Sony KDL-42W805A

 

A great-looking TV with many strengths but black levels let the side down

Bold design ; NFC-toting second remote ; High levels of picture detail ; Well-judged colours

Black levels need to be deeper ; Frustrating smart content ; Lightweight sound

The Sony KDL-42W805A is a fine performer with many strengths. We particularly like its fine detail and its stunning, comfortable 3D performance.

Quality of picture is amazing

Sound could be better and there is a blue line around the edge which wasn't clear whilst buying it which I think should have been as not everyone will like it

Brilliant picture quality, black levels are good. 3D is a nice feature. SEN smart channels are ok.

Sound is a bit weak. SEN ui is a bit laggy Screen frame/bezel would have been nicer if thinner. TV stand should have been polished chrome like the W9 model.

Sony KDL42W805

 

Have always bought sony & wasn't disappointed with this purchase. Excellent picture quality in HD & stunning in 3D. Standard def isn't bad. Some people have said the sound is poor but to me it's fine. A great quality tv for the price.

None that I can think of.
