Product Description

Sony KDL65W850A 65-Inch 1080p 480Hz 3D LED TV

From the Manufacturer

Sony make . believe

The W850A produces a picture so realistic you might just forget you're watching TV. Color, clarity and detail are at their best in everything you watch with Sony's exclusive X-Reality PRO picture processing technology. The new TRILUMINOS display presents a wider range and more brilliant colors than ever seen on a TV before. Other features, like built-in Wi-Fi and smartphone compatibility put you in control, so can enjoy even more entertainment.


Color, clarity and detail at their best

The W850A displays everything you watch – HD movies, sports, YouTube clips and home movies – in clarity and detail so real it’s like looking through a window. Sony’s X-Reality Pro engine restores images to their original beauty with rich colors and high contrast for our most lifelike picture ever.

More brilliant color than
ever before

See a wider range and more brilliant colors than ever with Sony's unique TRILUMINOS display, giving you our most authentic viewing experience ever. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid, while faces look better with more natural skin tones.

Moves like real life

Golf balls roll clearly, with less blurring, as the camera follows them across the green. Footballs retain their detail and move smoothly as the camera pans quickly during a kickoff. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic. Motionflow XR 480 takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to double the motion effect for lifelike clarity.

The difference is dynamic

It's all about perfecting a natural look. Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with local dimming displays your movies and shows with tremendous accuracy and detail, especially in dark scenes where details tend to get lost. Contrast boost in just the right areas creates pitch-black night scenes and bright scenes that pop with vibrant color.

Your smartphone, now on TV

Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the W850A, Sony is helping you add
value to the entertainment you
already own2,5,6.

Go beyond cable with
built-in Wi-Fi

Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and open the door to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and more1.

Additional Features

Sound that’s all around you

Whether you’re watching movies, live concerts, drama or sports – enjoy rich, dynamic sound from your TV speakers that feels like it’s filling the room. Unique to Sony, S-Force Front Surround technology processes audio signals to create an immersive, finely detailed soundstage that pulls you right into the heart of the action. An enlarged ‘sweet spot’ lets you enjoy optimum audio reproduction, even if you’re not sitting dead-center right in front of the TV screen. It’s the perfect way to enhance your viewing experience, with sound you might expect from a dedicated multi-channel surround sound system.

Your smartphone, now on TV

Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the W850A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own.

1. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally “mirror” what’s seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it’s charging from the TV5.

2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast enabled to the TV2.

3. Using One-touch mirroring with NFC technology, briefly place your compatible Xperia smartphone to the one-touch remote. You’ll instantly be able to view exactly what is on your smartphone’s screen on the TV6.

In-your-face 3D action

Brace yourself for pure 3D excitement that feels like you're standing alongside the actors. Just slide on the comfortable lightweight 3D glasses and enter a while new dimension3. Four pairs included.

Control TV with your smartphone
or tablet

Control the TV or browse your local channel guide using the TV SideView app on your smartphone or tablet (Android or iOS), all without interfering with what you’re watching on the TV. Learn more about the show you’re watching with information like cast and episode details. Search what’s available to watch on TV, Internet videos and apps like Netflix. Once you find what you want, you can select to view it on the TV. Make your viewing more social by Tweeting about the show from your mobile device2.

Onboard manual

You will never lose your TV manual again. The iManual is available through the menu system on the TV – always there if you need it.

Twice the fun: 2‐player games with no split screen

Say goodbye to split screen. Now you and a friend can both experience your own big-screen view of the action as you play nail-biting games on your PlayStation 3 system. SimulView gaming presents two separate pictures: each player watches independently through light easy to wear optional Simulview glasses7. There’s already a growing choice of SimulView game titles available.

Quartz-cut design

Inspired by the sharp edges and color found in quartz crystals the Quartz-cut design brings a new edge to TV with a hint of translucent color that emphasizes the hidden gem within. Brilliant color, sharp detail and an overall sense of beauty can be found in the thin border that traces the edge of the TV screen.

Life-sized video calls

It's like they're in the room with you. Skype video calls bring your family and friends closer than ever as they appear as large as life on your big screen—for free1. Just connect the easy-to-use Skype camera (sold separately) for a face-to-face look at the caller on the beauty of your Sony HDTV.

I'm loving the TV so much now.
L. Ho
Many owners had reported picture quality issues that had me concerned, but my set has had none of the problems mentioned.
I can say I am very very amazed on how good the picture quality.

