A good photograph of the side connector panel would also be helpful.

Maybe one of you guys who is waiting for their new set to arrive could take the time to photograph the REAR and SIDES before you hang it on your wall.

Thanks!

While I don't have an exact model representation, most televisions will have air vents on the same place. Particular to each model/brand.

Here is an example of how it would look like on the NX810:



Panel controls are on the right side. Input is on the left side.

3k for the 60" NX810 would be a shocker, must be the 801.

I got my NX810 last weekend for $2500, including tax, with a BSPS570, and 3D emitter kit with Alice in Wonderland / 2 - 3D glasses.

That was a 46 inch model...

Costco's inventory varies from store to store.

In LA area, I saw the 60" NX801 for $2999, while in Orange County, they had the 55" NX710 for $1699.

Sorry to mislead everyone. I bought a 60NX801 about 2 1/2 months ago for 3K. I have about 2 weeks to take advantage of Costco's 90 day return policy and get the 60NX810 if they put it on their floor. I have no idea what the new 60NX810 will cost but I'm willing to upgrade to it.

This was from another thread that was originally posted by xxrando. I found it very helpful in helping me decide on which Sony TV to buy.

HX909 = NX810 - Dynamic edgelit + Dynamic backlit - intelligent presence sensor - widgets - wifi
HX800 = NX810 - Monolithic design - opticontrast - widgets - intelligent presence sensor - wifi + deep black panel

Better to worst depends on which features are important to you. From a PQ standpoint, the consensus is probably as below though disagreements do exist.

HX909 > NX810 > HX800 > LX900 > NX800

I have my 60" NX810 now. The industrial design is not the same as the HX909 and LX900. No glass screen and no metal trim around the edge. Definitely a plastic front screen which is a disappointment but not a show stopper. The picture so far is great but the contrast does drop some off axis. On axis it's amazing.

Also, as I expected the built in speakers are all but useless.

Is it still monolith design though? Just with plastic instead of glass?
And that may or may not be a good thing - how much does this TV weigh? As far as I recall - HX909 and LX900 are both pretty heavy due to glass....

It weights 86 pounds. It's lighter than my 52" Bravia XBR3.

It's a little lighter then the others. It's still a monolith, but plastic is pretty easy to scratch. A wife who dusts a lot with a dust rag and who dusts the plastic front will create a haze over time. I should have waited to see one in person. I called Sony Style and they told me it had a glass front. If I knew it had plastic I would have gone with the LX900..joe

Folks

I have a new KDL60NX810 and sure it is glass not plastic covering the front of the panel

It may feel like plastic on the edge since it is so smooth- but if you tap it with a metal object it has that ping you only get from glass

It also attracts fingerprints like only glass can!

I wonder is this was what they were advertising as an NX810 but posted reviews from months before the NX810 were even announced.

I wondered what they would be actually shipping to buyers- I guess now we know

It would make it soooooooo much easier to clean the screen! Windex huh?

Actually, it's not a glass or plastic (although I myself would call it a plastic). It's a composite.


And yes it attracts fingerprints like no ones business (why the heck you touching it? Except of course when you're messing with 3D, reach your hand out and don't realize how close the TV is...) and I would definitely not use Windex on it. Tried that, bad experience. Dry cloths only.

If a 60 inch TV weighs only 86 pounds - it doesn't seem like it's glass - with glass it should be heavier. I thought the whole purpose of glass was to make the picture pop more - so does NX810 have more pop than LX900, for instance?
And also, what is composite??

A composite is a mixture of a bunch of stuff to make something else. :P

Plywood is considered a composite, for example. The "glass" screen on my iPhone 4 is also a composite.

If it was just glass, you'd get all the "wonderful" reflection properties of glass.

I did call Sony today, and they told me "it's not glass or plastic". I still personally call it a plastic though.

Also, if anyone's looked at their NX810 from a way off angle while it's off, they'll notice the screen isn't completely flat (smooth?). Not glass unless they're using 1870 technology to make the stuff.

I've never seen an NX810 and LX900 side by side so I can't make an honest opinion between the two but I liked the specs of the NX810 enough that I bought one of them instead of an LX900.

If you look at some of the pics ppl have posted of the 810 you'll see that rainbow effect from the material on the front of the TV. Glass doesn't do that, it's a result of whatever stuff Sony mixed together to make the anti-glare stuff that's covering the front of the TV.

Just to mention it, if I tap on the screen of my iPhone 4, and the TV. It makes the same sound. The glass covering the photos in my house, windows, etc all sound much different.

I bought monster screen cleaner and had no ill effects to the screen. I had major fingerprints when we put it together and on the stand. Football has never looked better. I love this TV.

I have the Denon 3808 ci also. I was wondering if you could buy a newer version of a 3d Bluray player that had 7.1 outputs like my BDP-S550 has? Use the HDMI from the dvd to the TV with the preouts to the amp? Would that work?

It is definately glass with a layer of anti reflective film. The feeling that you get when touching is from the anti reflective film, thus why the plasticky feeling. Look closely at the edges and you can see the a layer on top of glass. Everything else under the layer is glass. It can crack if hit with enough force, so don't find it out the hard way.

sorry- couldn't resist..

It appears the Iphone4 may be glass after all:

apparently there is a problem with it cracking

The Sony NX710 is listed on SonyStyle Canada and Asia but the US only has NX810.

Does anyone know if the NX710 will eventually be sold in the US?

I am 99% that I saw the NX710 (or similar model being sold at Costco). I stopped by a Costco in Irvine, CA to see if they had the NX801 in-stock. I almost pulled the trigger on that unit cuz they had a special where they threw in a home theater system. They didn't have it, but had a 55 inch NX710. I'm pretty sure it was the NX710 because it had the monolithic styling, plus it claimed to have 240mhz refresh rate.

I ended up going with the NX810 because I wanted a 60" screen, plus wanted the anti-reflective coating. 3D is just a bonus.

They have people already with EX710 in that topic here on AVS. One of them already had to replace it due to an apparent defective panel.
