The Sony W850B LED TV is the best gaming TV you can buy in this price and size range. The downsides, which shouldn't really matter to gamers, are a narrow viewing angle and sub-par smart features.
The Sony W850B LED TV is really great. If you are a gamer and are looking for a TV in 60", look no further; this Sony W850B is the one you want. For mixed usage, you can save a few hundred by going for the Samsung H6350 instead, which also has a better smart platform.
The W850B is really heavy - almost twice as much as the W950B. It has the same triangular shape, which is thicker at the bottom, but with a black finish instead of an anodized finish.
The stand is also the same as the W950B. It can be used in two positions, a close one (as pictured), and one as wide as the TV.
At about 25°, the picture loses contrast and saturation. If you have an L shaped sofa, you will see a difference in color depending on where you sit.
Sony's smart TVs interface is laggy. It takes a while to boot when first opening the TV. Forget plugging a big USB drive in it; it took us 15+ mins to load up the list of files on ours. Check out our review of Sony's 2014 Smart TV platform.
