(Review of Bravia 55A1E after 4 weeks)
The picture quality is simply amazing. Not only is 4K content superb, HD is excellent --it does an excellent job of up-converting from HD. No problem with the sound either.
As a [large!] 4k monitor it is perfect; as a “smart TV”, though, I have issues with it.
The streaming content choices are severely lacking. Some are built in, such as UTube and Netflix; others are loaded through Google Play Store. Therein lies a major problem. Many are unavailable, such as Acorn TV and Britbox. (While both appear in the Google Play website they required Android 4.2 and so cannot be loaded on this TV which has version 4.1.)
I was able to load MHzChoice and sometimes it works sometimes fails. Even worse was Fandor that is so limited as to be unusable, one cannot search by genre for example. By attaching a Roku box all 4 of these services are usable and are breathtaking! The downside (apart from paying for additional hardware) is you now have two remote controls to use: one for controls like pausing and one for volume.
There are a few other annoyances I find. It has Bluetooth capability and it paired with my Evantree headphones without a problem. But each time enabling them (going from TV speakers to headphones) is a lengthy and cumbersome process; it takes 27 presses on the remote control to connect.
The home screen has a lot of clutter that there doesn’t seem to be a way of removing.
When wall mounted, attaching hdmi cables is a little awkward. It is also strangely hampered by the identifying lettering being dark grey on a black background.
I like the feel of the remote control. It has a microphone for voice control which of course doesn’t help if you’re using the Roku box. A button labelled “TV” can be set to an input source which is handy; it would be nice if some of the other buttons could be programmed. (I don't find having buttons labelled Google Play and Netflix helpful.) Many buttons such as Audio and Subtitle do nothing except to display at the bottom of the screen the playback location -- the same as the Play buttons (pause/forward/back) do. These latter buttons are small and crowded together. They are hard to find quickly and it is too easy to hit the wrong one, for example hitting the rewind and going to beginning of show instead of going back 10 seconds.
If you hunt on the web site there are a couple of manuals that explain what some of the buttons on the remote that don’t do anything are supposed to do. The manual, though, turns out to not to be specific to the A1E but covers a range of models. (It talks about 3D features for example which are not on the A1E.) It also mentions things like “Opera TV” that doesn’t seem to be included or available either.
The default screen saver displays the time in the lower right hand corner, always in the same place. If the purpose is to prevent burn-in then always displaying the colon in the same place is pretty stupid.
It's a little flaky. Once it locked up and needed a power cycle (reboot). Another time there was no audio, and again simply pressing the power switch on the remote wasn't enough, it needed the plug pulled.
