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 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

Having already been wowed this year by Sony's flagship Full HD TV, the 55W905A, expectations are sky-high for the step-down W805 series. After all, if the 47-inch Sony Bravia KDL-47W805 sat on our test benches can deliver the majority of the W905A's...

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
