Sony KDL-22EX553

 

Easy to use, attractive design, good features, up to normal expected Sony standard.

Only irritating and bad point is the loss of the Picture Freeze button available and much used by me on previous models. It was useful if needing more time to read news streamers, film credits or to hold a screen for someone else to read etc.

Picture quality is exceptional. Pleased I purchased the 22" as I was informed Sony are discontinuing this size Smart TV in white. Overall pleased with my purchase and would consider buying the Sony 26" version if the price was right at my Sony dealer.

Hand held controller would have been nice in white. I also find it uncomfortable in regards shape to hold. This also is a bit tedious annoying with channel change when choosing say channel 3 from 2, when what you actually get is channel 4 with the...

Excellent picture and tuning in procedure.
