Sony KDL-40W4000 review

 

With vast improvements over its predecessor, this is one desirable 40" LCD

Outstanding pictures ; Tasty design ; Impressive selection of connections ; Good price

No 100Hz ; Minor shimmer over fine detailing

The mixed results that we’ve seen from other Sony LCDs this year appear to have been ironed out

Sony KDL-32W4000 review

 

Will this be the impressive Sony LCD we've been waiting for?

Striking design ; Mostly stunning HD pictures

No 100Hz ; Not great with standard definition

A jaw-droppingly good HD performance and excellent sound make this an LCD to treasure

Sony Bravia KDL52W4000

 

A crisp and clear Full HD LCD panel

Vibrant, clear picture, handles 1080p content brilliantly

Standard-definition video looks blurred and interpolated, no 100Hz support

Vibrant, clear picture, handles 1080p content brilliantly

Standard-definition video looks blurred and interpolated, no 100Hz support

It stumbles on standard definition content and doesn't support 100Hz picture technology, but Sony's 52 inch W series LCD is hard to fault in high definition picture quality tests.

Sony KDL-46W4000 review

 

Superb pictures and a distinctive design from the latest Bravia

Excellent picture ; Decent sound ; Comprehensive connections

Over-fussy OSD ; Sound a little underpowered

Minor niggles aside, this is a fantastic TV across the board

Sony KDL-32W4000 television

 

As far as we know, there are only two other Full HD LCD TVs at this small 32-inch size. The sudden demand for Full HD at all sizes has caused Panasonic to launch its TX-32LZD80, Sharp its LC-32X20E. But while those two tellies put their hi-res 1920 x...

Gorgeous onscreen menus, Full HD pictures, powerful speakers

Shoddy Freeview picture quality, slight blur on pictures

It’s hard to judge whether Full HD is worth it as this size, but the premium price gets you far more than just extra pixels. With great onscreen menus that make it a joy to use, the 32W4000 has plenty for gamers and Blu-ray players – though digital TV...

Sony Bravia KDL-32W4000 review

 

The KDL-32W4000 has a rather plain design, with a wide black bezel and a long silver speaker grille under the screen.

The big-screen equivalent of fine Champagne: you can buy cheaper substitutes, but quality shines through

A giant leap forward, a simply stunning set, with a picture that’s full of energy and detail
