Just put set in Cinema mode + neut color + max out back light and contrast (picture )
+ turn on cine mode auto this takes care of all that for you disables cp. you don't need and gives best picture also .
Make sure any ECO power saving (ECO menu ) auto brightness/back light etc (everything in there ) if present is off .
Thanks mate, so there is no led dynamic control option for this panel? Does it still dim certain dark zones of the screen? just to confirm i like this setting and want it on, thanks.

Thanks, I see even on the sony site with a side by side comparison that sound enhancement is the only extra feature listed. The 800b (which i read in the uk is the 829?) is all around better reviewed and for $500 difference....

"LED Dynamic Control" on Sony TV's refers to control of the set's local dimming, which the W800B doesn't have.

fatuglyguy's right ,No local dimming don't it need on the 8x Sony they have good panels with plenty of contrast and low enough blacks to start .
Sony 8's gets blacker and have more contrast than a lot of sets including some Vizzeos <sic> that do .
FALD or edge frame dimming zones with out enough local dimming zones on a crappy panel is just lipstick on a pig don't believe the hype !
Better panel is always better . Sony does it OK on their XBR FALD sets though but those aren't cheap seats or cheap panels
plenty of active zones also .

UK 829b /815b aka us 850b and 805/815b aka US 800b all use the same AMVA5 active 3D panels

New less expensive 50W700B /55W700B at Best buy leaves 3D out of the mix but might have a similar AMVA 5 or a decent Samsung SPVA-2 2D panel could be a sleeper if 3D ain't no thing they have X-Reality PRO just like the 8's

I need some help buying my new TV

as per what I found here or over internet, the Canadian version is as follow

US 800b --> CA 790b
US 850b --> CA 840b

Is that still true ?

Why there is a difference the price and the spec between the "same" model ?


Future shop:

KDL55W790B - 120hz / Motionflow XR 240 - 1,639.49$
KDL55W800B - 120hz / Motionflow XR 480 - 1,739.49$ **FS exclusive**

KDL60W840B - 120hz / Motionflow XR 240 - 1,939.49$
KDL60W850B - 120hz / Motionflow XR 480 - 2,339.49$ **FS exclusive**


Also, some website says that Motionflow XR 240 = real 60hz and Motionflow XR 480 = real 120hz. Again, is that true ?

I dont want a 60hz tv

Thanks !

Motion flow 240 is *usually * 120Hz panel with single temporal frame interpolation. with the exception of Sony
(true 60Hz) W600B


All W800b and 850b and equivalent active 3D sets and the 9/9.5 sets are true 120Hz panels
480Hz is likewise 120Hz panel and triple temporal frame interpolation
960 Motion flow = quadruple (4) temporal frame interpolation method all above with varying degrees of black light strobing/blinking on some of the above 240Hz sets

(info) https://www.rtings.com/reviews/tv/lc...specifications ( true refresh rates )

(info) https://www-preview.ri.cmu.edu/pub_f...dar_2005_2.pdf (temporal frame interpolation = more advanced than the usual black frame insertion )

(Marketing B.S. ) http://www.bestbuy.com/site/electron...at192700050081

I have a 2013 40" R4 in my B room with XR 120 motion flow it is 60Hz panel in typical Sony (and others ) fashion they don't easily give up the true refresh rates .

KDL60W850B - 120hz / Motionflow XR 480 - 2,339.49$
In US 800B/ 850B is not BB exclusive its avail all over US and $500.00 cheaper at Amazon. only BB exclusive in US is 50W700B and 55W700B for now Costco/Sams club etc. may see Same soon with slightly different model numbers


Wall Mart has some New Sony 40R 350B 60Hz and 120 Hz 40 and 48W580B they look like 2013 R4 models and if using same Samsing SPVA 2D panels as R4 or AUO 2D panels they could be real good 2D sleepers for cheap .

Thanks !
Thank you for all the info !!

One last question, is there a real difference in the image between the w840b and w850b ? Does it worth the 300$ price gap between the 2 model ?

Right now, I'm really thinking to go to the US (I'm 1h15 away from BB Plattsburgh) to go grab the 55w700b with ps4 and playstation bundle(4games free)

Same chassis ,virtually same panel only cabinet,features and sound you should always run it in Cinema mode (max back-light and contrast [picture] + neut color ) with all ECO setting off and only Cine Motion on for best picture /color color pallete anyway . Cinema turns off all xtra cp. features you don't want on away . Ofc. use Game mode for gaming .

