Introduce your home to the true beauty of Sony HD. Full HD 1080p image detail and bright LED backlighting are just the foundation for a great picture. Everything moves naturally with Motionflow™ XR 120 technology that delivers clear, realistic sports and movie action. Smartphone ready - video, photos and apps on the phone are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen while charging.

Features

  • Full HD 1080p
    Nothing expresses crystal-clear detail like Full HD 1080p picture quality. Take advantage of the all-out HD glory of broadcast TV, satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray Disc™ player or PlayStation®3 entertainment system
  • Bright and slim
    Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve a slimmer TV design that looks beautiful in your home. What's more, Sony's Direct LED Backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail
  • Silky smooth
    Recreate the movement of real life. Sprinters accelerate clearly with less blur, so watching from home feels like you're watching from the stands. By minimizing judder, Motionflow™ XR 120 technology helps fast-paced action look natural for a more authentic view of the game
  • Your smartphone, now on TV
    Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With the smartphone ready R450A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own. 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 TV
  • USB input for your camera and more
    Share your vacation photos instantly on the big screen or listen to your favorite music. Simply connect your compatible digital camera, USB-enabled MP3 player or USB storage device directly to your HDTV's USB input. It's a fast and simple way to relive the memories without a hassle. Even choose between slideshow, clock and calendar viewing modes
  • Clearly different
    Fine details and textures appear in whatever you’re watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony’s advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won’t find on most televisions
  • Photos on the big screen
    Turn your TV into a super-size digital photo frame. Connect a digital camera, USB thumb drive or cloud photo services. Then enjoy your photo collection with a choice of attractive slideshow, clock and calendar display modes
  • 3 HD inputs
    Plug into the action with versatile HD connection options. Three HD inputs include two HDMI® inputs for sources like your HD cable box, home theater system, Blu-ray Disc™ player or PS3™ system, and one HD component input

    First Sony TV & in LOVE! Was a little worried about the MotionFlow tech making things look like a soap opera but it doesn't at all. Makes things just a tad smoother which is great for action movies and video games. I've read complaints about the viewing angle but I didn't notice any degrade in picture quality from any angle. Out of the box picture seemed calibrated, sharp, bright & clear. User Interface is very straightforward with lots of settings (if you so desire). Very thin bezel and stand make it look like a piece of art on my TV stand. Very polished product all around, can't recommend it enough.

    I recently purchased this tv along with a Sony blue ray player hoping to have a wonderful Sony experience and a seamless integration of the two devices. This is far from what happened. After plugging in my new Sony device I ran into many problems, one of them being that I could not operate tv functions when my blu ray played was on! After buying a new blue ray and still having the same problem so I called Sony . This didn't help at all since they pretty much said there is nothing they can do about it, even though this problem is clearly a software issue. Secondly this Tv only has Two hdmi ports, with one of them placed annoyingly on the side of the tv so and hdmi cable that is plugged in hangs out from the side of the tv. Do not be fooled by their advertisement of 3 hd inputs, they only say this because one hdmi port doubles as a MHL port. And lastly, the biggest gimmick of them all, is the hz rating on this tv. Nowhere will you be able to find the hz rating of this tv, not on their website, not on any manual that comes with the tv and certainly don't trust the Sony guy at your local tv store. After intensive research and filtering through tons of bs on the Internet I finally called Sony again. After waiting 10 minutes for the employe to look up my answer I was informed this tv is only a measly 60 hz. Let me repeat that this tv is only 60 hz. So if you are planning on watch high sipped sports like hockey or football even video games be warned not matter what Sony does with their " motion flow" technology it will be not be the smooth seamless picture you were hoping for. Sorry to rain on your parade of finding a cheap 50 in led, but in this case you are really getting what you pay for. I am currently packing up all my Sony products and returning them after two weeks of frustration and sadness. Once a company I looked up to as a kid growing up for high quality equipment only to be disappointed as an adult who finally has the money to buy some nice electronics. Goodbye Sony, you are no longer a product I will ever purchase again.

        Our living room tv recently broke and we needed to replace it. With Christmas around the corner we did not want to spend a whole lot of money on a replacement. This tv was a great deal for a tv from a reputable manufacturer. It has a great picture and good sound quality. We do get a glare on it but I think that is because of where in our living room it is hanging. Our other tv had one too. I would definitely recommend this tv to anyone looking for a great deal!

          Purchased just before thanksgiving and have watched a lot of football since. This TV is absolutely amazing, especially for the price. I like it much more than a smaller Samsung I have at home. Sony design and quality at 50" for this price is a steal. Highly recommended

          Comments about Sony 50" Black 1080P LED HDTV:

          The low profile border around the screen is very nice. Colors and sound are good too...almost too good as it reveals all the flaws in the on-screen content like bad makeup on news anchors or uneven lighting in sports arenas. I like everything about this but...there's only one composite input and no s-video input either. I'm still too heavily invested in analog media and have an older DVD player (with no HDMI output) and a large VHS library and working VCR. Both devices only have composite outputs so I either have to buy a composite A/V switcher or use the RF antenna input to view the VCR. That's what all the newest TVs all come with unfortunately so it's a trade off between picture quality and flexibility. If your home set up is all digital then this TV can easily accommodate you but if you need to connect more than one analog device, be prepared to come up with a workaround.

              Excellent picture quality at a affordable price, love the thin bezel and stand design also.

                Comments about Sony 50" Black 1080P LED HDTV:

                Bought this for home use. Excellent picture and sound. Dose not have all the options of a "smart" TV, but I didn't want all that stuff anyway. This TV suits me just fine.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was excellent. I followed the tracking and it arrived right on time.

                Our state and county just raised taxes to 7.25%. Buying online saved all that money.
