Made for audio
Hear clear, full-range sound from a compact Bass Reflex speaker inside your TV. There's no distortion or unwanted vibration even when the action gets loud.

Touchpad remote
The One-Flick remote (available separately) will bring complete ease-of-use to the W7 with its responsive touchpad and intuitive interface.

Screen mirroring
Through a simple wireless connection, screen mirroring lets you view your videos, photos, and more on your TV.

Built-in wall mount
The TV's integrated stand doubles as a wall-mounting bracket, so there's no need to go out and buy one. Please note, this TV is not compatible with other, external brackets.

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Please note: models W829 and W815 are the same TV in black and silver respectively.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality service and product Delivery came the following week after ordering online, Chris and Alex delivered within the time frame with plenty of advanced notification from JL. The television looks fantastic, glad I went for the 50" screen. Beautiful picture especially in HD and watching sport is great with the speed of the picture refresh rate. Not really into 3D but the picture is great too, the glasses are light and silent. It is super easy to set up the channels and Internet. There is a time lag when using the remote but as it is internet perfectly acceptable. The stand works perfectly as a wall mount, template supplied, 8xM8 screws required but had them already and put onto our tv backing board on the wall. The sound quality is fine for such a thin tv although I have a Bose sound base I use for a richer quality. Extremely happy with the quality and would highly recommend, makes watching tv even more enjoyable. 23 February 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good picture quality I have only had the tv for one month, the picture quality is very good in HD and the sound quality is above average for this type of tv. However, I have already experienced lots of problems with the wifi disconnecting and then having to spend lots of time trying to reconnect it, this is a major problem when watching Netflix etc. 13 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great TV with excellent picture. Upgraded from a 5 year old Sony to this, what a difference in picture quality. Read many different reviews about this model, was a bit worried about people receiving damaged screens, warped screens, dead pixels etc. But the one I received was spot on. Although it does not have as many smart features as other brands there is enough for me, most I would probably not use. Love the recording feature but wish you could record one channel while watching another. Sound is OK but I run mine through a sound system anyway. Overall very impressed, up to Sony's usual high quality. 13 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase... The design is great, the TV looks like a a high quality piece of kit and the performance doesn't disappoint. The picture is absolutely fantastic, BluRay movies really come to life and my XboxOne games look razor sharp . I was sceptical about the 3D but it is suprisingly impressive, I'd even go so far as to say Avatar looked stunning in 3D. I've not used the TV sound as I'm hooked up to surround sound so I cant comment there sorry. All in though I'm chuffed with this purchase!! :) 10 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sony Bravia We purchased this TV as a replacement to a Panasonic TX-42AS650B TV which had connectivity issues. JL after some inconvenience offered us a full refund. We are very pleased with this TV and it connects seamlessly with our wifi internet enabling us to watch catch up TV such as BBC iPlayer and has no buffering or freezing issues. My only issue with this TV is the supplied wall mounting brackets. When fitted to the wall the poor design of the brackets make the TV sit too far away from the wall making the TV look ugly as the brackets and associated cables can be seen from a side view. Sony are aware of this and supply an adaptor kit to use with a universal wall bracket, but of course this just adds to the expense and inconvenience. 05 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product After researching long and hard I finally took the plunge with this TV. A very good all rounder, great for football,movies and gaming. Sound is great and menus are easy to navigate. Definitely worth the money. 03 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sony Bravia KDL50W8 LED HD 1080p 3D Smart TV, 50" with Freeview/Freesat HD & 2x 3D Glasses Excellent picture quality, superb sound, straightforward set up a great product at a great price 28 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great TV. Great design. First thing first. I've wall mounted it, looked great but I did have to go out and buy screws/bolts for the wall bracket. As they don't supply them. Which was disappointing and frustrating to find while leaving the TV out the box in my living room. I had to read the manual to see the "not supplied". Well any way it's a 8mm diameter screw/bolt and the length depends on your wall. You'll need 8 of them. TV is very light for a 50inch. The mount is very easy to set up. Now that I have it all settled up and working. It's a great TV. I love it. HD shows look fab. Netflix button on the remote which is very convenient. Picture and sound are amazing. Standard definition picture is okay. PS4 picture quality looks breathtaking. Free Sony sound bar and sub which has great sound and punch for the price of the product. Sony products are best in the market. Everyone that's seen the TV has given comments on how beautiful it looks. 20 December 2014
