Sony KDL-70W850B

 

The Sony Bravia KDL-W850B series of HDTVs are reasonably priced edge-lit LED screens that, despite some minor issues with peak brightness and off-angle viewing, deliver a sharp 1080p picture with inky blacks and a high contrast ratio.

Beautifully designed. Generous feature set. Dark blacks.

Middling peak brightness. Some backlight bleeding. Color shifting at wide angles.

Conclusion With a list price of just under $1,700, the Sony Bravia KDL-60W850B is a compelling deal considering its size, overall performance, and wealth of features. Its low black level helps provide rich shadow detail, and both its 2D and 3D imagery...

Sony KDL-W850B series: Big TV with a picture-quality (w)edge

 

The wedge-shaped design of the Sony KDL-W850B makes for a unique look, and in addition to a good picture helps justify a relatively high price.

The Sony KDL-W850B evinced very good picture quality with deep black levels, relatively accurate color, solid video processing, and one of the best bright-room images in the business. Unusual styling with wedge-shaped design; well-rounded feature set...

Expensive; Smart TV interface is annoyingly Sony-centric and at times overwhelming; poor 3D picture quality.

Sony's wedge-shaped KDL-W850B TV offers better picture quality, albeit for a higher price, than many big-screen LCDs.

Sony KDL-70W850B

 

The W850B, available in 60 and 70 inches, is the least-expensive of those 2014 premium models, and the cheapest to incorporate the company's new "iconic wedge" design. But, true to Sony's heritage and the words of its reps, this TV is still pretty...

Sony KDL-W850B series review

 

Sony recently underwent a(nother) major restructuring, spinning its TV business off into a wholly owned subsidiary. The impact of the move, we were told in a recent meeting with Sony's reps where we got a thorough introduction to the KDL-W850B series...

Sony KDL-70W850B Review – 70-inch LED HDTV

 

The KDL-70W850B does impress with an excellent picture quality. However compared to the W950B series, it is a little low on color richness and contrast. This shouldn't be a trouble with the X-tended Dynamic Range and Triluminous Display at your side....
