Sony W562D has a good picture and sound quality and it is the best mid segment TV we have reviewed so far. There are lot of connectivity options and most of them are easily accessible. Build quality is good and the TV is made of good quality plastic. Though it is a smart TV but supports very few apps. Overall, it is a very good mid segment TV.
+ Low Input lag therefore good for gamers
+ Wide viewing angle
+ Good picture quality. Good black uniformity with deep blacks
+ Very good sound quality with sub-woofer
− High Price
TV sits on the stand with the help of 4 screws. Though stand looks lite as compared to the TV but still it holds the TV quite well. Stand is of greyish colour and is made of good quality plastic.
Black : 0.033 cd/m2
White : 120.648 cd/m2
Contrast : 3659:1
The TV has a good contrast ratio with deep blacks but blacks appear slight blueish in a very dark room.
The black uniformity is amazing with no backlight bleed but we have noticed slight black bending in the middle of the screen. Also there is a problem while displaying a 100% full screen black pattern, as TV automatically switch off the screen to show the deepest blacks possible, to overcome this we have displayed a 5% black pattern and took the readings accordingly.
Peak 2% Window : 376.7 cd/m2
Peak 10% Window : 376.7 cd/m2
Peak 25% Window : 376.9 cd/m2
Peak 50% Window : 376.9 cd/m2
Peak 100% Window : 377.3 cd/m2
The TV gets very bright therefore a good choice for bright rooms. Also brightness does not fluctuate much with change in window size like HDR TVs.
This feature is available by the name of LED Motion Mode in picture settings on the TV menu. If enabled, it helps to reduce the motion blur.
The TV has a VA panel. Although we have not measured the viewing angles but the screen looks reasonably good when seen from the sides thus fairly suitable for living rooms.
White Balance dE : 18.99
Color dE : 6.26
Gamma : 2.04
Prior to calibration, results are not very good. Grayscale dE and color dE is very high. Though not directly visible, but its definitely an issue when compared with another TV side-by-side.
