Let me say right off the bat that I'm not some television guru and never proclaimed to be one. I may not understand all the terms and technology that other reviewers put forth in their reviews, but I am an avid television show and movie watcher.
I began my journey of finding a new television to own by reading all the reviews on Amazon for 3D TVs about two months ago. I eliminated the entry level brands because I truly believe you get what you pay for. So I initially decided to go with Samsung and I bought the 7150 from a local store that claimed it was the best television out there on the market for 3D that was within my price range. 26 days into owning it, it went into a boot loop and was completely unusable. I figured I had a lemon and went through the same store who promptly ordered me a new one. When it was finally connected again, just five days passed before it too went into the same boot loop. After much research I discovered that Samsung had a software issue on...
I will save the long winded back story and just layout the pros and cons.
Pros: Black levels are not as good as they were on the W850a but are definitely acceptable (after some tweaking) Colors are rich and pop because of the TRILUMINOS display technology Accurate colors except for green which seems only slightly off IMO Sound is clear and full thanks to wedge shaped design and the added sub-woofer Viewing angle has greatly improved over the 65W850A and the 70W850B (SONY Changed the Panel which was good and bad) PRO Calibration Plenty of HDMI and USB connections in the back Semi-Matte screen No dark edges around the screens borders. No dirty screen effect. Very little banding and whats there is barely noticeable.
Cons: Back light bleed. A lot of it. Forget about having this TV in a dark basement like setting. Watching dark movies was awful and if the movie was letterbox it was worse. Not a fan of the wedge...
I bought this tv as soon as it came out as last year's model (KDL55W900A) was getting great reviews, so I figured I'd pick up the latest and greatest from Sony. The trouble is, they completely switched up the panel for 2014 and unfortunately it took a turn for the worse. The backlight brightness and consequently the black level on this tv are nothing short of disappointing. They are on the same level as my 6 year old XBR4 which is unimpressive. There is also significant clouding of the backlight as well (a common issue for LED/edge light screens) which doesn't help the perception of poor black level performance. The upside to this new panel is that the daylight performance is quite good and the viewing angles seem to be reasonable. If you can get over the black levels this television can be coerced into producing a pretty good looking picture as long as there aren't large areas of black. The colors and sharpness are very very good and are definitely a big improvement over my old XBR...
