Simply average Not one of Sony’s best at all – actually a very average TV, with pretty appalling viewing angles (instant contrast and colour wash out unless viewed dead-on), so-so black levels (ANSI contrast of about 600:1), severe contouring, although colour accuracy was good (dE 2.8). Panel appears to be a basic Chi Mei Innolux VA-type (e.g. a basic one). Because it’s based on the ‘direct LED’ backlight system (NOTE: not with local dimming – more like a CCFL LCD with always-on LEDs in place of CCFLs) panel uniformity is ok, which makes a change from the atrocious/pot luck uniformity of overhyped Edge LED.It’s also worth noting that there’s no Sony picture processing chip here (such as the excellent X-Reality, which was always the selling-point of Bravia TVs): it’s just an off-the-shelf ‘system-on-a-chip’ design by MediaTek which is described on their website as being ‘basic’, and that shows in the bland picture quality and coarse user-adjustments available.

I felt like I had reclaimed part of my lounge with but no concession to screen size. Happy days. Looks-wise it is modern and attractive (better than the photos) and definitely an improvement on its predecessor although I slightly miss the swivel stand.The power lead is wired in and quite thin so easy to manage. Two HDMI ports is a bit stingy but its all I need for now with my Humax Freesat recorder and PS3. One is on the side so…
