PROS

  • The KDL-50W800C features Google's Android TV, which comes with fast, accurate voice searching and Google Cast.
  • PlayStation 3 games can be streamed directly to the TV, though you need a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 controller to play them.
  • This is one of the better-looking TVs in its class, thanks to a small bezel and minimalist chrome stand.

CONS

  • Colors look different off-axis, which means you'll need to be directly in front of the KDL-50W800C to see a perfect picture.
  • Android TV is full of Google Play options, so you need to sign in to your Google Play account to access apps, games, and content.
  • The KDL-50W800C screen isn't bright, so it's better in a room that's not full of windows.
The Sony KDL-50W800C 1080p LED HDTV is a good choice for people who want a Sony TV but don't want to pay a premium for 4K resolution. This TV is attractive for its class, with a thin bezel and a minimalist metal stand, and it features great picture quality--provided you're sitting directly in front of it in a dark room. As for connected features, it comes with Google's Android TV built-in, as well as the option to connect to the PlayStation Network and play streaming PlayStation 3 games.

Although this excellent TV has tons of great technology built in, it is not able to eliminate the Soap Opera effect (elimination of too much natural background blur) when de-juddering the picture image.

It can't get bright, so do not buy this TV if you have a lot of windows in your room.
