by adms Great tv but flimsy stand - easily topples over
I received this television as a Christmas gift and when taking it out of the box I immediately noticed the stand and how poorly designed it was. Although sleek, it does not properly support the television. After putting the television on the stand, I noticed how much the tv could sway back and forth. The bar in front is very small and there are only two very small legs on the back. It seems like there should be more support on both the back and front of the stand. I was particularly wary because I have a mischievous cat who loves to knock things down. I thought if I put the television right against the wall, it would be safe but knew that my cat still might try to reach up at the television from the front. I did my best to protect it, not wanting to mount it on my wall as I live in an apartment and am planning on moving soon. Sure enough, this morning he managed to squeeze behind the television and it immediately toppled over. The screen is completely shattered. Of course this is my fault for not taking the proper precautions against my pet but even when I would plug in certain cords to the back of the television I felt the television about to tip over. I don't think my cat would have been able to top over a television with a sturdier base. I did love this television and I have a pretty wonderful cable package that I am eager to get back to watching. I loved the internet features built into the tv and just purchased a PS4 that I would love to be playing right now. I ordered a calibration from Best Buy when I received the television but I thought the picture quality was phenomenal when watching HD shows and playing PS4. Netflix looks great on it as well. I will probably purchase this television again but definitely would recommend that you do the wall mount even if you don't have badly behaved pets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TK7606 So far, so good...
Bought this TV for my parents based on extended Black Friday sale, size and Downtown Toronto Sony Store recommendation.
So far so good. Partially slim and lightweight design.
Great picture quality after applying my post-calibration settings for my 55" W950B to this TV. Acceptable sound quality but speakers could use some more punch.
Decent smart TV function. Getting the TV to recognize the router was however tricky which worked only by Wifi and not by hardwiring the TV to the router via network cable. I am however sure that it is a setting in the router that is preventing the latter from working.

Rated 2 out of 5 by yeelo Note if you Plan to Mount Using VESA Mount
Love the picture quality of this tv, but my major gripe is with the proprietary mounting kit that comes with this tv. Note that if you plan to mount this TV with a standard VESA mount, look elsewhere! Sony includes a proprietary mounting kit which is only good if you want to mount the TV like a picture. However, if you're looking to mount it using a VESA compatible mount, you're forced to buy an additional mounting adapter (product ID: SUWA1), which isn't readily available.
