46” (diag) LED HX820-Series Internet TV
This tv has an amazing picture. The image is so vivid. This is my third Sony tv in 26 years. The first one is still working as good as the first day I purchased it. I will always buy Sony.

Terrible internet connection. Menu's are ugly and unorgainized. Just take a look a Samsung Tv and you will realize the difference. No Qwery keyboard. There is not even an option to buy a qwery remote and pair it to the tv.The Sony Remote application on Smart phones, does not allow you to use it for typing!! Sony expects you to use the tv remote and scroll up and down to hit a single character on tv. I donot understand how Sony has the nerve to advertise this tv as a smart tv.
Picture has too much grain in it. Sound volume is too low. Sony is just waste of money. Take a look at the tv and your will find flashlight from the bottom corners and inconsistensy in the screen brightness "blooming"

The is beautiful designed television that has a great picture. I am very impressed with this television as I also have a Samsung D7000 plasma and I think that this TV produces a better picture but the plasma has better picture uniformity and 3D. If you tilt you head while watching 3D you will see ghosting on this TV. The picture is great but black level can range from dark grey to absolute black depending on what is being display on screen and the TV settings. Make sure you have the dynamic dimming LED on. Another odd issue that I have is that I have to hit the power button twice to turn on the television when I turn it on from the TV itself. Not sure why?
The TV supports wifi (B,G, and N) but only on 2.4 GHZ which is not to bad but it would be nice if they supported 5GHZ which can sometimes support greater throughput. This TV has many options for network streaming but like all Sony's you have register the TV with Sony before you use these services. This make no sense!
I would like to rate this TV 4.5 because it is great television with a few small flaws but has a fantastic picture that only fails when compared to the HX929 which supports full array LED which this TV does not have.
