Sony KDL-47W805A review


The Sony KDL-47W805A sees the brand seemingly back on top form when it comes to TVs, offering a sporty performance and a stylish 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

Whatever way you look at it, this 47-inch W8 Series LED TV is rather impressive. A distinctive design helps its stand out from rival cookie-cutter flatscreens, and it’s well-equipped from a Smart connected point of view. Building NFC into one of the...

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

Sony KDL-47W805 review


The KDL-47W805A delivers good pictures in brighter rooms and has very good standard-definition upscaling. Its mediocre black levels means it's not a great choice for evening movie viewing, however. It's also a tad expensive and its smart TV system lags...

Clever circular stand ; Easy mirroring of smart phones via NFC ; Decent lineup of smart TV apps ; Strong 3D performance ; Good standard-definition upscaling

Pricey ; TV interface is relatively poor ; Black levels could be deeper

The KDL-47W805A delivers good-looking pictures across both HD and standard-definition sources if you're using it in a brighter viewing environment. Many people will also like its crisp design -- especially the classy circular stand.

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
