Sony KDL-46NX720 LED LCD 3D HDTV Review$999.00
We don't usually expect a lot out of TV sets in terms of having a good sound system already inside the set, and the KDL-46NX720 really doesn't do much to make us reconsider our position. The audio quality is fairly bad, and by no means a replacement for a 5.1-channel surround sound system. If audio performance is a big deal to you, our suggestion is to look for another TV set, or for separate sound system altogether.
The menu interface of the KDL-46NX720 is essentially the same as the other internet-enabled TV sets fielded by Sony this year. While some might like the layout and navigation of the litany of options, we found this menu system to be overly-complicated, annoying to navigate, and it downright ruins what tiny sliver of joy you may have left in your viewing experience with this TV.
It's bad enough that there are several settings just buried under an avalanche of unnecessary submenus, but it's even worse that the most commonly-changed settings are harder to find than near-useless online features. We gave credit where credit is due in our scoring, but at this point Sony might want to consider scrapping this menu system altogether in favor of older, simpler ones.
The KDL-46NX720 has two versions of its instruction manual, a print copy and an iManual that allows you to access it from your internet-connected television. The print copy is, for the most part, incomplete at best. We realize that this wasn't intended to be what most users look through, but we also know that not everyone will have their TV connected to the internet all the time, and should that be the case, it's probably better to have a complete manual that you can read instead of being left in the dark.
