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...

Sony KDL-32V5810 review

 

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

Freesat HD tuner ; Good SD upscaling ; Sharp HD pictures

Poor backlight ; Issues with black levels

An HD tuner is attractive for its price, but its backlight flaws are less so

Sony Bravia KDL-40V5810 review

 

Sony cuts the price tag of this 40' LCD TV, but thankfully not the features

Deep black levels ; Impressive performance ; Good value

Below par widgets and media streaming ; Lacks 100Hz processing

Hi-def and standard-def pictures are a good deal better than the modest price tag would suggest

Sony Bravia KDL-40V5810 television

 

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. Sony has done a good job on its...

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

Sony KDL-32V5810 review

 

This baby Sony is a more than capable performer, but it's no class leader

Full HD spec ; simple to use ; good insight, superb sense of depth ; DLNA and media streaming

Some wobbles with motion ; colours are occasionally overdone ; muffled sound

Not the class-leading performance we’ve come to expect here but a solid, capable set at a decent price nonetheless

Sony KDL-32V5810 review

 

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

Built-in Freesat and solid all-round performance

Occasionally uninspiring picture quality

Sony KDL-40V5810 / KDL-40V5800

 

Looks good, compact. Good bass sound.

Inability to change default settings to reflect customer preferences. This means that every time it is used you have to select the output mode to Optical.
