The Sony W600B LED TV is a great budget gaming TV. However, it has a narrow viewing angle and it doesn't have advanced features like motion interpolation. These two issues shouldn't be a concern to gamers, though.
If you are a gamer looking for a 40" or 48" LED TV that doesn't break your bank, the Sony KDL40W600B or the Sony KDL48W600B is your best bet. It has low input lag and offers great picture quality for the price. For use other than gaming, you will prefer the Samsung H6350.
The design of the Sony W600B is simple. The depth and borders of the frame are thicker than average, but the TV is very light.
The stand has a low profile. The TV also comes with everything you need to hang it on the wall, so you won't need to buy an additional wall mount.
The contrast ratio isn't very impressive, but considering the price, we can't really complain. The blacks are still very good for an LED.
The backlight uniformity is almost perfect. Certainly one of the best that we've seen in an LED TV.
The Sony W600B's gray uniformity is also excellent. The corners are a bit darker, but this can't be noticed when watching normal content.
As with most LED TVs, the colors lose saturation when viewed from the sides. If you sit directly in front of the TV, do not worry about this issue.
The amount of reflections off the screen is average for a semi-glossy finish. Nothing to worry about when you have a few lights on.
The W600B doesn't get very bright, but it should be fine if you have a few windows in your room.
The motion blur is good for an LED. It is even better when using the LED Motion mode, which doesn't increase the input lag significantly, but reduces considerably the brightness (more details and a picture in the Q&A section).
The input lag is low, so this is a great gaming TV. It isn't the lowest that we ever recorded, but it is more than low enough to not notice it.
Sony's software features are really slow. It takes a while to boot and to list USB files. Check out our review of Sony's 2014 Smart TV platform.
