Sony Bravia KDL-EX523 review: Sony Bravia KDL-EX523

 

Just as it was at the height of the cathode-ray television's popularity, the sub-$1,000 mark is a sweet spot for flat-panel TV purchasing today. Back then Panasonic and Sony were much more popular than LG or Samsung, but things have changed.

The Sony KDL-EX523 series is relatively inexpensive for an LED-based LCD TV. It delivered decent black-level depth and very good video processing, including the ability to handle 1080p/24 sources. Its cinema preset provides decently accurate pictures...

The Sony television exhibits murky shadow detail and blue tinge in dark areas. Uniformity is a problem with large gray splotches across black screens.

The Sony EX523 series produces a solid though workmanlike picture at a price that competes well against similarly featured LED TVs.

Sony 32-EX523 review

 

For this review we tested the 32in model in the EX523 range, but it's also available in a 40in screen size (KDL-40EX523). That model has identical specifications except for its dimensions and power usage. We're confident that image quality will be...

Packed with features and very good image quality, but the excellent CX523 is better value
