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.
The picture quality is good with deep blacks.
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.

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.
RGB colours are not much uniform out of box but after few changes in the basic picture settings, picture quality really improved a lot. We have calibrated the TV for a dark room and you can see all our picture settings in the next tab.
The TV has an inbuilt 14W sub-woofer which gives an excellent sound quality and this makes it stand out amongst the competition.
The TV has all the basic smart features like Wi-Fi, Screen Mirroring, Ethernet port etc.
- Web Browser (may require a firmware update)
- Screen Mirroring
- Photo Sharing Plus
- Photo Frame Mode
- FM Radio
Sony W562D is a good Full HD TV with decent picture quality but lacks high end features like HDR and Local Dimming. It can be a good choice for gamers as well as for home purpose. Sound quality is excellent. Overall, a very good TV with all the features but somehow costly considering the other models available in the market. Good choice if looking to go with a premium brand with all the useful features.
