Sony KDL-NX720 review: Edge-lit LED gets darker

Albeit expensive and plagued by issues in 3D, the beautifully styled Sony KDL-NX720 outpaces the picture quality of most other edge-lit LED-based LCD TVs.

There's a lot to like about the KDL-NX720 series. Sony's least expensive TV with that lovely Monolithic styling, it still costs a mint but will reward investors with some of the best 2D images we've seen on any LCD with an edge-lit LED backlight . And despite lacking an app store and Vudu, Sony's Internet selection is chock-a-block with video from sources both mainstream and otherwise. As long as you don't care about its picture quality in 3D, the Sony KDL-NX720 series competes well against the best edge-lit LED TVs on the market.
