Sony Bravia KDL-46HX850


Sony's Bravia HX850 series is a good-looking but pricey HDTV line offering LED backlighting, 3D support, Web features galore, and accurate out-of-the-box color—if only the contrast ratio were higher.

Attractively designed. Excellent image detail. Wide viewing angles. Accurate colors. Energy efficient.

Pricey, and 3D glasses not included. Low contrast ratio.

One of the biggest downsides of this TV, as with most Sony products, is the lack of compatibility with NTFS drives.

Sony's new HX850 has good picture quality for its price, performing better than similarly-priced LG and Samsung models in its default and calibrated settings. Apart from some minor issues with detail in dark areas, the HX850 handles both standard and...

Excellent HD picture quality Accurate preset colour modes Excellent colour and contrast after adjustment

It really is the best


If your looking at this television then like me you have narrowed your choices to SONY or SAM. The HX850 was a game changer for me, stunning visual superiority, over the 7000 and 8000 models. The proof, when they say BLACK they mean it. The X-reality...
