$430 off on the Sony KDL70R520A 70-Inch 1080p 120Hz Internet LED TV

70 inch Sony KDL70R520A

October 27, 2013

in 70 - 79 LED TV sets

This is another 70″ HDTV that made the TOP 3 list. You will notice that the Sony KDL70R520A is not Sony’s TOP-end LED TV even though we listed it on the top 3. Newer models like the Sony 850A series  and Sony 900A series do exist, but they’re still too new to  jump into conclusions or they have too many negative reviews e.g. reviews are not very good for the Sony XBR-65X900A 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D LED UHDTV. In short, we recommend either the Sony KDL70R520A which is 2D or Sony KDL70R550A which is 3D.

Also don’t forget to read about Sony’s “TRILUMINOS Display Technology“. Currently, the only models we can recommend with this technology are the 65″ Sony KDL65W850A or the 55″ Sony KDL55W900A which is an absolutely Brilliant LED TV.

Is this the BEST 70″ LED TV? Yes it makes our list of TOP 3, together with this 70″ Sharp and this 75″ Samsung.
Is this HDTV recommended or NOT? Yes recommended, it has got very good REVIEWS from actual users.
