I picked up our new KDL-60NX800 today. Beautiful TV, very happy. However, I don't really want to wall mount it, so I will have to find a nice stand for it, large enough to hold the components, and the unusually shaped center channel (JBL LC2). I might have to either have one custom made, or make one myself.

The box is 40" X 60" X 19".

Is the stand is attached to the set at the factory, or did you have to do it?

Thanks so much for the measurements! The 19" depth may be a problem... I'll have to remeasure the elevator.

the stand is not assembled. you need to attach the LCD to the base

My box was not that thick and it easily fit in my elevator

I was surprised how small the box was for this size panel. not much larger than the display itself

My set was delivered yestered from hhgregg. They were supposed to set it up, but proved to be slightly less astute than the Keystone Cops so before they really messed something up bad (they came close), I said "See ya!" Unacceptable speakers, unless I am missing something. My KDL-55NX810 is resting on a table with the small base stand like you have pictured. I would like to get the SU-B550S speaker stand, but that can't look too cool hanging out both sides of the table, can it? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hmm, that's strange...my tv was fully assembled, with the stand already attached. Just had to lift it out of the box, and hook it up. That's why the box is 19" wide, to accomodate the stand.

What's the difference between the 800 and the 810? I noticed that when shopping, there was a subtlely different model number between several stores, although the tvs looked identical.

I bought my 800 from the Sony store.

It usually depends on the size of the screen. Usually any screen less than 46 will require you to mount the stand manually. Anything larger would be pre-assembled because it's not easy lifting a 52"+ set and attaching the stand with ease.

Not really .. when I got my 55nx810 , i had to put the stand by myself.. but it was not that bad.. had to lift the TV once though....

I bought the 46nx810 last week.

I had to return it today.

1. sound was terrible. already have a HT on my downstairs tv didnt want to buy another.

2. There glare on this TV was really bad. Part of the reason I got LED over plasma was because of glare.

But as far as PQ it was great. And the best blacks ive seen on an LED.

So if you want to get a HT and have a light restricted room this TV is excelent.

Did some one try vizio sound bar? I saw it at Costco sub $100

Last night we signed up for and activated the TV's Qriocity On Demand movies feature. It works GREAT!!!

We ordered a Qriocity 3D movie. It streamed directly to the TV via the Lan ethernet cable. There were no buffering problems as you sometimes see with Netflix. The price was reasonable at $4.99. The quality was EXCELLENT- better than Netflix I think. There is a large selection of 2D movies available, but still very few 3D ones. See: https://qriocity.com I wonder when and if Netflix will begin offering instant 3D movies?.

I will be installing my 55NX810 in a recessed cavity that I’m constructing in my living room wall. The wall has typical wood studs covered with drywall. I’m redoing the stud arrangements to accommodate the TV. I’ll hide most of the TV bezel with a pretty decorative wood frame made by Larson-Juhl.
See
http://www.larsonjuhl.com/p-1538-735...2628&CatId=175

The face of the TV will be mounted so that it is flush with the drywall and it will have an open space all around it. The frame will cover most of the bezel with just ¼” of bezel visible. It will be attached to the wall with Velcro. Fortunately, behind the wall is a utility closet, so I can remove both drywall layers behind the TV to provide good ventilation. Components will be hidden in an antique wood chest underneath the TV. The TV will get its remote control IR signals from a tiny hidden IR emitter behind the frame located just in front of the IR receiver that’s in the lower left bezel of the TV. The 3D emitter will be located in the antique wood chest behind black speaker cloth. All cabling will be invisible located in and behind the wall. I'm using a slim Sanus LL11-B1 wall mount ( http://www.sanus.com/ca/en/products/...ile-mount/LL11 ) that's attached to two 1.5" steel angle irons because there is not enough space for wood studs.

I’m replacing my old in wall 45” Sharp TV with the new 55NX810.

The contractors begin work next week. I’ll show you photos when it’s done. Wish me luck!

