Sony XBR-55HX929 3D LCD HDTV First Impressions Review$3,799.00
We're a bit confused about the Sony XBR-HX929. Sony's press conference was full of pageantry, such as a 2-minute Seth Rogan appearance and Cirque de Soleil Elvis dancers, but their TV line is suspiciously devoid of any. There were no ticker-tape parades for a new 0.0001" bezel, a hologram remote, or 3D that gets beamed into your head. We're really not sure what the XBR-HX929 has going for it above and beyond past Sony models—and we're certainly not sure how it competes with the innovations from other manufacturers at the show. Regardless, the TV looked good for what it was. If they can compete on the price point and offer affordable 3D, then really, there's no need for any bells and whistles.
The TV is coming out in April, so we should have one in house a bit before that. We'll keep you up to date on how this innocuous TV blossoms into something worthy of purchase.
