Sony Bravia KDL-46EX503 review

 

Sony plays it safe with this good value bigscreen

Good upscaling ; Clean picture ; Contrast ; User interface

Soft picture ; Cluttered online platform ; Average build quality

The KDL-46EX503 is all about creating a comfortable, cinematic picture that never feels artificially processed or scarred with artefacts, and in that sense this is a conservative TV; there's little risky processing going on lest it introduces...

Sony KDL-32EX503 review

 

It's no good possessing the latest and greatest technology - in this case, Sony's Freeview HD tuner - if the delivery is botched. On this gloss black, gunmetal-bottomed LCD TV, the new high-def TV platform is handled so skilfully that memories of your...

XMB interface, smooth pictures from all sources, Freeview HD software

Lack of sharpness, some judder

An excellent Freeview HD performer, this small Sony keeps it light when it comes to picture processing; high-def pictures can lack ultimate detail and show-up a touch of judder and blur, but the prize for the patient is superbly clean images unrivalled...

High-def hero, SD zero

Web widgets, ease of use, HD picture

Spotted online for much nearer £1000, the rather utilitarian-looking Sony's use of LCD over LED does add some depth, but it still manages a superb performance with both Freeview HD channels and Blu-ray. Excellent colour and contrast are the highlights...

Sony Bravia KDL-37EX503 / KDL37EX503 review

 

Freeview HD and media streaming grace this brilliant LCD TVs feature set

Freeview HD tuner ; Very good online features

Colours can look muted ; HD not very crisp

Expert review by:

Sony Bravia KDL-40EX503 review

 

The first Freeview HDTV from Sony hits a living room near you

Good picture quality ; Freeview HD onboard ; Good value ; Excellent internet features

Picture could be crisper ; Colours could be more vibrant

The bottom line is that if you live in an area that already has or is soon to get Freeview HD, then the 40EX503 absolutely demands an audition.

Sony Bravia KDL-37EX503 37in LCD TV

 

We take a look at the 37in version of this Freeview HD-enabled LCD television.

Good at upscaling to HD ; Sharp HD pictures ; Good Freeview HD tuner handling

Poor black level response ; Lacks bass ; Little motion blur

Actually, it’s the latter. For while the 37EX503 and 40EX503 certainly aren’t chalk and cheese, there’s enough difference between them to earn one model a Recommended badge while the other goes home merely with an appreciative pat on the back.

Sony Bravia EX503 (KDL-40EX503) review

 

Excellent sound and picture quality, great Internet services and a Freeview HD tuner combine to make the 40-inch KDL-40EX503 an impressive mid-range TV from Sony.

Good black levels ; Great internet features ; Natural colours ; Built-in Freeview HD tuner

Some slight motion blur

All told, the Bravia KDL-40EX503 is a fine set from Sony. It produces impressively rich and cinematic pictures, has good sound quality and lets you enjoy HD content for free thanks to the Freeview HD tuner. The fact it also has BBC iPlayer on board...

Sony Bravia KDL-40EX503 40in LCD TV

 

The first commercially available Freeview HD TV.

Freeview HD included ; Bravia Internet video platform ; Excellent black levels

Slightly washed-out colours ; No 200Hz engine

The KDL-40EX503 is the most revolutionary and groundbreaking TV I’ve seen from Sony for an age - at least in terms of something that's actually accessible to the mainstream TV buying public.

Performance for the price is hard to beat and you get some useful features ..

Value for money, Picture quality

A touch of motion blur with SD

Unless it is important for you to experience the slender profile that comes with LED TVs, the KDL-32EX503 could be a perfect choice at this price level. Sony have created a well positioned screen with a decent feature set which performs well above...

This includes a huge list of video streaming sites, such as YouTube, Blip.tv, Daily Motion, The Ford Models Channel, OnNetworks, and best of all, lovefilm.com. This latter service allows you to sync your lovefilm account with the TV, so that you can...

Excellent all-round picture quality, Freeview HD tuner, fair price, uniquely good internet features

Motion could be a touch crisper
