Those tv's are going to outlive their owners, so no reason for a poll. Obviously there are the occasional defective ones, but in general, you will not have the tv long enough for the backlight to...

Sony currently has the "secret sauce" when it comes to game mode. It does not look any different than its other modes (cinema, vivid, ect). It just locks certain options out and speeds up the...

Yes it is easily fixable, but still, for those who do not have color calibration tools it is an issue.

This is most likely identical to the w7 series of Europe. Basically a w8 series with no 3d, and lower input lag (around 14ms). To bad Sony missed the mark with good out of the box color tracking. All...

When referring to different models, please don't omit the x or w. The w900a and x900a are very different tv's. ;)

Yes, all other brands suffer from DSE and clouding. It seems especially obvious on the w850a though, and that is most likely due to the fact that the picture quality is so good. With its saturated...

Slapping a band name on something does not make it "good stuff". In my experience, Samsung makes products as cheap and pretty as possible to maximize profit.

The 60" and 70" w850b both uses 120hz Samsung SPVA4 panels with 6-bit + frc. The w850b/w830b are identical as far as performance. If you are referring to the x850b (4k model), they all use IPS panels...

It is a Samsung SPVA4 panel, 6-bit + frc, native 120hz. It is a very low end panel. :( If Sony is charging less than $2k for a 70" tv you can expect them to be cutting corners.

Thanks to Andy Sullivan providing me with the panel model number of his 70w850b, they are Samsung panels, SPVA4 6-bit + FRC (explains the poor color reproduction). Mystery solved.

For a cable box, you want to set it to "native". If this option does not exist, I would choose 720p. Why? Because 1080i is horrible compared to a progressive signal. If you set it to 1080i, your...

You do realize that the current standard (rec709), is no where near "accurate" to real life right? There's a difference between over saturating colors and extending the color gamut.

It seems most of the w850a's bought on the 4th at frys have been returned. If Sony could fix the banding this tv would be best in its class. :(
