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.


I highly doubt your picture quality got better because the lights or lamps burnt into the screen. More then likely its your settings that make the PQ look good. LED's dont burn into the screen my friend. rolleyes.gif

Gonna go with Steve on this one.

There is a slight settling in stage once its on the stand etc but it doesn't work like plasma.

Much more likely it's your settings.

Oh ok.

I may have been misinformed. But something did improve with the picture.

Maybe I've been tinkering with the settings so much that my mind has played tricks on me.

When I first got the tv, the picture looked a bit lighter. The colors looked bright but not solidly bright. Almost like a haze or a slight mist over the overall picture.

It seems to be more solid and warmer looking a week later.

Maybe it is the settings, but it just seemed like when I turned the tv on this weekend that there was an improvement. It's hard to tell because it was such a subtle difference.

Thanks.

I had a rough end of the week so maybe my mind told me to find a silver lining in my tv. lol

hahah ahh man the most heated debate on this forum for sure.

I'll say this much: If the 750 does indeed have Local Dimming, it is by far the worst name for a feature I've ever seen. My entire screen dims (and brightens) all at once, all at the same time, and all at the same levels. That's all I know.

Well the HX750 does indeed have local dimming and I think the feature works very well and does what it is supposed to do. That's all I know as well, lol.

So I've read all 27 pages off this thread as well as other websites of opinions. Do the folks on this thread feel that they would buy a HX750 again? Reviewers seem to have concerns on backlighting and contrast. I see many comments on returns and Amazon does not have many reviews in comparison to other in-class TVs. I am about to pull the trigger on one and even after reading everything am unsure of a general consensus. Thanks!
post #790 of 1878
My opinion: If it's what you can afford, I'm sure you will be happy with it. I still think black levels are it's weakness. If you can afford the 850, I would go for it. Around here, both the 750 and 850 have had $500 price reductions for boxing day, so the 850 is the same price the 750 used to be.

Hello there. I've had the Sony KDL46HX750 for a little over week. I was just wondering if the PS3 3D glasses are compatible with this model? I still haven't bought glasses so if anyone knows this it would be appreciated. Thanks!
post #792 of 1878
Has anyone figured out how to mute the beep sound whenever you are navigating in the menus of the TV set whether it's toggling Home, or moving up and down within the menu settings?

In addition, for those streaming video to the TV, has anyone figured out how to jump to a specific time in a video? The only thing I know is pressing the right arrow will fast forward, pressing the up arrow will skip in I think in 30 second increments but I can't seem to find an option to input and skip to a specific time.

I would buy another HX750 again no questions asked. My tv has been one of the best investments I have ever made. The PQ and black levels are excellent. I would say they are on par with the HX850 even though some would not agree with that statement but hey they have their opinion and I have mine. I say pull the trigger and buy one.

To answer your question yes the PS3 3D Glasses are compatible with the HX750.

Thank you Steve. :-)
post #795 of 1878
Sorry guys I had to return the 750 today after I saw this 2013 panasonic.

It has an IPS panel and a super slim frame.

The 750 just seemed like a TV from 2010 or something.

I also looked at the sony 2013 lineup and they looked sort of ugly.

This is my final goodbye to this thread.......see ya.

post #796 of 1878
Thanks lucidream & steve1971 I appreciate your feedback.

I stopped on the way home from work and looked again at it in person. They have a demo they said they just got this week with pictures of various color bars and white/dark charts and some photos. They are running the demo on the 750 and I had them run it on the Panasonic ST50 and the Samsung 7500 for comparison. WOW, huge differences in the colors viewed and the gradient of greys. ST50 did nice on the grey chart but was not as good as I expected with all the A+ reviews on it. It also did not show all the gradient bars of colors the sony did. The Samsung was bad in comparison.

Checked and all three TVs seemed to be at default 'Vivid' configs. The Sony showed sooo much more its hard not to throw the money down right there. Granted this demo is recommended from Sony but it was pretty night and day. The sales guy was good enough to grab an over the air HD antenna off the shelf and plug it in, as I don't have cable, to show me what the same signal source I have at home will look like. Very Nice, clean and distinct and good colors and nice movement. I also think I have convinced myself against the Plasmas due to lighting in the room which leaves this tv or the Samsung and I have yet to see a Samsung that I liked how it looked, always seems cloudy.

Will be joining this thread soon and hopefully not asking too many configuration questions. wink.gif

Is that the Panasonic equivalent to the 750? If so, it looks pretty nice!

I guess the question is then, what in your opinion is the Local Dimming feature supposed to do?

local dimming is when sections of the LED array are turned off or dimmed to help produce the deep blacks........like the famous Kuro deep blacks. Is that a good enough explanation for you gator? If you need me to explain more then by all means just ask. And no gator I aint saying the HX750 has Kuro blacks because lets face it I dont think there is a set out there that does. But the 750 produces very good black levels in my book, at least more then good enough to satisfy me. It may not for some but to each is own as they say.

Doubt it, with an ips panel that can't even crack 1000:1 native contrast, the Sony is at around 3000:1.

I would have said that Aaron but I didn't have a flame suit available.

Haha, good one Steve ; )

I personally wouldn't be returning my Sony because the Panasonic has a slimmer bezel....personally for me it's picture quality that takes priority. But that's me.

Hello again. I bought PS3 3D glasses today but how do I sync them i.e. does the red light has to become stable? Thanks.

"local dimming is when sections of the LED array are turned off or dimmed to help produce the deep blacks"

If that is what Local Dimming is supposed to do, then the 2 sets I've had fail to do that. For instance: If I have an all black (blank) screen the image is as dark as can be. If say an amount of white text enters the screen anywhere whatsoever, my entire screen all at once will brighten evenly to a brighter "black". When that image leaves, or if a portion of it leaves and some remains, the entire screen will dim down to a deeper black all at once very evenly, not necessarily any specific section of it. I dunno, maybe the 2 sets I've had just failed to "locally" dim sections. rolleyes.gif

Don't know what to tell you gator. Wish I had an answer for you but I don't.

The HX750 doesn't have local dimming. It dims the entire screen when a dark image is shown and raises the luminance/brightness when something light enters the screen as you have seen. The step up HX850 has local dimming as does the HX950.

Thanks Aaron for throwing that in there. I should have been more clear in my explanation. In some of Sony's add's or flier's they dont make it clear that the HX750 dont have the local dimming feature so I can see where people can become confused.

Correct smile.gif

Sorry Steve, I was just playing nice/dumb in my case. Like I said before "Local Dimming" is either the worst name for a feature on this set, or this set does not have what Sony deems as being "Local Dimming".

I forget who all it was many many many pages ago on here (and I'm too lazy to look it up) but they argued back and forth, despite oogles of evidence to the contrary, that the 750 did indeed locally dim specific sections of the screen just like the 850 and above. It clearly does not.

EDIT: Still a nice set though! As long as I keep a few lamps on in the living room, this set looks almost flawless. The random rebooting on the other hand.... smile.gif
