The picture on this TV is excellent, in initial setup it pulled in 40+ digital channels (I have cable, no set-top box) and the digital channels are so crisp it blew my mind, couldn't believe what I've been missing. I could of cared less that it was 3D but after checking it out its kinda neat. In regular everday programming it gives everything depth, don't expext things to look like there flying at you. If watching a high action movie on DVD the 3D is awesome. Couple of cons is the apps, for you sports fans it does support NFL or NHL apps, but you can easily plug your laptop or smartphone in to run them. Another annoying littlle thing is there is no ASPECT button on remote. To switch between Wide, Normal, Zoom, Cinama you have to go to the menu and pick your way through, but thats just minor. It does come with two remotes, one standard and one mouse pad type, it takes a little getting used to but is nice. Sound is good and if playing music, with some tweaking can make it sound decent. If you Skype the camera is clear w/wide angle camera, if not it flips up, easy on/off Skyping. Its got all the bells and whistles that you would want in a smart TV, I'm happy with it and recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Knuckles Best TV I Have Owned
I have owned a new TV every year for the past 4 years. Sadly they were all Samsung TV's. Every TV before that was a sony. I switched over to samsung because everything you read says Samsung is one of the best or is the best. Well, I have 4 years of experence that says otherwise. 2 of the TV's in that four year went bad within the first year. That being said, I have had the 55W950B for a week now and have been playing with setting every day. This is by far the best TV I have ever owned. Great black levels. Beautiful colors. The Playstation 4 looks sick on this TV as well as blu-ray movies. The TV sound is also great on its own . I purchased the CT770 sound bar with it and makes this a complete package. I am so happy I purchased this TV and will never try another brand. If your looking for the best 2K TV of 2014 Please try this TV. You will not regret it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LouieNYC Awesome Non-4k TV
Awesome TV, picture is extremely vivid, the blacks are rich for a non 4k TV... the sound is the super feature on this TV... rich bass and really loud! have to mention that this TV is not super slim at all, it seems the engineers designed this TV for a stand... it is somewhat heavy,.. and yes even though it's wedged it can be hanged on the wall... it comes with 4 different size spacers... the interface is much better than older models... still not user friendly...this is still Sony achilles heel but its getting better.. I personally don't like the touch pad remote... it was not responding well.. and was all over the place... the other remote was great.. one feature that blew me away was the camera on top... great for Skype...movies are insanely good and sport look fantastic.. Gotta hand it to Sony... when it comes to picture... no one comes close...

Rated 4 out of 5 by ffrog Great picture and colors.
Picture and colors are great.
Sound is OK for such small speakers. I use surround sound for DVDs but for news etc. I just use TV speakers.
Wedge design is not noticeable as some have complained about. Overall the TV is a good looking device.
Support legs are chrome and reflect the TVs picture. They should have used non-reflective legs. This can be solved by covering legs with tape.
With this model after turning off a connected device such as a DVD player you have to physically select the input mode to go back to the TV. With my other Sony (40”) you only have to push one button (channel up or down) to go back to the previous channel. Not a real big deal but consistency would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg60 Great TV
I love my Sony W950B TV. The picture is very sharp and the colors are vivid. The flesh color is very natural and not the overly bright color you see on some newer TV;s. The setup was easy and the smart TV features are easy to you. I would definitely recommend this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike344 Best Non-4K TV for 2014
Excellent color and clarity. Very deep black levels. Excellent integration with DirecTV. Stunning picture quality. Sound quality is very good considering there isn't much room for massive speakers but adding a wireless sub will significantly improve overall sound.
I was initially in the market for a 4K TV but the current price point and lack of content made me upgrade to the best non-4K TV for a very reasonable price. Will likely purchase a 4K set in 2-3 years but for now this is hands down the best TV for the price.
FYI: the panel is IPS - Better viewing angle and deeper black levels than traditional panels.
