great display, all smart features are terrible

Comments about Sony 70" Class 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV:
The actual viewing experience is wonderful and I feel spoiled everyday. The "smart" part of the TV not only adds nothing, it detracts from the experience. The wifi, and networking are buggy, and support has thus far been somewhat poor. The user-interface is probably average for TVs, but when your baseline is a computer, it never feels easy to do anything. Hooking up your own media (movies etc) should be straight-forward, but the ability to look though large folders in a compact list view is very difficult to figure out (I still haven't but assume that I haven't found it yet, rather than the absurd alternative that its not possible). Trying to set up a network drive or media server has been a bust so far. The best compromise I've made so far (and not an option for all) is to completely give up on the "smart" features and buy another computer to plug into the display. With that solution, it turns out that I've paid a lot of money for features that I've given up on and opted for a computer to do them instead. I don't completely blame sony, its hard to compete against a computer interface here, but honestly, I would have been much more happy to buy a "dumb" TV with same display quality and let a computer company worry about the software and the gui.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great picture, Simple set up, Access to internet seamless. This set excels in upgrading B&W movies. It really does a wonderful job upgrading movies from TCM. Makes them look brand new. I don't have a 4K player yet so I can't comment
love watching NCAA basketball games great picture
from Tinley Park, IL 60477, USA
love picture loaded with apps easy setup so happy I got 70 inch
This TV purchase has been nothing short of wonderful. Easy to get set up and the picture is amazing. We've since purchased the Sony 4K/3D amplifier to hook up speakers. Our only complaint is all the remotes we have to deal with-we're not very tech savvy in that regard, so we're constantly juggling remotes. We also have a 3D Sony Blu Ray player hooked up, so dealing with that remote as well.
So much better than other TV's I have owned. Can't wait for 4K programing.
Best picture ever!
from Winter Haven, FL 33880, USA
Received this tv at a greatly reduced price from sony, to replace a tv that took a Lightning hit. even though the damaged tv was no longer under warranty sony made it right. For this reason and the fact that sonys picture quality is superior I will always buy sony.
from Urbandale, IA, USA
I just love this new 70 inch Ultra HD Sony TV. Outstanding picture, set-up is easy, and connection with my old audio system was also simple. A little more money than the Samsung and Sharp versions.......but I am very satisfied with my decision.
from Dayton, OH, USA
Another Samsung or Sony debate. Decision makers were reviews indicating that the upscaling was better and Samsung's support was not all that great. As someone who had the optical block defective TV and the replacement XBR suffer blinking lights of death scenarios, the experiences with the Sony support were like pulling teeth, but in the end were very positive. The reviews are correct, the upscaling is very good and the 4k content is remarkable. Also, this model did not have the Netflix problem that the 65s do. Buying TVs every 3-5 years because of defects sucks.
Great 4k TV.
from Morgan Hill, CA, USA
