Sony w700c Design

Curved: No
The looks of Sony w700c is good. It has an Illumination LED light at the bottom of screen which glows in different colors when we press buttons from tv remote and it can also be turned ON/OFF from the tv settings menu. It has mid thin black borders on all the four sides which are exactly same like other Sony low end led models. It is thin at the top but thickness increases as we moves towards the bottom due to connectivity options at the lower back. Overall it looks quite good.

Stand Sony w700c StandThe table top stand is silver in color and has a matt finish which looks good. Packaging also include screws to assemble the stand.
Back Sony w700c backWall Mount: Vesa
Sony w700c has a black plastic body at the back made of good quality plastic which gets dirty easily and also prone to scratches.

Borders: 1.8 cm
Borders are made of plastic and are black in color, prone to scratches and looks average like other Sony low end led models.
Sony w700c thickness

Maximum Thickness: 5.9 cm
Thickness at the top is 1.6 cm. But as we moves down, thickness increases very much. Overall Sony w700c has a medium thickness.
Picture Quality
Sony w700c Contrast

White: 119.1 cd/m2
0.024 cd/m2

Contrast: 4962:1
This tv has a very good contrast ratio with deep and uniform blacks . Picture looks little bit dark but overall picture quality is quite impressive. Colors look bit saturated but after calibration (detailed info given in settings tab) movies look very good due to excellent color uniformity.

Backlight Bleed Sony w700c backlight bleedThere is no backlight bleed on this tv.
Black Uniformity Sony w700c black uniformitySony w700c has great black uniformity. Blacks on the screen are perfectly uniform and there is no spot at all.
Gaming and Sports
Input Lag Sony w700c Input LagInput Lag: 15.0 ms
Outside Sports Mode: 37.6 ms
This tv is great to play games due its very low input lag in sports mode and this results in very fast actions on the tv screen.
Gray Uniformity Sony w700c gray uniformityGray uniformity (or color uniformity) is okay. So panning shots (fast moving shots) while watching cricket or other sports will look good.

Color calibration out of the box is quite satisfactory except few adjustments which you can see in the picture settings tab at the top (though it varies by unit a lot). To balance RGB, we slightly increased the blue color. Also we adjusted the color gamut as per Rec.709 standard. If you watch tv mostly at night, then you can adjust the brightness, backlight and contrast from settings given by us as we have calibrated the tv for a dark room.

Sony w700c tv remote
Tv comes with only 1 non smart remote and two batteries.
The tv is pretty much well calibrated out of the box but we have made some adjustments in picture settings for perfect picture quality in a dark environment. Also we have changed Picture Mode to Cinema 1 as it is close to our desired calibration readings. You can copy the settings given below for perfect picture quality at night or for a dark room.

We have reduced backlight and brightness by few points to reach the desired white luminance of 120 cd/m2. You can adjust the brightness as per light in your room, it will not impact calibration very much.

Colour temperature is changed to Warm 2 to achieve desired settings. Noise reduction is turned off, but if you are watching DVD or other low resolution content, you can turn it ON.

As picture quality out of the box under Cinema 1 mode is very good therefore most of the settings are left at default.

Blue color is bit low as in our pre calibration readings. Therefore we have slightly increased it by one point to balance the RGB colors.
Conclusion Sony w700c has got a great picture quality and it also has lots of smart features which makes it worth the money. Audio quality of this tv like other Sony models is very loud and clear even at full volume. It is also good for gaming due to its low input lag. SD and HD content looks very good on this tv. Overall it is a great tv but the price is somehow high as compared to other brands. Currently we are in the process of reviewing various models of other brands and we will notify about the best value for money models very soon.
