Sony KDL55NX810 Television Review-The Audio Lacking

October 22, in LED television

And we close out the week with a look at the Sony KDL55NX810, a television that offers a lot of interesting things to it, though finds itself a bit outmatched by some of the other stuff we’ve had a look at, especially recently.

The Sony KDL55NX810 is a fifty five inch LED television that offers internet connectivity for easy access to a variety of online content options, 3D ready (you’ll need glasses, a Blu-ray player and HDMI cables), Motionflow Pro technology for reduced blurring, Dynamic Edge LED backlighting to improve picture quality even to the edges, OptiContrast panel to cut down on glare, LightSensor technology to compensate light levels based on those in the room, one PC input, four HDMI inputs, one component video inputs, two composite input, one RF antenna input, Ethernet port, USB port, and two ten watt speakers with Dolby Digital.

The good news is that the picture on this one looks pretty nice. It has to–after all, it’s ready for 3D once you add on a few components, and at that point you need a good quality system. The controls are fairly simple and there’s a good amount of support here for both old and new components.  The down side here, however, is the audio.  I didn’t much care for the way this sounded, so if you’re looking to go this route, be sure you have a careful listen to it first to ensure your audio experience is solid. Either that, or have a good home theater system to plug this into so that the end result really doesn’t matter so much.

The folks out at Best Buy are hoping you’ll shell out a whopping twenty nine hundred bucks on this one, which is something of another downside in its own right, but still–that’s quite a bit of cash going out for one single television.

But still–if you’re okay with the audio, and the price tag, you should do very nicely with the Sony KDL55NX810.
