Sony KDL-47W805 review

 

This TV enjoys strong features and pretty looks and costs much less than the imperious W905 series

Bright content looks great ; Good online platform ; 3D works well ; Gaming lag is excellent

Average native contrast performance ; Flawed contrast boosting features ; Audio is uninspiring ; Online interface lacks sophistication

If you do consider yourself a bit of a movie buff, we're pretty confident that the Sony 47W805's difficulties with dark scenes will annoy you from time to time.

Sony KDL-47W805A review

 

The Sony W8 Series 47-inch screen combines web features with cracking design

Great motion on pictures ; Fast ; funky user interface ; Jam packed Internet TV portal

Smart TV portal a bit jumbled ; Single tuner seems a bit retro ; Not all catch-up services

Sony Bravia KDL-47W805A

 

Can Sony's second tier W8 series pick up where the deliriously good flagship W9 left off?

Bright scenes and 3D look good, Lots of online video services, Remarkably low input lag

Has trouble handling dark scenes, Apps list lacks structure, Visible line structure with 3D

Sony Bravia KDL-47W805A

 

Great picture, good sound, links to the internet and to the computer wirelessly, and 4 sets of 3D glasses. We're very happy with it.

A couple of negatives for us, which we didn't notice in the shop : there is NO on/off switch. Except at the wall socket. Design-wise, a minor point, we don't really like the Sony badge on the lower edge!