Here is a drawing of the frame and a side view of the wall cavity, the new stud configuration, and a photo of my old setup:

Looks like a nice set-up you've got going there John. Good luck with it. Please post finished pix!
I spent all weekend setting up my 55NX810, with the PlayStation3. I'm real happy with what I see so far. Can't say I'm crazy about the audio. I will be addressing that in the near future.

thanks for this review. It is more in line with my experience than the other bad review of televisioninfo.com where it reported low luminance levels of the 200 range. This hardware zone reports 271 luminance numbers and describes the display as very bright compared to others. It also says the picture and 3D is better than the LX. It confirms the bad audio quality and the need for the Bushin optional stand and its stand speakers, although in the US the stand cost $350 and is not part of the free bundle.

So the KDL-55NX810 is a LED or LCD TV?? And is the local dimming feature make a HUGE difference apposed to the KDL-55NX800? I don't now much about the subject but I do want to buy the KDL-55NX810 but don't know if there is anything better out there for the same price range.

The HX800 has the same type of edge-lit local dimming as the NX810. The only difference between them is that the NX810 uses the "opticontrast panel" and the HX800 uses the "deep black panel". Im not sure if one is really considered better than the other for PQ. Doesnt seem like one is being marketed as having any advantage over the other.

When I saw both in the store the only difference i noticed was that the NX810 was much brighter using the same picture settings...
post #348 of 6610
Thanks for the response. I am buying from US Appliance and they have a bundle on both TV's. I am trying to figure out if it is worth the extra $500 to get the KDL-55NX810 opposed to the KDL-55NX800. Do they both look the same?

Deals:

Sony 3D Blu-ray player
2 Sony 3D Glasses
3D Transmitter
KDL-55NX800



160GB PS3
Alice and Wonderland bundle (Glasses, transmitter, HDMI Cable that looks cheap, 3d Movie)
KDL-55NX810


Your feedback is greatly appreciated guys!

To be clear, there is no "KDL-55NX800". There's a 52" NX800, but not a 55". So, what do you get for the price difference?
  • 3" bigger screen
  • OptiContrast panel vs. "deep black" panel (a la HX800)
  • Full-array (dynamic) edge-lit dimming
  • 3D capability

Hopefully that clears it up.

My bad, i thought he was talking about the HX800 which is essentially the same as the NX810 for PQ...although one difference i saw was that the NX810 is brighter.

If its the NX800 vs NX810 definitely go for the NX810...

go for the NX810. It is brighter, less reflections and looks better design wise. Per this hardwarezone.com review it provides a better picture than the HX and the LX. www.televisioninfo.com has detailed reviews on the LX, NX, HX, although their NX review numbers are not accurate-the hardwarezone.com is accurate. I for one think the NX is worth the extra bucks. The only issue is the audio quality and I assume the HX has the same propblem. Now, the HX909 is full array LED and should be the best picture but its around $3400 with no deals. There was a comparison on the various models features somewhere in this thread that I thought was great to help in your decision and clearly the NX was the best value in the features area especially with the free bundled 3D starter kit

Thanks for all of the information guys! I just ordered my 55 inch NX810 last night from US Appliance. I cannot wait to play Call of Duty in 3D! Crossing my fingers that it does not have any problems!

I'm probably not going to mount it just yet, but eventually I do have plans to mount. I'm considering the Sanus (or similar monoprice) mount so it can practically be flush against the wall. The other mount I'm considering is the Costco fully articulating mount:

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...S&Sp=C&topnav=

The flush mount would look really nice with the slim TV, but I also think it'd be cool to actually pull the TV towards the couch a couple of feet in some cases too, and the fully articulating mount would be perfect for that.

I have a Harman Kardon AVR-347 receiver, which isn't HDMI 1.4 compatible, so I guess I'm going to have to run optical out of the PS3 to the receiver, and then run the HDMI 1.4 from the PS3 to the TV directly. Have any of you run into this dilemma with these older receivers (not THAT old!)? What do you plan to do?

Speaking of cables, which ones are you guys getting from monoprice? I've read that most of you have bought your HDMI cables from there...but since there are so many choices, what is everyone going with?? Maybe this one:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

I'll post some pictures of the set-up once I get it. Please post pictures of your set-up if you can! I really love seeing others because I plan on renovating my family room and may try to customize it for my home theater set-up.

