Sony Bravia KDL52W4000

 

Sony's KDL52W4000 is an exemplary Full HD panel. It's surprisingly slim, with great contrast and brightness and a price tag that is actually quite rea...

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.

Superb pictures and a distinctive design from the latest Bravia

Excellent picture ; Decent sound ; Comprehensive connections

Over-fussy OSD ; Sound a little underpowered

Not just extra pixels

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...

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

Sony Bravia KDL-40W4000 review

 

A great TV from Sony. We wouldn't say it's the best-looking piece of kit we've ever seen, but the picture is brilliant and the sound is impressive too

Picture and sound quality ; Ease of use ; Menu system

Design is rather random ; Could have more HDMI inputs at the back ; Backlight is too bright

For competition, take a look at Toshiba's picture-frame Regza 40ZF355D or the excellent Panasonic Viera TH-46PZ85, both of which offer amazing 1080p performance, with the Panasonic offering superb blacks and the Toshiba specialising in very natural motion

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

Recommended!

Sony Bravia KDL-40W4000 Full HD 40in LCD TV

 

Sony rights the wrongs of the past with its latest Full HD 40in LCD TV.

After misfiring so badly with its previous LCD set, Sony has returned to form in quite spectacular fashion with the 40W4000. In fact, this TV isn't just good, it's shockingly good.
