Sony Bravia KDL-50W829B review - now £739 with free soundbar

expertreviews.co.uk
3 November 2014
  • Excerpt: The Sony W829 is one of the first 2014 TVs from Sony, reviewed here with a 50in screen size. It may not be the flagship model, but it has every feature we've come to expect from one, including a revised SEN smart TV interface and an incredibly minimal design that puts other TVs to shame. When we originally looked at it, the W829 cost £1,000, but because Sony was one of the first out the gate for 2014, you can now pick one up for significantly less.

  • Conclusion: Overall, the KDL-55W955 can be considered an accomplished AV performer, yet with a somewhat curmudgeonly personality. Hopefully Sony will address the unreliability of its media server software – it fails too frequently to be forgivable – but other aspects of its connectability can’t be changed.

Sony KDL-55W955 LED Smart TV review

Pocket Lint
1 May 2014
  • Conclusion: The Sony W95 is a convincing advert for Sony's unconventional wedge design. The look is not only fresh but technically innovative, specifically when it comes to audio performance where the W95 forcefully out-shouts rival large screens. The W95 is also a fine picture performer, with excellent colour reproduction, zingy contrast and superior motion handling.
  • Pros: Sony’s innovative wedge design reaps big rewards when it comes to audio performance, motion handling and colour fidelity are top notch, a raft of Smart connectivity options ensure you’ll always have something to watch
  • Cons: Multimedia playback is disappointingly flaky (particularly via network NAS), Smart proposition lacks ITV Player and 4OD, Social View and Skype implementations not entirely convincing, images unable to deliver deepest black levels

  • Excerpt: After blowing our socks off with its 2014 TV debut, the 50W829 , I'm salivating at the prospect of wrapping my eyeballs around Sony's flagship 55-inch HD TV for 2014, the KDL-55W955.

Sony KDL-50W829B review

Stuff.tv
21 March 2014
  • Summary: A 50in, edge-lit LED LCD TV with smart features aplenty for under a grand? Come on, Sony, you're pulling our leg. Only Sony's not doing anything of the sort, because the KDL-50W829B - catchy name, guys, we love it - is just that set. Given that it launches at £900 and will most likely see price drops over the next few months, we could soon be looking at a lot of TV for really not that much money. Well, not that much in the world of 50in TVs at any rate.
  • Pros: Superb picture, Well-stocked smart TV portal, Lovely looks
  • Cons: Whites could be punchier, Sound merely decent, No ITV Player or 4oD
