Sony W950C Bravia Android LED TV – full specs and video review

Specifications and video review of the premium Android 3D LED TV Sony W950C Bravia

KDL-43W950C
Today, at our consumer blog we are presenting you one of the cutting edge LED TVs offered by Sony this year. Sony W950C Bravia Android LED TV has a wide range of new features that will cover even the highest expectations. And even though this TV is primarily targeting the big Asian markets like India you can find very similarly equipped TVs around the world with a different code name on them.
The 43 inch Sony W950C (KDL-43W950C) that we are going to test today impresses with amazing picture quality and sound. And believe me the sound on this thing is really fantastic, one of the best I’ve heard on a TV. That’s probably thanks to the Dual Acoustic Duct Subwoofer which covers the low frequencies pretty well, something that is usually hardly achieved without an additional external sound system.
The most impressive feature offered by the KDL-43W950C is the Android compatibility and all of the features that it offers.
