Lindsay, Cornwall Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great picture quality.
3D is great. We purchased some better glasses from Amazon.
No problems, easy to set up,
Bad points:
Without the sound bar, the sound from the TV alone was poor.
With the sound bar we bought a universal mounting bracket and both items are suspended from the ceiling! A fantastic set up.

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Bring the detail of 4K Ultra HD to your home with the Sony X8505 TV. Along with an image four times sharper than Full HD, you can enjoy streaming movies, 3D viewing and connected features like TweetView to keep you up to date.

Experience 4K
With four times more detail than Full HD, 4K gives stunningly natural images, not pixels. Dramatically higher image quality means that you can sit closer to the screen, filling more of your field of view until the screen disappears, and you’re enjoying an at-the-movies experience.

Social viewing
Enhance your viewing experience by seeing tweets about what you’re watching, while sharing the moment with friends and families through Skype. Sony’s unique echo cancelling ensures clear conversations while you’re in front of the screen.

Built-in camera
Built-in Full HD camera features Sony’s ‘Exmor R for TV’ sensor, giving friends and family a clear, crisp view while you chat—even in dim rooms. New echo-cancelling technology ensures remarkably clear audio while watching TV and Skyping.

Football mode
Get the match-day experience. Live Football Mode automatically adjusts sound settings so they’re closer to an authentic stadium experience. The sleek new interface even integrates news and highlights from various sources, including FIFA.

One-Flick control
Control your world of content with BRAVIA’s intuitive interface. Flick through TV channels, videos, photos or even Internet content. Find your favourite content instantly with quick TV start-up and speedy app launch.

Amazing sound
Hear clear, full-range sound that comes from a long duct inside the high-capacity speaker design. Audio frequencies resonate accurately through its extended, pipe-like structure, to deliver pure, solid bass with all your favourite entertainment.
