This thing is tiny. It&rsquo;s also very basic in its design: you won&rsquo;t even find a power button, as Roku claims the device draws less power than a nightlight. The back of the box has a handful of sockets: mains, HDMI (cable not included) and RCA connectors. Power up, turn on your TV, and follow the prompts.</p> <p>Getting connected is easy, and you&rsquo;ll be done in minutes. Hooking up to Wi-Fi is just a matter of entering your router&rsquo;s password. Next you activate your Roku 1 online from a computer, a process that also lets you shop for apps. Finally, the box will configure itself, rebooting with the latest updates along with all the apps you asked for.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/multitasking-master-amazon-fire-tv-movie-streamer-games-console-and-babysitter/news">Amazon&#39;s Fire TV is a movie streamer, games console and babysitter all in one</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="No, he doesn&#039;t have really big hands" alt="Roku 1 media streamer review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/roku-1-media-streaming-review-003.jpg?1398002582" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Pictures of ports are always sexy" alt="Roku 1 media streamer review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/roku-1-media-streaming-review-004.jpg?1398002582" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Pretty, simple </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Once set up, you&rsquo;re free to look around, although you won&#39;t find much to explore at first - the only three options are&nbsp;a settings menu, an app market, and a page of your selections. </p> <p>That&#39;s fine by us, because it makes for a simple, attractive system in which you can&#39;t possibly get lost.

Besides the usual suspects, there&rsquo;s more here than you could (or would) ever use. There are useful ones such as Y-Cam&rsquo;s HomeMonitor, which turns your Roku into a CCTV system, but sadly most of the boasted 450+ channels are somewhere between baffling and utterly useless.

Yes, that&rsquo;s a thing.</p> <p>Once you&#39;ve picked your channel and chosen what to watch, you can settle back and enjoy 1080p video and 7.1-channel surround sound (where the source provides it).&nbsp;And enjoy it you most surely will; a mini-binge of&nbsp;<em>House Of Cards</em>&nbsp;demonstrated a stable feed with a picture to rival that of a Blu-ray.

In short, it makes a great first impression.</p> <p>Have a look round the back and you&#39;ll find four HDMI inputs, all of which have ARC (Audio Return Channel) and MHL (Mobile High-definition Link) compatibility. That makes it a breeze to send audio through to a home cinema setup or hook up a mobile phone or tablet.

This Sony is wonderfully realistic, serving up vibrant reds, clear blues and inky blacks on its edge-lit LED LCD panel.&nbsp;The clean whites could have a touch more punch, but that&#39;s our only real complaint.&nbsp;Viewing angles are great too - not something that could be said about Sony&#39;s 2013 sets - with colours staying just as vivid as you move to the side.</p> <p>Stick on a Blu-ray and you&#39;ll be treated to a crisp, smooth, detailed picture, and even standard-def TV and DVDs look great. You might want to spend a little time tweaking the settings though - as is usually the case with modern TVs, you&#39;ll get the best results by turning off all of the (usually unnecessary) &#39;Reality Creation&#39; and &#39;noise reduction&#39; modes then starting again.</p> <p>If 3D floats your boat, the W829B is of the active variety and comes with two pairs of specs in the box. You lose a little brightness and might notice a little smearing at times, but overall the picture remains superb in three dimensions.</p> <p>As far as sound goes, the W829B is pretty good compared to most flatscreen TVs. There&#39;s a decent amount of weight to audio, plus there&#39;s a Sound Booster mode which brings voices forward in the mix and a fairly decent surround sound option. You&#39;ll still be far better off with a&nbsp;full 5.1 speaker setup or even a soundbar, of course - but hey, at least Sony&#39;s trying.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/ces-2014/best-ces-tvs-youll-want-buy-2014/feature">The best of CES - the TVs you&#39;ll want to buy in 2014</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="717" height="538" title="Sony KDL-50W829B picture quality" alt="Sony KDL-50W829B smart TV review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Sony-50W829B-smart-tv-picture-001.jpg?1395419986" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> SMARTER THAN THE AVERAGE SET </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Sony&#39;s given its smart TV portal a new lick of paint, and very nice it looks too. It&#39;s also incredibly easy to use and navigate - quite important, that - meaning you&#39;ll spend less time hunting for content and more time watching it.&nbsp;</p> <p>So what&#39;s on offer? Well as with all smart Sony sets, you get Sony&#39;s own&nbsp;Music and Video Unlimited services, and these are helpfully arranged in Movies and Music tabs all of their own. Within these tabs you can preview 30 seconds of a song or watch a film trailer before buying - another nice feature. With Netflix and Amazon Instant/LoveFilm also present, there&#39;s no shortage of things to watch, and if you don&#39;t fancy paying for your viewing, BBC iPlayer, YouTube and Demand 5 are all on board too. No ITV Player or 4oD though, which is a slight shame.</p> <p>Another clever touch is the Discover feature, which monitors what you watch then makes suggestions for other shows you might like, learning over time that yes, you really, really love anything with Ray Mears in it.&nbsp;And then there&#39;s the Live Football Mode, which arrives just in time for the World Cup this June. Select this mode and the set will&nbsp;enhance the crowd noise to supposedly recreate what it&#39;s like actually being in the stadium. Does it work? Kind of. The crowd noise is a little too loud, and it doesn&#39;t come with a dodgy chicken balti pie at half-time. But you do get a feed of&nbsp;football-related videos from YouTube and a FIFA archive. So let&#39;s call it a 1-1 draw.</p> <p>DLNA is included too, and works wirelessly as well as via Ethernet. If you&#39;re streaming full HD films from a laptop or NAS, we&#39;d always recommend going for the wired option, but all the same we&#39;re glad built-in Wi-Fi now comes as standard on the top smart TVs.&nbsp;</p> <p>Control options include a standard remote, which features dedicated buttons for instant access to the apps page, Discover section or Netflix, plus Sony&rsquo;s TV SideView control app. The app is free for both iOS and Android and can be used for pretty much everything you&#39;d need - browsing and selecting channels, flicking through the&nbsp;handy EPG, buying on-demand content and lots more.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/google-chromecast/review">Google Chromecast review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Sony KDL-50W829B My Apps" alt="Sony KDL-50W829B smart TV review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Sony-50W829B-smart-tv-apps-002.jpg?1395419986" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="500" height="375" title="Sony KDL-50W829B Music" alt="Sony KDL-50W829B smart TV review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Sony-50W829B-smart-tv-sound-apps-001_0.jpg?1395419986" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="501" height="376" title="Sony KDL-50W829B Movies" alt="Sony KDL-50W829B smart TV review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Sony-50W829B-smart-tv-video-unlimited-001_0.jpg?1395419986" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="499" height="374" title="Sony KDL-50W829B Discover" alt="Sony KDL-50W829B smart TV review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Sony-50W829B-smart-tv-network-001_0.jpg?1395419986" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> VERDICT </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>If you&#39;d suggested two years ago that a TV this good would be available for&nbsp;less than a grand, you&#39;d have been burnt as a witch.
