Sony KDL50W800B 50-Inch 1080p 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV

Sony KDL50W800B 50-Inch 1080p 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV is the recent model 2014 Smart TV.

The Sony KDL-W800B is mid-level LED TV with Sony Entertainment Network, which bring best entertainment to enjoy your favorite TV shows, sports, movies, and online games. The 50-inch size is at a reasonable price near $900 nowadays.

The Sony X800B series was arrived in two screen sizes:

50-Inch, 55-Inch

The key difference between Sony KDL55W800B and KDL50W800B is the screen size.

3D – Active

Sony has come with active 3D on the X800B instead of passive and the active 3D on this screen is sometimes better than the passive (the color and clean edges). No doubt, the company is a leader with active 3D technology. No doubt, the advantage of active 3D is full HD resolution going to each eye, and it looks amazing on the W800B model. Two pairs of 3D glasses are included in the box.


The TV picture is great. One of the most interesting features on Sony TVs for 2014 is Social Viewing; you can access 3D content with Full 1080p HD entertainment, and made-for-TV apps like YouTube, Facebook, Netflix, Pandora, using built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with comfort.
