50" (diag) R450 Series LED HDTV
This TV is a great panel, but people need to understand the source that is coming in makes the picture.
Example 1: My son hooked up his xbox via hdmi and it looked flawless and ran smooth as butter.
Example 2: My digital cable via Coax, some channels are 1080i and some are 720p, if i watch Football on one channel it digitizes during fast motion, however if i turn to a different channel, say ESP and watch Football, the motion is perfect and crisp.
Example 3: Blue ray, and HD netflix, amazon streaming is flawless via HDMI, action movies or sporting events (UFC) look amazing and fluid.
All in all my viewing experience has been excellent.
This panel is perfect for gaming, sports and movies.
Hook up a Roku, or smart device and your all set.
Just remember the source coming in dictates your experience.

I should have bought the Vizeo for $100 less...
I was very excited when I ordered my TV, it was to be an upgrade from a 2007 Mitsubishi 46" LCD 120hz TV. Today my new Sony arrived, I unboxed it, it was remarkably light and easy to move around compared to my old TV. I hooked it up and instantly noticed that the picture isn't as crisp as my Mitsubishi, the default color settings appear overly bright and cartoonish (that was easily cleared up with a few adjustments). The first thing I turned on is game 1 of the NLDS baseball playoffs between the Reds and Pirates, I was very disappointed with Sony's XR120, it actually looks like they just printed a fancy name on the TV box and did nothing to the TV itself. The motion blur on this TV is more than abundant! I thought maybe a Bluray disc will be more telling, it is... the motion blur and shudder are horrible, and the picture is grainy, my brother has an RCA 120hz TV and his TV looks much better than this one, I should have bought the 50 inch Vizeo Smart TV with the same specs for $100 less... I expected more from Sony, even if it isn't their flagship line...

for the price i paid for this television i cannot believe the quality, the picture is awesome, i cannot believe how light this tv is, i live in canada and bought this in the USA because sony canada wanted two times the price, the custome agent could not believe what i paid for it, my two biggest complaints are the lack of hdmi and the size of the remote control, way too small, plus the channel and volume button are in a horrible position on the remote awesome tv.4 out of 5

Very happy so far with this purchase. The only issue is a very loud clicking sound when changing out of high definition. Hope this isn't a "problem" with this TV.
