Sony XBR-55HX929 3D LCD HDTV First Impressions Review$3,799.00
Tour & Design
The front of the Sony XBR-55HX929 features a solid pane of glass, in keeping with Sony's 2010 aesthetics. It's a sleek design with a narrow bezel, though you'll probably want to keep external light sources out of the room: they'll totally break down the 3D effect.
We didn't get to see the back of the device, since it was wall-mounted.
From what we could see, the TV has a few side-facing ports on its left side and on-set controls on the right side.
We saw TVs with both a stand and a wall mount at Sony's booth, along with the assurance that both options would be available for the entire 2011 line-up. The other option is the speaker bar stand, which allows the TV to be tilted backwards and forwards easily.
From looks alone, this TV doesn't offer anything new compared to older Sonys. Despite not totally redefining HDTV design as we know it, the XBR-55HX929 is still a great-looking TV.
