The LED trend is picking up steam in the television industry and Sony is taking advantage of it with its new KDL52NX800 Bravia 52" set. This is a television set that is very easy to control and access. It is a set that does give off a few light concerns though.

The Bravia Engine 3 processor works in this set like with other sets in Sony's Bravia line. This is a good thing in that it was able to create 1080p images at a refresh rate of 240Hz, a rate that is slightly higher than that of what most other sets on the market have to work with.

The set also featured a wireless online connection that was able to access a Wi-Fi network in very little time. It was incredibly easy to get access to the site's Netflix account and to YouTube pages of all sorts. The 1080p on the set continued to work throughout the entire process.

Meanwhile, the LED backlight on the set was very efficient. It was able to create an even brightness level around the entire set. It also works with a sensor that can automatically adjust the brightness of the screen in accordance to the ambient light in an area. It also works to lower its intensity in certain cases as a means of conserving energy. The set was already good enough but the lighting truly made it more useful.

The menus on the screen were incredibly easy to get along. The menus are clearly designed and easy to handle without having to deal with any concerns surrounding how well a set was working at a time.

There was a concern about the screen though. While the 52" screen is very large and sturdy it has a glossy finish to it. This allowed light to easily reflect off of it. It may be best to use this set in a room that does not deal with too much light or an area that has proper lighting controls in it.

The set is rather expensive when compared to other LED sets in that it is about three thousand dollars in value. The fact that this set is brand new certainly adds to the reasoning as to why the set is as expensive as it is. However, other sets in this size can be in the $2500 level. Still, the LED technology is very convenient and beneficial.
