Sony brings a touch of class to the small TV world with this 26in model.

Excellent picture quality, Superb online functionality, Built-in Wi-fi

Some motion lag, Not full HD, Oddly high input lag

Sony KDL-26EX553

 

If space is tight, this Sony could be a perfect fit, but it's pricey

Attractive styling; decent spread of smart features; detailed picture; handles motion well

Not the most vibrant image; sounds insubstantial and weak; seems pricey

A bigger hindrance, though, is that it just doesn’t seem brilliant value, especially given the screen size you can enjoy if you spend a few pounds more. But this doesn’t take away the fact that, for a bedroom or kitchen, the Sony is a capable option.

Sony KDL-26EX553

 

Excellent picture in Freeview HD, acceptable in SD ; Wireless internet connection works well ; Has a digital optical output, which is excellent and hard to find in smaller TVs

Poor on-board sound quality (however, I use the optical out and feed a Denon mini hi-fi) ; Internet keyboard input via the remote is very clunky ; TV is slow to start - channel changing, menus, etc. not available for up to 30 seconds after switching on
