Pros Beautiful PQ, Deep Blacks, Dynamic Edge LED, 3D Ready, Apps and widgets galore,Beautiful Design, Simply the best LED HDTV made by Sony yet.
Cons None. The reports on some websites that this tv suffers from clouding or light bleeding dont apply at least not to my tv!
Summary First for Cnet to be compareing this HDTV in their video to Panasonics Plasma's is just not fair because everyone knows that plasma tv's produce blacks that cant be beat...by ANY HDTV! But what the HX750 does do is give you excellent PQ and blacks that will satisfy any HT enthusiast. I am very nitpicky when it comes to PQ and blacks and I will say this HDTV out does my expectations. You want widgets and apps? It has it. You want excellent 3D? This tv delievers one of the best 3D experiences you could ever ask for. To sum it up this way: This is one of the best HDTV's yet made by Sony. And no matter what CNET may say it IS worth the money and then some. Buy it because you wont regret it...not by a long shot.Here's an update to my previous review of the HX750. Sold mine and bought an HX850 which as Cnet's review said is inferior to the HX850. Cnet was right and I was wrong.

Pros The ST50 is a PLASMA unit and usually are 30 percent cheaper and have better dark contrast. The ST50 is a hotter runner and 2 1/2 thicker.
I have an older SONYs (LED) & Panasonic's Plasma, both run well, I would not put the Plasma in the Sun room
Cons I would have liked to have learned how much of an improvement the 750 is over the older EX700 with regard to the picture and the 240HZ but no info there.
Summary Will probably by a 750 in the Fall.
Pros 1. Picture quality even for enthusiasts like myself is fantastic.
2. 4 HDMI, one SCART, one RGB and one PC input (VGA, all PCs can be connected by the HDMI inlets)
3. NO signal output
Cons 1. The multitude of possibilites to adjust, calibrate and tune
2. Electronic manual available only.
3. The so called "network ability" is a bad joke.
4. NO signal output
Summary The SONY is a fantastic TV if being used as computer monitor or as simple monitor for other devices. As "stand alone TV" it is a typical "SONY" in which all good ideas are destroyed or invalidated by "protection" mechanisms. I like my BRAVIA very much but only because it is my computer monitor and switching it on and off is everything I do with it.Sorry for having listed "NO signal output" under PRO. That was a silly mistake during writing. For me it is the "CON of the CONs".
Some of the disadvantages:
1. The hiogh number of possibilites to adjust, calibrate and tune TV image settings, sound and input signals requires some technical explanations. It is probably a good thing to be able to choose between "Color matrix ITU 709" and "Color Matrix ITU 601" setup for every single input channel and to activate "MPEG noise filter", "Pixel noise filter" and "Dynamic noise filter" (always seperately for every input) but it cannot be found anywhere in the manual what ITU 709 or "ITU 601" means or if "MPEG noise" also occurs in AVI videos (AVI is a codec container like MKV . MPEG videos in AVI files still are played as MPEG). Other questions waiting for an answered by SONY: Does "MPEG noise" occur in MPEG2, MPEG4 and m2ts files and also in *.ts mpeg transport streams? What is the effect on picture quality by filtering it through the MPEG noie filter included in the settings? How about the "Pixel Noise Filter"? Answers after long searches maybe can be found in Internet forums (not in SONY forums by the way) Explaining uncommon technical terms however is one of the important functions of a manual, in partiucular when thosse terms are used in a device`s setup
2. Only an electronic manual in the TV itself is available. When my new device (after 30 minutes) stopped working, I would have liked to know how to find a solution for my problem. Perhaps SONY is not aware that "complete darkness" also includes darkness of the electronic manual. The good thing about "printed manuals" is that they run without electricity and the likelikhood of looking into such a manual increases in the event of system failure. I did not like having none
3. The device can be connected to the internet to be able to look silly video clips on preselected teeny internet sites like "Facebook". Thats it. There is no possibility to access the SONY by a computer connected to the same network. That means: The TV can play files from the computers, but the computer cannot play a signal received by the TV. Nor can a TV signal be displayed or recorded by an attached DVD or VHS recorder or any other device. The TV simply has no output. SONY justifies that flaw on its homepage with the intention of "preventing video piracy". That is an insult by SONY to its own customers, who seem to consist of criminals and thugs only. It is also beginning to annoy me. Where I live, all TV stations on the same day switched from "analog" to "DVB-T" digital terrestic TV signal. Instead of immediately discarding 10 not so old analog TV and video devices not having a DVB-T tuner I thought it to be a good idea to have one only in the first step and to stream the tuner signal, received by a "network capable TV device" to my home network computers which are attached to my older TV sets. Result: total failure. That the "networking capability" of my new SONY TV is a "one way capability" had escaped my attention. (I have DVB-T adapters on my computers now). Nevertheless I feel personally insulted by the claim to be a potential illegal content downloader and that SONY has to prevent that activity by disabling certain features in my own TV set. If so, they clearly must announce it. The "network" function of the BRAVIA is a bogus. THAT has upset me to the point that the BRAVIUSA definitely was my last SONY device I have purchased.

Pros Colors, Internet, 3D, Size, Price, Customer Service, Apps
Cons I haven't find any so far!
Summary I was looking like crazy for a good deal on these black Friday and there were a few on different sites so I went for this TV.
I have to say I do respect Ty Pendlebury's opinion However as an owner of one of these TV's I really cannot see nothing wrong with it, I love the colors and can't tell about the low on the black levels he talked about, and the price well I just paid 999.98 with free 2 day shipping so I really think it worth it!
