          Comments about Sony KDL65HX729 65" Class HX729 Smart 3D LED TV:

          I have now had this TV for 8 days and so far I really like it. Standard delivery took about 8 days. It showed up in good condition. The box was a little damaged, but that is what the box is for. I connected a HDMI cable from my cable box to the TV, and turned it on. The TV first asked me several questions as it "configured itself", connected to my wireless internet, etc. After that, I had to change the input select to the correct setting, and then I was watching crisp, clean, smooth, hi-def TV. I have not done anything except watch cable TV with it so far, so I cannot comment on it's extra features such as 3D or Netflix.The sound is good enough, but not great. The picture is excellent. Even when watching fast action sports, it is smooth and very clear. This is my first HD TV, so I cannot comment on how much better it is than other TVs, but I noticed that some of the big-screens at out local Sam's had pictures that were "jumpy" compared to mine. Others there seemed to be as good, but I did not notice any that were clearly better.Overall, I really love my new TV!
