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.

This is a review of the 50 inch version of this model the awesome 50w829!

Out of the box the picture is excellent even using the standard settings but they do need tweaking (see my settings below). I believe that sony has deliberately tried to get the picture nigh on perfect with little adjustment on their factory pre sets especially on cinema 1 and 2 which is aimed slightly more at enthusiasts Even if you don't touch the settings you will be more than happy with the colours this tv pumps out. Plus the big advantage with this tv is that it's 50 inch and 800hz meaning you have no motion judder or blurring whatsoever. I've had the tv for around 8 weeks now and I've not seen any motion blur on any image yet.

*Edit after 5 months of owning this tv I'm over the moon with the picture?? it's fantastic if you use my settings...colours are lovely and clear and I haven't seen any motion blur at any time since I nought the tv...plus for gaming it's one of the best you can get! Very very happy! Especially with a yamaha 401 soundbar.....perfect!

Sound is also good with some tinkering and if you use both my tv and audio settings below you won't go wrong.... I bought a soundbar to go with it but that's just personal choice.

The apps system is basic but good as the tv has a quad core processor but if you are buying this tv you are buying it not only for the sony name but the picture quality it produces. The panel is the thinnest I've seen along with the bezel which is unbelievably thin.....there is no edge bleed on mine at all and us solidly built..no sign of where the light is emitted.

The rear of the panel is contoured so that the speakers are larger thus giving you better sound.

Verified Purchase
After reading a lot of reviews and watching video reviews I decided to purchase this TV to replace an older Samsung LCD non smart TV.

In my opinion this TV is awesome and what a great price from Amazon (about £200 cheaper than a local shop).

I think the picture quality is great, very clear and great for watching anything from kids TV to movies (there is a lot of control over the picture settings in the menus) When I first opened the box and took out the TV I wasn't sure as it didn't look much bigger than my old 42" TV, but when it was switched on... wow! There is so little around the screen (compared to my old TV) and the picture looked massive.

The smart features seem good. I have it streaming movies from my network storage device, the TV controls can control my PlayStation 4, so if you wanted to say watch a blue ray or DVD on PS4 you can use the TV control rather than going for the PS4 controller. You can record programs from the FreeView tuner to a portable hard disk. I can't say how well this works as I use Sky +.

One small drawback I found was the sound, not the quality but seemed to be loud then quiet in the same program etc. But after a bit of option changing I think I have got this better now.

I haven't had a TV with 3D and even though this one is active 3D (with the glassed that needs batteries) it was very easy to sync them with the TV and I was surprised with the 3D as I didn't think I would use it, but after watching a couple of movies in 3D I really got into it. I can't say how good it is compared with others as this is the only TV I have seem with 3D.

Over all, I am very impressed with this TV and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new TV even though it is big and looks impressive when on it doesn't look too big in a smaller room when it is turned off. (maybe invest in a sound bar etc for a better setup).

Hi All

Bought this t.v on wed 18/06/14, I have been looking for a t.v with 3d feature for about a year now, I seen this t.v in curry's. I liked the look of it. Size was just right. I read loads of reviews on this t.v. So thought i would take the plunge. On my way to buy this t.v, I had to pass martin dawe's . So thought i would have, 1 last look, at other t.v's. Just in case. I looked around ,then i saw this t.v,in their store.I listened to it ,Watched 3d on it. The price for this t.v was £839.00. So i said to the sales man "this t.v is in curry's for £799.00" he said "wait a minute" He came back and said "we will match the price and. GIVE YOU A 5 YEAR WARRANTY ON THE T.V".
I still went to curry,s as i was taking back a broken tablet. While i was there, i asked the sales assistant what warranty was on the t. v he said " 12 months". i asked how much was a 5 year warranty he said £250.00.So i went back to martin dawe,s and bought the t.v. I paid £799.00 with a 5 year warranty. SAVE MORE MONEY KEEP READING .I have Been watching the t.v for 5 days now.I can not fault it we are big film watchers ,the 3d it awesome ,the colours are fantastic ,and the depth brilliant, watching this TV in 3d is like being in the pictures.The only problem with the t.v is that the sound is very tinny and hollow . I GOT ALSO A FREE SONY SOUND BAR WITH THE T.V. But i will be selling it as i have a good Sony surround sound system, with a blue ray player. When its all connected together the picture and sounds are awesome, like i said its like being in the pictures.I watched Tarzan with the kids.Their are some fast moving scenes when he swings from vines.This t.v did not blur out in any way, OH I FORGOT TO MENTION HOW TO SAVE EVEN MORE MONEY. This t.