55w700b with ps4 and playstation bundle(4games free) might be cool supposed to game good do not know actual panel
or panel refresh rate yet though Sony doesn't give those up . When someone here gets one and hacks into the service menu we can look it up if it is a current known panel or wait for a credible review that verifies refresh rate some do some don't. ...........W800/850B Sony may likely have arguably better panels .

EDIT :OTOH W700B might be real decent Samsung SPVA-2 (2D) or AUO AMVA (2D) aloks like 120 Hz panel and Xr 240 motion flow 120Hz panel they position above 60Hz W600B in market . If 3D is not a thing 700B might be worth looking at besides
8x /8.5x 3D ain't all that anyway .

My 2D 60Hz 2013 Sony 40" R4 with Samsung panel beats 2014 W600 and virtually matches W800b/ W850b AUO panels black and contrast real decent pix . I doubt it leaves much or anything on the table to the Sony 8's other than size.
here is why (see below )

note very slight difference in the Sony 8's panels it's not significant IMO unless your viewing is mostly pitch black rooms even then not a lot . Actually the W800B has an arguably better and very good panel than the 850B.

2013 Sony R450A Black: 0.022 cd/m2 Contrast: 4750 : 1 Samsung SPVA

2014 Sony W600B Black: 0.026 cd/m2 Contrast: 3500 : 1 Samsing SPVA

2014 Sony W800B Black: 0.020 cd/m2 Contrast: 5260 : 1 AUO AMVA5

2014 Sony W850B Black: 0.026 cd/m2 Contrast: 4273 : probably AUO AMVA *panel mfr/type/spec may vary by size over 55"

2014 Sony W950B Black: 0.111 cd/m2 Contrast: 942 : 1 >>>> LGD IPS

Do it!

Really, we all are just wanting to get some more information on the W700B series. It kind of came out of no where and is situated nicely between the W600B and W800B; it appears to be a W800B minus 3D and a different bezel. We need to get some more information from someone that gets one and/or Sony actually puts it on their site.

Arguably the W800B has a better panel than the W850B (not big diff. though) my guess if is the W700B is rear lit it will have a Samsung LCD cell and Foxconn back back light like the W600B's if edge lit could be AUO panel or cell or even a Samsung panel or cell somebody needs to buy one and get the panel no. outta the service menu or take off the back and get the panel sticker no. and then we have to get lucky and see if panelook .com has the panel specs '

Edit comment removed


OTOH 1080p/60 is max allowed on HDMI 1.4 and ATSC so 120Hz panel is repeating every frame anyway so 120Hz ain't that big of a thing if you have a 60Hz panel with a faster hold and sample rate anyway .

Sony isn't going to give up the real refresh rate on the 700B .

EDIT looks like W700B has 120Hz panel and XR 480 motion flow 2D panel.

700B is a bridge product bigger than max 48" W600B + better than a W600B (120Hz panel and XR 480 ) and maybe slips in just below the W800/W850B . 700B is probably rear light Samsung SPVA-2 LCD cell and Foxconn back light (Samsung panel not verified just a guess) if it has a phatt booty ( not necessarily a bad thing )
Edit : 700B looks like it might be the closest thing to a 2D W800B we are going to see maybe it's a a good deal ?


Other than that maybe shopjimmy .com will get some freight damage salvage 700B and post the panel sticker numbers sometimes it doesn't take long .

looking at the panels between 800b and 850b and not liking 850b phatt booty wedge design the 800B is no brainier for me . OTOH the 700B is worth a drive to check out also especially with the PS4 bundle if is a good deal or can save decent bread and doesn't come with girly games or angry 3D flying turds game I'm good with my PS3 though ☺☺☺D is reasonable also

W700B is likely 60Hz panel because they are claiming 120Hz refresh probably 60Hz with frame interpolation or back light scanning either of wich X reality CPU should be able to do . Not as good as 120Hz panel though .

OTOH 1080p/60 is max allowed on HDMI 1.4 and ATSC so 120Hz panel is repeating every frame anyway so 120Hz ain't that big of a thing if you have a panel with a fast hold and sample rate anyway .

Sony isn't going to give up the real refresh rate on the 700B .

