LED Display Technology: LED (light-emitting diode) TVs are actually a type of LCD TV. LCD HDTVs use standard compact fluorescent tubes to illuminate the picture. LED HDTVs, on the other hand, replace those fluorescent tubes with backlighting technology. LED TVs might therefore say "LCD display" on the packaging--this is perfectly normal.

A quality TV for everyone

The car’s washed, your daughter’s been chauffeured to the shops and your wife’s upstairs doing, well, whatever they do upstairs. The sitting room is free. Free for you to sit down, put your feet up and enjoy the Man United v Barcelona game in peace on your new W650.

Rooney takes a shot, the football retains its detail as it flies through the air thanks to X-Reality PRO. But now Messi is dribbling up field, the crowd roars, the Bass Reflex Box speaker directing every frequency straight to your seat – it’s like you’re actually in the stadium. The ball is heading goalwards, you are on your feet…It’s over.

It’s all over. They’re back. Your youngest strolls in and takes over the screen using smartphone screen mirroring to look at photos and videos on the TV. Your wife makes her way downstairs and before you know it, everyone’s there. Even your eldest, a Skype video call sees her appear as large as life, smiling at where you once saw the beautiful game unfold.

Bring your picture to life

See each strike at goal, every dribble up field, exactly as it should be – in smooth and sharp detail. X-Reality PRO adds an extra dimension of image clarity to everything you watch. Drawing on a database of information which incorporates thousands of patterns collected from video images all over the world, it analyses and enhances every image – it’s especially good with faces and skin tone as shapes instantly become more defined.

Mirror your smartphone on your TV

Check the scores from other games, watch the highlights, there’s plenty more you can see on the big screen. Screen mirroring* lets you connect your smartphone or tablet wirelessly to your TV – so you can enjoy photos, videos, apps, web pages and games in super-size. Use your smartphone to swipe, enlarge, move and select content, while everyone enjoys the show. Even the sound from your smartphone comes through loud and clear on the TV speakers.

*Screen mirroring is compatible with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast mobile devices

See what’s out there

Is the match over? Finish off the evening with a whole world of content – without even leaving your sofa. Get connected to the Sony Entertainment Network for on-demand movies, catch-up TV and the latest music. There’s more too, with TV SideView, you can use your smartphone or tablet to learn more about the show you’re watching right now, like cast and episode details. Easily browse and discover more content – from related TV shows and Internet videos to apps, websites and recorded shows stored on other devices. Explore content with your smartphone or tablet (Android or iOS) and make TV viewing more social by tweeting about it.

Bring some style to your living room

Before the game, the camera swoops across the stadium – look at the sleek lines and curvature of its modern design. Your TV has the same kind of attention to detail. A slim panel design with smooth surfaces adds a sense of style to any room. You can even use the stand as a wall mount. An Intelligent Core that gently illuminates and changes colour depending on the source of the content you’re watching, whether it’s a TV or a DVD. It’s another striking visual element to enhance your living room.

Let the sound come to you

Hear the roar of the crowd like you’re actually in the stadium. The Bass Reflex Box speaker directs every frequency straight at you. This compact speaker delivers extended low frequencies and clear, sparkling highs. A specially-positioned reflector plate directs sound from the speaker cone straight to the viewer and an acoustic isolation design cuts down on unwanted vibration and resonance.

I don't understand why many stores in the UK don't stock this 50" model, and trying to sell you the more expensive W8 or W9, both are £1000+ and with the useless 3D throw in. I am glad I found this one on Amazon. This is probably the lowest price Sony LED TV in 50" format, that includes X-Reality PRO and 200Hz Motionflow. The picture quality is just as good as it's 42" little cousins.

Bought this to upgrade my 46" Sony LED TV.

Totally blown away by this tv. Only a tiny bit bigger than the 46" as the bezel is so thin. Was worried Amazon only stock this set in silver but shouldn't have been - it totally suits this design.

Really nice that Sony include all the mounts required to table top or wall mount this set.

Typical flawless Sony set up. Was up and running and connected to wifi without even looking at instructions.

The sound is amazing - the best flat panel built in speakers I have experienced yet.

Downsides - none really, 3D is missing but as other reviewers have pointed out this is useless anyway (had it on the 46" and used it errr... all of two or three times). Only 2 HDMIs which is a bit of a shame but being as I can connect the laptop via wifi direct probably not too much of a problem.

I spent weeks deciding whether or not to buy this set, you shouldn't - it's a thing of beauty and you should order it right now.

For the price of this i really didn't expect it to be as good as it is. great picture and great for the ps4. i can also do certain things like go to menu etc on the ps4 using the tv remote. it also changes the picture to whatever i have set it as like brightness etc and then changes back to the tv picture when i watch tv so that is good as i like different settings and its good i don't need to change it everytime.

you tube seems to work well on it aswell, other apps i haven't tried but i also like how i can turn my ps4 on with the remote. also the steel around the tv just makes it look that more qaulity. its also nice and sturdy.

Sony KDL50W656ASU 50-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LED Smart TV with Freeview HD - Silver: Amazing LED from Sony-the best I've had and i've been buying Sony TV's since the early 80's in the days of Triniton-Sony and TV have come a long way. Delivery was fast, professional and secure. On opening the box, removing the foam padding, instructions were clear and very easy to set up. The stand is in classy chrome, sturdy and acts as a wall mount too should you desire. (Additional brackets supplied). Looks very slick once set up for a 50 inch TV. The Sony illuminated light is a nice touch. Wifi was easy to set up, menu's are user friendly and graphics slick. Picture quality amazing, tested HD 1080p and also ran picture tests via Youtube HD content-blew my mind. I fully recommend this TV for anyone looking for a big 50 inch Sony LED. Has just about all a TV needs and is SMART.
Just note that it only has 2 HDMI inputs (did not matter to me as i only use 2 max).
Overall a great TV from Sony.

great big TV was easy to set up connect to Wi-Fi , use amazon prime through it was a bit of a pain too start but great now its all been set up . was that good my mother got me to get her one as well ,
I don't see the need for 3D and 50 inch is big enough and has all the features that I would want on a TV.
only downside it only has 2 HDMIs, find that completely strange as the old Sony it replaced had 4

Overall this is okay, but I am somewhat disappointed. There are some noteworthy deficiencies which I only discovered after purchase. Firstly there is only one USB port. Secondly, when recording, for some reason it is not possible to switch viewing from satellite - aerial...this is disappointing (my brother's old Samsung can even do this). Most annoyingly of all this tv will not play anything from any external hard drive - you can record and watch tv shows using the HDD but for some bizarre reason you cannot play anything that has been recorded externally on the HDD (again my brother's old samsung will do this). If I could go back, I would have opted for another product.

Great TV, would highly recommend, love to watch movies on this as the picture quality is amazing. It looks a fair bit smaller than my previous 50" TV as it doesn't have the big black frame around it like most other TV's have, making this less intrusive on any room. I love it and very happy with my purchase.

I am happy with my new TV, if you are looking for no frills TV the W6 is a good choice.

For:
- good quality picture and build
- very low lag for games (!)
- nice app for your smartphone to complement/replace remote controller

Against:
- just two HDMI inputs
- lack of standarized interface between embedded applications - i.e. the way on screen keyboard is used
