Sony Bravia KDL-40HX703 review


The Sony Bravia KDL-40HX703 falls into Sony's "Cinematic" range. They represent a step-up over the excellent EX or "Essentials" range that have gone down a storm.

Excellent pictures, 200Hz display, network features

Fatter than you might think, no Wi-Fi, EPG can be a little slow to open

In truth, the HX703 is a fantastic TV to live with, but given that much of that nicety comes from features you'll find on the cheaper EX range, you have to be prepared to swallow the extra cost in return for that 200Hz feature and a slightly more...

Sporting Sony's new Monolithic Design concept, this 40in LCD TV certainly looks the part.

While its Monolithic design might have been what initially caught our eye about the 40HX703, it’s actually been the set's strong picture performance and unrivalled streaming video talents that have lingered most in our minds.

Sony Bravia HX703 (KDL-40HX703) review


The Sony Bravia KDL-40HX703's starkly minimalist design is attractive, but what really impressed us is its combination of excellent picture quality and class-leading multimedia talents

Appealing, tilting design ; Excellent picture quality ; Superb multimedia functionality, including ground-breaking online video streaming ; Good remote control

Pictures become infused with purple if watched from much of an angle ; Dark picture areas look slightly hollow after calibration ; Sound quality is nothing special

Conclusion It's not perfect and it's rather expensive, but the Bravia KDL-40HX703's online talents are exceptional, and its excellent picture quality means it's a great debut for Sony's monolithic design. Consider our appetite for Sony's monolithic...
