Sony KDL-42W705B

 

Another great affordable Sony TV

Excellent picture quality ; Cute design ; Good multimedia support

Sound is only so-so ; No 4OD or ITV Player catch up services ; Pictures occasionally look slightly soft

Sony does offer a pretty wide-ranging suite of picture controls for such an affordable TV, though. But where Sony really shines compared with its competitors is with the range of picture presets it offers. These are more numerous, more intuitively...

A promising start for Sony's 2014 Full HD range, this TV performs well in many areas

Punchy picture ; Rich yet natural colours ; Deep blacks ; Good upscaler ; New, improved interface ; Slim build

Thin, sibilant sound ; Dark detail is lacking

With other screens for very little more money cropping up this year, the Sony’s price is maybe a little steep.
