Netflix is the most important service among the NX's numerous video offerings, and gets a prominent place In the menu system.
We've spent a lot of virtual ink complaining about Sony's game-console-inspired XMB interface when applied to TVs, but we're starting Sony KDL-40NX800 BRAVIA HDTV change our tune as more features are added to these sets, making a more sophisticated navigation system increasingly necessary.

While we'd love to see more customization and less clutter how about the capability to "hide" unwanted interactive services or even entire verticals, such as the TV channels section, which is useless for cable box usersthe interface's snappy navigation--the best we've seen on any TV and reminiscent of the PSmakes up for a lot. Sony KDL-40NX800 BRAVIA HDTV handy Favorites menu lets you manually add services and other items for easier access.
We appreciate that Sony included ways to avoid having to navigate the big XMB, from direct-access remote keys to a Favorites section that remembers oft-accessed inputs you can also manually add items, like Netflix to the context-sensitive Options section with quick access to scene modes, MotionFlow settings, and Netflix options.

It was as if the Sony TV was streaming at a lower bit rate, although we couldn't confirm that since, unlike most Netflix devices, the Sony gives no indication of what streaming quality you can expect. The results were similar when connected via wired and wireless on the same network; however, the LH50 doesn't have wireless, so we only tested its wired connection.
