- The architecture of the TV is pretty much on par with most of the others in its class. The lining and stand are made of shiny black plastic. The bezel measures 1.25 inches along the top and sides, and 2.25 inches thicker along the bottom, where a set of capacitive touch buttons allows full control of the TV.
- The Sony Bravia KD55XH8196PBU has a feather-light weight. Its light weight is suitable for more versatile mounting options.
- The remote is pleasantly simple
- The picture is good but could be a little sharper.
