Holland isn't far from the UK/rest of Europe, so Philips was always big here in the UK ever since the 1950s. They had factories here too until the 1990s. They were a massive company, made everything...

You say "dreadful IPS panels" but IPS has its uses too. In bright rooms and family situations, it's ideal. All PRO LCD monitors for video broadcast use IPS panels. They also have the same contrast...

MPEG Noise Reduction and Noise Reduction settings in Sony's menus are extremely good and almost at a pro level. They really detect "noise" very well compared to the competition which often over...

I've checked the pics and specs for the US version of the W600B and can see nothing to suggest it's edge lit. Looks like an exact copy of the W605 which is backlit.

Yes, like I said, the W600B is...

R4 series (and all low end TVs by all makes) do not use custom design processors or complicated backlight modules. Just off the shelf chips, usually MediaTek SOC designs. Sony's processors are only...

Well it's good if you want a low-mid range TV that is good for the money. If you could fit a 50", my inclination would be to get the W800B instead though. If you only wanted the smaller size of the...

Hi. I'm not sure where you got that contrast ratio info from, but it's wrong. The static c/r would be something more like 3000:1 if that and at a very low backlight setting. 5000:1 is only achievable...

With all due respect, this is the dumbest idea I've seen since those "make your screen larger" magnifying sheets they used to sell to people to put in front of their CRT TVs!

Why not just buy a...

W600 is backlit without local dimming (not edge lit like you say). Like the basic Samsung sets with the prefab LED lights behind the panel. Low end TVs by Sony (R4), Samsung, LG, Philips, Tosh all...

Hi, it's not actually an AUO panel in the 60" but a Samsung SPVA+PSA one.
AUO AMVA5 (AMVA+PSA) panels are only in the W800b in 42", 50", 55" sizes.
