Sony KDL-40HX753 review


Smart TV with a corporate feel on this good value, though average, Edge LED TV

Video app selection ; Cinematic Blu-ray pictures ; Impressively clean 3D ; Colours ; Laid-back 'easel' design

Repetitive user interface ; Average upscaling ; No MKV support ; No 3D glasses included

Forget and make.believe; should be Sony's new motto if this 40-incher from its HX7 Series is anything to go by.

Sony KDL40HX753


Slick design with minimal border. Very easy to use with easy to follow menus. I like that you can turn the TV off (on the product itself) but still use the control to turn it back on

Tends to click now and again. Only two choices to angle that screen

Sony KDL40HX753


The picture quality is superb when your watching anything and in HD it's really fantastic words cannot describe ; The TV looks well presented,professional and doesn't look tacky or cheap style like the others brand equivalent models .The sound for most...

The USB hard drive gets auto registered to your TV when you first plug it in. This means you cannot plug it into any other TV to view your recorded programs until you de- register and re- register to the new or other TV and your stuff gets all deleted...
