Consumer review (very.co.uk)

It's a Sony!

 

Good all round TV...only comment is that it doesn't seem to upscale very well. Would have been more convenient having an HDMI out too for sound/display.

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Great TV, issues though.

 

The TV is brilliant when working with HD programs or in conjunction with a PS4, colour is vibrant and not motion blur when playing games. Biggest downside is the smart aspect, YouTube app works but no picture at all, almost like digital interference...

Good value for a well-featured smart tv

 

Picture quality good but switching between channels slow. Use connection to my hifi to improve sound quality substantially. Saisfied I made a good choice for my needs.
