    The first one had screen uniformity issues. It exhibited some "dirty screen effect", albeit just slightly, during bright scenes. Worse, it had absolutely terrible "clouding" (or whatever it is called when patches of light bleeds through during dark scenes). It wasn't easy returning the first TV, but it was absolutely worth the trouble. The replacement set is much better. Exact same model, same 70-inch size. Better bright scenes, better dark scenes. Much better screen uniformity overall. There is, however, one issue that I'm still slightly concerned about. Both sets exhibited a glitch where I once witnessed the screen display everything in "pink" after turning it on. Like an old black and white TV show, only with predominantly pink shades instead of gray. Turning the TV off and then back on resolved the issue both times. From what I've read, this is most likely caused by an HDMI handshaking issue. So perhaps different cables, or a different cable box, might eliminate the problem. I don't really know. But I do somewhat blame the TV since my previous TV never had this problem. Other stuff... Cable TV at 1080i looks fine for the most part. Some channels are clearer than others. Blame the inconsistent cable signal. With regards to motion both football and basketball games look just fine, in my opinion. But I'm used to a 60hz set and hate the 'soap opera effect' that many 120hz TVs use to smooth motion. So maybe others would disagree. The box the TV comes in claims it can do HDR, but from what I read elsewhere I suspect there's little if any benefit to the HDR option on this TV due to its lack of a wider color gamut and merely average brightness. As for sound quality, the built-in speakers can be used in a pinch as they're not quite as bad as I would've guessed. But they're not good, either. I'd suggest using a decent sound bar. Finally, the TV is a little bit thicker than many of the other sets out there. Not a deal breaker for me, but thought I'd mention it.

    Best affordable 70'

    Posted
    wilburandmegan

    After purchasing a 60 inch Vizio three years ago and being very happy with it, I saw the 70 inch vizio 4k on sale. It looked awesome on line, but when seeing it in person the picture seemed the same as my older 60 inch, just bigger. I then looked at the sony's because they made my first 52 inch projection tv 15 years ago and its still going. The Sony picture quality is much brighter with true blacks and what seems to be a much crisper picture. Unfortunately their higher end 75 inch was more than I wanted to spend, going to the 65 inch didn't excite me either since the screen size increase would not be noticeable. Then I saw the 70 inch e690. Same bright, crisp picture, but not all the add on android stuff. This was no big deal since I already have a nvidia Kody box that streams all kinds of 4k. The 60hz refresh rate scurred me, but after reading about it the other manufactures advertise "effective rate" which means what it looks like, not what it is. The true 120hz is part of what makes the more expensive sony cost more. I will say after watching several movies and nfl opening weekend, my tv is sick and motion blur is non existent. The picture is so crisp and bright, that my 14 yo daughter said this after only seeing the tv for 30 seconds. In a nutshell, the Sony was $300 more, but I know I will be happier for longer and not looking for a new tv in 3 years. The extra cash was well worth it and not much compared other tvs 60 inches plus. Now I need a wall mount for the 60 inch vivio for my bedroom and have a 52 inch projection available, any takers???

    Amazing Television

    So I was looking for a new TV. My 60 inch LG I purchased about 7 years ago died. I previously brought a VIZIO® D-Series™ 65" 64.50" Diag. 2160p 120Hz Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV - D65-E0. Now what amazed me is when I brought my Vizio I thought that picture was awesome but my wife wasn't impressed. I have the Xbox One X and I have a 4K Upscale Bluray and the picture is nice but nothing compared to this Sony. This is the first television I have ever purchased that I turned it on and my wife and looked at one another with our mouths wide open! We sat back and channel surfed and the programming looked like we were in the same room! Then we went to YouTube and found a 8K video and sat in amazement watching it. This is the most awesome television I have ever seen, or brought and I am honestly thinking about selling my Vizio just to buy another one of these to put in my man cave. Sony the one and only? Yes I would have to say this is spot on. Again I am not easily impressed but this is one BAD product and if you can buy one YOU BETTER YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! I end this with the term HOLY COW!!!! #AMAZINGPICTURE!!!

