Sony XD85 (X85D)


Sony XD85 (X85D in the US) is the successor to last year's X85C – at least on paper. We say on paper because Sony has changed one fundamental element. Last year, Sony used a VA type LCD panel in the 85 series. This year, the company has switched to an...

Android TV disappointingly slow


Never realised how slow it would be even to change channel using Android. Don't think I would have bought it if I had known. Disappointing as the design and picture quality are brilliant. Have had some trouble with internet connection - hard wired - so...
