Sony Bravia KDL-55EX720
3 Star Review  cnet.com - Mar 18, 2011

THE GOOD: The <b>Sony KDL-EX720</b> has accurate color in bright areas; handles 1080p/24 content properly; and is extremely energy-efficient. Its automatic turn-off feature saves power and its matte screen reduces glare in brighter rooms. It has solid Internet services, including numerous niche videos and exclusive Qriocity and Gracenote. Lastly, the TV boasts classy, understated styling. THE BAD: It reproduces lighter black levels, and its darker areas are tinged blue. The Sony KDL-EX720 cannot customize dejudder processing and has less-even screen uniformity. THE BOTTOM LINE: The picture quality of Sonys KDL-EX720 shows some flaws but its efficiency, design, and well-stocked feature list will win plenty of converts.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-55EX720
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Apr 17, 2011

The Sony BRAVIA KDL-55EX720 is a mid-range 1080p high definition television. This is similar to the Sony BRAVIA KDL-46EX720, but built with a larger 55 inch LCD display. This is followed in the series by the Sony BRAVIA KDL-60EX720 which has the same features and a larger display. Edge LED backlighting is used to create a bright picture, and MotionFlow XR 240 technology is used to keep fast-moving graphics sharp and clear. The native resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels, and smaller video sources are scaled up automatically by the X-Reality Engine. Online services include internet video and various apps, as well as the ability to do video conferencing with Skype. Wi-Fi is also possible with an additional adapter. Features 55 in diagonal LCD display Edge LED backlight 1920 x 1080 native resolution 16:9 Aspect Ratio X-Reality Engine MotionFlow XR 240 Wi-Fi ready (USB wireless LAN adapter sold separately) Skype ready in 720p high ... PROS: (1) affordable price point for a 240Hz 3D TV from a top brand (2) full 1080p (3) 3D capable (4) matte display finish (5) well designed remote - includes dedicated buttons for online content ... CONS: (1) 3D crosstalks are very bad, especially near the top of the screen (2) cheap looking glossy black plastic bezel and stand - picks up and shows off fingerprints, dust, scratches (3) XMB interface includes 9 top level menus - annoying to browse through, potentially confusing for less savvy users (4) browsing experience is slow / frustrating and buggy (5) poor blacks

White Clouding on screen KDL55EX720
2 Star Review   By Riskyrich on Sony - Official Store - Sep 6, 2012   

1. Noticed that the screen had uneven blacks areas, white patches in different areas of the screen. The TV was a month out of warranty, but the service centre honoured the warranty and got the panel replaced (took more than a month for the parts to be delivered). Still noticed the white clouding/ patches on the screen. even after a new panel was installed. Have to take the TV back to the service centre for a Sony tech to assess. 2. Digital TV is distorted if a device connected via HDMI is switched left turned on.

4 Star Review   By Curtism on Sony - Official Store - Mar 27, 2012   

I do like the TV, the picture is great... But the PIP and Twin picture features aren't available with two HD inputs... Which is the only inputs we have... Making PIP unusable. I've also noticed blur with most 3d movies. Either in foreground or background (It seems to be a problem having both clear) although I'm not sure if this is an issue specific to this product.

Very happy with my purchase
5 Star Review   By Benster on Sony - Official Store - Feb 24, 2012   

I just got my 55 inch for about 1 weeek now. I love the look and image is amazing. I got it on sale at the Jersey Shore Sony outlet. Internet features is amazing. Got the android app to use phone as remote control. Useful for typing since you have keyboard. Couldn't open pdf file though on usb drive. Browser app could be faster. Couldn't open CNN video. Looks like it need flash support. 3D shows ghosting affect sometimes.

5 Star Review   By VMaxxer on Sony - Official Store - Feb 13, 2012   

The Sony was an upgrade from a 61" Toshiba HD Rear projection (great picture but lacking 1080P capability). It was very aggressively priced and the picture quality was far higher than the competitive models reviewed at Best Buy. I have not yet tried the 3D functionality but thought I'd purchase it for future use. The sound quality of the TV is OK but not really a priority as it's being used with a surround sound system. I'm very pleased with the purchase overall.

