The one I am looking at is the 55hx751 from Costco here in Kingston.
It comes with 2 pairs of 3d glasses.
Coppertone did you ever find out if this is the same as the 55hx750?
I do a mixture of things with tv, hd and sd programming, bluray, and fps gaming, BO2 and MW3.
I know some of you have said gaming is good on this set but I am interested in fps gamers thoughts as that is the most type of gaming I do.
Thanks in advance.


mechman the 55HX751 is the same as the 55HX750. Where your at all they did was change the last number otherwise they are the same.

I wonder if the price will lower before the super bowl?

If so couldn't I just bring in my receipt to get some money back?

I'm also wondering what the 2013 sony line up will be like.

I wish the 750 was monolithic.

I was looking at the AVForum review of the hx753 and this is what it said.

''Though the black level is impressive, the sample supplied did suffer with some clouding problems that intruded with darker scenes, although this could be improved by utilising the control labelled Adv Contrast Enhancer. This is, in reality, the global dimming control where Low is actually the most aggressive setting, rather confusingly. Users will need to balance the use of the control with the fact that it will lose detail in very dark scenes owing to the imprecision of the system; in a perfect world we would prefer not to have used it but given the clouding issues it was preferable to lose a bit of detail rather than suffer unduly with them.''

So the UK model has an option to control the dimming and the US model does not?

I wonder what dimming level the US models are locked on low med or high?

Also the 850 is not available in MN anywhere so that's why I'm also leaning towards the 750.

Hey,

I'm a new HX750 owner, just bought it over the weekend. So far so good. I am happy with the HD quality, especially for sports. The motion sensor is a nice option to have for that. I've watched basketball and football on the new tv and they both look great. The movements are seamless.

So far I have made 2 settings. 1 for sports watching, and 1 for movies/tvshows.

I like how it looks now, but I feel that I could do better with the settings if I understood them a bit better.

For instance, can someone explain what kind of difference the Cinemotion makes?

First I am sure prices will drop for the Superbowl, second the 750 is better off without the gorilla glass. To much glare/reflection.

Are you from MN? What area? I live in St Paul and lastly the funny thing is is that my HX750 has the option to control the dimming of the tv eek.gif.....sorry to let that out.
post #756 of 1878
The only difference is likely in the stand.
post #757 of 1878
So your saying that the advanced contrast enhancer is your frame dimming control?

If not what's the name of the setting that allows you to change the frame dimming?

I'm heading up the cities right now to pickup the 750.

Presumably, he would have the LED dynamic control setting. I wonder if its a demo or review unit that wound up in circulation.

ps. if anyone did ever "call you a liar" Steve, a simple picture of your settings menu would always shut them up smile.gif. I gotta say though, once you said you have that setting option on your set, I spend over an hour trying to find it on mine :P

I'm confused.

I personally think the gorilla glass and opti contrast panel adds great depth and punch to the image.

Careful Steve, don't let the cat out the bag ; )

Everyone needs to take a chill pill......I was only joking about the LED Dynamic Control setting. I dont have it. ; )

post #762 of 1878
So random.
post #763 of 1878
So does ACE control the dimming like th AVf review states?

Steve.......do you have a secret remote code that you use to control the dimming? Lol
post #764 of 1878
Yea the secret code is 1-10 lol.

It dims all the leds on a dark screen, but with any scene with bright objects it won't work. But it could help.

I don't disagree with what you are saying. But the glossy glass shows every reflection which interferes with seeing the actual image. It reminds me of old CRT sets. And glossy bezels are almost as bad.

It's really not that bad on Sony though, its not like a CRT with pure glass as it has a filter.

As i say the resin they put between the lcd panel and the gorilla glass aka the opti contrast part really adds depth, if it's ever to sunny i close the curtains ; )

Hey Aaron I sent you a PM. I agree with what you said about the gorilla glass and opticontrast but I just find the gloss look on the screens really are annoying. On my HX750 the screen seems to have more gloss then the matte finish they say it is and even that can be annoying at times.

Replied mate : )

That's fair enough, and as you say its far from matt finish on the HX750, i had the HX729 last year and it was very shiny, far more shiny than my HX850.

But the HX850 is the right amount in my opinion.
post #770 of 1878
I would like your opinions of some TV’s I am considering. I originally was considering the Sony 55 HX850 but have become concerned of the cost of it ($2000). I am coming from an 8 year old Sony plasma and want to go to an LED TV. Newer technologies will be coming and am concerned about investing too much money on a technology what will be obsolete real soon like(OLED, 4k resolution etc). Also the price of this set has not been discounted as much as I expected, Sony's new policies.. The other sets I have been considering at lower price points are the Vizio E601I-A3 ($999), the Sony KDL60EX645 ($1499) and Sony KDL55HX750 ($1499). But I an concerned with the over quality of black level, black uniformity and off axis viewing of these compared to the Sony 55HX850.
Unfortunately I cannot view these sets in order to compare them and I am looking for suggestions on a direction to go in. Should I wait for the new 2013 tv since they are around they will be released soon?
I would appreciate comments. Thanks for the help.

