     So, I am replacing a large 61" Sony XBR RPTV, with a very highly reflective surface that NEVER attracted dust ever, with a flat panel LCD, most likely a 65" Sony XBR 900A UHDTV, to be wall mounted. ( I am considering a few other televisions also, but the 2013 XBRs are the top of my short...

    Hello, I recently bought the kd55x9005 TV. However I am really struggling to actually watch 4k content on it. I have figured out it is basically impossible to do it via plugging in external hard drives into the TV via usb. The reasoning behind it from what I have gathered is the actual media...

    For example --- does 2D 1080p look better on a Sony 55X900A (ultra) or a 55W900A ? or a Samsung 65F9000(ultra) or a 65F8000? Is the PQ difference between the ultra and flagship 2K sets marginal? Thanks in advance?

    I was in Japan a few weeks ago and had the opportunity to see several 4K TVs side by side playing the same content in some Japanese electrons stores. Now admittedly, they all looked great but I was shocked to see that the Toshiba models looked the best. For what ever reason the picture was...

    I have read the on-line manual and understand the X1 should be hard-wired to the router. This would be a problem for me. Since the unit does not stream, I was wondering if anyone has hooked the unit up the 55X900A's LAN plug. I can accept a slower download but cannot (will not) run a 40 foot...

    I'm currently looking to upgrade my tv and would appreciate people's input. By far, the most important feature to me is picture quality (including a strong refresh rate). Smart features and 3D are bonus, but far from required. In doing brief in person and online research, I really like both...

    Just got 55" and removed my 3 channel sound bar because it look bad with this new tv and its built-in speakers. The speakers do sound good but now I lost my surround sound system. My receiver has pass-thru so I leave it off and it still passes the audio/video through. I ran audio out to my sub...

     When is a bargain not a bargain? "Buy cheap, buy twice" is the nugget of wisdom that guides all of my consumer-electronics purchases. A 2160p UHDTV is at the top of my must-have list, so inevitably I became curious about the 50" Seiki SE50UY04 UHDTV, which sells for a fraction of what other...

    ***Dropped the price to $3500*** definitely the lowest price you will see on this tv anywhere. With 5% sales tax on the retail price, that is an $1550 savings. If you are in the market for the best 55" TV made, then this is it. The best 55" TV ever released by Sony, brand new "Beyond HD" 4K...
