Sony KDL-46W905A review


There's plenty of momentum behind Sony TVs at the moment, and W9 is the tip of the spear

The W9 has become a favourite for 2013 among AV experts and it's easy to see why. It's a fantastic TV that both looks fantastic and produces picture quality to match.

Stacks of detail and a stunning 3D performance, but pictures lack the punch of a five-star product, and we'd like to see brighter whites too

Stacks of detail ; Good black levels ; Crisp 3D

Whites could be brighter ; Contrast could be better ; Lacks picture punch of rivals

Overall the Sony KDL-46W905A is a very capable TV, which seems to fix some issues we noticed in the 55in version, but adopts a few of its own in the process. We love the layer upon layer of detail it shows, but the picture lacks the punch and natural...

Looks good ; Picture quality in the sweet spot good ; Easy to set up

Does not do the 'smart' thing very well ; Struggles with connectivity to other devices, temperamental ; Looses image quality when you move around the seating position, but not as badly as Samsung F7000

Beautyfull design and great picture

Sound not nearly as good as picture mine came with a free sound bar which is very good and makes up for the thin sound of the t.v

Sony KDL-46W905A


NFC, sufficient connections, wi-fi, design (nothing detracting from the screen), no gimmicks like hand gesture control, best colours I have seen, overall a good TV with a swivel stand but

Swivel limited.Stand could be a bit higher as the Sony Sound Bar blocks the bottom of the screen.NFC seems a bit hit and miss ; Can be a bit confusing with some functions ; More importantly the next 2 points would be very useful ; Should be able to use...
