Strange ... got mine yesterday (Tuesday) too! Here's a cut 'n' paste of my original post -- plus additional comments:
Received early this AM my "reshipment" of my 60EX720 (in another thread I'd mentioned that the first delivery was damaged).
[As a basis for comparison, I upgraded to the 60EX720 from a 7 year old 60XBR950 RP)
Comments in NO particular order:
1. Before deciding on the 60EX720, I had read in this forum all the comments about flashlighting, blooming, haloing, et al. FYI the set I received have NONE of those problems, to any degree. "Uniformity" is GREAT ... at least on my set!
The ONLY time blacks exhibit ANY degree of flashlighting is when I ramp up PICTURE, BACKLIGHT, and BRIGHTNESS to MAX settings; and then, the brightening appears relatively uniformly, not just around the edges.
2. Does the picture get "washed out" as you move "off-center"? Yes -- BUT only to a VERY SLIGHT degree. Had I NOT seen user comments here, I would not have even noticed. In my case, I would say that picture "contrast" SEEMS to be "reduced A BIT" when moving off center. What's interesting is that picture quality seems just as good at 89 deg. from center as it is at 60 deg.
3. On the downside: the internal speakers are NOT good at all! I GOTTA get me some external ones.
4. The new menu system will require some getting used to; but right now I don't like it. Bottom line: owning a previous Sony set WILL NOT speed up the learning process for this new menu system.
5. Media Remote on my iPhone works well ... but while it DOES respond quickly, don't expect it to be AS quick as the IR remote.
Addition today: 6. as of now I CANNOT register my 60EX720 with Amazon Instant Video. The instructions at Amazon AND Sony site SEEM to NOT apply to the EX720; the selection doesn't seem to exist on this new menu.
7. I'm at the end of Day 2 with the 60EX720, and something's happening which I DID NOT expect: from posts in other threads I was expecting this Edge LED TV to be darker than a CCFL TV (I also have a 40EX500). This new EX720 seems DAMN BRIGHT to me! And detail seems to stand out more (esp. in mens suits and VERY SUBTLE patterns on screen (ex: the Law and Order series' opening credits: I NOW see each actors' photo go from a newsprint dither to a reg. photo, something I NEVER noticed before.
8. One thing I DON'T like: if the EX720 powers off (manually or power save), it also powers down any Bravia Link equipment (in my case the PS3). Oftentimes I WANT to keep the PS3 powered up such as when I want to recharge the controller.
9. Watching sports (even hockey), the picture motion seems nicely fluid when MOtionflow is set to "Standard".
10. While I can "live with it" ... I'm not happy that the 60" is the ONLY model in EX720 line that cannot swivel or tilt. Swivel would make plugging video sources a lot easier.
11. Perhaps this is a benefit of LED LCD TVs -- as well as its METAL chassis -- but it's nice to have a TV which is "cool" to the touch! No more worries about ventilation!
More later ... including testing the 60EX720's headphone outputs with a pair of AKG Q701 reference headphones. Want to see a) sound quality and b) whether I also need to use a headphone amp (like most pro headphones need)
