Great TV, but....

Birdybluey, Amazon

  • Summary: All good, nice looking slim TV. But the first thing I noticed when opening the box was that the remote was disappointingly black? I kinda thought like a previous Samsung purchase that it would be white, per the TV? Checked with Sony, black is the supplied colour with white TVs. Also, the remote seems an afterthought, a bit cheap quality'wise, not seemingly matching the quality of the TV which is otherwise great.

Sound is surprisingly dreadful

  • Summary: I bought this a few weeks ago and as usual the Amazon service was very good. The offer of a voucher when you subscribe to Lovefilm is highly tempting (and worthwhile), too. In almost every respect this is a wonderful small TV. It looks great in the small alcove where it's housed; the internet connectivity is impressive (a bit slow to navigate maybe), allowing access to BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm etc.

Some challenges

Johannsen "Krister", Amazon

  • Summary: As a tv it works fine, though the set up is not as intuitive as most other brands. Picture and sound are very good and the white case makes it less obtrusive than the usual black one. I could not get this set to connect to my wifi. On auto, it doesnt even find the network, the only wifi product I have to give me this problem. It can find the network on manual and allows me to enter the security code for it, but the asks for another password to be input.

If not 1080, why an HD tuner?

Reynom, Amazon

  • Summary: I see what the previous reveiwer (Ewan) is saying, but the Sony site also indicates that this TV has a Freeview HD tuner (DVB-T2). Why would Sony include an HD tuner without a full 1080 spec? Or, just possibly, has the Sony site got it wrong?

  • Excerpt: Вцелом ничо так телик. Расстраивает только что не всеядный в отношении видео с usb.
  • Pros: Интернет-видео - играет youtube и еще кучу интернет-каналов.
  • Cons: Wi-Fi только x. К моему роутеру подключится не смог. Играет не всякое видео с usb. Приходится конвертировать в XVID. Не хочет играть видео 1280х720 с телефона по wi-fi direct. Интернет-браузер тормозит и пользоваться им с пульта неудобно, поэтому практически невозможно.

  • Excerpt: Телевизор хороший, но не стоит этих денег, можно купить что то более продуманное и логичное без пафоса it is SONY
  • Pros: Красивый, стильный, умный. Есть интересные вещи, типа заархивированная коллекция передач 1 канала: Жестокие игры, Две звезды, спортивные, новостные и т.д., но это все есть и в интернете. Есть встроенный караоки, но он "детский".
  • Cons: Плохо показывает аналоговые каналы, кастрированный инет, плохой угол обзора - находиться выше уровня глаз на 1 метр, и при этом весь экран темный. Не настроить сортировку каналов в аналоге, так как меню затемняет картинку так, что вообще ничего не видно, а не то что бы значок канала! Нелогичное меню, очень неудобный пульт - кнопки прокрутки (вверх, вниз, влево и вправо) находятся в миллиметре от кнопок выхода в меню HOME, RETURN, OPSHION и т.д. и не ошибиться просто н...
