Consumer review (reevoo.com)

Sony Bravia KDL50W685

 

Amazing picture and smaller than you'd expect from a 50" unit

Not pet or kid friendly - looks like it would break in two if you sneeze too hard!

Sony Bravia KDL50W685

 

The picture has to be seen to be believed. Crystal clear and good for motion. 3D effect is amazing. Sound is deep and clear. Although a 50 inch, it is not heavy to move and it appears well made. Menus easy to use and setup was quick and straight forward.

I can't think of any bad points. Nothing wrong at all.

Sony Bravia KDL50W685

 

Image quality when viewing HD is superb, 3D via a 3D blue ray player is fantastic. Don't believe you can get better for the money. The fact the stand doubles up as a wall bracket is a very nice touch.

No 2D to 3d up scaling, HD free view would be preferred
