Sony KDL-42W805A

 

A great-looking TV with many strengths but black levels let the side down

Bold design ; NFC-toting second remote ; High levels of picture detail ; Well-judged colours

Black levels need to be deeper ; Frustrating smart content ; Lightweight sound

The Sony KDL-42W805A is a fine performer with many strengths. We particularly like its fine detail and its stunning, comfortable 3D performance.
