Sony KDL-50W805C Smart 3D 50-inch Full HD TV, Does basics well, but still waiting for YouView and USB recording


Hd graphic high quality is the finest i’ve observed on a television. Hd impression top quality is the finest i have noticed on a tv. On the other hand, the entire thing is let down by frequent freezes amongst menu picks, gradual reaction instances in between channel picking out and the only tv capture up app available staying bbc iplayer.

I obtained this 1 this 7 days and quite joyful with my purchase. Explanations for acquiring:overwhelmingly beneficial specialist assessments it has acquired(variety kdl55w805c in google)this is released in 2015, so a person of the latest full hd tv. Android osinitial ideas:quite very good picture excellent. I have not tried any calibration, but in my viewpoint the default settings are fantastic adequate to start with. At initial startup it asked if i want to update which i did and it took a around 30 minutes to update to most current computer software. At the time it is carried out every thing is clean. Wired and wireless connections examined and is effective incredibly speedy. Youtube 4k films runs efficiently(and appears excellent even however this is only 1080p)audio is ordinary. Not an concern for me as sound from any tv is not going to match a good seem bar, so i am going to get a very good sound bar. Quite unstable in the stand, so you will need to tie the tv to the stand(guidelines presented)typical definition films are good more than enough. Base line:much better than any beneath 1500 lbs . 4k tv. Probably the very best non oled full hd tv in the marketplace. Quite superior worth for what it is.

Adore the apps on this tv, the picture quality is excellent far too, easy to use.

Excellent tv – functions with samsung 3d glasses. Really delighted with my order of kdl-43w805c and pleasantly astonished that the samsung ssg-5100gb/xc 3d glasses (which are substantially less expensive than the sony kinds) function with this tv. (note there is no affirmation/sign that the 3d glasses function, but switch them on when 3d information is playing and they function.

Excellent cost on amazon rate day and no cost soundbar much too :-). Just waiting for my absolutely free soundbar to arrive, it can be on its way 🙂 and for anyone informed you cannot get the no cost soundbar on the prime working day deal of £599, you can, the deal was there and amazon ought to be honouring it. That is now two verified purchases who obtained the absolutely free soundbar with the prime working day deal, i feel you just have to ge as a result of to the suitable particular person who is aware that there was a deal on. This tv has a fantastic image, extremely noticeble big difference from my liquid crystal display 42′ from a number of decades back, haven’t tried 3d however, waiting for some glasses. It seems a bit sluggish to reply when scrolling nevertheless the channel guideline. It turns my ps3 on for me when i simply click on the ps3 bit from the house menu 🙂 (when related definitely). I have not been capable to try the youview matter but, i assume that is coming soon.

Acquired on amazon primary day with enormous discounted & also obtained the deal to add the totally free sound bar with any sony tv i am positive some customers will have skipped that provide looking through the reviews that’s long gone up immediately after mine bought on primary day as properly , a good £120 added freebie which is excellent as perfectly, remarkable quality tv, seem is wonderful, picture is so distinct it really is like looking out of a significant window, hooked it up to my skyhd box, ps3 and ps4 the depth when gaming is amazing. The tv is loaded with as well several features to mention. I just do not believe everyone could be unhappy with this purchase.

Beautiful tv the great companion for the ps4. Breathtaking tv which works specially very well with the ps4 but also performs great with lower quality alerts the only gripe i have is no rca output for audio and only the electronic optical selection. Blessed for me my hifi has this solution but it is a factor to imagine about.

    Picture and sound excellent, however. Picture and sound excellent, however, the tv is advertised as coming with “youview” and it has not got it. It is also advertised as being complete with the iplayer, 4od, itvand channel 5 catch up, and it only has the bbc iplayer.

    Sony kdl-50w805c smart 3d tv. I am very impressed with this 50 inch smart tv i registered the tv and logged onto my wifi instantly i can access netflix, amazon prime and now tv through my ps3. I found the set up automatic tuning and quality amazing. You can connect to your phone with a app and watch 3d tv if you have the sony 3d glasses. The picture quality is the best i have seen and the sound quality is fantastic. You will also need a 3d blue ray player to watch 3d is worth adding this into your budget. Amazon prime has so many films to watch and using wifi to stream i now have access to many films and series. From sony a brand you can trust.

