Sony Bravia KDL-40W905A

 

The best 40-inch TV in town? Could be...

Spectacular picture quality ; Good online video content ; Exceptionally low input lag

Limited viewing angle ; Smart interface is a touch primitive ; A few too many processing options

For us Sony could be doing more with its interface and secondary control apps to streamline content navigation. But despite this the SEN remains overall a superior Smart TV effort.

Sony's first Triluminos LED is put to the test, but how will the Sony KDL-40W905A fare?

Supremely sharp pictures ; Artful colour reproduction ; Spectacular design

Only one tuner ; Limited Entertainment Network

Sony KDL-40W905A review

 

When the light falls just right, Sony's W9 LED TV glints emerald, like something precious – which, indeed, it is. This 40in thinscreen follows hot on the heels of one of last year's finest LCD displays, the HW8, and seeks to maintains Sony's forward...

Diamond cut design; outstanding image fidelity; mobile device integration; multimedia file support; audio clarity

Single-tuner; self-aggrandizing user interface; half-hearted catch-up service

Sony KDL-40W905A review

 

Who wants voice control when you can have NFC and gorgeous images?

NFC smartphone mirroring ; Nuanced colour ; Clean and vibrant 3D ; Motion clarity

Limited smart TV apps ; Single TV tuners ; Tight viewing angle

It's the best 40-inch TV of the year so far but it's a bit pricey for us to really recommend it

Sony's best LCD TV is a beauty that comes close to matching the best plasma has to offer

Sony KDL-40W905A review

 

Connections include four HDMIs, SCART and component, a trio of USBs, an optical digital audio output and ethernet. Wi-Fi is also built-in.

While Sony hasn’t quite kept pace with the feature innovations offered by Samsung and Panasonic, it’s unquestionably stolen a march when it comes to image quality. This Sony W9 screen sets a new benchmark when it comes to motion clarity and colour...
