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 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
