            Comments about Sony KDL46HX820 46" 1080p 3D LED TV:

            I bought this model 46in from BH about 8 months ago and this tv is exceptional.The GORIILA panel is very thin , like a cristal and the resolution , the contrast and the colors are awesome.The movement is perfect due to the 240hz and of course you need a good HDcable to apreciate the real quality of the imagen Audio is OK , no need of any extra speakers unless you really like extra sound like in the cinema .Internet options are a good feature and 3D is excellent for kids and a litle tiring for the seeing. Just for try once , but for watching tv and playing movies this is the best investment people can do. LOVE IT

                  Hi,

                  I am professional photographer and I bought that TV to display my pictures (as I do on my 21" Samsung monitors)

                  Warning: the TV will NOT DISPLAY any picture file that have been modified from the original (cropt, re-sized,etc...).

                  I contacted SONY, they told me that the TV can only diplay picture in "original camera" format.

                  So, if you're looking for a TV that will give you beautifull giant slideshows, that's not the one !

                  For everything else, movies, DVDs, internet, the TV is great !

                  I hope my review will help other photographers.

                  Alex, Florida

                  (by the way, you can't return a TV to B&H if the size is over 37")

                  Comments about Sony KDL46HX820 46" 1080p 3D LED TV:

                  Hi,
                  That is a great image quality TV (the sound quality could be better).
                  I'm a photographer and the main reason why I bought that TV is to be able to watch my pictures on the 46" HD screen.
                  But the TV won't display any picture file that have been modified (croping, resized, etc...)
                  I contacted Sony and also downloaded the lastest firmware without been able to fix the problem.
                  Again, great TV but not for pictures !
