I have been wanting a Sony TV for a VERY long time, I can't believe I finally purchased this model. Fairly easy setup. Excellent picture! Wonderful 3D quality! I had to purchase a 3rd pair of 3D glasses and the TDG-BT500A was very easy to pair.
Great refresh rate. Motionflow works great on movies (both Blu-Ray and DVD) and my games. I got to get use to it on 3D, though. My brain can't seem to process all the information of smooth flowing 3D cinema. LOL!
Trying the Playstation Now is great! It was even easy to pair my Dualshock 3 controller. Downsides are that it stays on when I stop playing Playstation Now and that I have to pair it to my PS3 when I need it for the console.
It is pretty cool that I can control my PS3 XMB using the TV remote. Downside of that is you need to make sure the TV can sense the remote so it can send the signal via HDMI. It is understandable, however.
Wonderful idea that the stand can convert to a wall mount with included hardware setup.
Coming from a 42" other brand, I am so grateful I purchased this TV.

I recently purchased the KDL-50W800B after doing weeks worth of research on a new TV. There are better TV's out there, but they are literally double the price. This TV has an exceptional picture in bright rooms as well as dark rooms, has a simple to use Smart TV interface, and is razor thin. In my opinion the only features that are better on a more expensive TV are the speakers and 3D performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Matt065 GREAT PICTURE, AWFUL APPS
I purchased this TV as I work at a major retailer that sells these and I absolutely loved the picture. I have yet to be let down by the picture of this TV, but I have been let down by the lack of usability of the Smart TV aspect of it. It seems as though Sony has kept every video service except for its own Video Unlimited out of the picture. This TV replaced a smaller Samsung Smart TV and I had already purchased several movies on VUDU and have many linked to my ultraviolet account. This TV offers no way to watch those movies as it does not offer VUDU OR Cinema Now as apps, and to my knowledge no other way to access your ultraviolet movies.
Until this is changed I refuse to purchase a single thing through the Sony Unlimited applications as I will not allow any company to dictate who I may purchase from. I almost entertained the thought of purchasing the Sony Internet TV with Google but then realized that for the price I paid my TV should be able to do this.
Again, GREAT PICTURE, and I recommend it for that when I have customers looking for a great quality TV, but if someone comes in looking for a TV that has a lot of Smart Apps, I immediately put Sony on the chopping block, and I will have to continue to do so until this is changed.
Come on Sony, the product is great, give your customers what they want!
