Sleek TV, but mounting experience is painful

Andrew Tibbits, Amazon
22 April 2015
  • Summary: I ordered this TV with the Cheetah mount. Turns out the TV is not compatible with most mounts right out of the box. Apparently it can be done with some spacers and some longer bolts. On the upside, the TV's stand doubles as a mount.

OK but nothing special

Ken, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this TV without going to a store to see the picture because I purchased a sony 50 inch bravia model about 7 years ago and it had a wonderful picture. Unfortunately, this new 60 inch model which I thought would have a picture at least as good as my old bravia, is not nearly as good.

Not great for wall mounting

fdep7, Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: I would probably have given the TV a 5/5 if it weren't for the terrible design decisions Sony made regarding the wall mounting design of this TV. The design of the TV prevents you from using any standard wall-mounting kit so you have to use their built-in kit.

Bluray is great, but tv viewing is washed out

B.Smith, Amazon
18 January 2015
  • Summary: Have to agree with other negative reviews. Just got tv and what a dissapointment. Bluray is great, but tv viewing is washed out, blurry, and refresh rate is an issue. Unfortunatley we bought local, so return is going to be a huge hassle! Always loved my sony products such as viaos.

Sony already had better KDL in the past

Oliver Draese, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: The image is OK but the sound is very weak. I decided to buy an additional sound bar for this TV to compensate for this as well. The software tends to crash once in a while, causing a "reboot" of the TV.

Good TV but has slow interactive performance

J. T. Austen, Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: This TV has a great picture and the small speakers sound just fine. There are two things I don't like about this product: 1. The remote control that comes with the TV is able to control my Sony internet enabled Blueray player but has no button to bring up the blueray disc menu.

I'm sorry but we just don't like it

Bob Terwillager "Especial", Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: We bought this as a replacement for a 42" LG that we've had for about 6 years. The Sony is good but there are a few flaws that prevent it from being awesome. As another reviewer mentioned the colors are off. When watching dimly lit scenes, things that are blue show up as purple.

Frustrating Sony KDL-55W802A 55inch HDTV

Harjoon Heeralal, Amazon
26 November 2013
  • Summary: The volume behaves very randomly even whilst watching the same channel. Requires constant changing of the TV and Cable volume controls. Could be quite frustrating changing device. Example from DVD player back to cable and back.
