The Sony KDL-46EX503 is a surprisingly affordable mid-range TV. There’s a generous feature set and good image quality from high definition sources. Unfortunately, the poor handling of standard definition content lets this TV down....

All the excitement about 3D has rather distracted us from the fact that many viewers haven’t yet caught up with HD. There’s also another revolution going on, in Internet-enabled TV. Sony’s KDL-40EX503 ticks both boxes. As far as...

After battling our way through the uncharted territory of 3D TV lately, it’s a bit of a relief to sit back down with a good old 2D HDTV. Today we’re inspecting one of Sony’s “cost-conscious” Bravia LCD TVs for 2010, namely...
