Its optional mechanically rotating stand is a stunning combination of looks and build quality too, and you can even customise the TV's final look thanks to the availability of different body, rear and cloth speaker cover options.
Active vs passive 3D
Its design is big, bold and beautiful, and its build quality is peerless. It's also incredibly well featured on the audio front, sports six HDMI ports and delivers far and away the best sound you'll hear from a flatscreen TV. Its picture quality, too, is outstanding.
Best Smart TV platforms
It's not perfect, though. Its online services are a bit lightweight, you need to be careful with brightness levels to keep dark scenes looking evenly lit, and there's room for improvement with its control system.
Best Blu-ray players
Sony's HX853 series probably offers the closest picture quality match, since it also employs a locally dimmed edge LED array to similarly dynamic effect.
Or if you want a strong-performing TV that combines a stunning but much slimmer design with more advanced smart TV features, Samsung's F8000 series is worth considering.
