The editors liked

  • The Sony KDL-W800B series is capable of pleasing shadow detail and decent color performance
  • One of the better black-level performances from a frame-dimming TV as well as a lack of black uniformity issues
  • Very low lag means it's great for gamers
  • A refre
  • Easy-to-change inputs
  • Good detail in dark scenes
  • Motion processing
  • Good built-in speakers
  • Excellent color accurac
  • Subtle picture detai
  • Subtle desig
  • PlayStation Now compatible
  • Full-featured. Good performance. Bright panel. Stylish design.

  • Brilliant image
  • Excellent treatment of standard def content
  • Feature-packed
  • This TV has one of the best pictures of all the high
  • End LED TVs thanks to its Triluminos display.

The editors didn't like

  • Terrible 3D performance -- and I mean it really stinks. Local dimming TVs such as the cheaper Vizio E and M series can beat the Sony for blacks And it's on the pricey side
  • Remote somewhat difficult to use
  • Somewhat difficult to navigate smart interface
  • Somewhat difficult to navigate menus
  • Dimmer than average screen
  • Overall contrast
  • Pricier than some competing set
  • No built-in camera
  • Less-than-stellar black levels. Slightly off color. Expensive considering the picture quality
  • Apparent judder on film content
  • Black levels and uniformity aren't stellar
  • There are not many TV sizes to choose from.

  • Excellent color accurac, Subtle picture detai, Subtle desig, PlayStation Now compatible
  • Pricier than some competing set, No built-in camera
  • With top-shelf picture performance and sound for everything from sci-fi blockbusters to quiet dramas, the Sony 50W800B will please movie fans. Who it's for: Cinephiles who want a reasonably priced TV that will deliver faithful colors, good deta...

  • Abstract:  Once calibrations are made the picture quality on the W800B is very good from both HD and standard definition sources, though not as strong as those top units with a clear coat screen or top 4K TVs. The light-flow through the screen is not quite as pr...

  • This TV has one of the best pictures of all the high, end LED TVs thanks to its Triluminos display.
  • There are not many TV sizes to choose from.
  • Not only does this LED TV feature one of the best displays, it also offers a slew of high-end features....

  • Full-featured. Good performance. Bright panel. Stylish design.
  • Less-than-stellar black levels. Slightly off color. Expensive considering the picture quality
  • The Sony W802A series of LED-lit LCD HDTVs performs well, but you can find other models that offer better performance for the price—or a lower price for similar performance....

  • Bright, brilliant image, Excellent treatment of standard def content, Feature-packed
  • Apparent judder on film content, Black levels and uniformity aren't stellar
  • Sony's W802A proved to be a formidable TV for everyday use – particularly for viewing in daylight – providing a sharp image, a feature packed smart interface, and that telltale Sony appeal, all wrapped in a handsome frame. We enjoyed the TV for sports, ...

  • Android TV, Great design, Good picture quality after you've tweaked settings,
  • Android TV has a few odd quirks, Subpar viewing angles, You'll need to tweak picture settings a bit for the best results,
  • At AUD$1,799, the Sony 50W800C is a compelling midrange TV option. While it's capable of great picture quality, there's a few issues that could be deal breakers. The biggest is the TV's viewing angle; if you were hoping to put the 50W800C in a larger roo...

  • Wellcontrasted picture, Excellent colors, Efficient image processing and motion compensation
  • Very disappointing 3D, Input lag higher than usual for a Sony TV (only concerns gamers), Narrow viewing angles
  • Compared to the 43W755C, the Sony 55W805C brings you active 3D on top. Unfortunately, the 3D picture is very disappointing and the active 3D system doesn't have a decent resolution and there's too much crosstalk. The rest is pretty good, but no better tha...

  • Good out-of-the-box accuracy for colour and greyscale, Excellent video processing, Strong black levels in normal viewing environments, Decent input lag
  • Some clouding and backlight uniformity issues, especially when watching in dim surroundings, Some DSE present, Smart TV is promising, but still a little slow and clunky UI
  • The Sony KDL-W805C is a strong LED LCD 1080p TV from the company and will find itself at home in the average well lit living room with strong black levels, good colours and decent motion. There are issues when viewing the W805C in dim environments which a...
