Excerpt: There is an increase in the movies and television programs being made with 3D and HD support. A modern family requires a set that offers the exact video quality to enjoy the latest 3D content along with the traditional 2D content. This model satisfies these requirements with features to enjoy both 2D and 3D content in an enhanced 1080p HD resolution. Further, a viewer can enhance the quality of the 2D content and enjoy these with an up-converted 3D quality.
Summary: Albeit expensive and plagued by 3D image issues, the beautifully styled Sony KDL-NX720 has better picture quality than most other edge-lit LED-based LCD TVs.
Pros: The Sony KDL-NX720 series produces deeper black levels than any edge-lit LED-based TV we've tested. It evinces relatively accurate color, has a uniform screen for edge-lit LED, and can properly handle 1080p/24 sources. It has a beautiful, thin-profile exterior design with flush Gorilla Glass, it has built-in Wi-Fi, and its Internet suite includes numerous streaming services and widgets.
Cons: The expensive KDL-NX720 shows some blooming artifacts and crushes detail in shadows, and its image deteriorates more noticeably than usual when seen from off-angle. The design of its menu and Internet services is lackluster, and Sony does not include 3D glasses. Its 3D image is poor, with significant crosstalk, flicker when dejudder is turned off, and extreme intolerance to head tilt.
Conclusion: You may have noticed that we’ve gone out of our way in this review to highlight the differences between the NX720 and its XBR counterpart. Here’s why: The NX720 is such an outstanding television that we think it will be the better choice for many buyers. It’s easier to set up, it’s local dimming does a terrific job, it’s slimmer, looks fantastic and, best of all, it’s less expensive.
Pros: Excellent black level and contrast, Very bright white levels, Slick, flat panel with darkened, anti-glare glass, Built-in Wi-Fi, plenty of Internet apps, Quick network media access