    Best Deal Available for Big HDR (Yes it is HDR) TV

    Posted
    HappyCustomer

    Just bought this Sony TV on sale, and contrary to what the description here at Best Buy states it IS an HDR TV....Go check it out on Sony's website and see for yourself. The picture is outstanding and it has all the apps we need. Netflix, Vudu, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora, etc etc. No motion blur - just watched football on it. 4K movies on Vudu are mind blowing. This TV is waaaay better than a Vizio or LG or Samsung. Trust Sony's processors inside the TV - THAT is what makes the difference. All the panels are basically the same, it is what is inside that makes it awesome, and Sony has always had the best processing chips out of anyone. I know. The only somewhat negative thing about Sony is that they are always priced higher that the competition - but it is true that you get what you pay for, but NOW Sony has made the lower priced 600 series to compete with Vizio and the others...and it blows all of them away. You will NOT regret this purchase. Trust me I know.

    Excellent value and quality

    Purchased on sale for $999 and was somewhat hesitant and expected to get a bargain 4K TV at that price and size. I have always have middle of the road Samsung HDTVs and this is my first 4K purchase. I am very happy with the TV about 2 weeks into owning it. The picture is amazing. I have it hooked up to a 2.1 soundbar so no issues with lack of sound for me, personally I think if you are getting a TV this size then you should invest in some quality audio as well. Smart TV options work well, easy to link Netflix and YouTube accounts with dedicated buttons on the remote. Also nice feature is USB ports, put some movies, songs or pictures on a USB drive or external HD and you have a lot of options. Menus could be somewhat overwhelming to basic users but offer a lot of nice options. If this TV continues to work this well than I feel like I got quite the deal. No dead pixels/lines/etc so far with heavy use first few weeks. Sports look amazing, video games are great and no blurring or issues with refresh rate. Highly recommended!

    Not good for Sony brand

    I bought this TV on Black Friday. However, very disappointed with the product. Though picture quality is not bad (Well it better not be bad for a 4K TV:)) but sound quality is very poor. My living room isn't too big but still have to turn the volume to Max to be able to hear. First I thought it could be a problem with the specific video but then checked it with multiple videos and found the same issue. Same video sounds much better on my years old vizio. Not only sound is poor but also if you increase volume to go beyond 80-85 (which I have to in order to hear) I start hearing the crackling sound. The overall navigation system/remote of the TV is also not very user friendly. it is definitely not worth the price. I am now exploring the possibility of returning and going for a Samsung. I was expecting a better product from Sony :(.

    Bad Quality - LCD screen went out after 2 1/2 yrs

    Posted
    JasD

    I purchased Sony 70" 4K TV from best buy in May 2015 and paid 3K for it at the time. I purchased the Sony as I have had many Sony TV and after 15 years are still running great. This 70 in however after 2 1/2 years got a green vertical line. I had a technician come out and they told me it can't be fixed. It's not any of the boards (t-con, driver, etc). It's the actual LED's on the screen that went out and now causing a green line. I paid extra for Sony brand thinking I'm getting better quality. I have contacted Sony Customer Relations and they have basically told me my warranty was up after a year and they won't do anything about it. I will no longer purchase any Sony products as I am very disappointed in quality of products they are making these days.

    This is actually a follow up to my original review a week ago. I just found some 4K shows in youtube and was mesmerized by the stunning colors and clarity of the picture. If you want to see the real 4K HDR capability of this TV, go to the built in youtube app, choose the 4K category, and select the travels or nature films. The TVs on display in the store is running a USB flash drive inserted in the back, and the file showing is 4K HDR, that is why you don’t see the same picture quality when you take the TV home. Your cable box is not, at this time, giving you shows that were filmed in 4K. Try it and you will have a surreal relaxing experience watching 4K nature films on this 70” Sony.