The picture on this set simply blew me away. It's plenty bright and has the best colors I have ever seen on a TV. I really like the large 65" Triluminos screen. This set has the deepest blacks and best colors ever.

The other night I watched Avatar in 3D. Let me tell you, it looked much better than at the theater. The TV picture is plenty bright in 3D when wearing the active glasses. It's amazing how the colors looked so vivid even in 3D. At the movie theater the 3D picture was never bright enough and the dingy colors had that stupid greenish tint. Now with this new Sony set I will be watching a lot more 3D movies.

This new KDL-65W850A set includes 3 larger speakers which gives it really good sound.

This is a Smart TV and has lots of extra's to many to name and includes many pages of easy to select apps to use. I counted a whopping 290+ apps once I connected it to my internet/router and selected Home/ all-apps. I would think anybody would enjoy owning this fantastic Sony set. Most of all I'm really impressed with it's 3D performance. The Triluminos picture quality is simply outstanding for general viewing and especially for streaming or blu-ray movies.

We have the w900a and the w850a ... both are phenomenal. Make no mistake about it, the picture on the 850a is every bit as good as it's smaller 900 brother. In fact, the uniformity is actually better on the larger screen (no idea why as this seems backwards to me). The sound is also much better on the 850 vs the 900 since it has an additional speaker (3 in the 850 vs 2 in the 900). I don't notice any difference in response time between the two units. Visually, the 900 has a slight green border from the cut glass on the edge of the screen while the 850 has a silver steel mesh border.

Both TVs are incredible but if you have the room and extra cash, go for the 65" 850.

This is without a doubt the best TV purchase I've ever made and perhaps the best electronics purchase I've ever made. After getting this TV set up and getting to spend some time watching it I literally called a few of my friends and told them I was considering taking a job without so much travel just so I could be home more to watch this thing. I seriously made that call. The really "bad" part about this TV is it completely spoils you. I can't even watch TV at anyone's house anymore because nothing looks as good as the picture on my TV.

Now onto the details of this beauty. There are some sample photos that come with the TV to really showcase the panel this TV uses. I just looked at those sample images tonight with my family and everyone went WHOA when we flipped through them. There are 2 pictures in that set of 4 that look identical to a 4K TV I was drooling over a few weeks ago in Chicago for about 3k more than I paid for this set. The picture quality on this TV is just stunning. The skin tone is perfect, the blacks are black, whites are white, no motion blur that I see and hardly any energy is used to run this TV. When I saw the sticker on the TV showing energy consumption over a year I thought it was a joke. I've had the TV on for several hours now and went over to it and put my hand on back and front of it. There is no noticeable heat generated at all from this TV. There is an alert LED light on the set that will display different colors depending on what you are doing with the set. This is very similar to the lights on our smart phones. I have a GS4 and when I have a text message the LED is blue, charging red, etc. It's nice to see that notification LED now being implemented in TVs and it is helpful. I run my sound through a 5.

I got my TV shipped from Amazon yesterday. The TV came with two remotes. The One-Touch remote looks quite slick and beautifully.

I had few hiccups setting up SEN, that was more likely because of cable. SEN has lots of apps, am not even sure if i would try all of them. Photos looks beautiful, could definitely feel the effect of triluminos display,colors were quite clear.

3D on this TV looks amazing. I have played clips from 3net , When I was playing "Jewel of the World", it was as if i was looking out of window , travelling in a ship.

Cons: I am unable change picture settings/sound settings while playing content from Netflix. The Default setting are anyway awesome so not much complain there.

Just bought this TV and have had it for just over two weeks now. It's fantastic.

I spent the last couple of months reading reviews, from Amazon, CNET, other sites. I had it narrowed down to the Samsung, Sony and Panasonic Plasmas. After looking at all of the side by side, the samsung picture quality just wasn't on par with the Sony or Panasonic. However, of the two sets, the panasonic has a slightly better picture quality... but it's really only noticeable when looking at them both side by side. I didn't want to pay a $1k more for the panasonic - so I got the Sony and the Sony soundbar for the same price.

Picture quality on the Sony is increadible. Just watched Pacific Rim in 3D.... so, so great. Color is fantatics, blacks are black, and the detail is flat out amazing.

You won't reqret buying this TV.
