Sony KDL-40W905A review


Who wants voice control when you can have NFC and gorgeous images?

The Sony KDL-40W905A is the first LED TV to sport Triluminos tech for better colour reproduction. But will it make rivals turn green and see red?

Supremely sharp pictures ; Artful colour reproduction ; Spectacular design

Only one tuner ; Limited Entertainment Network

If you're looking for the best possible picture from your next TV, the KDL-40W905A is an obvious audition. Nothing else currently matches the clarity of its motion handling or the deep authenticity of its colours.

The Sony KDL-40W905A is a good looker and delivers very strong video and audio performance. It's unfortunately rather let down by its lacklustre smart TV system.

Deep black levels ; Strong colour performance ; Stylish, circular pedestal stand ; Easy mirroring of smart phones with NFC

Smart TV interface is relatively poor ; Expensive

The KDL-40W905A puts in a very strong showing in terms of picture quality. It's got very deep black levels by LED standards and also offers up rich and vibrant colours, while keeping motion blur to a minimum. It's also a more stylish looking TV than...

As a owner of the first HX series tv (803) & previously the X series (2000) i was glad to see last years 853 keeping up the company's great HD picture quality & having compared that to it's competitors it thoroughly deserved it's room full of awards....

Sony's HX series HD picture quality

I would like to see them update the look & feel of the smart features
