|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 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 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 really like the guide. It displays 8 channels per page and loads snappily. I've read that Sony's menus aren't meant to be that user friendly but I've had no issues accessing and navigating them.
The stand isn't very well padded at its contact points. I wouldn't like to put it on a soft wood surface as it may scratch.
The remote is more practical looking than an excercise in design, but I like it. Although I do miss a swap function to go back and forth between your current channel and your previously watched channel (they added it on the 2014 Bravia 32" remote - see picture, it's the bottom right button next to PROG, that's labeled Media on the 2013 remote).
I'm disappointed Sony haven't done more to add ITV Player or 4OD to the apps. I've had it a little over a year now, and the 5 On Demand didn't work at first, but does a little now - fast forwarding or rewinding makes the program start again from the beginning which isn't great. You can watch ITV Player on it if you have a PC with Serviio installed and a router, but 4OD is impossible best I can tell, at least without screen mirroring from a device (Tried it about Feb 2015, 4OD have blocked screen mirroring its app to a TV - what lovely people they are - been that way a good while now from what I've read, Apr 2015 they changed their app to "All4" now and still the same problem). IPlayer works really well after it updated nearly a year ago (Update April 2015 - Problems with IPlayer being on pause for more than about ten seconds, it causes an error which means you have to start the program again from the beginning - you can FF back to the correct spot - but it's annoying)
Screen mirrowing from a relative's Galaxy S4 & another's Note 4 works easily and well.
One of the greatest plus points and simultaneously worst points is the stand/mounting bracket. It comes with all you need to mount it on a wall - the stand doubles up as a point of connection between the TV and the bracket that screws into the wall. So you're good to go without needing to buy a seperate VESA bracket or other bracket. The worst part is if you want the extra versatility of tilting and moving that a VESA wall mount brings or already have one, there are no VESA holes in the TV. So you will have to DIY a link between the Sony & VESA bracket.
The rest of the apps are a waste of time, and it lacks 4od and ITV player.
BBC iPlayer and Demand 5 apps crash lots, with no resume of the program you were watching.
If you want this to use as a screen for viewing TV or an Apple TV or Roku it's very good, but is seriously let down by the poor smart services, so don't buy this TV if that is your aim.
After now getting apps like Netflix and BBC iPlayer following a recent software update from Sony, I have now changed my initial 2 star up to a 4 star. I would give it a 5 star if the TV was not sluggish upon initial start up, where nothing seems to want to operate for about the first 30 seconds, whether this is changing TV channel or changing source or accessing the apps.
I've been very impressed so far. The screen is excellent and is great for 1080p gaming or blue ray films. The contrast it also exceptionally good - the blacks are very deep; none of that backlit LCD 'glow' of old.
The internet functionality is great too. It's best to have the TV wired via ethernet if you can - the wifi is a little slow by comparison but still works a treat. The applications are great too. I've used Netflix on it a great deal and the interface is really good. Youtube is also great since you can pair the TV with you laptop or phone and 'throw' videos from these devices to the TV; a great party trick and actually very useful.
The sound is pretty good too - better than many of its competitors although a sound bar or 2.1 system would be helpful to reach a more dynamic range.
Since owning it, Sony has released 2 or 3 updates for its operating system. All have been helpful and glitch free and show that Sony have an eye on continual product improvement rather than just leaving it in its 'as launch' specification.
One point that I'd raise is that the stand that it comes with does not have a tilt or rotate functionality - they are just legs for the TV so you'll need to make sure that the table you sit it on (in my case) is a suitable height for your viewing.
All in all a very good product that I have qualms in recommending.
- Excellent HD picture; SD quality is largely dependent on the source, and can range from very good to poor.
- Good enough motion (much better than my previous generation Sony Bravia XXX3000)
- Surprisingly good quality sound; haven't felt the need to hook it up to my (decent) hi-fi yet; reasonable bass (not boomy).
- Efficient energy usage.
- Wireless works well for youtube etc.
- No glaring weaknesses; I don't consider a lack of 3d a great loss.
- I almost forgot to mention the huge external power supply.
I'm no great expert on the subtleties of TV picture quality - far fussier about audio - but I'm very satisfied with the purchase.
