2011 Sony Models
Sony 55" KDL55NX720
The 55 inch KDL55NX720 also has Sony's Gorilla Glass in its outer LCD panel. While not the top end Sony model it does have 480Hz refresh rate. We did note a little blurring from this model in fast motion scenes and some jerky judder motion artifacts. However, it is a good value all the way around.
The new EX720 series is a replacement for the EX710 series with a new 1080p, LED edge lit panel and expanded internet features, it is available in 4 sizes from 55" down to 32". See the full review and video review of the EX720 Series
