Awesome, thanks! I'm going to order soon.

I have this "entertainment wall" on order. (http://www.bassettfurniture.com/Trad...Wall-DZ987.asp)

How great will it look in that puppy?

Should take a month or 2 to get here. I ordered from North Carolina and saved $1K off the price. The fact that it swivels will make life much easier when I need to get behind the TV. I only have a few inches to spare on either side. The wife got the furniture she wanted, I get the TV I want... good deal all around.

Just ordered my 55 Ships tomorrow, cant wait
post #35 of 6610
Ordered my 55" NX810 on Oct 4 via an internet vendor, with delivery next week. I ordered as soon as the price dropped, but 1 day later, Sony dropped their sonystyle web site price to match plus a free 3D starter kit. No one has matched this new Sony deal since the starter kit retails for $399 (can get $100 cheaper from internet)

With the new prices plus the free 3D starter kit (glasses + transmitter+ 3d movie), the NX810 is cheaper than the LX900, plus the 55in NX is bigger than the LX AND it has all of the LX bells with better picture-edge LED lighting with local edge dimming.

Oh well-I still think I got a great deal, but will let you know with a review next week. I bought the new Sony BDP-S770 Bluray last week, so I am ready

Update on Oct 8-now many internet vendors are matching the free 3D starter kit offer with a 55NX810 price less than $3K, great deal with a retail of $399 for free and it is a must buy if you want 3D on any model other than LX. I called my internet vendor, and he agreed to honor the deal

I guess this is due to diffraction in the NX810's surface. I wonder if it is related to the 3-D capability?


The deep black panel of the HX800 does the exact same thing when you shine a flashlight directly into it. It's the prismatic effect (light refraction) of the outside screen layer. All the glossy screen treatments out there do this to some degree and the older Sonys (like the previous monoliths) do this as well. I know this because I always carry a flashlight with me when I shop televisions for the sole purpose of seeing how the screens react to bright, more pinpoint, direct light.

I can't find a photograph of the REAR SIDE of the 55NX810 anywhere!

Because I want to install it IN WALL with a decorative wood frame (like a painting) and it needs proper ventilation and has limited space, I need to see where the air vents are located and also want to see the rear connector panel. 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!

Taking delivery of my NX810 tomorrow between 12 and 5. Of course, I have plans to attend a concert tomorrow evening. Looks like my wife will be the first to test drive the new TV.

Good to hear! It's such a simple feature that a lot of manufacturers leave out of the larger TV's that can be so convenient. Not everyone wants to hang their TV on the wall.

BTW, does the 810 have seperate judder and motion blur controls like the Samsung c8000?

It sounds like the 810 is a much better set than the spotlight and cloud ridden Samnsung c8000.

Price will drop a little when BB gets it in stock. I couldnt wait and the %20 deal made the tv cheaper than the current hx800 so I took the plunge.
post #43 of 6610
Is there any reason why I could not use this Monoprice mount?

BTW, Sony's mount usings M6x16mm mounting screws and they use a spacer.


Has anyone noticed the TV is wobbly when on the stand. It just doesn't seem real solid, thus I'm real anxious to get it on the wall.

I don't see a reason you couldn't. I've never had mine on it's stand so can't comment on that.
post #45 of 6610
I hate to tell you all this, but what the heck. If you live near a Nebraska Furniture Mart I picked this TV up on Friday night for $2099. It was on a Managers special. The salesman told me it dropped in price last week from 3299 to 2099. I almost bought the HX800 for 2699 that included a brplayer, 2glasses and transmitter. I said no thanks and bought the NX810 instead.

I love this TV. I am not fighting myself over the 3d part. I just do not think that I would use it much.

what size?
post #48 of 6610
If anyone has mounted this TV successfully (without using the Sony mount), I'd love to hear what size screws you used and where you picked them up.
post #49 of 6610
The mount usually comes with various sizes in order to accommodate many different displays...FWIW

For some reason, none of the screws fit this set. One of the supplied screw set is supposed M6, which is what Sony lists as the screw. Works on my XBR3, but not this set.
post #51 of 6610
Took a trip to Home Depot. I was able to pick up two packages of 6M 16MM screws. Using a standard washer, there was no problem attaching the bracket. FYI for those using screws that come with your mount, be careful. The length of a 16mm screw was shorter than any of the supplied screws that came with my mount.

Just received this new Sony NX810 and it is everything Sony claims it to be. Absolutely the best picture I have seen in a LCD TV and better than my 3 yr old 46XBR4 that had the fluorescent backlighting. This NX810 has a dynamic(local dimming) edge lit LED, and the contrast and blacks are excellent. The 3D is stunning with little ghosting, even with 3D set for max effect. I coupled this NX with Sony's new Blu-RAy S770, and the picture is stunning, as good or better than any theater, and better than my previous LCD TV combo.

