Sony Bravia KDL-40HX703 - Pocket-lint


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

Excellent pictures, 200Hz display, network features

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

Sony's 2010 Bravia line-up have impressed us, serving up not only stunning pictures, but a comprehensive palette of extras. 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...

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 KDL-46HX703


Picture quality watching hdtv through the built in freeview HD tuner is excellent, especially the football. PS3 quality at 1080p is also superb.It is very easy to setup using the menu.The tv design is also superb in black

The sound output is ok but is a lot better through a sound system

Sony KDL-40HX703


USB input for photo's and ample hdmi ports. Nice looking set

Don't know enough yet but have a problem deciding if occasional picture break up is a TV fault or cable supplier signal problem

Good picture & motionflow is useful - left on setting 3. EPG better than older models. Update on its own when connected to internet

Slow internet access & limited online TV. Different options not always easy to find in menus. Older remotes easier to use
