    UPDATE: I have started to get the popping and clicking noises as well. I have seen it mentioned several other places as well. It sounds like old monitors when they turn on. It does it for about an hour after I turn it on and about an hour after I turn it off. Very annoying.

    This tv is incredible! The design is very sleek and understated. It has a much more expensive feel than all of those Samsung TV’s with their plastic see through bezels. Those come off as kinda cheap looking to me. And the picture is just stunning. Very rich colors and dark blacks. It does have a glass face, so in super dark scenes (where the picture is almost black) you can see some reflections if the lights are on. But otherwise I don’t see any reflections at all. The only other thing I can say about the picture is that at extreme off angles, the picture does get pretty light. But I wouldn’t be watching from that angle anyways as it is basically completely to the side of the TV.

    The other cool thing about the TV is all of the internet connectivity. It has built in wifi (no need to buy a dongle!), so it is easy to connect. It has tons of content providers: youtube, pandora, netflix, amazon rentals, slacker radio, podcasts, etc. etc.. The youtube client was actually very nice and useful. I wish I had a netflix account so I could try out that service. But it looks cool. There was also a library of Michael Jackson videos loaded onto the TV. A nice little tribute to the man.

    There are some widgets for things like weather, stocks, facebook, twitter, etc.. I think the only one of those that I’d really use would be the weather widget, but who knows. At least it is there.

    All in all, I don’t think you can get a better TV right now. I am extremely satisfied and impressed.

    I’ve purchased this TV around end of March (manufactured date January 2010). Noticed a unusual distribution of back lighting in the form of vertical lines. Two in the lower quarter portion of the screen and one in the center top portion of the screen. After Sony authorized repair shop guy verified the problem they proceed to replace the video panel. Where I’ve discovered that “Sharp” video panel was in this TV model (previous Sony TVs used Sony/Samsung video panel). Addition to replaced video panel showing the same symptom, now I have dust all over the interior of TV screen. Because this model has glass frame covering the actual video panel, once you open the unit dust get trapped inside. My TV went through three different video panels (which did not correct the problem but merely improved), and two failed cleaning attempts. It just didn’t make any sense why Sony is wasting their resources replacing the same parts numerous times while creating additional problems. It seems so logical to swap the problem TV with the replacement. Repair shop on the other hand was happy to keep working on the problem TV since they get paid each time they do the job. By looking at the other reviews I’m not the only one with these problems.

    In addition to the problems I’ve mentioned earlier are; mysterious cracking/clicking noise, inadequate speakers, and poor finish (bad plastic molding and dented TV stand). All which Sony deny there is any issue and unwilling to accept the cosmetic defects. So if you have scratches and dent on the unit but it displays pictures then you are out of luck. As a loyal patron to Sony, this one really hits me below the belt. And because of my experience with Sony, they lost half a dozen customers (friends and family member), who were also eyeing on this model but moved on to different brand’s 3D TV.

    UPDATE:

    Finally a light at the end of the tunnel. After another cleaning attempt failed miserably Sony finally decided to do the logical thing, exchange the the whole unit. After three months of ordeal now I have a problem-free new unit (Manufactured date April, 2010). I hope others learned from my experience. If you are faced with similar situation where you have to open the unit up…DON’T!!! Insist Sony on other options and talk to higher level tech support. I change the rating from 1 star to 3 stars since the main problem got resolved but I’m still upset I have Sharp TV.

    Sony did not say why TV makes clicking noise but I found out when you turn off the TV, it’s not really off. Networking and other features are still on. If you press i/o button on the back of the remote you can hear another click even your TV screen is off.

    I have bought a Sony NX800 a couple of weeks ago and I felt the need to inform potential buyers of a substantial problem in this model: you are very likely to hear creaks for around 30′-60′ after turning the TV on and after turning it off. It seems due to the very cheap plastic used by Sony for a model which is advertised as a high-end TV. Before putting a product on the market, any reliable company will test it, but not SONY.

    After a quick search on the Internet, I found comments of people having the same problem in addition to black cones visible on the edges of the screen (the uneven backlighting indicated in another review).

    I have also witnessed the uneven backlighting on this particular TV. Very frustrating. It almost looks like someone cut a slight horizontal line with a razor behind the pixels.

    Folks, first off, PLEASE be aware that if you purchase this TV from a third party here on Amazon, you will not be able to return it as others have stated – so again, if you can’t purchase directly from “Sold by Amazon”, then you’re hosed if you get a defective TV – if you purchase from “FlyingMoth” Photo you are totally out of luck – not a good idea as they will just tell you to call the manufacturer if you have any issues – you’ve been warned. Nice LCD, but Sony has lost much of its quality, they are making sets as cheap as possible, yet charging more than usual for the name. Got this from another vendor (Amazon is not selling this directly, it’s through the ‘flyingmoth’ vendor). Yes, creaks, pops, and occasional noises – makes it a bit harder when it’s in the bedroom and you turn it off to go to sleep. Nice picture – but as others mentioned, it is now a badged over Sharp panel with similar specs.
