This review summary is for Sony BRAVIA-XBR55HX929 55-Inch 1080p 3D LED HDTV

The looks of Sony Bravia XBR-55HX929 are great with gorilla screen and a sleek frame. The style of this set looks great on the wall. The picture quality is sharp and bright. The colors are superb with deep solid blacks. This series uses a fully background lit system instead of just an edge lit system. The user interface is pretty good too. Sony Bravia XBR929 handles quick motion extremely well on all action movies, sports and fast moving games. It has a built in camera that can monitor usage and shut off the TV when it is idle.

There is some visible blooming when you have a white object on a black background and not very good side viewing. The screen is very reflective, in a bright scene this is not an issue, but in a dark scene you can see your reflection.

Overall, the Sony Bravia XBR-55HX929 is one of the best LED-LCD TV, with its screen size, local dimming, built-in Wi-Fi, and 3D capabilities in addition to its numerous streaming services.
