I didn't see any reviews of the NX720 in this thread. Please, forgive if this has been previously posted as it didn't turned-up during a search.

: Visible crosstalk; visible image cropping in all aspect ratios; Web browser lacks Flash support; weird remote design.The bottom line
: The Sony Bravia KDL-46NX720 is a handsome and well-equipped 3D TV, but is held back by moderate crosstalk that's visible during 3D playback.Review:
The Sony Bravia KDL-46NX720 is the successor to the Editors' Choice KDL-46NX710
, which stood out among the competition for its flicker-free 3D pictures. This 2011 model not only sports the same attractive monolithic design, but has also been updated with new features. These include an Internet browser and Corning's Gorilla glass protection. That said, we found its 3D performance can be a bit lacking compared with other new 3D TVs, especially in terms of crosstalk reduction.Performance
Standard-definition (SD) content
Couch potatoes will not be disappointed by the sanitized and sharper-than-usual free-to-air TV visuals offered by this Bravia. Stepping up to digital broadcasts yielded even clearer reception resulting in much lower ghosting and "blockiness". We were impressed with the mostly jaggies-free DVD upscaling, as well as the effective Detail and Edge Enhancer reinforcing subtle details without amplifying noise. Our biggest gripe here was the moderate image cropping visible in the Full Screen aspect ratio. Still, this did not stop the Sony from achieving perfect color decoding and grayscale tracking scores in Avia test patterns.High-definition (HD) content
While film lovers might find the KDL-46NX720's razor-sharp HD pictures a tad unnatural, it was hard to fault its warm cinematic colors. This ensures skin tones were faithfully depicted onscreen beside a palette of rich saturated hues. Another strong proposition was the expert balance of deep blacks and revealing shadows, which outclassed both the Samsung D8000 and LG LW6500
. Adding to this sterling performance was judder- and artifact-free motion while playing 24p Blu-ray films.It is a pity this TV lacks a dot-to-dot aspect ratio or else it could have been a flawless showing since we did not encounter any issue during HQ-HQV's Video and Film Resolution Loss tests.
Sadly, it was less clear cut for 3D performance. On the one hand, a combination of layering depth and flicker-free visuals made watching 3D content more convincing and enjoyable throughout the day. This was matched by noticeably smoother motion compared with its predecessor, as well as a fairly effective 2D-to-3D conversion engine and good sharpness to boot. On the other hand, the KDL-46NX720 exhibited far more crosstalk when we placed it alongside a Samsung D8000 and Panasonic VT20. There was also a tendency for the 3D effects to fluctuate when there were major head movements. The good news is that the glasses do not blackout around 90-degree angles.Games, PC and Multimedia
In game mode, this 46-incher delivered crisp and fluid graphics for gaming with negligible video-processing lag. A 1080p PC feed supplied through the PC input displayed clearly legible text and banding-free color gradations, too. We had no problem working with most supported media files, including 1080p AVCHD clips streamed remotely from a DLNA-ready server, save for our MPO (3D photo) collection which failed to play altogether on the Bravia. Lastly, Bravia Internet Video was relatively easy to use and delivered acceptable picture quality, but Web browsing was kind of sluggish.http://asia.cnet.com/product/sony-br...d-45438794.htm
