Sony W800C TV


The Sony W800C LED TV features Google's Android TV. It has good picture quality in a dark room, and it doesn't reflect a lot of light. However, it can't get very bright, and the colors are different off-axis. The Sony W800C has a good contrast ratio...

Great motion handling. ; Good picture quality in a dark room.

Not very bright. ; Limited viewing angle.

Sony KDL-43W805C review


The 43-inch version of Sony's W80C range offers a superb viewing experience, and an attractive, slimline design. Benefits include low lag times, making it ideal for PS4 gaming, plus Android TV with a wide choice of apps and content available. Having...

You may think that 43 inches is a weird size for a TV, and it is. It may even make you a little nervous. What was Sony thinking? And yet, think rationally about it, and 43 inches is better than 42 inches. It's bigger - about 5% bigger by screen area -...

Sony KDL-50W807C review


The Sony 50W807C is an attractively-styled 50-inch TV with a slim design and a silver finish. It lacks UHD (4K), but makes up for this with top-rate Full HD picture quality. It's good value too, and would be a 5-star product if it wasn't for teething...

The Sony KDL-50W807C is the same as the KDL-50W805C except that it has a silver frame around the screen, instead of a black frame, and it has a 900Hz motion rating vs the 800Hz of the 805C. The silver frame matches the silver stand and is an attractive...

Sony KDL-50W805C review


The Sony KDL-50W805C is a 50-inch TV with superb picture quality that costs around £600. It's not UHD (4K), but that doesn't worry us in the least when the image quality is this compelling. Low input lag makes this a top choice for gamers too. Only the...

We don't often award 5 star ratings to the TVs we review. The Sony 55W805C would have deserved a 5-star rating if it hadn't been for the roll-out problems with Android TV. As it is, it looks like Sony delayed the release of the TV until it met the...

Sony Bravia KDL-55W805C


You might believe that there's no longer room in the marketplace for a premium Full HD TV now that such models have been backed into a corner by the all-conquering juggernaut that is 4K.

Beautiful picture quality ; Exceptionally space-saving design ; Content-rich smart system

Android TV system doesn't impress ; Very average audio ; Not cheap considering it's not 4K

Sony KDL-55W805C review


This Sony set is an elegant, vibrant, Full HD TV with plenty of tricks up its sleeve...

Crisp, detailed and vibrant picture ; Strong, deep blacks ; Good smart features ; Sleek and sturdy build ; Good connectivity and easy to use

Black scenes can swallow finer detail ; Colour balance could be more natural ; Standard def is quite noisy

A vivid picture and decent smart features make this Sony TV worth considering

Sony KDL-65W855C review


If you'd rather go Full HD than 4K, this big-screen Sony is a great buy...

Balanced colours ; Strong contrast ; Sharpness ; Size-to-price ratio

Narrow viewing angles ; Could do with more apps

A strong argument for sticking with Full HD

Sony KDL-55W805C review


Is a premium HD TV still worth buying?

Superlative picture quality ; Space-saving design ; Content-rich smart TV system ; Good auto picture optimisation

Slightly flimsy build quality ; Android TV isn't great ; Not cheap for HD ; Average sonics

So long as you don't see yourself being fussed about 4K for the next few years, the 55W805C is a compelling TV. Its engagingly slim form plays host to a long list of features that includes everything the TV needs to produce one of the finest pictures...

  (Rating Hidden)

When so many 65-inch TVs come with advanced display technologies or 4K ultra HD screens, it's a little hard to get excited about a mid-range Full-HD TV. The Sony KDL-65W855C might surprise you with its impressive sound, but can it really cut it in the...

  (Rating Hidden)

With the Sony KDL-50W805C, you get Google's new smart-TV service, Android TV. It's an improvement on the previous Sony system, but not without flaws. Is the same true of this HD TV's picture quality? And does it sound good? Read on for our Sony...