Well, I've got a Harman Kardon AVR 510 that's about 9 years old, no HDMI at all, just component/S-video/composite switching, plus optical and coaxial inputs. I've got two HDMI peripherals (a PS3 and an HK upscaling DVD player), so I ran those directly to the TV, then connected the optical audio output of the TV to the receiver. When I want to play a digital source, I just select the video source on the TV, then pick "VIDEO 4" on my AVR, which I've configured to use Optical 1.

In your case, I suspect you could do much the same thing... rather than running the optical directly between your PS3 and receiver, just run that between your TV (optical out) and the receiver instead. Thus, if you had multiple HDMI 1.4 sources, you wouldn't need a cable and input for each one. AFAIK (correct me if I'm wrong, folks), the TV should be able to split out the same audio that the PS3 would be sending directly on its own optical out, even if it's Dolby or DTS hi-def, yes?

Regarding the cable you selected... if you're only going six feet, I can honestly say that 24AWG is overkill. I've actually bought some of their heavy-gauge HDMI-to-DVI cables, mine were jacketed with plastic braid/mesh which I found kinda annoying (these don't appear to have the mesh, though). They're nice, don't get me wrong, but they're almost too heavy, don't curl easily, might cause issues in tight environments or behind your receiver. And they won't make your audio or video sound or look any better. They've got 28AWG cables that are certified for high-speed and 3D that will more than do the job. For longer runs, maybe consider getting a fatter cable, but it's not like analog video/audio cable, where you might get a marginally better signal - either the cable can handle high-speed HDMI at that length, or it can't.

What size did you end up getting and how far from your set are you sitting? I'm 9 feet away and I'm scared that 55" would be too big.

Also, you seem to be doing some xbox 360 gaming, notice any input lag while playing with game scene?

thanks,

Ha... I've got a smallish living room, and the TV is probably about nine feet away from me as well. 55" is just fine... I think a 60" would be bordering on "too big", and a 65" definitely would be.

I just received my 55NX810 bundle from US appliance this morning. The box was pretty beat up, I almost refused it but didn't want to wait for a replacement. I set it up and it looks great, no damage found (thank god!). I just watched Alice in 3D through the PS3 that came in the bundle (after upgrading the firmware to 3.5). The PS3 runs through my Onkyo TX-808 and then to the TV with high speed HDMI. Everything works, passing the 3D works perfect.
I have one question, I didn't get any paperwork with the TV. I am aware of the I-manual, but nothing was in the box. No quick set up guide, no warranty card, no manual, no micro soft cloth, nothing. Just the TV remote and stand. I want to register my TV at Sony and get the free 3D movies and 4 3D game downloads. I wall mounted the TV and can't read the back of the unit with out taking it down and I assume I need the Serial number to register it. Can I find the serial number on the I manual?? Maybe on the box?

Thanks,
Mike



I found the serial number on the lower right corner on the back. I was able to take a picture of it by sliding my camera behind the tv.
I registered with sony and the 2 free movies are on their way, but how do I get the 4 free 3D PS3 games?

You absolutely should have received some paperwork with your TV, a not-terribly-thick printed manual, warranty affirmations, printed instructions on how to assemble the TV stand, and I think the scratch-off card for 3D games. Double-check the contents of your box, maybe you accidentally tossed it aside when unpacking it (or maybe they were somehow lost during transit, maybe one of the delivery guys checked inside the damaged box to make sure the TV was still OK). If they're not in there, call Sony, I should think they'd be able to hook you up. Make sure you ask about the 3D games insert. I'm not 100% positive, since I unpacked my TV materials and PS3 materials at about the same time, but I think the games insert may have been included with the TV. If not, then it came with the PS3.

As for finding out the serial number, in addition to stickers/etc, you can drill into the Help menu, and select "Contact Sony" which will list phone numbers and URLs, but also show the unit model number, serial number, and firmware revision.

Thanks again ProtocolOH. I found it. I, too, unpacked the PS3 and TV and that pack of TV info was in the PS3 pile of of stuff.