W/O 3D and likely having a 60Hz panel 700B actually is exactly a bridge product mostly just bigger than max 48" W600B . IMO 700B is probably rear light Samsung SPVA-2 LCD cell and Foxconn back light like W600B if it has a phatt booty ( not necessarily a bad thing )

I think the ps4 game bundle is for any sony tv. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....&type=category

Pair this next-generation gaming system with a new Sony TV. Buy any Sony TV and a PS4 console below to receive digital versions of Infamous: Second Son, MLB 14: The Show, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack for free.

The thing for me is that I want the w800b but I dont need the 3d. If the w700b is the w800b minus the 3d and real 120hz, I will be all over it

LED Motion Mode

I was playing around with the LED Motion mode on my 48" W590B (same as W600B) last night.

With LED Motion on and with max backlight, it is just slightly dimmer than off with "Min" backlight. So it is pretty dim, but still usable for me at least.

I tested the motion blurring using the excellent Blurbusters tests here: http://www.testufo.com/#test=framerates

The improvement is very noticeable. The "Moving Photo" test in particular is very dramatic. It's the difference between being able to see all the details and a blurry mess.

You can see the difference that LED Motion mode makes on the RTings review: https://www.rtings.com/reviews/tv/lcd-led/sony/w600b
The "Motion Blur" section has a photo with it off, and down below in the Questions setting there is a photo with LED Motion on.

I also saw a nice improvement in games with fast scrolling, such as Sonic and NiGHTS. First person shooters are supposed to be greatly improved, though I haven't tried one yet.

Ultimately I'm really happy with the increased motion clarity from LED Motion mode. I will probably only use it for certain types of games, but for those that benefit, it makes a big difference. As far as I know, no other manufacturer provides a pure strobing backlight mode (without creating fake frames). So even if only 1% of viewers will ever actually use it, I'm very happy that Sony included it (especially on their "budget" models!).

Same here!

The W700B is intriguing for a lot of people due no 3D thus the lower price point. I hope to see some more detail online soon; it appeared on Best Buy's site just a few days ago and there is no information on Sony's site.

just click on the download link for description specific to your set after U input model .
Unless I'm looking in the wrong spot, I've had 2 updates now (got one today) and can't find info on either.

The site you listed only shows me - File Description UPDATE System Software Update Release Date 7/11/2014 Version PKG2.187AAA File Size 201.59 MB

That's the only firmware update listed for the w850b.

Pair this next-generation gaming system with a new Sony TV. Buy any Sony TV and a PS4 console below to receive digital versions of Infamous: Second Son, MLB 14: The Show, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack for free.

The thing for me is that I want the w800b but I dont need the 3d. If the w700b is the w800b minus the 3d and real 120hz, I will be all over it
I dont think the 700B is an 800B less 3D but I think it is a bridge product between 48" W600B and 50- 55 " Sony 8's
'
EDIT xx W600B are 60Hz panel and looks like 50W700B and 55W700B are 120Hz 2D panels having X reality pr 480 . worth a look if it has a decent panel .
it could be AUO AMVA or Samsung SPVA-4 those are decent .

xx W600B are 60Hz panel and likey 50W700B and 55W700B are 60Hz panels having only X reality pro 120 vs X reality pro 240 on the Sony 8's . still worth a look if it has a decent panel that's the most important answered question .
I am 99% certain the W700B series are 120hz panels because they are running Motionflow XR 480, at least per the Best Buy specification (which is all we have right now to go off of).

You might have something there I missed that in the overview but only saw the 120Hz refresh rate listed below in the bullet points of the specs and thought it was the usual 'effective refresh rate' maybe Best Buy is being square with us here that's something new ☺☺ . I agree XR 480 should be 120Hz panel and triple temporal frame interpolation
That would make more sense in a bridge product between the W600B 60Hz sets and the 120Hz Sony 8's
that makes it better than I thought good call

I just purchased a 50'' W700B. Going by all the 800b feature and reviews, I can confirm that the 700b is indeed pretty much an 800b without 3D and a different bezel. The picture is excellent but I did find one dead pixel, now debating weather to return it and hope the next one is better and not worse.

