It's no exaggeration to say that Sony enjoyed a bumpy 2011. Quite apart from its well documented financial ills, the brand's sprawling TV range was wildly inconsistent, with not even top-flight models escaping criticism. So the company has rationalised...

Like the similar KDL-40HX753, the Sony Bravia KDL-40HX853 comes with a stand that angles the set slightly backwards. In this case, though, it's much broader and chunkier as it not only supports the TV but also contains speakers. Sadly these speakers...

Hot on the heels of the Sony KDL-40HX853 we tested last month, its bigger brother – the 46″ KDL46HX853 – has arrived for review, which means that the complete trio of different-sized offerings within the Bravia HX853 series will have received the...

Thanks to its superb 2D and 3D picture quality, great sound and top-notch support for online TV services, the Sony 40HX853 is a great all-round package. There are a few niggles -- not everyone will like the design and support for video files could be...

verdict In some ways (particularly its supernatural ability with blacks, and the stability of its 3D images) the Sony KDL-46HX853 is the best LCD TV we've seen – it's undoubtedly the best flatscreen TV we've heard. Add in a raft of on-line features and...

Any quibbles relating to the KDL-46HX853’s file playback limitations or undernourished audio are quickly silenced by the storming image quality. This can be considered a top-class performer for both HD sports and movies. Throw in a huge selection of...

Time for a 2012 Sony HDTV to pass through our test room! Today we’re reviewing the 55-inch version of the Bravia HX853 series, which is the Japanese manufacturer’s highest-specced LED LCD TV for 2012. The Sony KDL-55HX853 is an edge-lit LCD...

The Sony Bravia HX853 delivers excellent picture quality in 2D and 3D, with high contrast, accurate colours, a near-perfect gamma and great responsiveness. However, even though the dynamic backlighting improves clouding (light patches leaking through...

The 46HX853 is an absolutely stunning LED set that truly lives up to its flagship status. That's primarily due to its extraordinary picture quality, with the sort of black depth, colour vibrancy and sharpness that you don't always get from LED sets. The...

Fantastic image quality, deep blacks and rich sound make this set among the best in its class. But the slow responsiveness, Homestream’s headache of a setup, and the slanted "monolith" stand are issues to consider. Ignore those bumps and its otherwise...

In some respects, this next-gen Sony is not significantly different from the models launched during 2011. It offers from the same mediocre multimedia file support and suffers from crosstalk-addled 3D. But the brand has made a big step forward when...

We think it would be fair to say that for the last few years Sony have been producing a lot of TVs that didn't quite live up to their billing and, perhaps more crucially, their price-tags. It's not that they've been making bad televisions, just that they...

The Sony KDL-46HX853 is one of the best HD televisions around,capable of gracing any living room, packed with features, brilliant picture and sound quality, and well worth stumping up the cash for. It’s just a shame the 3D glasses don’t come included....

There really isn't any overstating the potential importance of the KDL-46HX853 to Sony right now. For in one single leap its stunning picture performance takes the struggling Japanese giant from near-zero to all-conquering hero - an achievement made all...

Sony's new HX850 has good picture quality for its price, performing better than similarly-priced LG and Samsung models in its default and calibrated settings. Apart from some minor issues with detail in dark areas, the HX850 handles both standard...
