What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sony XBR55X850C 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV (2015 Model)
  • Sports viewing - I watched a ton of football on this over the weekend and it was without exception, exceptional. No motion blur whatsoever. Of course it's technically a 120hz panel
  • Awesome picture quality. Playing 4K 60 fps videos is treat for the eyes. Colors are breath-taking. Smooth picture.
  • Upscaling to 4K is excellent and justifies buying a 4K TV; HD looks better on this 4k TV than a native HD TV.
  • As a TV, it looks beautiful, excellent picture quality, stunning 4K ultra HD video
  • Picture is nice but has banding issues , back light bleeding (lots of it)
Samsung UN50JU7500FXZA Curved 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV
  • Excellent TV for gaming. I bought this display specifically for playing 4K games on a GTX 1080. I'm using it with a racing setup with Project Cars. Just. Wow. The display is so clean at 4K it looks like a monitor.
  • The 4K resolution adds a lot of smoothness to the picture
  • This thing is amazing. super bright, clear, very nice. the true motion stuff is sort of weird to get used to at first but its cool after a while. the screen is just amazing. i cant explain it.
  • The curved display is icing on the cake when sitting close, as I am.
  • Unfortunately, the screen is highly reflective.
  • The curved screen is very reflective when the TV is turned off and might be a problem if positioned opposite large windows

What customers say about "Video"
Sony XBR55X850C 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV (2015 Model)
  • BEAUTIFUL screen. I mean, glorious on all viewing scenes with deep contrast, inky blacks and brilliant whites.
  • For its price tag it gives a truly breathtaking 4k picture, superb upscaling quality to 1080p source material, great 3D, and can show a really stunning Netflix HD and 4k picture.
  • The Colors are... Incredible and beautiful. That TRILUMINOS display Sony has makes a HUGE difference to the colour quality and not in an 'overly saturated' way, but in a way that makes the colours draw you into the scene, where appropriate.
  • More muted scenes do not get oversaturated and colourful scenes are just a joy to watch with deep colour detail and rich, vibrant (and importantly, faithful) colour reproduction
  • Darker corners about 1-2inches each end despite changing brightness and display settings.
  • This tv has major lag / delays when rendering sports and motion is blurry as well.
Samsung UN50JU7500FXZA Curved 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV
  • Absolutely amazing UHD, rich realistic colors, no motion lag, and surprised to find out it has 3D! Wonderful purchase.
  • We have DishNet and played regular programing and we were impressed with the upscaling. On some programs we had on our DVR like RIO 2 I thought it looked totally like 4k.
  • The upscaling is very good and with so little 4k content available right now that is important.
  • The 3D is pretty dang cool, but I found out right away that I'm going to have to buy a new 3D Blu Ray machine If I want to watch one on anything other than the special 3D channel that's built in.
  • Default settings have extreme motion blur and artifacts
  • Severe wash-out if you're too close

What customers say about "Audio"
Sony XBR55X850C 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV (2015 Model)
  • Sound is fairly good for a TV this thin.
  • As for sound it is not half bad for a "TV" but I suggest a good sound bar.
  • The sound is actually pretty good. Even at pretty high volumes it's distortion free. I'd say you definitely don't "need" to add additional speakers or a soundbar, but obviously they will help.
  • Sound is clear but missing the bass and like all thin TV's needs an external speaker system.
  • Great picture easy to set up and navigate only con is the sound could be better
Samsung UN50JU7500FXZA Curved 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV
  • One of the selling points for me on this TV was the inclusion of some decent woofers (20 W, in addition to the 20 W mid-high range speakers)... not sub-woofers though. So bass handling is better than my previous 2013 6-series LED Samsung TV
  • The sound is pretty clear considering they are box speakers in the television.
  • Sound quality: Amazing! this thing seems to have a subwoofer built in. there are a few modes. one of them is Sports mode which amplifies EVERYTHING and makes the speakers super loud.
  • The bass quality is really good being stock embedded speakers inside a tv. you have access to a graphic equalizer, and you can fully customize everything in the audio. You have Cinema mode too which rocks and sounds really good.
  • The only con I found is the sound so far which I didn't like. It is very low and hard to hear people speak sometimes. So with it I bought a sound bar to compliment this tv.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
Sony XBR55X850C 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV (2015 Model)
  • Android TV is ok. It does the job and the voice control is good
  • The Android OS and built in app is very good and easy to use.
  • The capabilities that I was looking for are fairly standard ones: Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, DLNA support, Google Cast, USB, 4K upscaling, HDMI ARC for the receiver, and an HDMI port for plugging in a laptop. This TV had everything that I needed.
  • The WIFI setup is easy. It supports Bluetooth. You can download apps.
  • Android OS is a pro and a con. Its relatively sluggish and getting to menu options is a bit cumbersome. I could do common tasks like access picture and audio options much quickly on my dumb LG tv.
  • Can't have the TV always start on a specific HDMI port, it starts off on the android screen or where you left off last.
Samsung UN50JU7500FXZA Curved 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV
  • There are really no ports on the tv itself. there's a standard red/white/yellow(right,left, video) video port, and a yybbgg video for older HD devices and a high density port for this external device samsung includes with the tv. this little box has 4 hdmi ports, 2 usb ports and a TOSLINK port
  • It has 4 HDMI, USB, optical audio, and many many other inputs/outputs.
  • Has outstanding media compatibility when playing video files thru the usb port on the tv.
  • HDMI and optical cable plug into a mini box which connects to the tv with one cable. I like this new system and find it helps with cord management.
