Sony Bravia KDL-55W805C

 

You might believe that there's no longer room in the marketplace for a premium Full HD TV now that such models have been backed into a corner by the all-conquering juggernaut that is 4K.

Beautiful picture quality ; Exceptionally space-saving design ; Content-rich smart system

Android TV system doesn't impress ; Very average audio ; Not cheap considering it's not 4K

Sony KDL-55W805C review

 

This Sony set is an elegant, vibrant, Full HD TV with plenty of tricks up its sleeve...

Crisp, detailed and vibrant picture ; Strong, deep blacks ; Good smart features ; Sleek and sturdy build ; Good connectivity and easy to use

Black scenes can swallow finer detail ; Colour balance could be more natural ; Standard def is quite noisy

A vivid picture and decent smart features make this Sony TV worth considering

Sony KDL-55W805C review

 

Is a premium HD TV still worth buying?

Superlative picture quality ; Space-saving design ; Content-rich smart TV system ; Good auto picture optimisation

Slightly flimsy build quality ; Android TV isn't great ; Not cheap for HD ; Average sonics

So long as you don't see yourself being fussed about 4K for the next few years, the 55W805C is a compelling TV. Its engagingly slim form plays host to a long list of features that includes everything the TV needs to produce one of the finest pictures...
