Sony KDL-42W705B

s21.com
17 June 2014
  • Summary: The W7 delivers almost the same capabilities as the W8 , but with a cost saving of around £50. Despite the lack of Motionflow control, the overall picture quality of the W7 is not worse than the W8. It's just that there's no 3D option, which is a feature most users probably won't miss.

Sony Bravia KDL42W705

CNET
29 April 2014
  • Summary: Despite its very reasonable price, the KDL-42W705 produces extremely good pictures thanks to its accurate colours, deep black levels and strong handling of shadow detail. It lacks the 42W829's superior motion processing and 3D support, but if your budget doesn't stretch that far you won't be...
  • Pros: Thanks to its deep black levels and accurate colours, the Sony KDL-42W705 produces startlingly good picture quality for the price. It also has strong sound, a relatively easy to use menu system and a good lineup of ports.
  • Cons: This TV can sometimes be quite slow to start up and its smart TV system isn't as good as Samsung's. Also, Sony's better specified KDL-42W829 doesn't cost much more.

Test: Sony KDL-42W705B (42-Zoll-LCD-TV)

CHIP Online
1 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Der Sony KDL-42W705B zeigt im Test die zweitbeste Bildqualität seiner Klasse. Allerdings nur in 2D, denn 3D beherrscht der Fernseher nicht. Der Ton leidet etwas unter dünnem Klang bei tiefen Frequenzen, ist aber immer noch gut.
  • Pros: Sehr gute 2D-Bildqualität, Gute Ergonomie
  • Cons: Kein 3D, Mittelmäßiges Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis
