Sony Bravia 46-inch KDL-46HX853 LED TV - Pocket-lint

 

Sony's presence in the TV world has always been a strong one. Well, except for the company's last few generations of TVs that have fallen short of

Great picture quality, soundbar stand produces rich audio straight from the box, lots of connectivity and built-in Sony Entertainment Network

Slanted stand design won’t suit all, Homeshare should be simpler to set up and have a better library system, response can be slow

Sony is kicking back hard with its latest TV series. The HX853’s image quality is sublime; we love the blacks and the punchy colours.

Sony KDL-46HX853 review

 

Sony finally blows our telly-loving socks off

Elegant design ; Awesome 2D picture quality ; Good online content ; Excellent value

A little crosstalk with 3D ; A few operating issues ; SEN loads slowly ; Very rare backlight 'blocking

With the latest TV ranges from Samsung and LG already out and attracting mostly positive critical notices, the pressure on Sony's debut TV for 2012 really couldn't be any greater. Especially with Sony's TV business contributing spectacularly to the...

Sony's new top-end TV has great smart TV and equally impressive styling

Hugely improved screen ; Convincing 3D ; Stacks of smartness ; A sound unrivalled

Smart to look at and thoroughly clever to live with, this is by a long way the best of Sony's 2012 sets.

Great looks, build and finish, superb ergonomics, does fine work with black tones and motion, exceptional sound, impeccable backlighting

No great shakes at upscaling DVD, others offer even more dynamic contrasts, 3D glasses cost extra

Best 46-47in TV, Awards 2012. A really outstanding performer at the price

The brand's online entertainment portal, now known as Sony Entertainment Network (SEN), has also had a makeover. A clean Metro-style interface gathers content into easily perused groups. Streaming TV services include iPlayer, YouTube, Demand 5,...

Sony KDL-46HX853 review

 

For this review we tested the 46in model in the HX853 range, but it's also available in a 55in screen size (KDL-55HX853). That model has identical specifications except for its dimensions and power usage. We're confident that image quality will be...
