Sony Bravia KDL40HX800

 

Yet another barnstorming 3D TV from Sony, the Bravia KDL40HX800 is a true all-rounder and demonstrates that LCD can do better blacks than plasma can.

Deep blacks ; Clean and sharp visuals ; 3D capable ; Hearty selection of on-demand content ; Attractive styling

A little small for full 3D impact ; Need to buy 3D receiver and glasses separately

Even so, Sony has demonstrated that there's still life in LCD and has produced yet another barnstorming television. This is a very deserving Editors' Choice winner.

Amazing clarity for play, work, and more play.

 

Primary use is for my PS3 on games and Blu Ray movies. I also use this as a monitor for my computer. Third use is for watching cable TV. TV is very light and easy to unpack and place on my desk by myself. I upgraded from a 1 year old Samsung 32" and...

Auto-switching on the input ports. Multiple hookups of different sources made easy. Crisp, clear, and bright ;

Length of the included power cord, was a little short for where I needed it. Wish there was a model smaller than 40 ;
