Sony KDL-40HX723 review

 

Sony TVs are a bit like Star Trek movies. They alternate between good and woeful for no apparent reason. But while the decent Trek flicks are relatively easy to predict - stick with the even-numbered outings and you won't go far wrong - avoiding the...

Crisp, convincing HD images; bright ‘outy’ 3D; well-stocked streaming media portal

No support for MKV, no 3D glasses included

The current stand-out screen in Sony’s 2011 range, the KDL-40HX723 combines elegant design and class-leading IPTV services, with superior high-def and perfectly acceptable 3D

Edge-lit LCD with superb 2D and 3D pictures and the excellent Bravia Internet Video service

Excellent Bravia Internet Video service ; 3D and 2D picture quality ; Multimedia support

Relatively high price ; No 3D specs included ; Minor crosstalk during dark scenes

The KDL-40HX723 marks a considerable and welcome return to form for Sony, firmly putting to bed any thoughts that the brand might have forgotten how to do 3D well. It's a very polished and enjoyable 2D performer, too, and sets new standards when it...

Sony KDL-40HX723 review

 

Sony's EX723 series turned out to be some of the worst 3D performers we've seen, but subsequent 3D models have upped the brand's game. On paper at least, this set looks equipped to do the business. It carries MotionFlow XR 400 processing; a system that...

Mostly very good 3D pictures; excellent 2D pictures; Sony’s BIV online system is superb

Residual 3D crosstalk in dark scenes; more than a little overpriced ; Performance: 5/5 ; Design: 3/5 ; Features: 5/5 ; Overall: 4/5

Sony KDL-40HX723 review

 

For this review we tested the 40in model in the HX723 range. It's also listed in a 46in screen size (KDL-46HX723) on Sony's website, but wer can't find the larger version for sale at present. That model has identical specifications except for its...

It's expensive, but this is a fantastic LCD all-rounder that has all the features we would expect and excellent image quality

Recommended!

Sony KDL-40HX723

 

After its disastrous EX723 series, Sony badly needed a 3D winner. And in the 40HX723, that's exactly what it's got.

Very good 3D and excellent 2D pictures ; Peerless online video service ; Superb upscaling

Tricky to use ; Rather expensive ; No 3D glasses included

Well would you believe it, Sony can produce a good 3D picture after all. In fact, the quality of the 40HX723’s 3D pictures make the problems with the EX723 range look even more like some kind of manufacturing flaw. The 40HX723 is also an excellent 2D...

Sony KDL-40HX723 40in LED 3D TV

 

Review The KDL-40HX723 is a feature-heavy 40in Freeview HD TV from the posh end of Sony's 2011 catalogue. While it sells for a tad more than a looky-likey from the brand's bread and butter EX range, the premium is worth paying if you want to see what...

40in Freeview HD telly with IPTV, 3D viewing and all the latest imaging enhancements.

Fantastic HD images, and Motionflow is tremendous. Excellent Freeview access & on-screen guide

Not the best looking LED television
