Conclusion: 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, gaming, and most other content.
Pros: Bright, brilliant image, Excellent treatment of standard def content, Feature-packed
Cons: Apparent judder on film content, Black levels and uniformity aren’t stellar
Summary: The Sony W802A LED LCD delivers lots of style and features, but its picture quality is only decent at this price.
Pros: The Sony W802A offers relatively deep black levels and good shadow detail for an LED-based LCD TV; has sleek, minimalist styling and a simple, clear interface; well-rounded feature set includes enhanced mobile connectivity options; introduces very little input lag in Game mode.
Cons: Somewhat expensive; color fidelity, uniformity and picture processing are a mixed bag.
