65” Class (64.5” diag.) Sony LED HX950 Internet TV
Some of the reviews complain about flaws that require several exchanges made me apprehensive about buying this TV, but I'm so glad I got it. The full glass is elegant and the chrome stand is attractive too, although the ring shape does not really match the screen. But the picture blows me away! Screen uniformity is excellent and the black level is nearly indinguishable from the frame. I am so relieved that there are no dead pixels or permanent lines like some reviewers complained about. I have not used any of the advanced functions since I use it with a cable box. I am super happy with this TV.

Great picture, terrible software
This is the best picture. Very, very happy with the TV. I bought Sony home theater (BDV-N790W), very easy integration. Just plugged the HDTM cable and it work perfectly, it seems the TV controls the home theater. Then programmed my Fios remote to work with the TV, and suddenly i'm working with single remote all three devices. Very happy.
However, the device has downsides. No support for USB keyboard ... none at all. The support told me to use Sony remote for tablet or phone. works very good, but not substitute for real keyboard. The mouse cursor is lagging a lot, almost useless.
No support for USB camera either, need to buy Sony camera for that.
Also, I hit a page size limit on the browser trying to see my picture on picasa. Just said: "Page to big. Go back and try another page"....
Also, on the positive site, great integration with Windows Media Player. I set up a server, and it works flawlessly.

Extremely happy with purchase
The picture tube in our 20+ year old 38” RCA Home Theater television burned out recently. After considerable amount of research on LCD, LED and plasma screens, I selected the Sony XBR-65HX950. The new 65” size for the Bravia was one of the main reasons. The video and audio qualities are superb. The colors are so clean and the clarity of scenes and faces make every program and movie so much more interesting to watch. The holiday musical programs were especially vibrant. I liked that the screen was already mounted to the table-top stand and how sturdy it is. The initial setup was easy to execute and the HD installation by the cable provider took less than 30 minutes. The price for the television was a consideration being it was double other choices that I had in mind. I am happy that I invested in a premium television with many high-tech features. A Sony Blu-ray 3D player just arrived and the grandkids will certainly enjoy their visits.

Very good picture, Slow Input
Bought this TV over thanksgiving, love picture quality, updated firmware which improved some color combinations. Overall best TV picture.
Input response is slow, pressing input on remote, it takes few sec TV to give input window.
On my older xbr, Input was immediate.
