Sony Bravia 55-inch KDL-55HX853 LED TV review

 

Decent picture quality, good uniformity of picture from an edge-LED set, decent price at time of writing, attractive "art object" design, full of connectivity including Skype and catch-up services

Slanted design won't suit all and is exaggerated in 55-inch model, corner filtration "vignettes" in bright scenes, dark scenes show some inevitable edge-LED light, default sound needs tweaking, SEN access is too slow, Homeshare needs a rework

One thing we've not yet touched upon is the KDL-55HX853's price. A handful of months is a long time in tech, and this big ole Bravia beastie doesn't have as big a price tag as you might imagine. Well, not any more anyway. The current sub-£1,450 price...

Sony gets its picture quality groove back with the high-performing 55inch Sony KDL-55HX853, a 3D LED Smart TV with a dose of X-Reality Pro

Pristine HD images ; Outstanding motion resolution ; Catch & throw’ DLNA sharing

Slight crosstalk on 3D ; Thin, uninvolving sound ; Multimedia support limited

The KDL-55HX853 isn’t big on gimmicks, but if you’re looking for a flatscreen with excellent image quality, a content-rich net portal and luscious design, then it’s a must-see.

Sony KDL-55HX853 review

 

It's no exaggeration to say that Sony enjoyed a bumpy 2011. Quite apart from its well documented financial ills, the brand's sprawling TV range was wildly inconsistent, with not even top-flight models escaping criticism.

Outstanding image processing; artefact-free frame-rate frippery; stylish Monolith design; content-packed entertainment portal

Crosstalk still an issue with 3D content; thin, nasal sonics; no support for MKV

Is this the best 55in LCD TV we've ever seen?

Outstanding picture quality ; Superb value for money ; Excellent online service

Could be easier to use in some areas ; SEN loads slowly ; Occasional 3D crosstalk

Sony BRAVIA KDL-55HX853 3D LED TV review

 

Like the HX925 the BRAVIA HX850 is a ‘Monolithic Design' Sony TV, with no visible bezels or disruptive design cues. We tested the HX850 with its optional stand, which includes more powerful speakers and a six-degree backwards tilt, but the bundled...

Sony's new HX850 has good picture quality for its price, performing better than similarly-priced LG and Samsung models in its default and calibrated settings. Apart from some minor issues with detail in dark areas, the HX850 handles both standard and...

Looks, build, finish, superb black tonality and detail, great motion-processing, remarkable sound

Whites could punch harder, not the leading upscaler of DVDs

Sony's bid to take over your living room certainly is a tasty one. This 55-inch slice of nice is just about as connected as they get: it pipes Sony's internet TV service straight to the big screen, but unlike many rivals, it packs Wi-Fi so you won't...

Review The 55inch KDL-HX853 is currently the highest ranked of Sony's 2012 TVs. It heads up a new Spartan range from the brand intended to rebuild its TV fortunes. Interestingly, it doesn't come laden with features seemingly pulled at random from a...

Sony's 2012 flagship 55in set throws the spotlight back on TV picture quality.
