    Brilliant picture and 3D, May 1, 2013
    Faisal Yaqoob

    I generally like Plasmas for their better picture quality (I already own 5 HD TVs and this is the 6th one). The only reason I decided to go with LED TV was there’s no 70″ Plasma in the Market. And my 60″ looks too small in my great room – possibly because of high ceilings. After researching Sharp’s 70″ TV I decided to wait for Panasonic to come up with a 70″ Plasma, but then Sony came out with this. It was decently priced, had 3D, there were no reviews. But I decided to take a chance – given Sony’s reputation. I must say I am not disappointed!

    The GOOD:

    Overall Picture Quality:
    Overall picture quality is good. I would say it is awesome given that it is not a Plasma yet Sony was able to produce brilliant blacks.

    720p Quality:
    Picture was not pixelated with 720p output from my Verizon box. I was able to see bigger picture without any quality degradation due to bigger size. It was really surprising. The picture was at least as good as on my 60″ Plasma on 720p.

    1080p Quality:
    I put in Avatar bluray movie and played it. I turned off all the lights to see how darks appear. Even with factory settings the result was amazing. After looking at the picture quality of this TV I can no longer argue with my friends that Plasma is superior than LED.

    This TV uses passive 3D!!! And this was a pleasant surprise. I like passive 3D better than active 3D for two reasons.
    1. In passive 3D TV produces two images at a time, while each lens in your polarized 3D glasses can see only one image which feeds different images to both eyes – resulting in 3D image in your brain. I like it because instead of glasses completely blinding your each eye one after the other some 240 times a second (active 3D), your both eyes just see different images – which I have found to put less stress on your eyes and brain.

    2. Passive 3D glasses are cheap – these are the same one used in theaters. You can order around a dozen for less than 25 bucks. And they don’t need to be recharged and they are light in weight. Compare that to an active 3D glass where each cost a minimum of 50 bucks and you have to recharge them and they are not as lightweight as passive.

    3D Quality:
    Again, I restarted Avatar in 3D mode and the result was just WOW!!! My three year old daughter when walked across the TV I almost screamed that she is going to bump in the guy – but wait – the guy was in the movie. I am not kidding it happened a few times – that is when I noticed that 3D is just amazing – and it does have a pop-out effect usually experienced only in theaters. May be the screen size helped in producing life sized images.

    Now the BAD:

    Menu’s are not intuitive and has a slow response time. But I wouldn’t have given it 4 stars just for this reason. The reason I gave it four stars is that when changing resolution (i.e. when PlayStation goes from playing bluray video to home screen and back) the screen goes blank and TV stops responding to commands. I could still hear the sound but no picture. I have to turn it off and back on and I start to see the picture. This is most likely a manufacturing defect. I still have to contact Sony about it (as I just got TV last night). Will update the review when I have this resolved.


    I had my PlayStation connected with an old HDMI cable which worked fine with my old TV. When I connected PlayStation to the new TV with the same cable I was able to see the menus and stuff. However when I try to play a 3D movie the picture would go blank and I would hear sound after long pauses. I remembered reading somewhere that 3D requires newer faster HDMI cables. I had some newer HDMI cables in my stash. So when I changed it everything started working. So if you are unable to play 3D movies try a newer (I think ver 1.4 is required but I am not sure – just google it) HDMI cable.

    EDIT 5/7/2013:

    My issue above was resolved by a call to tech support. I had to unplug both TV and Playstation while they were “on”. Then disconnect the HDMI cable, wait for one minute and then plug TV and Playstation back in. Connect the HDMI cable. This resolved the issue above – so I updated my rating to 5 star!

    Sony – the one and only – It’s a great TV, with some caveats, June 15, 2013
    Jonathan C. Cauthorn (Madison, wi) –

    See the pics I posted!
    It’s a great TV, for a good price. I like the remote, but it could have been better.

    What I like:

    1. It’s a Sony.
    There’s something special about using Sony equipment, especially when you use a lot of their stuff, they work well together.

