Pros Matte screen? passive 3D
Cons None, as of yet!
Summary Cnet specs say this is a matte screen TV?! My hubby wants me to buy it for Christmas...KDL 50R550A...it is going on the northern wall of our sunroom...no direct light will hit it, but very sunny in the summer. Is it matte, glossy, semi-glossy? Your input is sincerely appreciated!
Pros GREAT PRICE, GREAT PERFORMANCE AND 3D, FANTASTIC APPS, NICE FEEL TO PRODUCT - FREE 12 MONTHS OF HULU AND NETFLIX
Cons HULU IS SLOW - HULUS FAULT ACCORDING TO HULU. NETFLIX AND ALL OTHER STREAMING IS FINE
Summary I BOUGHT A VIZIO(RETURNED IT), AND HAVE OWNED A SAMSUNG TV. THIS TV TAKES THE CAKE. COMPARING TO MY RELATIVES 50 INCH $1300 USD SAMSUNG OF THE SAME CLASS, THIS TV BEATS IT. THE INTERFACE ON THE SONY IS GREAT. THE SAMSUNG ONLY WINS OUT ON HAVING A SLIGHTLY BETTER APP INTERFACE. EVERYTHING ELSE IS NICE ON THE SONY. NO SCREEN LIGHT BLEEDING LIKE ON THE VIZIO I HAD TO RETURN. IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT THIS ISSUE WITH LED, THEN BUY THIS SONY. I WAS GOING TO GO FOR PLASMA TO AVOID THE LED ISSUES, BUT WAS ALSO NERVOUS ABOUT PLASMA. THIS TV WAS JUST GREAT AND I WAS ASTOUNDED THAT ALL THE OTHER BRANDS HAD FLASHLIGHTING (LIGHT BLEEDING ACROSS THE SCREEN ON BLACK SCREENS)
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, AVOID THE CRITIC REVIEWS ON SONY. THEY TEND TO CRY FOUL FOR SOME REASON. HAVING SOLD SAMSUNG TV'S FOR YEARS, I WOULD PICK SONY ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.
Pros Sony's smart TV is great and has plenty of apps to go around. Color accuracy is great and has plenty of connectivity even with the smartphones.
Cons The passive 3D isn't good as active in my opinion and is one of the biggest downfalls.
Summary Overall it's a great TV for the man cave if you don't want to drop 2 grand on good plasma.
Sound (for a flat screen)
Cons None that I can find.
Summary Best TV I have ever owned. I bought a Vizio M series and had to bring it back due to light bleed and nonsense widget apps. Bought this and got a free 12 month hulu and netflix subscription with it. FREE!
The TV has been seemless, great picture, nice looking frame, great apps including pandora and lots of others. Even some basic games in there. For $899 Run with it.
"worst tv ever"on by happydude2
Pros it looks nice hanging on the wall
Cons bad product and even worse customer support
Summary This product does not work right.
It turns off randomly, without warning.
If we want to make sure it works for a big game we have to unplug it the night before and replug it in before the game.
