Great picture, great interface, great build quality. . I spent weeks reading reviews, watching reviews, reading forums, walking in and out of stores to look at models i had seen before finally biting the bullet and buying this. It was the one tv that i kept coming back to, and i am extremely pleased with the decision. Picture quality, the sharpness of the image is great. The colour reproduction is great. The detail in blacks is great. It’s been a massive step up from my old 2010 samsung, which i had previously thought represented a good quality picture. The border is impossibly thin, and the whole thing has a monolithic appearance, the brushed metal frame really gives it a premium look and feel. If you told me this was an apple product, i would believe you. The unit is also incredibly thin.
All round, incredibly good tv. Just bought this tv from argos (£30 more expensive at £679. 99, but i wanted it there and then, so paid the extra)i’ve got to say, it is by far and away the best tv i’ve ever owned. I’ve owned a few large screened full hd tv’s over the last few years, and none of them have come close to thisthe picture quality is incredible, in freeview hd and also in the built in netflix/youtube app (not tried a bluray yet) some of the crispiest hd i’ve seen.I have no idea how it sounds as i use a wireless set of earphones, but from what i have read, it sounds very good. The setup wasn’t as bad as some have suggested, only downside was how long the installation of the initial update took, i wasn’t timing, but by my reckoning it was around 20-25 minutes just for it to install. It sits on the installing screen not really doing anything, so i was starting to wonder if it had crashed, but do not unplug it, its definitely working away in the background, just be patientthe software/ui experience is very pleasent, and also much quicker than tv’s i’ve had in the past. I was really surprised by this, as i had become so used to laggy/slow tv ui’s that i just assumed that’s how they all were. Not this oneno complaints from me about the remote. It is a bit plasticy, but the addition of the dedicated netflix button is genius.

I snapped this up in the lightning deals a few weeks back and now i have my very own 55 inch hd smart tvi’ve got my netflix and amazon prime setup and actually have no use for normal tv i.
Really happy with this tv, easy to setup, installed software updates straight away and i’m blown away by the android os, very slick. Comes pre-installed with netflix, amazon prime tv etc. Picture is great out of the box, though the latitude for customising is huge. Sound is surprisingly good too. The actual tv is stunning as well, as usual sony have produced a very good looking unit.
Sony kdl-55w755c for £579 – very good smart tv. I bought the kdl-55w755c on 2015 boxing day lightening deal, normal price listed then was £749 and i paid £579. (i contemplated buying the 55 inch sony 4k or 3d but decided in the end these were features would be wasted on me. I was always going to buy a sony bravia though. Japanese brands, particularly sony, are in my opinion far superior to other brands where tvs are concerned. My previous main tv was a 50′ lg, which was ok and far cheaper but i had problems with the remote sensor on the actual tv after 2 years. I’ve also got a sharp aquos, panasonic, another lg and another old 55′ bravia which still works pretty well despite its age, its just heavy)anyway the new smart sony bravia just arrived this morning and i have been testing various features and so far i have been very happy. From unboxing to complete set-up (fixing the stand, wi-fi, google, tuning and including downloading new youview features) it probably took about 2 hours.
Sony KDL-50W755C 50 inch Smart Full HD TV – Black : Ok so i noticed after a couple of days the backlight on this tv was pretty bad so i got it replaced however the replacement was significantly worse. Now no edgelit led tv will be perfect unfortunately and it’s something we all have to put up with to an acceptable level but both sets was deemed unacceptable even by sony when looking at the images i sent over. I have now gone for another brand tv but can appreciate that it’s not the model number that is plagued with this issue just bad luck. My first w7 performed brilliantly and i gave it rave reviews across the board as it was undoubtedly the best 1080p set i’ve owned in not just pq but sound, features and the brilliant android operating system. My second set crashed a handful of times i might add but the first didn’t. All i can say now is if you opted for this tv it should perform brilliantly but please check the backlight via running a backlight bleed test via youtube within a dark environment.
