Pros & Cons
Sony R550A Series Internet HDTV is an elegantly slim LED TV that boasts Full HD 1080p for incredible detail and Edge LED backlighting for boosted contrast. With built-in Wi-Fi, internet connectivity is at your fingertips, so you can watch YouTube™ clips and access online HD movies, music and more. Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a radically brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. Even quick moving action sequences appear amazingly realistic as Motionflow™ XR 240 technology takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, smoothing out the picture where the camera can't for clearer, more natural movement. Using the same passive 3D technology used in movie theaters, feel the explosive excitement of theater-like 3D. Even the sound profile is enhanced for 3D viewing to provide a more immersive experience. Slip on the latest generation of light, comfortable 3D glasses to enjoy your favorite 3D movies.
Some reviewers complain about the lack of picture calibration option and sluggish navigation of apps. A few users mention that 70-inch TV tilts back quite a bit when it is installed on stand.
Overall, Sony R550A Series Internet HDTV delivers a gorgeous picture in 3D or 2D. It is great mid-range TV at a very competitive price.
