    Excellet TV overall, Oustanding when viewed from front and center, September 25, 2011

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    As of this writing (Sept. 25, 2011), I’ve had the Sony XBR-55HX929 for just over two months, so I thought it was about time I shared my impressions of it. Nothing I have to say differs significantly from what other (positive) reviews have said, but I thought I’d contribute to the collective wisdom.

    Let me start off with a bit of context: I have had, at least briefly, five HDTVs since March 2011: a 62″ Mitsubishi WD-62525 (a rear projection TV with 720p native resolution), a Panasonic TC-P55ST30 (plasma), a Samsung PN59D6500 (also a plasma), a Samsung UN55D6900 (an LED edge-lit LCD), and the Sony XBR-55HX929 (LED backlit LCD with local dimming). The Mitsubishi died in late March and I have been searching for a replacement. As you can see, I’ve tried out just about the full array of TV technologies. My search has ended with the Sony XBR-55HX929, and I am very happy with it. I will compare the Sony with some of the other sets I’ve had below.

    There are a number of concerns that owners or prospective owners of the Sony have had, so let me address those. First, the build date. I ordered my set from Amazon.com on July 9, it shipped on the 13th and was delivered the 20th. It was assembled in Mexico in March 2011.

    The dreaded “crease”: Yes, mine has the crease (a slightly darker “line” that appears along the sides of the image on many of these Sonys, usually on the left and right, but sometimes along the top and bottom edges, about an inch in from the bezel). I have fairly faint creasing on both the left and right sides. It seems a bit darker towards the bottom of the screen.

    However: I agree with many owners and contributors to discussion forums that under normal viewing circumstances–when you are watching “real content” rather putting up a uniform (or nearly uniform) field of color for inspection purposes–I never notice it. My wife has never noticed it, nor has anyone who has come over to see the set. I can see it on the PS3′s home screen, but that hardly bothers me. It surprises me a bit that I say this, since I am quite picky and minor imperfections often irritate me to no end (this is one reason I’ve gone through all the sets mentioned above!). If I could see it when I viewed typical content, I’d return the set. But I don’t. As it is now, I wouldn’t dream of returning the set.

    So, my view is that the “crease” issue should not deter you from getting the Sony XBR-HX929. If you don’t need a new set right away, by all means wait a couple of months and perhaps there will be a reliable stream of crease-free sets (though a recent comment from Sony UK has me somewhat doubtful). If you must buy now, I don’t think the crease should scare you away from this set. (Well… I’m a bit torn about this actually: Despite what Sony UK has recently said, the crease is probably a manufacturing defect, and a top-of-the-line item shouldn’t have manufacturing defects. So, I can sympathize with those who do not want to give Sony money for releasing a very expensive product with such a defect.)

    Like some others, I am planning to put a call it to Sony to report the crease. The more they hear about it, the more likely they are to do something. Also, if there is a recall, or an offer to replace sets with the crease, etc., I would certainly be interested in taking Sony up on that.

    Picture quality: I’m using David Katzmaier’s (from CNET) recommended settings. Viewed from straight on, front and center, at eye level, the picture is outstanding (4.5 or 5 out of 5 stars). The blacks are truly black–deep, inky, and virtually indistinguishable from the bezel, especially when you view from a high-quality source like a Blu-ray. It is the only TV of those I’ve owned with blacks as deep as the Panasonic plasma’s. These deep blacks make for excellent contrast, which (along with strong shadow detail and good gamma) gives the image natural depth and that “pop” that impresses viewers so much.

    Colors are both rich and realistic. Shadow detail is excellent. Blu-ray movies I’ve watched on this set so far include Toy Story 3, Baraka, Master and Commander, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Rango. All looked absolutely fantastic (though I give the overall nod to Toy Story 3). Best in-home theater experiences I’ve ever had. I am consistently “wow-ed” by the picture on this set.

