Sony Bravia KDL40W5810 LCD TV review

 

Sony jumps into Freesat TV with a feature-laden LCD screen

Superb black levels ; No really obvious image problems ; Copes well with poor-quality sources

Not the most spectacular HD pics ; Can't record Freesat HD channels ; Dearth of content on AppliCast online service

It doesn't feel as if anything has been sacrificed to make way for the satellite tuner as it's evident from the menu system and remote control that Freesat is a bonus feature. This is a stylish and easy-to-use TV that delivers consistently good images...

Sony Bravia KDL-32W5810 review

 

Impressive, if slightly pricey 32-inch Freesat TV with web widgets

Colour naturalism ; Smooth motion ; Xross user system

Slightly weak black levels ; So-so styling

A pricey, but impressively natural and generally very enjoyable set with a plethora of useful features

Sony Bravia KDL-37W5810 review

 

Excellent picture quality, integrated Freesat HD and media streaming are the KDL-37W5810's strong points, but the price is uncompetitive.

Sony KDL-40W5810 review

 

Adds Freesat to the 'W5500's substantial spec ; brilliant contrast, colours and motion ; solid upscaling ; loads of detail for the money

A little sibilance to sound

If Freesat takes your fancy, this is the best TV with it built-in

Sony Bravia KDL-40W5810 review

 

What do you get when you combine Freesat with a Sony Bravia? The KDL-40W5810, that's what. The ambitious satellite service joins plenty of other digital goodies inside this shiny black beast, and we find out how they all get along in our Sony Bravia...

Great pictures from all sources, a reasonable price and added Freesat goodness

Slightly frumpy looks, and the frustratingly throttled Applicast

A great way to get Full HD TV without handing over your cash to Mr Murdoch

Sony KDL-32W5810

 

Another accomplished LCD from Sony with the added convenience of built-in Freesat ..

Motion handling ability, Colour

Benefits of 100Hz do not convince

In the KDL-32W5810, Sony have produced another excellent all round performer. The added convenience of the Freesat tuner will be a huge bonus for those who are planning to access the service and with various suppliers discounting heavily it is also...

Sony Bravia KDL-46W5810 46in LCD TV

 

The menu system's a bit of a mess, but impressive levels of detail certainly show Freesat HD content at its best.

An untidy menu system isn't the worst sin that an HD TV can commit, and the image quality of the KDL-46W5810 more than made up for that minor lapse. It may not have a top-of-the-range spec, but the fine detail that it captures in HD images means that...

Sony KDL-40W5810

 

Really didn't like the fact that the Internet based Apps like I-Player, (and those not yet present such as ITV-Player, 4-on-Demand etc) do not update themselves - and there is no way of installing the missing ones). Also no WiFi receiver included.
