Rated 4 out of 5
by Sixfortyfive The ideal gaming TV
I waited more than a decade to purchase my first HDTV for my gaming setup, and the wait was worth it. I've shied away from flatscreen TVs for the longest time due to input lag, but the recent Sony Bravias have garnered a reputation for industry-leading responsiveness, and the W950B is no exception. Measurements that I've taken personally peg it at less than 1 frame behind a CRT in game mode and within a few milliseconds of tournament-standard monitors, which should be enough to satisfy even the pickiest twitch gamer.
I only wish I could have found a more budget-minded set with the same size and responsiveness. I don't particularly care about 3D or Smart TV features, so I would have sprung on a feature-sparse set with the same performance had the option been available, and I know a few gaming-minded consumers in the same boat that may not be as willing to pay for a premium set as I was. Something I hope Sony thinks about in the future.

I bought this TV because I didn't want to fork out the money for 4k, but I wanted a nice 1080p that would last a long time without me wishing I spent more.
Pros: Ridiculously perfect viewing from literally any angle, 0 input lag (for gamers), great picture quality, and the sound is AMAZING for not having an external sound system or bar. Especially on Game and Cinema mode.
Cons: Interface for the TV guide is a little sluggish and not super friendly, the TV screen is pretty glossy, so be careful where you place it, and the smart remote isn't all that special...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wilgus1 As advertised
If you are on the cusp of buying this TV, go ahead. It performs well, and has very agreeable wifi setup and app interface. It is pricey. It's kind of like buying a high grade diamond ring ... many will not be able to perceive its differentiating brilliance but you can and that's all that matters. I resisted the 4K hype as I believe 4K adds an experience imperceptable at normal viewing distances.

This is the Greatest TV - It is picture perfect and is has great sound. There is a sound adjustment so you can make voices come to the forefront which really helps when the background music is so loud you can't hear what is being said. Very helpful - love this TV, best purchase ever!!

I bought this TV for gaming, due to the low input lag, and it hasn't disappointed. I do watch movies and tv shows with the wife on it , as well. The viewing angles and sound are great, the colors are amazing and I've never felt better about a TV purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Techi The days of turning on the tv are gone
Takes a long time to turn on. Doesn't work with what we already had sony brand like games we had purchased, have to purchase games all over again. Basically a marketing tool that gives you a chance to buy movies and music. Slow and cumbersome between activities. Disappointed. Nice screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bahnhaus The complete TV
Great picture and sound. Better speakers than other models and thin TV's. 3D capable and with other handy features for managing the audio/video. Easy to connect to other audio/video components and to cable service. Due to the nature of the screen there is a room light reflection to manage when watching movies and TV shows. Adjust your room lights accordingly.
