Still waiting for you view firmwear update. I bought this tv in june, a very good picture, but poor sound quality at low volume and after a few weeks a line of pixels changed to permanent green, however sony came out quickly and replaced the tv. A couple of things i would point out – youview should have been available ‘summer 15’ as of october 15 it is not available i spoke with the sony help desk who advised it would be available by the end of the year but could not give a date despite their website still saying summer 15. Also the ability to record onto a usb drive is not yet available this will also be available as a firmwear update by the end of the year. Please note that if you select the ability to use youview you cannot use usb recording its either or which i think will be annoying. Given the delay i do feel sony should extend everyone’s warranty by 6 months as the whole reason i bought the tv was to be able to use youview.
Great sound & picture quality. We’re a month in – delivered faster than expected – and it’s superb. Great sound and picture quality. Some reviews mentioned that it was really slow – i haven’t found it to be at all. Very easy to add apps, very easy to add an hdd to record tv.
Very nice tv – good hd picture. I recently had this tv delivered – not from amazon because i needed it installing – but thought that amazon customers might appreciate some feedback. This is a very smart looking tv with a great hd picture. Sound is very clear and perfectly loud enough. I do not think that the set needs a sound bar. My only niggle is i think the black one 43w755 frames the picture nicely, but it was out of stock when i ordered mine. I am very happy with this tv.

Excellent tv, great sound and picture excellent connectivity, good for mirroring. . Looks beautiful and the picture is fantastic. Picture:the definition is marvellous, very sharp indeed. Sound: i don;t need my surround sound anymore, its amazing full, and plenty of volume. Ease of use: the tv is easy to mount on the stand and the remote is self explanatory. Lots of hdmi inputs so great. Smart: really good apps for amazon prime and netflix, infact the remote has a button that goes straight to netflix. Android: just log in with your google account and off you go, it knows all you preferences no messing,mirroring: works like a dream, easy to link up with my (miracast) htc one m9 and my nexus 7. Did find it couldn’t link to my phone one day but worked ok later- maybe a little hit and miss?overall: i am very pleased with this tv, it is stable, gook looking and quick.
At first i was very cautious about purchasing this android 43’sony w75xc (silver)android tv not only because of its size in my front room but mainly after reading the adverse reports about its reliability. I like android devices as i have several by amazon and some the latest reports seemed to hint that sony had at last cured the faults and indeed the tv was a reliable buy. I have had the tv for a week now and i am amazed at its content. The picture is amazing especially in vivid mode. Standard mode is more realistic,but of course this depends on the viewer. The sound i have through my 3 small speaker’s used on my last sony 32′ tv is very good i found the tv very easy to set up. ‘just follow the instructions on the screen’. The instruction book is of limited use but the additional blue folded leaflet is useful for checking connections sect. The controller is the usual sony style with a dedicated football button.

Misleading description of youview functionality. I bought this tv as i wanted a television with:1) youview – the ability to pause, rewind and also catch up a week’s television2) amazon prime3) plex4) a decent image for a reasonable price and a minimal designthe good news is that the tv achieves items 2, 3 & 4 pretty well. The problems however, pertain to the youview functionality. Prior to buying the set, i was encouraged by the fact there was usb recording. I understood that i could not record youview, but what wasn’t clear is that if you choose to enable the youview functionality of this tv then you essentially wave goodbye to the ability to be able to record anything (on freeview), and also the ability to pause or rewind live tv. This is a fairly major crippling of functionality. So it’s very much an either / or. Either you don’t allow the tv to utilise the 7-day on demand catch-up functionality of youview and maintain the ability to record live tv to an external hdd, or you enable the youview functionality and disable the ability to record anything. The inevitable outcome is that the only workaround is to end up doubling up: i. Having to buy a youview+ box for your 7 day historic catch-up and ability to record / pause / rewind live tv, and then use the sony tv for amazon prime, plex, etc. At some stage some bright spark will think to integrate youview+ technology into the tv. Sony trot out nonsense about licensing issues preventing recording – which is spurious as the hdd you record to on the sony tv is encrypted so can only playback on that tv. So in that regard no different from a youview+ box with its encrypted internal hard drive.
Great tv, shame it doesn’t have a sleep function on the remote. . Very good tv – the android os can be a little slow and unresponsive at times. The reason for only 4 stars is that there is a not a sleep button on the remote control – something i use daily as i have the tv on before falling asleep. This means it has to be accessed through the settings which takes about 30 seconds – this is not a major issue, and may be insignificant to most, but it is not something that is apparent. The tv itself is fantastic and produces high quality images from different sources – i would highly recommend this tv.
