First Look: Sony KDL-55HX850 is a classy performer

2:03 /

The Sony KDL-55HX850 is an excellent LCD television which features classic, understated design and deep black levels.

Hi. I'm (Todd Hybrini?) CNET.com and this is a review of the Sony HX850. If it wasn't for TV (lock?) the Sony HX850, I would say the 2012 is shaping up in a pretty (guide?) year for quality televisions while we stand out like the amazing Panasonic SD 50 the quality level has been really low this year. With Sony's own HX750 another missed opportunity. But the company has redeemed itself with HX850, here's a TV that manages to do LCD really well and for a lot less in it's competitors. The hi-tech 850 is an (HLED?) TV with local (dimming?) which is almost as good as the HX929. One of the favorite TVs from last year. Styling is identifiably Sony though it dispenses with the eye catching lay back stand and it said goes through the strange up side down egg cap. There's also looks like one of a trash bins. The TV is again coated with Gorilla Glass which will interest people out there who still play the ways somehow. Web services off really standed in the X&B to place as the same as the last three years. The only change is that Sony had introduce it own web store called the Sony Entertainment Network which collects apps and media downloads together. (But the cool?) on this TV is why buy it and HX850 is very impressive. (Black levels?) are deep and (shutter?) detail is very softly rendered. Colors are little blue as it's the Sony signature but the picture is bright and involving. Three day replay isn't to the level of the OG passive TV a pretty good for an LCD, a 2500 for the 55 inch the Sony doesn't come cheap but if you want better quality out of an LCD you're going to have to pay it at least a thousand of dollars more. With this TV and the HX929 which stays in the 2012 line up Sony has shown that it's still a major play in television. This is (Todd Hybrini?) for CNET.com.