    2. Bravia Sync:
    This Bravia sync is cool, and it was unexpected – I can actually control my PS3 with the TV remote – yeah, that rocks. So I can put a blu-ray disk in the PS3, and use the TV remote to pause, play, select options and all that. I’ve got some other Sony stuff I have to hook up now to see how that single remote works with it. That’s just cool.

    3. Great Picture:
    It looks great. Ok, so I’m coming from a Sony 32″ picture tube that isn’t properly aligned anymore, but I’ve taken my time looking at TVs in the stores.

    4. The Netflix button:
    There’s a NetFlix button on the remote. I know, that’s not really a big deal, and I know my way around a remote, but it’s a cool feature. It’s nice that Netflix looks so good on the screen too. Considering my internet speed is just high enough to work most of the time without pauses on NetFlix, the picture is fantastic.

    5. Great 3D:
    The 3D is very good. I have only tried The Hobbit 3D so far, but my goodness it’s smooth and lifelike. I’m looking forward to playing with the controls on 3D tweaks. I’ve been saving my 3D glasses from theaters for over a year now so I have plenty of glasses for a house full of guests. The Real-3D glasses work great. So do the included Sony 3D glasses.

    6. Keyboard and Mouse support via USB:
    You can plug in a USB Keyboard and mouse, or a wireless keyboard and mouse, and that does work.

    7. The TV is software up-gradable:
    Granted, I found this out when I first went to set it up and found that there was a newer version already so I updated it. It’s nice to know that they have the ability to add or fix features (and most likely give the NSA more information about your viewing habits).

    8. I particularly like the feel of the remote:
    The back of the remote is not slippery or sticky – it’s a perfect balance in between. It has horizontal and vertical lines running the length and width of the remote. These seem to help you grip it better without being sticky.

    What I don’t like or found irritating:

    1. Noticeable lines in 3D when you are too close:
    When I first put on the 3D glasses I was (apparently) too close to the TV and noticed the lines. Ug. That was irritating. When I went back to the couch, the lines disappeared or blended together and I didn’t notice it again. I have a Sony PS3 monitor with the Active Glasses so I know what full 1080p 3D looks like. As far as I can tell so far, when I’m sitting across the (not terribly large) room, there doesn’t seem to be much difference.

    2. The Remote control is IR only:
    The Remote Control is IR only. Really. I thought it would make much more sense to go to bluetooth or wifi or something. I’m used to the bluetooth remote on the PS3 and it doesn’t matter where you point it. Well, unless you point the IR in the general direction of the fire alarm which uses IR to put it in “test” mode which scares the cat and dogs and causes my son to get upset that I set it off —again—.

    3. The Remote control has no keyboard:
    When I was looking at TVs I was particularly enamored with the Vizio remote – it’s bluetooth and it has a FULL KEYBOARD on it! So, here I get this Sony TV which has no keyboard or even a simplified way to enter letters. Even the LG (or Toshiba? one of them) has a “magic remote” that works like a pointer device (like a mouse). So I was really disappointed that Sony didn’t have something more advanced for this.

    4. No Skype:
    No Skype on this model. Granted, it’s one less way for the NSA to monitor me, but the option would be nice Maybe with a software upgrade Sony? Or Other IM/video chat app like Google? Please?

    5. Keyboard and Mouse only work in Browser:
    When you plug in the wireless keyboard/mouse, they only work on the Opera Browser. Really Sony? Why? Why can’t I use it for searching in other apps like Hulu & Netflix? Please unlock the keyboard and mouse and set them free!

    About my experience so far:

    I’ve had this KDL-60R550A for a week and only had it setup for a couple days. I got it from buy dig which had the best price at the time and now Amazon appears to be matching it but always shop around first so you know.

    I’ll try to add stuff as I discover it.

    (Shameless plug) Did that help you?