My one complaint is that the sound is not what you would expect from a $3K new Sony (tinny and a cheap radio type quality). I was expecting much more since it has 3 speakers built-in. The sound is so poor that after 2 days of numerous comment from other people, I decided to buy the Sony optional Bushin TV stand with built-in speakers just to improve the audio. It appears the speakers are small, rated at 10w and located on the back side of the TV.

I am still playing with the video settings, but I have noticed that imperfections of the incoming signal are much easier to discern than my previous LCD. In fact on the same broadcast, a bad shimmer in the background, will go away and a brilliant fine detail picture comes on when they shift cameras like in a news broadcast.

This NX has wired Ethernet and wireless connectivity, and the streamed HD video from Amazon is excellent. However, you must select 'audio system' on the speaker menu for the TV to output 5.1 audio to your audio amp. (I usually just turn down the TV volume since my amp is connected via the optical output, but this TV model will not output 5.1 unless audio system is selected-meaning the TV speakers are turned off) The NX has LED edge lighting but with local dimming and it results is great contrast. Not sure if the HX909 full LED array backlighting would result in a much better picture.

I also am very happy with the 3D effects. Playing a movie made for 3D, gives you great 3D depth effect, almost as good as the theater. Using simulated 3D on my Avatar Blu-Ray disk resulted in good 3D but the depth was not as good as the movie theater. The picture is also bright in 3D one of my pre-buy concerns. Trying simulated 3D on sports also added depth to many scenes, especially the football if the camera angle was right.

You can buy this TV with a free bundle (various vendors offer the free bundle) that includes everything you need for 3D (transmitter + 2 glasses), plus the bundle gives you a 3D Alice + HDMI cable. So, with the bundle you get everything the LX900 has AND with better picture since the LX is only edge LED with no local dimming.

Overall very happy with this purchase. My only complaint is the "cheap" sound.

Who are you getting to install? How much is it running you? And what mount are you using?

Mine is just sitting in the box while I figure out what mount to buy. Thinking of the OmniMount ULPT-X. So far I've been quoted $250 for install. Wonder if that is too high or about right?
post #55 of 6610
Mounting is easy!! Get a stud finder, drill and a level. You will need someone to help lift the TV. You could lift it by yourself, but get someone to be safe and keep you from smudging the screen.

250.00 seems about right if the electrical outlet and low voltage wall plates are there, if not, that's very fair. Grab a mount from Monoprice...the quality is good and the cost savings is quite a bit.

I dont know which mount I am going with yet, just a slim wall mount with a tilt option. I think someone earlier in this thread recommended a sanus mount and gave the exact part number as well. My install is a little more in depth because I am going in wall for hdmi and installation of a surround sound as well (in wall wiring). $250 isnt absurd but it is fairly easy to do with a stud finder and a friend.

Overall very happy with this purchase. My only complaint is the "tinny" sound-probably because the speakers are directed down where as my old XBR4, has speakers on either side.

Does anyone have any experience with monolithic/ stainless TV stand with built in speakers? Besides looking cool, I wonder how much that improves the sound of the TV. It also doesn't seem like it's available for the 60" which is a shame...

post #60 of 6610
Okay I may be behind the curve on this one but I purchased the wrong model Bravia on Oct 2nd and the price for this model was around $4300. Currently it is showing on Sonystyle for $3300 and I am elated, as I have just returned the incorrect model. My mistake just saved me over a thousand dollars as far as I can tell.

Some questions:

1) Does the swivel stand also tilt? My TV sits very high and id like to tilt it downwards a bit if possible.

2) Why are you guys buying this television and getting the 3D bundle when the LX900 comes with the 3D bundle? Is it just because this one has dynamid LED ? Aside from this there is no difference except that this one does *not* have the motion sensor, and will not turn off when you leave the room like the LX900 will. This one does have the swivel stand and XL900 doesn't ...

3) All of the NX810's come with wireless internet built in, correct? And it works, even with a secured router setup with extremely long passcode?

4) Between the LX900 and NX810 you can see a dramatic difference in shape. The NX810 is significantly less high than the LX900, and therefore looks much longer (even though its not). Does anyone know what accounts for this? Does the LX900 have a fairly large top and bottom border?

5) Does this Television have YouTube interface on it?

I am just waiting for Sony to receive the old TV so i can order this model. I hope they dont take Forever to process the return!!!
