Good points:
Excellent image and 3d is great
Bad points:
We have not been able to access the gadgets such as games Netflix iplayer etc and more importantly we have not been able to find anyone who can help us from Sony as he local shop closed down. Also we don't like the Imanual and would like to have written instructions as well

Jacob, London, UK Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
One of the best picture quality I have ever experienced. The brightness and contrast is just perfect, unlike the 2013 model KDL-55W905A. No color bleeding at all, unlike 55W905A, which seem to bleed a lot. 3D experience is great, even though there is a little bit of cross-talk, which true with all 3D TVs I have seen. In fact, I returned the 55W905A to get this one!
Bad points:
Unable to rename the input sources to friendly names like Samsung TVs. for e.g. cannot rename HDMI1 to Cable. Also there seems to be a software lag before the input click on the remote is registered when you turn the TV on and we can see that the TV just waits before it can do anything. These are minor things though, but a little bit annoying.