    5.0 out of 5 stars
    Minor flashlighting, slow to connect wifi – otherwise, great!, July 8, 2013
    dmron (PDX) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I got the 70″ version of this TV a few weeks back for my new home theater setup. Despite a couple major flaws, overall I am quite happy. Blu-ray movies are stunning. Sitting about 10 feet from the screen, I almost feel like I’m in a theater. Netflix and Amazon video are pretty good too, although since they’re not as high bitrate as a blu-ray, you can definitely see some compression artifacts.

    This is the first TV I’ve ordered from Amazon and I was a little scared honestly, but having people bring the TV into your house and set it up for you is quite handy to say the least. They don’t plug in all your devices, but they put it on the stand, make sure it works, and will help you place it on your media center table.


    – Excellent image quality.

    – Screen lag is minimal, in regards to video games. I haven’t had to use “game mode”, the default seems fine.

    – Menus are nice and speedy. Some people have said they’re are laggy but I don’t find that to be the case at all. Of the 3 smart TV’s I’ve owned (the others being LG and Vizio), this one is by far the best when it comes to nagigating menus.

    – Fairly good/simple remote. I much prefer the LG Magic Remote but since most remotes are horrible these days, this one is good relative to the average remote.

    – Lots of built in video apps – I only need Netflix, Amazon, and Youtube, but there’s plenty more to be had.

    – Tons of inputs – I don’t need them for my setup as my receiver does HDMI switching for me, but it’s still nice to have so many built in.

    – Passive 3D is a big pro in my opinion. Lighter glasses, less headaches, and no worrying about batteries, what’s not to like?

    – Relatively thin bezel for the screen size, which makes the TV look attractive (except the chrome stand…sigh)

    – The viewing angle seems good to me. I see *some* dimming when going more than about 30 degrees, but not as bad as some people seem to be saying. For my setup, this point is moot, as the room is fairly narrow. And who wants to watch a TV at more than 30 degrees off center anyways?


    – It takes a few minutes for it to connect to the internet when you first turn it on. This is *super* annoying and a few times I have just went ahead and turned on my PS3 and started up Netflix that way. The point of having “apps” on your TV is so you don’t have to use other devices for some functionality, so this is just dumb.

    – My screen has the flashlight effect in 3 of the corners. Not nearly as bad as a lot of the pictures I’ve seen around the web, but still noticeable sometimes. I don’t notice it at all when playing video games. I rarely notice when watching movies. Only when the screen is almost entirely black, which isn’t that often. I mainly only see it when switching inputs on my receiver. It does annoy me, but if you want a TV this big, it’s pretty much impossible to get no flashlighting so you have to be willing to live with some degree of it.

    – Weak wifi signal – My PS3 had no problems streaming Netflix in HD, but my TV could barely even connect to the router when I first got it (in the same room as the PS3). I had to get a wifi extender for it to get a good signal. And that’s fine anyways, as I like having a stronger signal everywhere throughout the house. So if you’re going to use wifi with this thing, make sure your router is not more than one or two rooms away, unless you have an extender.

    – The energy saver stuff is ridiculously bad, but at least you can turn it off. Do so immediately or the screen will shut off entirely any time the screen turns 100% black and it won’t come back on unless you power cycle the TV. I can’t believe this passed QA!

    – The screen is fairly reflective. Mine is in a dark room so it doesn’t affect me, but if you have windows behind your couches/chairs, you will definitely see reflections.

    – I mentioned the menus are speedy before, but the *settings* menus are a bit confusing and poorly organized.

    I have to drop half a star for both flashlighting and the time spent waiting for wifi after turning it on. Those are the only two major flaws for me. This TV is quite new so I’m sure a firmware update will fix the wifi issue in the future, at which point I would revise my rating to 4.5 stars. But since I can’t give half a star, it will remain a 4-star rating even if that gets fixed.

    ** UPDATE, 2013-10-22 **
    So it’s been a few months. Amazingly, the flashlighting just went away on its own after a month or so. One corner still has it *barely* and I only see it when the screen is 100% black, but it’s completely gone from the rest of the screen. I didn’t know such a thing could occur.

    Also, a firmware update must have fixed the wifi issue as it now connects much faster. Still not quite as fast as I’d like, but generally within 20 seconds…
