Sony KDL-55W802A

 

The Sony W802A series of LED-lit LCD HDTVs performs well, but you can find other models that offer better performance for the price—or a lower price for similar performance.

Full-featured. Good performance. Bright panel. Stylish design

Less-than-stellar black levels. Slightly off color. Expensive considering the picture quality

Sony's W802A series of LED-edge-lit LCD HDTVs has some solid screens. The performance is very good, the design is very good, and the price ($1,599.99 list for the 55-inch 55W802A) is fairly reasonable for a midrange HDTV. However, when you can find an...

Sony Bravia KDL-55W802A Review

 

With a bright, brilliant picture, Sony's W802 is a solid choice for everyday viewing, but its troubles with judder keep us from getting too excited.

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,...

Sony KDL-55W802A

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...

Somewhat expensive; color fidelity, uniformity and picture processing are a mixed bag.

The Sony W802A LED LCD delivers lots of style and features, but its picture quality is only decent at this price.

Sony KDL-55W802A

 

The Sony W802A series of LED-lit LCD HDTVs performs well, but you can find other models that offer better performance for the price—or a lower price for similar performance.

Under normal viewing conditions, the W802 consumes 123 watts with Eco mode turned off and 94 watts with Eco mode set to low; the high Eco mode makes the screen too dark to watch. The screen is a modest power consumer, comparable to the Vizio M551D-A2R,...
