Sony's gigantic TV offers an enormous picture and excellent feature set, with versatile multimedia entertainment. Movies impress thoroughly in bright conditions, but fast movements blur a little, especially in sports broadcasts.

Sony KDL-52V5500 review

 

We know that Sony makes top-class LCD televisions, but in this case the backlighting lets this otherwise good set down

Brilliant combination of inky blacks and bright whites ; stunning detail, especially with HD ; great motion and colours

Poor backlighting ; just a smidge of noise around standard-def edges

In many ways, the ’V5500 is a most impressive set; but it’s also the most disappointing

Sony KDL-52W5500 review

 

Staggering motion handling from this big-screen Sony 52in LCD, but once again, it falls foul of a backlight that can't do its job properly

Takes all the brilliant aspects of the KDL-52V5500 and adds even better motion...

...but also suffers from the same uneven backlight

The Sony impresses in all areas, although it’s the backlight issue that costs the set a valuable star

Sony Bravia KDL-52V5500 review

 

Enjoyably detailed performance with Blu-ray and solid audio

Nice design ; Good HD pictures ; Decent audio

SD can be treated poorly

A solid LCD TV with some great HD pictures but it wont set the world alight

Fantastic picture and good sound. Really good in conjunction with the Blu-ray player that I bought

The elctronic programme guide is rather basic - not as good as the one on sky

Sony KDL-52W5500

 

Picture is very good even on standard def, it handles fast movement very well. Have no idea what the reviews are on about saying the backlight is dodgy, because I cant see any problems!

Sound could be slightly better, but thats nit picking.
