Sony KDL-40NX700 LED LCD HDTV Review - Intro

 

The Sony KDL-40NX700 ($1699) is a slender TV that has enough bells and whistles to grab your attention, but it may have a hard time justifying its price premium over the Sony EX series. The NX700 features built-in WiFi, but both TVs offer excellent...

The Sony KDL-40NX700 is a strong performer, and undoubtedly attractive. It's loaded with features that fatten up the spec sheet, and some of them are actually useful. The streaming video package of features is truly excellent, and it hands-down the...

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40NX700 LCD Review

 

The Sony BRAVIA 40NX700 combines excellent HD performance with a host of high-end features like a 120Hz LED edge-lit LCD display, Wi-Fi connectivity and an impressive list of Internet content partners.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40NX700

 

The Sony KDL-40NX700 is high-end model near the top of Sony's product line. The 40-inch, 1080p HDTV, is quite thin, thanks to the slenderizing possibilities of the edge-lit LED backlighting, which take up less trunk than a traditional LCD television....

The key feature that separates the NX700 series from the lower-priced EX700 series is built-in WiFi. Both series have a hardwire ethernet connection, and EX700 series provides the option for a WiFi dongle that plugs into the USB port (for a mere $79...

Sony Bravia KDL40NX700

 

With the Sony NX700 LCD television, the company has shown it's able to boil its best design and performance ideas down into what is arguably its finest Bravia yet.

Incredibly vivid, detailed images ; One of the best feature sets available ; Great with all video sources ; Easy to use ; IPTV services will grow to include catch-up from most major stations

Some backlight clouding ; Reflective ; Stand is extra ; Widgets are mostly perfunctory

Its companion Bravia NX800, is essentially the same unit, with the exception that it has 200Hz MotionFlow technology on-board, whereas the NX700 has 100Hz MotionFlow. The NX800 is offered in two larger screen sizes — 52 inches (AU$4999) and 60 inches...

Sony NX700

 

NX700 and NX800 are the new designer ranges from Sony with an unique aluminum stand. We will look at the NX700 model that is similar to NX800 besides the 200 Hz circuit (100 Hz on NX700). NX700 still features the Internet TV service as well as the Edge...

Good 100 Hz circuit; Internet features and functionality; Materials; Fair blacks; Bravia engine scaling abilities; Inputs/output facing to the side; No clouding

Colours not perfect; Shadow details; A lot of reflections; Sound; Response time not perfect

Sony NX700 is a very elegant TV and the new monolithic design is a fresh breath of air from Sony. The choice of materials is well-chosen. But what is the NX700 really?

Another Sony Hit

 

I have been a Sony fan for many years. The technology, quality and integration into a home WiFi system are all reasons to own this HDTV. I have owned it for just two weeks and have put the set through many paces without a hiccup.The initial set up,...

Picture quality, seamless set up, built in WiFi connectivity

Product Specifications

The Sony KDL-NX700 Series LCD TV is an amazing television. The edge LED backlighting provides a number of advantages. It saves power, allows for an amazingly slim body, and can generate high contrast ratios through the use of local dimming. It has internet connectivity features which allow content streaming from a number of major online media providers, including Netflix, YouTube, and Pandora. It also connects to your home PC to stream media you have stored locally, through a specially designed interface. The front of the TV is a beautifully constructed single sheet of glass, which makes the bezel blend in smoothly with the screen. The Sony KDL-NX700 Series LCD TV has 4 HDMI ports, a USB port, an Ethernet port, and several audio out ports. This is a great HD TV which has about every feature that you would expect from a modern TV.