Could be now that we figured out it has a 120Hz panel and reality pro 240 CPU . Is it direct back light (thick ) or thin edge light panel? It would make sense as a bridge product for it to be a real good 2D set. It might be the sweet spot in the Sony stable for folks that don't need 3D ! glad U has one to clue us in bro ! ☺☺

Does sharp make 3D ASV panels I know they make them in 2D ? you sure about that ? 2D Sony used to use them . even the 84" 9x is CMO panel now I think they told Sharp to take a hike in 2014 too many problems and no large 3D maybe ?
Sharp isn't showing any 3D 55 - 70" ASV in prod or discontinued right now same as last year only 2D large ASV panels bro .

Visio is buying Sharp ASV from ~ 60" and up for 2D sets ,3D models would hafta be coming from somewhere else .


The Sony 8's are all active 3D there might be one AUO passive in the mix also /
.
I believe you might be misinformed about the 2014 60" and 70" most of the Sony 8's are AUO AMV5 this year I think the 60 &70 are only exceptions

2014 Sony 70850B is Samsung SPVA-4 120Hz LCD cell with Foxconn backlight bro we verified that here on AVS forum .
owner got it from serv menu .
2014 Sony 60W850B uses this panel , 60W850B/60W855B - ND4Y600LNX0101 (Samsung-SPVA4) - 120Hz
just like above only smaller.
2014 Sony 55W800B uses this one active 3D AUO (T550HVF05-0) - 120Hz , Rest of 8's use AUO AMV5

Can some one tell me what the best setting for gaming would be on a 70w850b? I want to use detail enhancer and live color but not sure how much either of those 2 settings will increase input lag.

Here is a nice rundown of the calibration settings.

Put it in game mode and have a coke detail and color enhancers probably wont hurt anything they are static settings put it in game and leave everything off then bring up .C.E. and D.E. a little and see what happens when in doubt set at 2
you can do the same thing with color and brightness ☺☺

The 700B definitely has a 120Hz panel, the set features Motionflow XR 480. Unfortunatly, it is not direct lit, its a thin edge lit frame. From everything that Ive been able to gather it is identical to the 800B in nearly every way. It just doesn't have the 3D and the frame is silver instead of black.

just got a 50w800b open box for $800. i have a few questions.
After i select a scene(cinema)and adjust picture settings, it will revert back to general default settings. I have tried locking the adjustments. Any ideas?
Also, does anybody else have their calibration settings?
Also, what mount do you guys recommend?

thanks in advance.

also, i should note that i am using the ht-xt1 soudn bar using the hdmi pass through. i do not have hdmi 1.4a cable but using old hdmi cables. would this make a difference?

just had an interesting conversation with sony support. it pretty much says i have no recourse

11:10 PM Connecting...
11:10 PM Connected. A support representative will be with you shortly.
11:23 PM Support session established with Maverick C753.
11:23 PM Maverick C753:
Hi, welcome to Sony chat support. My name is Maverick. Please give me a moment to review your concern.
11:23 PM Customer:
ok
11:29 PM Maverick C753:
I understand that your TV reverts back to default settings even after you set picture settings. Is that correct?
11:30 PM Customer:
yes
11:31 PM Maverick C753:
Please give me a moment while I check the information for you.
11:32 PM Customer:
ok
11:35 PM Maverick C753:
I apologies for delay. I'm searching the solution for you.
11:36 PM Customer:
ok
11:42 PM Maverick C753:
I will provide you with the link that guides you through the steps in resolving the issue.
11:43 PM Maverick C753 has sent a link: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answer...2C66/related/1
11:46 PM Customer:
ok so what is it that i need to do. there are three solutions there
11:48 PM Maverick C753:
As per the first point you can set the Custom settings as per your requirement.
11:49 PM Customer:
yes
11:49 PM Customer:
i am able to do that, but reverts back to default despite the ligting conditions
11:51 PM Maverick C753:
Please give me a moment while I check the information for you.
11:55 PM Maverick C753:
Thank you for your patience. I have checked your concern and this is the only way where you can adjust the picture settings in your model, however it appears the model is having inbuilt feature to get back to the default picture settings which can not be adjusted from the menu options. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you in this regard.
11:56 PM Customer:
whats the solution
11:57 PM Maverick C753:
I do understand and I have reviewed your concern and there is no option to set the custom setting as your default settings from your menu options.
11:59 PM Customer:
so it will continue to revert to default settings?
11:59 PM Maverick C753:
Yes.
12:01 AM Customer:
that seems like it is unacceptable. it appears to be pointless to have any type of customization option if it will just revert back to default.
