Sony KDL-40W5710 review


This 40-inch beauty excels in many areas, but it's plagued by an uneven backlight that costs it a star

Fantastic Blu-ray pictures, especially where motion is concerned ; superb colours ; Freeview images

Uneven backlight in the corners of the picture

Sony KDL-40W5710


. For 5 years I have had no problems with this tv. With the Sony Blue ray player the picture quality was excellent.

I found that the picture quality on freeview not very good but when used with the Humax fox T2 hd box the picture quality was very much improved.

Ease of use and Bluray picture

Network and Internet capabilities are disappointing and almost useless. No automatic software updates over the Internet.- Not what I expected.

Consumer review (

Sony KDL-40W5710


4 HDMI sockets, picture quality once calibrated, the integration with my home cinema receiver. Remote is nice and clear compared to most

The black plastic surround attracts a lot of static dust and looks dirty nearly all the time. The picture has white 'clouds' near the corners which is annoying during late night viewing. The network feature is next to useless but I believe it has been...
