Pros:
-Awesome Black Levels
-Amazing Picture and Colors (one of the best I’ve seen)
-Extremely thin, and lightweight
-Plenty of adjustable settings/options/features
-Excellent Speakers
-Fast and Smooth Picture/Response
-Plenty of inputs/outputs
-USB 2.0 Movie – Sony’s firmware is able to play files such as vob, or mkv which is a huge plus.
-Plenty of Widgets, DLNA
-Great Price
-Excellent Screen Uniformity (for an LED)
-Gorilla Glass
-Good 3D

Cons:
-Glass slightly reflective
-The edges of the screen are slightly brighter, but hardly that noticeable. It’s by no means acceptable, but it is considered "normal" with Edge-Lit LED LCD TVs.
-3D glasses are not included, and not cheap either.

Review:
What a bang for your buck. For an LED its considerably cheap, and not only that, it also happens to have one of the best LED LCD pictures Ive ever seen on a TV. For example, watching Tron: Legacy Blu-Ray, colours are amazing, picture runs smooth, and everything is so crisp and sharp. However, I highly recommend turning the "motion plus" feature off. Turning this on will give you that "soap opera" effect.

The edge to edge glass is easy to clean, however it is still reflective but a lot better than most glossy HDTVs I've seen. 3D is pretty good too, even better if you’re using Sony’s new TDGBR750 glasses. There can be many issues with LED LCD TVs, but if done right, the picture is amazing, and that's what the NX720 does here. It has all the strengths of LED LCD technology, with very few of its weaknesses.
