Most helpful reviews

James, Bristol Multi-purpose viewer

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Stunning picture, lovely looking television.
Bad points:
Sound syncronisation with picture is very poor indeed. Using a (Sony) soundbar makes this even worse. The inbuilt youview is also painfully slow to use. System often lags and reboots itself. Desperately needs software update from Sony to rectify these issues.

CS, Film and documentary lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Google TV OS is a joy to use compared to LG, Panasonic. 10bit VA panel is stunning for IPS screens with impressive backlighting considering edge-lit. HDR support now which is a bonus post update (although light/nits not really in the league of 2016 HDR models). Input lag low compared to many other brands. Google voice search is great, in fact having Google integrated makes a far more 'Smart TV' than other manufacturers. Slim bezel. Sound is great if not using an AV receiver although as with any large room filling screen a soundbar or AV setup is such an improvement.
Bad points:
YouView disables Satelite input (license restriction). Personally I disable YouView in order to have both Satelite and Terrestrial digital channels. (EPG on both).