    Does basics well, but still waiting for youview and usb recording. Excellent picture quality, as others have commented. Sound is also reasonably good. No problems operationally, except unavailability of some advertised features (see below). Navigation seems fairly quick and intuitive. There is a slight delay of 5 seconds when turning on. Don’t buy this for youview 7-day roll-back service or usb recording. These are not available, 12 october 2015. Bbc iplayer provides 7-day roll-back for bbc channels. But there is no roll-back for itv, channel 4 etc.

    Stunning tv the perfect partner for the ps4. Stunning tv which works especially well with the ps4 but also works fantastic with lower quality signals the only gripe i have is no rca output for audio and only the digital optical option. Lucky for me my hifi has this option but it is a factor to think about.

    Ace picture, ok sound at best, wireless smart incl netflix, amazon and bbc player, easy to set up. The essentials are: ace picture, only just acceptable sound, conveniently smart (wireless) including netflix, amazon, bbciplayer, youtube and various naff apps. Fairly easy to set up the stand, usefully the tv is quite light and if it wasn’t so wide it would be a piece of cake. When you first turn it on, the tv does take ages to come on and initialise before taking you through a reasonably easy to understand series of set up steps. Oh yeh its 3d if anyone cares about that.

      At more expensive tv’s but this one is just good. Looked at more expensive tv’s but this one is just good. Great tv, brings the rugby world cup into the living room and plenty of on line extras to explore.

    This thing is something else,installed very easy,even the hanging on the wall went well,.
    1. TheLazyGrappler
      I picked this tv up in an amazon lightning deal a while back, and i’ve used it daily since. It’s a truly fantastic piece of kit, whether i’m gaming, faffing on the pc, or just using the plethora or smart tv features. I didn’t think a netflix button would improve my life. I haven’t bothered with the 3d yet, but i can say that the pictures quality, vibrance, and blacks are all damn impressive for such a thin screen.

    Sony 43w805 fantastic 800hz tv for the money. Optimum picture settings included. I own last years tv of the year the awesome sony 50w829 so i was very optimistic about buying its newer little brother. Out of the box the tv oozes quality with its robust steal bezel and solid frame and appeared to be very well designed from he outset. I’d seen the tv in store but whilst fixing the thin metal stand to the base i was pleased at how easy the whole thing was put together quickly and easily. Turning the tv on for the first time you are greeted with the usual menus and setup functions to connect to wifi in your home however this tv is different to every other i’ve owned as it has android built into it along with some system storage for apps. The apps system is configured differently to standard android boxes and is hard to configure it the way you want. Every forum or review has highlighted this as an issue and sony need to sort out the app system and settings layout to make it more user friendly. It’s there though and you can sideload apps into it which you can’t find in the play store. But again they are fiddly to find once installed.

    Good quality tv – the updates for recordable tv haven’t. Good quality tv – the updates for recordable tv haven’t landed yet although thats sonys issue opposed to amazon. The remote isn’t brilliant but the sound and picture quality are excellent.

    Purely as a tv for watching tv and playing games via my xbox one this is a fantastic tv. Excellent image quality and it syncs up sound wise with my philips htd3510 home cinema to deliver 5. But the android stuff and the apps need work. If i watch netflix via the tv app i get stereo sound. If i watch via xbox one i get 5. The android components do work quickly though. Miracast doesn’t work with my windows phone despite the tv clearly picking it up.
    1. Lando Calrissian
      Great tv good picture and spec for the money. Some of the apps are pending but expect this will be resolved in a month or two once updates are released. Size is perfect for films and tv. I don’t have an aerial or sat at the minute so watching via internet apps and using chrome cast or kodi app.
      1. MR S McKINSTRY
        Tv has been performing real good. I did panic when the tv wouldn’t download the new system update in the first few days. But it all happened spontaneously on about day 5. The android simplicity has been a find for watching lots of youtube (2y/o peppa pig)purchased 1 month ago in time for rwc2015. Easy set up i also wall mounted this tv and it looks great.
