Sony Bravia KDL-40HX803


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

The Sony Bravia KDL-40HX803 packs in more than just 3D credentials, and outside of 3D the set mostly shines. But it does so at a price that makes 3D look rather expensive, considering you can get one of their excellent TVs of lower specs (but still...

Sony's entry-level 3D TV and prudent Blu-ray player have been designed to save you money

BD deck is brilliant value for money ; 3D upgrade is a sensible option ; Solid HD performance

Screen is clearly built to a budget ; Motion blur evident ; 2D-to- 3D conversion unconvincing

Sony Bravia KDL-40HX803


As a 2D LED LCD television, it's excellent, but if you're interested in 3D, this 40in set becomes a more considered purchase.

We do understand Sony’s idea with this, to be fair. For it helps keep the 40HX803’s up-front price down, allowing people to add 3D later as their finances allow. But there’s no getting round the fact that once you’ve 3Ded it up, the 40HX803 hits a...

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

Sony Bravia KDL-40HX803 review


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...

Sony KDL-40HX803 review


Yes, it's a 3D television, but it's certainly the best one we've seen to date and a class-leading performer in 2D too

Exemplary 2D performance, whether from off-air or disc ; good looks and fine ergonomics ; stable 3D

But 3D images expose patchy backlighting ; viewing 3D requires more outlay, too

In 2D, it boasts performance to rival the class-leaders – it's a shame the 3D backlight issue spoils matters

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.

Sony KDL-46HX803


Picture quality, internet options are really good but a little clunky in use - see below

Internet options really need some work. Great idea, but the films available through Sony's own site and LoveFilm are dire! Finding them is even worse, the search facility is terrible, the film descriptions are next to useless so you need a PC/smart...
