Sony KDL-46HX753

 

Bigger is definitely better for Sony's latest 46in TV.

Good 3D pictures ; Good value ; Surprisingly strong black level performance

Surprisingly chunky design ; Calibrated pictures not the brightest ; No 3D glasses included

Sony KDL-46HX753 review

 

Sony has hit the performance/price ratio spot on with this impressive TV

Looks, build, finish ; ample spec at the price ; tremendous picture-making ability, with black tones a real highlight

Sounds frankly poor ; contrasts could be starker ; so-so DVD upscaling

The performance/price ratio is all in the consumer’s favour here – the HX753 needs to be seen

Sony KDL-46HX753

 

Nice design with very slim frame and light weight. Easy to use controls. Set up to the internet was straightforward and it works well with a home network. If you are prepared to make the effort to set up the image to suit your particular surroundings...

Sound quality is not great but this is somewhat inevitable with very slim panels. It is worth investing in a surround system or, if this is not an option, a Soundbar.

Image quality is excellent once you find the right scene for what you are watching, and maybe tweak a little the processing engine to tweak sharpness, motion flow etc. (Note that there is an impact on brightness, but that is not an issue)

The sound good be better, but then plugging in even a simple active speaker set to the headphone jack will vastly improve that, or a sound bar.
