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. :(

Can you put it on the no input screen and check for banding? You should be able to see black vertical bands, and it may help to view it off center. I have yet to see a w850a (regardless of build...

Plasma being a self emitting display, power draw in completely dependent on the material being displayed. With that, average power draw will vary from user to user. My point is that for some people,...

It all adds up. Even twice the power consumption is a lot. I am sure most people have their f8500 in torch mode though, considering even then it can not get as bright as an LCD.

These findings came a little too late to have any impact on Sony's 2011 TV range. However, Sony is promising that no 2012 (or subsequent) TVs will be equipped with LCD panels based on different types...

It seems you are a little confused. When it comes to LCD panels, the smaller they are, the better they look. Larger panels reveal more defects, and are usually of lower quality than the smaller...

IPS panels are actually much more expensive than your typical VA panel. They do boast better color accuracy (by a lot usually), as well as much better viewing angles. Contrast ratio's are not all...

The w8xxb uses a premium VA panel, while the x850b uses an IPS panel. It certainly won't come near blacks as deep as that. Expect a contrast ratio of about 1,000:1 although most likely much less.

Ok, I don't know where to begin here. For starters, response time of the panel has nothing to do with refresh rate, or motion resolution (at least not in this day and age). It also has not a single...

I got to see the 55" and 65" x850b in a dark viewing environment yesterday, and I was amazed. I have seen many other 4k tv's (including the x900b and x950b) but the x850b blew me away. The...
