Sony Bravia KDL-37EX503 37in LCD TV


We take a look at the 37in version of this Freeview HD-enabled LCD television.

Good at upscaling to HD ; Sharp HD pictures ; Good Freeview HD tuner handling

Poor black level response ; Lacks bass ; Little motion blur

Actually, it’s the latter. For while the 37EX503 and 40EX503 certainly aren’t chalk and cheese, there’s enough difference between them to earn one model a Recommended badge while the other goes home merely with an appreciative pat on the back.

Sony Bravia KDL-40EX503 40in LCD TV


The first commercially available Freeview HD TV.

Freeview HD included ; Bravia Internet video platform ; Excellent black levels

Slightly washed-out colours ; No 200Hz engine

The KDL-40EX503 is the most revolutionary and groundbreaking TV I’ve seen from Sony for an age - at least in terms of something that's actually accessible to the mainstream TV buying public.

Sony KDL-32EX503


Performance for the price is hard to beat and you get some useful features ..

Value for money, Picture quality

A touch of motion blur with SD

Unless it is important for you to experience the slender profile that comes with LED TVs, the KDL-32EX503 could be a perfect choice at this price level. Sony have created a well positioned screen with a decent feature set which performs well above...

Sony KDL-40EX503


Sony have come up with a class leading 40in LCD TV with the convenience of Freeview HD ..

Picture quality

A touch of motion blur with SD

Sony have created a well positioned non LED TV which performs well above average in virtually every respect. The EX503, at least in its 40in form, sets this year's current standard for flat panel TV's in this price bracket.

Image quality is great and navigation through menu is good too

Sony KDL-32EX503


The TV was easy to install, and the quality of standard (non-HD) digital images were excellent ; The sound quality was also very good

Sounds crazy, but there is knack to getting the batteries into the remote control ; I easily connected the Sony Dongle to allow the TV to be connected to the Internet via my wireless connection. However, the 'Activate Enhanced Features' are vague! The...

Sony KDL-32EX503


The overall screen design is very good and the picture quality is great

The screen & plastic surround does attract a lot of dust ; The use of the Wifi is limited and needs a key pad to be established as the hand control is a lot slower & cumbersome. Something like what NTL had few years back when they offered e-mail...

Good picture, looks good, access to BBC Iplayer, setup menus clear and logical, enough inputs of differant types

Automatic britness is not as good as it should be, some times the picture appears dull and a bit difficult to see detail. The other problem is the remote control the centre navigation ring is d ifficult toi control
