The Sony 70" KDL-70R550A R550 Series 3D LED Internet TV is a 2D/3D Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Edge LED Backlight technology, which enhances contrast and reproduces images with sharp clarity. The TV also features built-in Wi-Fi, Ethernet connectivity, Miracast wireless mirroring and Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL). With Wi-Fi, you can stream a variety of Internet content from the Sony Entertainment Network, as well as DLNA home network content. Miracast and MHL allow you to connect your compatible mobile device to the TV, so you can mirror your mobile media on the TV's big 1920 x 1080 screen.

Besides Edge LED Backlight technology, this TV also supports Live Color technology to emphasize vividness of color. Plus, Motionflow XR 240 ensures fast-paced action movies and sports are blur-free and more natural looking. This model provides passive 3D with an enhanced 3D sound profile as well. Four pairs of 3D glasses are also included. Other video features include an Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE), Digital Noise Reduction and 24P True Cinema.

The TV's audio features are equally impressive. With support for Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital Pulse and Simulated Surround, your audio will be as high-quality as the HD video. Plus, you can even output audio via the digital coaxial connection to your AV receiver for true surround sound from your home theater speakers. The TV's other connectivity options include multiple HDMI inputs, component, USB 2.0 and more. The TV's USB 2.0 ports work as a media player, so you can enjoy a variety of video, audio and photo files on the big screen.

The R550 Series TV even offers a receiver-less option if you are a DIRECTV customer. It allows you place the DIRECTV Genie Whole-Home HD DVR in any room of your house and stream content directly to the TV without the clutter of connecting a DIRECTV receiver to it. This model also features BRAVIA Sync and an onboard iManual.

Passive 3D Technology
This model uses the same passive 3D technology used in movie theaters. Even the sound profile is enhanced for 3D viewing to provide a more immersive experience. For added convenience, four pairs of 3D glasses are included. The TV supports various 3D formats including Simulated 3D, HDMI Frame Packing, HDMI Side-By-Side, HDMI Over-Under, USB/MHL Side-By-Side and USB/MHL Over-Under.
Full HD 1080p Resolution
With Full HD 1080p resolution, you can take advantage of HD TV broadcasting, HD satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray Disc player or PlayStation3 entertainment system.
Mobile High Definition Link (MHL)
Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can be viewed your TV. Using a Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) cable, you can connect your compatible smartphone to the TV to view what's seen on the smartphone screen on the big screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone. Plus, the MHL connection will charge your smartphone as well.
Miracast Technology
Movies, music and apps from Miracast-enabled mobile devices can be viewed your TV using Miracast screen mirroring technology.
Built-in Wi-Fi
Maximize your entertainment while reducing cable clutter. Wirelessly stream HD entertainment straight from the Internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
Internet TV & Sony Entertainment Network
This model affords access to the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are available at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet and touching the 'SEN' button on the TV remote, you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment and made-for-TV apps like Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and more. Other network features include DLNA content streaming, a built-in web browser (Opera), access to Opera Apps System and TV Tweet (Opera).
Sony's Advanced Noise Reduction Algorithm
With Sony's advanced noise reduction algorithm, fine details and textures appear in whatever you're watching, even in flat areas. This technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth.
Receiver-Less TV for DIRECTV Customers
For DIRECTV customers with a Genie Whole-Home HD DVR, the Sony R550 series allows you to enjoy full DIRECTV service and HD DVR functionality without an additional receiver. Place the Genie Whole-Home HD DVR in any room of the house and enjoy the clean look of your big screen on the wall without the clutter of connecting a DIRECTV receiver to it.
Motionflow XR 240
By smoothing out the picture where the camera can't, Motionflow XR 240 technology helps fast-paced action look natural for a more authentic view of sports and other high-speed action.
USB Media Player
Simply connect your compatible digital camera, USB-enabled MP3 player or USB storage device directly to your HDTV's USB input. It's a fast and easy way to share your photos, videos and music files. Even choose between slideshow, clock and calendar viewing modes.
Sony's Edge LED Backlight Technology
Sony's Edge LED Backlight technology delivers deep contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail. Plus, the LEDs deliver a brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve an ultra-slim TV design.
Digital Noise Reduction
Digital Noise Reduction enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from USB and other PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid.
Onboard Manual
You will never lose your TV manual again. The iManual is available through the menu system on the TV - always there if you need it.

        Comments about Sony 70" KDL-70R550A R550 Series 3D LED Internet TV:

        To gauge the 3D capability, one has to put on a movie like 'Hobbit' that is designed for 3D viewing, and then the effect is just astounding! The simulated 3D is not all that great, but you wouldn't expect it to be all that amazing anyway. Also, the contrast and the picture clarity in true HD broadcast is superb! I wouldn't compare it to Plasma, but then again, you don't even get that 70 inch option with plasma in this price range. Another thing to note is B&H's super fast free delivery service!

        I buying SONY TVS since 80S,coz of their great pic quality & long life …to me always is the BEST brand comes to TVS & Blu-ray players,
        BUT this is LED not LCD..So needs to have lights off around the TV or as low light because the PIC is not VIVID in colors and deep in blks,like in LCD TVS ,is nice TV, but not in pic quality, because of LED television ..Now I know why they soo cheap!

          I purchase it to replace 6 years old SONY 46" in living room. The screen big enough to read subtitle just right distence from sofa. The picture is crystal clear and color just SONY style which we used to. I am looking for 4 HDMI port which is good for plug all input device easier. It's running almost 2 months and have no any flaws.

          Friends called me Mr. Sony! Yes almost everything I own is...made by SONY. Not only it is a good brand name but its price is quite reasonable, especially when it is on sale too.Besides that B&H is also my favorite store too. I buy almost everything from B&H: low price, fast services and very reliable.I called B&H when I found out [@] price is [$] lower, B&H gladly match that price, now that's my kind of store.

          Everything went smoothly from the initial order with B&H, to the informed and scheduled in-home delivery.
          The TV itself is gargantuan.
          I've had it for a couple of weeks now and there are no clouding issues with the panel.
          Since this is not a top level model, there are restrictions on the calibration but not much needed to be changed to get the best out of it.
          Overall very satisfied with B&H and with Sony.
