Sony KDL-52 Z 5800

 

Sharp, bright picture., Excellent depth and colours., Accurate 24p reproduction (even from 60-hertz signals)., High motion clarity in video-based material., Universal tuner for analogue TV, DVB-T (Freeview), DVB-C, and DVB-S2 (freesat, also in HD)

Poor motion clarity in film-based material., Lack of format-switching for up-scaled 4:3 pictures., Awkward DVB-S navigation

Wow! Sony’s new 52-incher offers an extensive set of features, enormously bright pictures, and highly accurate colours. Admittedly, 2,500 pounds isn’t exactly cheap for a TV, but the Sony is worth every penny, even despite weaknesses such as its...

Sony Bravia KDL-46Z5800 review

 

A brilliant 46" LCD TV with built-in Freesat tuner

Superb picture performance ; An excellent use of 200Hz technology ; Good multimedia prowess

Plain design ; CCFL-backlight ; Limited net interactivity

A great TV from the old master of LCD TVs that highlights the fact that LED isn't necessarily the best option out there

Sony Bravia KDL-40Z5800 LCD TV review

 

Sony's first 40-inch LCD TV with built-in Freesat tuner is a stunner

Superb picture quality ; Freesat integrates nicely ; Neat and space-saving design ; 200Hz is very effective

Presets not the best ; Viewing angle a bit limited

Sony KDL-40Z5800 review

 

It might have the added bonus of Freesat, and impressive picture performance, but the competition just got a whole lot hotter

A very impressive picture performance all-round, especially when it comes to motion and colour

Minor backlighting issues ; the strength of the competition

For once, dodgy backlighting doesn’t entirely ruin a Sony five-star bid – Philips has helped out, too

Sony Bravia KDL-40Z5800 40in LCD TV

 

John reviews the 40in Sony Bravia KDL-40Z5800 LCD TV - the brand's first set with a built-in Freesat tuner.

While the 40Z5800's audio shortcomings and, come to think of it, a slightly steep-looking price stop Sony's new Freesat posterboy from achieving 10 out of 10 greatness, the neatness of its Freesat integration and, above all, some outstanding picture...

Sony Bravia KDL-52Z5800 TV review

 

Built-in Freesat is just the tip of the iceberg – this superb set is packed with other goodies and delivers killer picture quality

Scintillating hi-def pictures and shedloads of features

Expensive and AppliCast has limited appeal

Sony KDL-40Z5800

 

Generally high quality sound & vision that was at the high end specification of the previous generation of Sony TV's.

Now an obsolete product so lacks a SMART, 3D upgrade.

Large screen for the cost.

Back light shadowing and dark scenes could be better.
