Bought this for my study so not the main family tv. It was easy to set up, and the picture is good. I mainly use it to stream movies from the internet and as i have a very fast broadband connection it is fine. I have connected both hdmi and scart devices and they all worked well. The only minor annoyance is that when it boots up it remembers what connection you last used and assumes that. If you want to change to another connection it takes up to 30 seconds before it allows you to change. In this day and age when we are all impatient some finds this irritating.
This tv has really impressed me after using it for around a month. The sound quality is not remotely ‘tinny’ and it provides crisp, clear bass. As can be expected from tv speakers, they are not the best in the world but they are very good. The picture quality is fantastic and my tv arrived without any obvious dead pixels. If you want the android features, this is not the tv for you, but i can’t see the appeal of those anyway. The sony-created os running on here is more than adequate for what i use the tv for. I run all smart features through my games console rather than directly through the tv itself. The smart features can be a bit slow, but this is expected unless you are running a quad-core processor in your tv. Overall, i would highly recommend this tv for anyone that will be using it for games consoles or for hooking up directly to a pc via hdmi.
I downsized from a 40″ samsung to this. The best part is how little input lag this has. I connected my pc and just by moving the mouse pointer around i could tell there was no more input lag than on a pc monitor. Even in game mode with the ps4 (game mode doesn’t turn off all picture processing) there is no noticeable lag and it looks absolutely stunning. The level of detail it brings out compared to my old samsung is incredible. It was a thrill loading up all my games and seeing them as they were meant to appear. The improvement in detail compared to my old samsung is like the difference between 900p and 1080p. Pretty dramatic although it does lead to some shimmering but on balance well worth it.
This is an amazing high quality tv. Its looks stunning in any living room with its sleek design. It has and amazingly easy set up process. The colours are the most accurate on any televison model that i know of.

Before you send yourself mad trying to customise the picture, check that your terrestrial aerial lead is ‘sound’. After three days thinking other reviewers were suffering from blurred vision – because i couldn’t get the ghosting lines out of faces – i happened to put in a new co-axial cable. . Clear enhancement across standard definition channels (when using factory settings + reality option) – and little mermaid on dvd makes a real splash too.
Great tv – seamlessly connects to the wifi so i can access netflix, iplayer and the various other apps that you can save to your app screen. I bought the connecting sound base with mine so i’ve not actually used the volume on the tv at all but they go together peaches and cream.
Great except for the whole motionflow thing. . Firstly, i got this tv for gaming and movies. For those needs, it meets them very nicely from what i’m seeing. I cant really compare it to other tvs since my last one was a goodmans tv that is so old that you can still plug a super nintendo or mega drive into it. Anyhow, my main gripe is the supposed motionflow. Now i am not the most knowledgable person out there when it comes to tvs, however this tv doesn’t seem to use motionflow in the traditional sense. ] a sony community representitive responded to someone elses grievance regarding another tv model and said the following “this model of television has a setting that reduces motion blur, but it is not called “motionflow”, rather it is called “led motion mode”. ” there is a difference between the two. This model doesn’t seem have frame interpolation motion processing, (which addss extra frames into the video to make it look smother and give it to opera effect).
