Launched in February 2014 fhe Sony KDL-50W829B is one of the first new season televisions that have arrived into stores. It's a 50" 3D Smart television and fills the gap between last years 47" and 55". This new screen size gives you more options, and of course comes with the latest technology from Sony.

The set comes with X Reality Pro to give you a great picture, and a 800Hz motion rate refresh rate. It's also 3D with 2 pairs of free glasses that will come with it. Connect a USB had drive to one of the 2 USB ports and you can record your favourite shows directly from the television. You can also playback most popular music and video formats from USB.

It comes with 2 pairs of 3D glasses so you can enjoy 3D television too, whether from Blu-ray or by using the simulator to turn your favourite 2D shows into 3D. You can even convert the stand into a handy flat mounted wall bracket.

HDTV Test Highly RecommendedHDTV Test

HDTV Test reviewed this set in March 2014 and gave it their 'Highly Recommended' award.

"This year’s Sony W8 is a different beast to last year’s Bravia W8, owing to a change in underlying LCD panel from IPS to VA which delivers much deeper blacks, resulting in a punchier and more alluring picture. Add accurate greyscale and 2.4 gamma to the mix, and the KDL50W829B is capable of highly filmic images"
