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...

Even a year on from its unveiling the Sony Bravia KDL-55HX853 still proves its worth. Great picture quality and uniformity from this edge-LED LCD set that's only really let down by slow Sony Entertainment Network access and that slanted design which...

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...

Sony’s bid to take over your living room certainly is a tasty one. This 55-inch slice of nice is just about as connected as they get: it pipes Sony’s internet TV service straight to the big screen, but unlike many rivals, it packs Wi-Fi so you won’t...

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...

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...

In essence, the Sony KDL-46HX853 is a TV that will leave you with a strong...

As an overall conclusion, the Sony KDL-55HX853 TV set certainly cannot be overlooked if you want something that won't bail on you half way...

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...

The 55-inch Sony 55HX853 is the best TV from Sony in a long time. It produces gorgeous pictures in both 2D and 3D, has impressive sound quality and a very strong line-up of video-on-demand services. The styling will split opinions and its inability to...

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 and...
