Rated 5 out of 5 by ManInPennsylvania Love this TV!
I bought my daughter a 40" smart Sony TV for college. I liked it so much that I bought this 48" version to replace our living room TV. I love it. The “smart” part gives us built-in Netflix and amazon. No extra boxes are required.
The picture is awesome. It weighs next to nothing. It is amazing how far TVs have come.
I dropped cable TV about two years ago so I use this with over-the-air (OTA) TV (plus streamed TV). This TV has a feature where you push a “guide” button and it actually creates a TV guide-like display where you can see a matrix of all programs for all channels (I get 51 OTA channels) for the next several hours. That is pretty darn amazing. Each channel must transmit that programming information and this TV collects it and displays it. The receiver is also quite sensitive. I get more channels than my old TV.
I thought our old TV was good. I paid an arm and a leg for it in 2006 to be an early adopter of high definition. But this new TV blows it away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Maevrick OK experience
While the picture is great, my overall experience could be best described as OK.
This is simply because 2 months into buying the tv, and after a system update (automatic, I must add), I am unable to use even the basic features such as the Media Player. An error message greets me everytime I turn on the tv now. saying 'Some applications are not available due to internal error. Please refer to the i-Manual'. The trouble is when you refer to i-Manual, it does not tell you anything.
Additionally, opening other apps like Netflix and Youtube is slow. Whereas there are alot of Opera-supported apps available, majority of them are either junk or do not work. Facebook and Twitter integration looks like from the not-so-smartphones of pre-2007 years.
Buy it only if the picture quality is of an interest to you. Other 'frills' are not usable due to their inept design as per the current day and age.
There is a reason why Sony has chosen to use Android TV for all Bravia sets in 2015. And now I am having buyer's remorse to have waited for some time before buying this one, but I wouldnt have known until I had a crystal ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DangerousDan Pull less wattage then my 24" computer monitor
I have electric consumption monitoring system on the house and this new 48" LCD pulls less electricity then my 24" LCD computer monitor not alone the 42" LCD TV that this new one replaced. Dust and heat not nearly as bad as the old one since it uses a small external brick for it's power supply. This new 48" is thin and very light. It has a great image and I am Video Tech. so I should know. Yes it’s no 4K TV but for real world TV receivers at 1080P resolution its quite good enough. The update rate is good enough for most sports and racing. I like my basketball and formula one and both look great on this TV. For high level gamers it might not be enough but for most videos whether it comes from online, PlayStation or from a TV receiver this image and sound is very good at resemble distance from the TV (10 to 12 feet away). For the price you can't beat this TV and being factory Sony product its interfaces and reliability is the best. The 8 year old 42" Sony that I am replacing it with did not fail it went to the bed room because Sony products just keep going!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigcity Outstanding TV
I am so happy I bought the Sony 47" W600B directly from Sony. Zero "buyers remorse"
This Sony TV is truly outstanding. The picture quality and sound are spectacular.
I bought this TV sight unseen, I just knew Sony's reputation for quality and bought it. I highly recommend cutting out the sales person in the big box store- all they push are Samsung and LG and I don't think the sales people are trained all that well. Anyway, the TV arrived in great shape, no marks on the box, it looks like it was flown into Newark Airport and delivered to me by truck. They even put a lot of thought in to the packaging. Set up was simple, and nothing to be afraid of.
I just wanted simplicity, easy to order, easy to setup and a great picture for sports and movies-I got it all with Sony W600B, you will not be disappointed with Sony.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cain Doesn't support wireless controllers
So this looked awesome in that it comes with PlayStation Now in a addition to the apps that come with most smart TV and that PS controller can hook up to it. But come to find out, the controllers have to stay attached to the TV by a USB cord like some 1990's console. And to make it stupider, the ports are on the back.
So now I've got to take back the controller I bought and cancel my subscription to Now. And I might just take the TV back too.
Someone would do better buying a non-smart TV along with "PlayStation TV" which is separate box that does allow wireless controllers and has the other apps (PS Now, Netflix).
As far as the rest of it, it's an alright TV. The menu's kinda clunky and focuses too much on promoting their products I won't use, but it works. If the box didn't make such a big deal about Now, I'd probably give it a higher rating.
