Sony Bravia KDL-55W802A Review | Digital Trends

Sony’s W802 series sits just below its top-tier sets, offering a full suite of apps, plenty of image processing, and a bright picture. But troubles with judder on Blu-ray discs have us scratching our heads.

Sony KDL-55W805C

We take a look at the Sony W805C with a 55-inch HD screen, Android TV and X-Reality Pro. But at £999 for a 1920x1080p TV it seems expensive given the current 4K budget TVs.

While it's largely a sideways move from 2014's W829, the Sony KDL-55W805C is tremendous value for money in terms of picture quality.
