Sony BRAVIA KDL-55EX500
Released February, 2010
The Pros:Excellent picture quality once calibrated. Nice menu system and graphic overlays. 4 HDMI inputs - includes 2 on the side.
The Cons:Makes an annoying noise when you turn it on. Reflective bezels. Does not perform well in a bright room- disappointing for an LCD.
The Sony BRAVIA KDL-55EX500 is one of five CCFL backlit LCD HDTVs announced in 2010 as part of the KDL-EX500 Series. Although priced the same as KDL-EX600 models, the KDL-55EX500 and its peers differ in that they utilize Motionflow 120Hz Technology, allowing for smoother transitions and onscreen movement.