Tony

Hey Tony here are my view's. First just because OLED,4K ect is just around the corner doesnt mean that the current tv technology is going to become obsolete. It's going to be awhile before OLED and 4K take hold.....a long while. Second you are concerned about how the Sony EX645 and the hx750 measure up to the HX850? I have no clue how the Vizio stacks up to the HX850 and its the same with the Sony EX645 but I will say the HX750 measures up to the HX850 very well. There are some minor differences but not much. I would say you would be happy with the HX750 but that"s coming from a guy who's owned one since Sept of last year and has nothing but positive things to say about it. In the end it's your money and your choice.
post #772 of 1878
I got the 46 750 and it has no clouding but does have some mild flashlighting only in the lower corners very hard to notice though.

I will post pictures of my setup in like a month.

It will include the following.

Sony hx750

Sony super slim PS3.

Sony led digital alarm clock.

Sony hdmi cables.

2012 mac mini.

If Sony made socks I would wear them for sure.biggrin.gif

As far as backlighting goes I plan on mounting 4 ikea color led strips behind the tv in a square shape in the center I will roll with either red or blue.

White won't work since I have tan walls or else I would of gotten a 6500k light.

My bedroom smells like plastic ever since I set the tv up.......Will this go away in the future?

I just got this set yesterday (KDL55HX750) and I'm very pleased with it thus far. I did a quick calibration with the AVSForum basic calibration videos (MP4 on USB) and now the set looks a lot more warmer and natural and not so torched. I think the only calibration that I found difficult was the white level. I still have mine set to Max. I have it on Warmer 2 and the rest very close to the default settings.

Also, how did people calibrate the backlight level? I lowered mine 1 value only just based on comfort.

I have all the other options to off, not really by choice but because that's what happened when I toggled the Display settings to "Custom". I feel like I'm almost missing something or doing a disservice to the set with all the marketed features (like Cinemotion, Mpeg noise reduction, etc...) turned off (or maybe I'm actually doing myself a favour with all of them off :0)).

I did catch a slight unevenness in the brightness on a total black screen off angle in one of the corners (is that what people are referring to as flashlighting?) but I don't really even want to mention it because it's a total non-issue for me.

Initially, I tried the Simulated 3D (first time for 3D of any kind for me) on regular broadcast and thought the whole 3D experience was gimmicky just like I expected. Later last night while browsing the various menus, I tried some of the Sony 3D Demo Material and WOW...particularly the 3D demo where they show some fencing, tennis, and then the Cirque du Soleil type gymnast with all the those stars showering down...I was like "so that's what being on drugs looks like!". I'm sold on the potential of the 3D now. I'm using the PS3 3D Glasses that were going for $20.

Having a network/wi-fi capable TV makes all the difference to me. DLNA video streaming and transcoding have been fine thus far (using Universal Media Server) and it's nice to be able to do that with a DLNA TV instead of through some other device like the PS3 first. I did encounter some stuttering but I'm blaming that on Universal Media Server settings for now and the fact that my PC and computer are right next to each other but the router is all the way 2 floors down in the basement making it a total wireless network. What's great though is that I can flip over to Wi-fi Direct and connect my PC to the TV directly and stream that way instead...haven't had any stuttering when I did that.

It's unfortunate that the set doesn't decode MKV natively as people have mentioned and requires transcoding outside the TV first. Also the set doesn't recognize USB formatted in NTFS.

I frequented this thread before my purchase and while that CNET review gave me some reserve, it's been a great set out of the box thus far. Thanks to all the posters here.

Hello,

Hopefully you guys can help me out with my question. I'm trying adjust my settings but I can't figure out what Cinemotion does.
Can somebody enlighten me?
Thank you

hi guys, I currently have a sony 46" EX500 and while it is a great TV I'm looking to upgrade to a 55" 3D tv. The hx850 is a little more than I am willing to spend but I am very interested in the 750. but I was wondering how the hx750 handles 24p. I love the way my EX500 does 24p, I almost can't watch movies with 3:2 pulldown anymore. Can I assume that the hx750 will show 24p the same way my current TV does? I don't want any soap opera effects like motionflow, and I hope those can be still turned off.

To answer your question's yes the HX750 handles 24p very well and yes you can turn the motionflow features off if you so desire.

thanks steve. looks like this one will be coming home with me in a few weeks!
post #780 of 1878
My 46hx750 looked good when I got it.

It's been one week and the picture has actually improved!

A friend was telling me that I would have to wait for the lights or the lamps to burn onto the screen for me to really know the picture quality.

I'm glad that he was right.

The colors are more vibrant looking now and I think I have my picture settings how I want them... At least for tv and movies. It's a very natural and beautiful picture now.

Very happy with this purchase.
