    good price for a Sony, December 11, 2011

    This review is from: Sony KDL55BX520 55-Inch Bravia BX520-Series LCD HDTV (Electronics)

    My mom bought a Sony Bravia 40″ LCD like 4 years ago for $1,100. Recently, i had to replace the TV in my room so since prices have gone down in the years, i can now afford to go bigger. I decided to move the 40″ Sony into my room and get a 55″ for the Living room. My mom wanted another Sony Bravia cuz she liked the one she had before. Originally i went to Frys for a different TV but stumbled upon this one for $799. Seemed like a really good deal for a Sony. Besides, the other one i was gonna get was Plasma and i like LCD better cuz there’s less glare. And since it was a Sony Bravia it worked out perfectly

    Set up was a 2 person job but pretty simple. After i set it up i was looking for the power cable in the box and realized it was attached to the tv. It’s not detachable so that may be an issue for others. Mine sits on a tv stand so it’s all good. and there’s a piece that was supposed to hide the screws but i didn’t even bother putting it on cuz u can’t tell.

    As for the TV Quality:
    I’m not sure if it’s the size of the tv but the HD channels don’t look as crisp as they did on the 40″. I figured that might be the case since it has to stretch the image a bit more to fit the 55″. So i connected my blu-ray player with HDMI and played some movies at 1080p. Looks much better than 1080i cable but not as good as the 40″. I work as a Video Editor so I’m very picky with quality. However, my parents don’t notice. Then again they can’t tell Standard Definition from High Definition…
    The Motion flow is ok, it does improve the focus on moving images, though this doesn’t concern me as much as image sharpness. The 40″ is 60 Hz so the 55″ takes the win.
    The contrast ratio is good. This was the major problem i had with past TVs. When playing dark games or watching dark movies, much of the detail was lost. finding middle ground left everything hazy. Both Sonys have good blacks, whites, and colors.
    The sound is ok, not as good as the 40″ but i won’t get into much of that. I rely on my 5.1 surround sound for that. If you’re looking for audio quality, invest in a 5.1 surround sound with OPTICAL input.

    As for the design:
    Cons: The frame is glossy and kinda big. Also the power cable is not detachable, i can imagine this being problematic for some.
    Pros: LCD display has almost no glare in my living room where there are lots of windows.

    Overall, I’m happy with the purchase. It was a good deal for the brand and size. i wouldn’t pay more than $800 for this tv considering I’ve seen 60″ LCDs for $900. The quality is good for the size. Don’t mean to sound like a snob but the average viewer can’t tell 720p from 1080p anyway.

    A few tips for those new to High Definition Home Theaters:
    Plasma has nice color, but lots of glare so they are best for dark rooms.
    LCD has less glare.
    LED has low glare and nice blacks.
    HD cable only broadcasts at 1080i so don’t worry about getting 1080p unless you have a Blu-ray player.
    WIFI READY DOES NOT MEAN BUILT-IN WIFI. You have to buy an adapter for WiFi ready TVs.
    If you want 1080p use HDMI
    If you want true 5.1 surround, invest in one with OPTICAL input.

    A warranty replacement from a Samsung too expensive to fix, December 22, 2011
    By 
    EngrPaul “EngrPaul” (Pennsylvania) –
    This review is from: Sony KDL55BX520 55-Inch Bravia BX520-Series LCD HDTV (Electronics)

    I received this TV new, but as a replacement from my extended warranty company. I had a 52″ Samsung LCD that was too expensive to fix.

    While the picture quality is as-good-as, I had to supplement the TV with a soundbar/subwoofer HT-CT150 combo to achieve sufficient sound quality and volume.

    Only 2x10W speakers is a joke for a LCD TV where there is plenty of space for big speakers and amplifier components. I can understand how slim LED TV’s having underpowered audio due to size limitations. I guess LCD’s are a dying breed and they give them the same lame audio drivers until they completely go away.

    == Pros ==
    55″ Screen.
    Great picture quality.
    Handsome appearance.
    Bravia works good with other Sony components.
    Wide mode enables viewing 4:3 input signals full-screen with less stretching.
    Input/output including PC, component, and digital optical audio.
    USB for pictures, video, music, thought limited formats.
    Packaged really well and easy to setup.
    Easy menus.

    == Cons ==
    Horribly weak sound.
    Anti-reflective screen SPREADS light reflections and actually makes it HARDER to view the picture.
    Wobbly stand: Set acts like a pendulum side-to-side if bumped.
    No Audio Return Channel (Doesn’t send audio via HDMI to a theater system).
    Only 2 HDMI inputs, no S-Video input.
    No backlighting on the remote control
    Slow to startup when turned on.
    TV cannot change HDMI inputs on the Sony Theater system, despite both being Bravia and syncing correctly.
    Thin owner’s manual.

    For the way I use a TV, I am satisfied with my warranty replacement TV. Based on my multiple bad experiences with Samsung, I am extremely glad to have a Sony-branded product.

    If I was purchasing a TV for myself, I would NOT go with the traditional LCD with CCFL (fluorescent) backlighting, I would definitely spring for LED backlighting. I would need to buy an external audio system either way.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Sony KDL55BX520 55-Inch Bravia BX520-Series LCD HDTV (Electronics)

    We purchased this for under 1k through Amazon and it arrived 4 days later. Setup was painless. Tv comes with 2 hdmi inputs and 1 set of AV jacks, enough to suit our needs.

    Speakers are mounted on the underside offering somewhat better sound than our rear speaker 46″. The picture and controls were easily adjusted and simple to understand.

    The only issue we have found so far is the headers during searches suggest this unit was wi-fi ready but that is not the case, THIS TV IS NOT WIFI READY. We are using a wifi bluray so this is not a huge issue overall. The other confusing part is the 120 mh motionflow which I understood to be an
    enhanced 120 but it appears to be an enhanced 60mh , we are still trying to confirm this but I will say whatever it is is good enough for our eyes.

    We watched transformers 1 and 2 and the picture was fantastic with no studders or blurring.

    For the low cost and large size we don’t feel we could have done better for an everyday viewer, and the Sony picture blows the samsung picture relatives have out of the water.
