Sony Bravia KDL-40HX803 review

 

When we first heard that there were going to be "3D Ready" TVs coming from Sony we audibly groaned. "HD Ready" caused plenty of confusion a few years ago. With a band of "3D Ready" TVs are we going to see the same confusion? The HX803 is one such set:...

Excellent handling of HD and SD content, XMB, Bravia Internet Video

2D to 3D conversion isn't great, viewing angle not great, price when you consider you have to buy the accessories

Our final impression on 3D from the HX803 is that the ad-hoc approach using conversion from 2D to 3D leaves a lot to be desired; watching content designed for 3D makes a much better impression. Overall it is a great offering from Sony, even if it lacks...

While the majority of 3D TVs you can buy come with the transmitter that synchronises the active shutter glasses integrated into the TV, with the KDL-40HX803 you get a separate transmitter unit. This plugs into the rear of the TV and sticks on top of...

An excellent 2D TV with an amazing internet portal, but 3D suffers from crosstalk.

Sony KDL-46HX803

 

Sony have produced a decent all round TV which has one of the best LCD implementations of 3D technology to date ..

Picture quality, one of the better LCD 3D implementations

3D 'Crosstalk

Sony are just about managing to keep up with the likes of Samsung when it comes to well performing competitively priced LCD TVs across the range.
