The Sony EX520 series LED TV features Full HD 1080p with Edge LED backlight, X-Reality Engine, Internet TV for streaming entertainment, WiFi ready (optional USB adapter sold separately) and Skype ready. Unlike the Sony EX720 series, Sony EX520 series is not 3D TV and the refresh rate is 60Hz.
Sony Internet TV offers one of the best Internet TVs with a total of 40 services, including Netflix, Pandora, Hulu Plus, Amazon VOD, YouTube, Slack, Crackle and blip.tv, etc.

The Sony EX520 series review:
Cnet Asia posted a detailed review on the 40EX520. Since all the EX520 has the same features except the screen size. You can refer this review for all the EX520 series models. Cnet Asia rated it as ” 4/5″. I question this rating since the Cnet USA rated the EX720 series as 3/5. The EX720 series is a higher end model than the EX520 series. But you still get useful information from this review since there is very very few detailed review on this model series. The EX520 series was rated as a “benchmark” in the affordable LED TV with Internet services. The major issue is the film judder for Blu-ray content.
