.
A top-notch contrast ratio and colors on this TV are very good.
When all is said and done, the 55HX850 (MSRP $2,600) proves that Sony still knows a thing or two about crafting TVs.
There are plenty of good reasons to consider checking this Sony out, chief among them the TV's picture quality. The 55HX850 has a superb contrast and great colors. This Sony's 3D experience is also great, with no noticeable image ghosting found during our testing. Did we mention that the 55HX850 is a looker, too?
Internet functionality is where this flagship stumbles.
Beautiful picture with excellent colors and the blackest blacks
The good news is that Sony' HX850 displays a uniformity of picture quality no matter the source - streaming, over-the-air HD, Blu-ray discs, and MKV-MP4 files from a USB hard drive.
One stumbling block: 3-D. It's only so-so, and it requires a pair of Sony-made glasses, as the company doesn't use one of the cross-compatible standards other manufacturers are relying on. Still, I'm not going to let the bummer 3-D experience sour me on this television.
One of the nicest looking TV sets around.
When compared to the Sony HX820, this is a superior model, which is actually saying quite a lot since that model is a truly amazing TV set. The picture quality is higher and the blacks couldn't get any blacker than they are on this one. Sony has long been considered the king of technology and it when it comes to this Sony KDL55HX850 this is so true. Sony has risen up to the challenge by providing a top-notch TV that is as close to perfect as you can get.
Picture quality is fantastic, even straight out of the box
At $2100 and $2600 (for the 46-inch and 55-inch models, respectively) the HX850 is on par with its LED competition in terms of price - it's certainly more affordable than Panasonic's WT50 - while producing a picture that can compete with plasmas like Panny's VT50. That's a rare talent.
Best big-screen lcd TV value
Is an outstanding value highly accurate color and very good bright-room performance, deep black levels with great shadow detail,Out-of-the box the picture of the Magnavox 50MF412B/F7 is excellent,the quality in picture and sound exceeds any of the more expensive brands.
The main trouble with judging TV sets based on their contrast ratios is that there are no industry standards for these ratios.
This is one fine TV!
First off, I got this 60" plasma at the ridiculous bargain price of $698 from the Audio and Video Center in Santa Monica. I was initially worried about buying the cheapest model in its class -- everything else was double the price -- but this box rocks!
Beautiful deep rich colors, perfectly good -- no matter what the other guy says -- sound and easy setup. Armed with a $79 BluRay, you'll have a REALLY economical, .REALLY awesome smart TV.
Price and Features Make It a Good Buy
Had the TV for 2 weeks, so far I am pleased. I'll begin with the TV's picture - it is excellent, colors, detail, etc...are excellent.
The 3D is excellent.The 2D to 3D conversion is excellent.
This plasma does have the "Soap Opera Effect" - which you can remedy by changing the picture setting to "Game Mode". I have the TV in Game Mode 24/7 and have no problems with that at all.
That's where I deduct half a star - literally my only complaint.
Setup was super easy, instructions were clear, and everything was included that I needed. Great blacks, color, clarity, and plenty of color customization options. No digital artifacts or motion-blur and no common plasma-myths at all: low glare which I was surprised about, no odd noises, no signs of any burn-in. As with all flat panels, the sound could be richer, but I've heard much worse on other panels. No problems to report and hope it stays that way!
Nice HD picture, problems with SD
The TV looks very nice sitting on my cabinet. The borders are thin enough that most people would probably mistake it for an LED. Unlike the TV that I'm replacing, the black tinted screen does a good job of minimizing reflections. I like the chrome plated stand which looks way better than the plastic stands found on cheaper models. The rear jack panel is well laid out with ample connection options. LG includes a ring that keeps your cables wrangled into a nice neat group.
