Nice deal, but I'd rather invest into an LED as LCD is going out of style -- probably won't be worth much soon.

Nice deal.

$898 is acceptable. Nice price drop!

Good deal on a large screen, brand name TV.

Amazon price...$1,199.00 + $79.86 shipping

WalMart price on a Refurbished Sony KDL-55BX520 55" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV ... $699.98

Bought for my 55" Sony Bravia LED one year ago. Love it.

LED and LCD is the same technology just different light bulbs behind the screen. Looks like a good deal to me.

yeah, i think this LED thing confuses some folks. its just about how its backlit. yes, LED is a bit more efficient, and maybe a bit better (depending on configuration) at even lighting, but thats about it. and even those things vary from one set to the next.

its noted same deal in this topic:

Indeed. To go further, all "LED" TVs (for the home, not the stadium) are just LEDs lighting up LCD panels vs older-school lighting techniques.

No smart TV ? That kills the deal.

"LED" has become a marketing term. It refers to how the screen is backlit. Older models used CCFL which is less efficient, more power hungry. LED is more efficient, but also more expensive. I have several of both and while the LED backlit models are definitely superior I would not pay a large premium for it.

Smart tv is no where near as exciting as compared to the cost. Any cheap blu ray player with wifi, will do anything a smartv will do. I would take the huge savings, and have a dumb tv, with a smart wifi bluray.

How about a Target clearance deal on a Vizio 55" Smart TV for $773 ??

Or a cheap computer. The advantage to the computer is also the upgradeability. My computer can play a new codec as soon as I download it. How long do you think it takes Sony/Acer/LG/Panasonic/etc. to add support for a new codex?
