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 Bravia KDL-55W905A


Sony's TVs keep getting better thanks to some nifty new tech

Sensational 2D and very good 3D picture quality ; Distinctive and elegant design ; Impressive audio quality

Very limited viewing angle ; Sony Entertainment Network Hub menu is cumbersome ; Minor crosstalk with 3D

And should you rather view content stored on a USB flash drive or other device, USB streaming and DLNA network streaming are present, too.

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-55W905A


A great looking TV that wows in 3D, but there are a few snags that means it falls short of five-star glory

Great design ; Easy to use ; Stunning 3D performance ; Largely convincing and more vibrant colour palette ; Good motion handling ; Excellent detail in brighter scenes

Poor viewing angle ; Detail lost in dark scenes ; Blues occasionally overblown ; Sound is on the thin side

Stacks of detail and a stunning 3D performance, but pictures lack the punch of a five-star product, and we'd like to see brighter whites too

Stacks of detail ; Good black levels ; Crisp 3D

Whites could be brighter ; Contrast could be better ; Lacks picture punch of rivals

Overall the Sony KDL-46W905A is a very capable TV, which seems to fix some issues we noticed in the 55in version, but adopts a few of its own in the process. We love the layer upon layer of detail it shows, but the picture lacks the punch and natural...

Sony KDL-55W905A review


After exploding back on to the TV scene in 2012 with its stunning HX853 series, Sony is hoping to make just as much of a splash with that model's successors, as represented here by the 55W905A.

Superb image and audio quality; good quantities of online video streaming; striking design

A little 3D crosstalk; limited viewing angle

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 smart 3D TV


Sony seems determined to improve its image. While rival TV manufacturers tout voice recognition systems and play tuner Top Trumps, Sony's latest flagship is all about picture quality. Indeed with its groundbreaking wide colour Triluminos backlight and...

Beautiful image quality, vibrant colour fidelity, 3D performance is strong, bright full HD 3D clarity, great design and build quality is top notch, wide range of file support including MKV

Lack of a second usable tuner is definitely a handicap, limited apps and on-demand content

The bottom line: Sony’s KDL-40W905A is a gorgeous LED screen with class-leading colour performance and motion resolution, and a design that’s unashamedly lush. We really like the way the emerald green diamond cut bezel sets the TV apart from its narrow...

Sony KDL-46W905A review


There's plenty of momentum behind Sony TVs at the moment, and W9 is the tip of the spear

Superb picture quality ; Excellent interface ; Very efficient ; Best-ever input lag

It's pricey ; Lacking in apps ; No Freesat tuner

The W9 has become a favourite for 2013 among AV experts and it's easy to see why. It's a fantastic TV that both looks fantastic and produces picture quality to match. The W9 has become a favourite for 2013 among AV experts and it's easy to see why....

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
