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.

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.

This TV is stunning. For its price, you will really struggle to find a better one in terms of size, image quality and functionality.

The football mode which I thought would just be another gimmick ended up really improving the experience of watching games on TV (yes I bought it for the world cup).

Setting it up is really easy - just connect it to your wifi network wirelessly or via a ethernet cable and off you go in 3-4 simple steps.

The picture quality is great. Colours are vivid, no delays playing video games between sound and picture.

The design is also stunning. One of the slimmest TVs you will find and it looks amazing in our living room without drawing too much attention and making it look like a home cinema room. Fair enough the bottom part at the back is a bit chunkier but the components had to go somewhere.

Now to the negatives:
- The position of the port at the back is extremely odd. Some of the are facing downwards, others to the side so there keeping everything nice and tidy at the back is a struggle. It feels like they just decided to add the ports anywhere without giving it much thought which is not a big deal for me but I'm sure it will annoy people who want to wall mount it.

- When you turn it on, you need to give it a few minutes before being able to change the input source from HDMI to TV for example. This is quite frustrating but you get used to it after a while (still bothers me though sometimes)

- Smart features. The smart menu looks very outdated and is extremely slow. Yes you get plenty off apps for you to select and download but it's not the quickest nor great UI especially when you compare it to LG's amazing WebOS.

- Remote control and lack of smart remote.