This is our second Bravia, very pleased with it and the improvements to ease of use, ie, being able to select input without have to scroll through them all to get to the one you want. Great TV and just we expect from Sony. We have owned 4 Sony TV's as well as plenty of other Sony electronics. We expect the best and are not disappointed with this set.

Very disappointed with the viewing angle /colors
2 Star Review   By Taher on Sony - Official Store - Dec 6, 2011   

I have always been a Sony TV fan but this time I have to admit great disappointment in the viewing angle of the TV, the TV is loaded with features but they should have added a second component video and a second composite video input to accommodate older equipment. I got this TV to replace my HD grand Wega TV. To my dismay the older TV picture had more depth and sharpness and most important a wider viewing angle The new TV is at best with the automatic picture enhancements turned off and viewing at a 90 degree angle view from a wider angle or the side in 2D and the skin colors are all washed out and unnatural A call to customer support did not help much, so looks like Sony have to do some work on the viewing angle to get back to Sony known quality

TV WATCHING TO NEW LEVEL
5 Star Review   By dwunderlich on Sony - Official Store - Nov 23, 2011   

Overall I am very happy with this product. I have had the TV for a little over 2 weeks now and I love it. It takes a little research and work to get the calibration tweeks (check out www.tweaktv.com/...) but once you get that done and your input wiring upgrades done all thats left is to sit back and relax. The only thing I don't like about the TV is most of the HDMI ports on the back are outward facing, so you can't put the TV flat on the wall. It needs to be at least 1.5" off the wall or the input plugs will hit and cause it to hang crooked. All in all though.......a very good product.

Nice Set for the price
4 Star Review   By 1Sonyfan on Sony - Official Store - Nov 22, 2011   

the most depressing thing is the only audio out available is digital. so if you have a receiver thats a few years old (as i do) you have to buy a 55.00 cable! :( sony of all brands should have taken that into consideration.

Sony for life
5 Star Review   By SonyForMe on Sony - Official Store - Nov 8, 2011   

I bought this LED 3D HDTV to replace my old Sony 52 inch XBR4. Syncing to my other Sony products was easy to do through HDMI inputs like my stereo receiver and Blu-Ray player. Connecting to the internet was also simple and easy to do. I love Sony products and will use it for life.

Bad Purchase
2 Star Review   By TonswhigWA on Sony - Official Store - Jul 31, 2011   

Careful buying this one. Make sure you test the 3D feature before purchasing this model. A lot of ghosting. My son can't even play his 3D games on his playstation 3.

Sony Bravia TV worst purchase ever
2 Star Review   By lemon on Sony - Official Store - Apr 22, 2011   

I really liked the TV with all its features but iI had issues from the minute I took it out of the box. Then it stopped working completely after two months. The TV just shut off and i could not turn it back on. Waiting on support to fix it been 3 weeks and told another 60days for the part.

Not bright at all
3 Star Review   By lanka123 on Sony - Official Store - Apr 11, 2011   

I bought this online at sale for a good price, however I wish I saw the TV before I bought it because the brightness is very bad. Check it out at best buy its really bad and when I finally got it I regret the purchase. I thought Sony was suppose to be good quality, also they seemed to have lied on the 240 refresh rate. I bought the TV because it was listed at 240 ,later to find out it wasn't 240 at all.

Best Picture I have ever seen!
5 Star Review   By Geminics1 on Sony - Official Store - Apr 5, 2011   

This is the best TV I have ever owned. When hooked up to a Sony 5.1 Surround Receiver, it will blow your mind. The 55" screen makes you feel like you are there. I will never own any other brand of TV. I have always owned Sony products. This is the BEST! Thanks Sony. You've made me a very happy person. Keep it up!

5 Star Review   By deputycollett on Sony - Official Store - Apr 4, 2011   

I love this tv it is the clearest picture that i have ever seen and the feature to this tv is amazing but the only thing that i am not as satisfied in is the 3d feature the advertisements had me think that a 3d image would litterly jump out of the tv not that it would create an 3d depth from what I understood was that in movies that if there was objects thrown at the screen that they would litterly fly past your head but besides that 3d is still amazing great job sony
