Sony KDL-40 V 5810

 

High contrast ratio., Neutral colours., Accurate 24p reproduction., Universal tuner (including CI+)

Poor motion clarity with standard signals., Lacks full set of aspect-ratio settings

The Sony KDL-40 V 5810 scores plenty of plus points: With its excellent features, contrast-rich images, and consistent colours, it seems on first glance to rival bigger, costlier Sony models. Still, the low motion clarity can be irritating — especially...

This TVs built-in HD tuner can't save this 32 incher from leaving us cold

Sony Bravia KDL-40V5810 television review

 

The latest Bravia HD TV in Sony's "V" range is this, the KDL-40V5810 and it sports integrated Freesat, Freeview and analogue tuners; AppliCast, Live Colour and 24p True Cinema along with all the other Bravia goodies.

Price, easy set-up, picture quality, eco settings, speakers, slimmer design, great connectivity

Uneven illumination in low eco mode, AppliCast's limitations

Sony's Bravia KDL-40V5810 is a neat step up for the Bravia V 5000 range of Sony's HD TVs with the inclusion of Freesat and digital Freeview and analogue tuners giving plenty of scope for viewing options and plenty of connectivity

Uneven illumination in low eco mode, AppliCast's limitations

Sony has done a good job on its updated V-series HD TV range and the 40V5810 is a great example with a nice balance between features, screen size, price and connectivity. And although it's not the top of the tree as far as Sony's higher end models go,...

With integrated Freesat tuner, the Sony Bravia KDL-32V5810 LCD TV looks good for its money.

Sony Bravia V5810 (KDL-32V5810) review

 

With Freeview HD already this year's hot AV feature, the Sony Bravia KDL-32V5810's freesat HD tuner is no longer the draw it once was. That makes it even more difficult to look past the set's aggravating backlight problems

Many aspects of its pictures are great ; The freesat HD tuner works well ; Reasonable amount of features

Backlight inconsistencies ; Flimsy online system ; No Freeview HD tuner ; Rather drab design

Conclusion As well as having its freesat HD tuner rendered less impressive by the arrival of Freeview HD, the Sony Bravia KDL-32V5810's problems showing dark scenes are really pretty tough to swallow at this price. There are better TVs out there

Sony Bravia V5810 (KDL-40V5810) review

 

The Sony Bravia KDL-40V5810's Web and networking features are disappointing, but, in pretty much every other department, this set puts in a superb performance. As a result, we think it offers great value for money

Fantastic picture quality ; Deep black levels ; Freesat HD tuner

No 100Hz processing ; Slightly uneven backlighting

Conclusion The Sony Bravia KDL-40V5810's Internet and networking features may be a letdown, but this set really delivers in terms of picture quality, and that's what counts. As a result, we think it's not just one of the best-value sets from Sony, but...

Integrated Freesat elevates this dependable all-rounder to something quite special

Built-in Freesat and solid all-round performance

Occasionally uninspiring picture quality