    Comparison with the Samsung UN55D6900 LCD. The colors on the Samsung were excellent (once I got the user-adjustable settings right–which is relatively easy on the Samsung thanks to its RGB-only mode: one of the things I like better about Samsung than the Sony). Still, the Sony’s are at least as good (I didn’t do a side-by-side, simultaneous comparison, so it is difficult to say for sure which was better). However, there is one area in which the Sony clearly and, in my view, crucially bests the Samsung. The Samsung is an edge-lit LED-LCD (as are all of the upper end Samsung…

    Screen defects, November 10, 2011

    In sum, expect the beautiful display to be embarrassingly scarred after an inexcusably short amount of time, and then having to wait weeks for Sony to fix it. Picture looks great until screen fails – and it will. I haven’t had the TV longer than 90 days, and a blue vertical stripe has developed running the entire height of the screen. I did some online research and this is a common problem. For the price I paid, and it being the “flagship” of Sony’s TVs, this is not acceptable. Worse, the warranty repair won’t even be scheduled for at least a week, and then who knows how long it will take before they can actually arrive and fix it (and the Sony phone rep disclosed that it will be another week if they have to order parts). In the past, I had similar problems with a Sony XBR projection TV, when the optical blocks had issues and the screen had yellow blotches just within a year or two of use. I should have learned my lesson then. Sony’s poor track record of quality on their high-end TV’s will burn them in loss of customer loyalty. Avoid this TV – not worth the price, shoddy quality, and hassle. **UPDATE: SONY decided to send me a replacement TV rather than sending a repair person. Per their manufacture’s warranty agreement, SONY has the right to replace the TV with a referbished model, and that’s exactly what the did. There’s a sticker on the back declaring it refirbished along with several minor scratches on the back of the unit. Worse, the lower frame of the TV bulges down on the left side – looks like it wasn’t glued or set properly (flush) with the screen glass. The TV also leans to the left on the stand by about a half inch, and there is noting I can do to fix it. In sum, it took SONY weeks to replace the TV, and they did it with a scatch n’ dent model. This is nowhere near acceptable for a TV of this price, bought new, and less than 90 days old.

    Outstanding TV, June 20, 2011
    By 

    I waited 4 months for the TV just to make sure I wasnt going to miss something in my search for a new TV. I’m glad I waited. As a disclaimer I will say that the 3D aspect of the features were insignificant to me and my wife. I just wanted the best 2D picture I could find and right now I dont even own any 3d glasses, so it was a minor issue. I had looked at all the models and it was between the Samsung 8000 and LG W6500 and perhaps the Sony if it measured up (as it was late in releasing). Alot of things to like on all three models and I had looked at the LG and Samsung 20 times. Head on the Samsung has an outstanding picture. Even with slight angles the color saturation dropped as did the blacks etc. The LG kept them much better and with the Passive 3d and lower price I was pretty sure thats what I would be buying but opted to wait for Sony just so I wouldnt kick myself later.
    I would have. Seen side by side, all three of them, there was simply no comaprison and even my wife who is very uninterested commented on how much nicer the over all picture was (all sets in the store were set on vivid with no other adjustments). With even steep angle viewing the Sony lost far less than the Samsung and even the LG. The full array makes a huge difference and from 30 ft away the Sony leapt out in clarity, depth with virtually no judder (shudder, blurring) or whatever they call it. Picture is phenominal. It is as clean and pretty shut off as a TV can be. The Gorilla glass is ver nice, you can just use a nice clean rag and glass cleaner and it comes out beautiful Also while opening a cd case two fell out of my hand and hit the front. Probably wouldnt have hurt anything else but not a mark.
    CONS: Why I gave it 4 stars and not five. The directions stink and I just generally figured stuff out and the “internet” side of it is very slow (but thats why I have a Mac). The stand which is well designed and suitably robust still has a potential flaw and mine sags ever so slightly to the right but apparently Sony is sending someone out to see it which is impressive as I dont think they have alot out there. Lastly, it’s expensive and it was hard to justify almost a thousand more in comparison to the LG but to me the picture warranted the difference. To others possibly not. Overall I am glad I waited. Compare them if possible side by side, close your eyes and sign the check it’s probably worth it!
