Sony KDL-40Z5500 review

 

The Sony KDL-40Z5500's superb performance is ruined by uneven backlighting (again)

Impeccable motion processing ; punchy, detailed pictures with subtle, neutral colours ; good sound ; compact, stylishly-understated design

Blotchy backlight

We’re really fed-up with saying this, but here’s yet another Sony with a superb performance that’s ruined by uneven backlighting

Excellent picture quality

Only average sound quality (my previous Sony TV from 6 years ago had better sound quality) Also takes ages for it to "warm up" when initially turned on.

Sony KDL-40Z5500

 

Extraordinarily clear & realistic picture, sometimes almost alarmingly so. Beautiful design, elegant & understated. Remarkably straightforward to set up and install. Quite brilliant in every regard thus far.

None.

Sony KDL-40Z5500

 

Set up is easy. Image quality especially when using blu-ray is excellent. Whilst S force surround is effective a surround system is necessary to get full quality sound.

Controller is fiddly when switching input sources.
