would you guys test input lag on this TV's (W600B,W800B,W850B)? I'm googling it for more than one week already and still couldn't find any useful information.
I actually asked the same question to someone from Cnet. He said they have already tested the W800B and the lag was 23ms.
Sounds like they are actually working on updating there input lag tests with the 2014 models. I do not know if they are using the same method and device from the previous year however.
Hope this helps.
Did you happen to find a solution to fix the stutter? I recently bought the KDL50W800b as well and everything I watch TV, Netflix app, PS4 games all have stutter and the motion settings are not fixing anything.
Thank You for the response. Looks like I am calling Amazon on Monday to send it back for a replacement. If they can't replace it in a timely manner I will just return it and look for something else. Which sucks because this TV has a beautiful picture and the input lag for gaming is great, but the stuttering kills it.
Well, I picked up the 50W800B today. I managed to get it for $850 at Best Buy. I think I got a good deal.
Some things I have noticed however, 1: the active 3D glasses are none rechargeable and have a 100 hour life span supposedly. Which mean you can only expect to be able to watch about 33 movies with them. Making the 3D feature completely and underlying useless to me now. And 2: the UI is horrible. Completely unintuitive. So I doubt I will really be using the Smart features at all now. : /
Now where dose that leave the TV?
I am looking at this TV as simply a great picture set. The blacks do look nice. The TV has a fairly low input lag "Great for gaming" and has a nice native 120hz panel.
Right now I am trying to decide if its worth keeping. I have 14 days to decide. The real problem here is if I don't keep this set I don't really think there is another I would also want in this price range.
I was really close to buying the Samsung Hu8550 "I swore I was done with Samsung but the set looks very nice." I actually almost laughed at the guy when he said the Samsung has a input lag of 1 ms he than redacted and said 6 ms. I find that very hard to believe as-well.
Ultimately, I went with the W800B because of the price and the fact that a few years down the road I may be able to buy a OLED set. No point in spending $2,200 on a TV I might only be able to have to 3-4 years. When OLED gets down to the $2,000 price point I will be buying one regardless.
Has anyone been able to find a good comparison of last year's 32 inch 650a with this year's 40 inch w600b? They are both priced at 499 but can't find a good comparison of panels or subjective view testing.
How did you get the W800B for $850 dollars at Best Buy? What is the story behind that?
Furthermore, I am deciding between the W600B and the W800B and want to mount my TV to the wall. However, I don't have any experience mounting a TV. Can anybody recommend a company for that?
Would you purchase the TV directly from Sony or go to a retailer?
Thanks a lot for your advice...
Hi guys, I know I'm new as I just joined now.. but I have a small question
I've to choose between a 60" W850B, and last year 70R550A...
Both are excellent TV's thought I only saw the 70R550A personally...
I know the W850 is newer and considered to be better even by it's class compared to the R550 series, but the larger size of the R550, + the passive 3D made me wondering... specially the 3D active vs. passive thing
AFAIK, active 3D are good if implemented well, if not then it's a head ache, passive 3D are good, not that bad, and not better than Active 3D but they just work...
the R550 has the passive 3D
the W850b has Active 3D
I only saw few reviews about W850B and some are saying that the 3D is bad, a lot of flickering and ghosting... the problem is I can't see good review for it...
So how do you guys feels about it ( specially owners ), I'm sure that I'll take a visit to the dealer to see it in action but the deal I have now is limited and the 70R550 will soon be replaced by the 70W850B which will be much more expensive...
Picked up the 55W800B today, extremely happy with it so far. I haven't really configured it that much yet. I was watching some hockey, and I ended up liking the picture best by just leaving it on standard, and turning off pretty much every setting.
