  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: With high-end features come high-end looks. The Sony KDL-46HX853 is a gorgeous TV fit to be the centerpiece of any home cinema. It combines Sony’s preference for solid clean lines without sacrificing on the latest top tech. A generous array of connections ensures that you can plug in a number of HD compatible devices such as games consoles and Blu-Ray players using any of the four HDMI inputs. Wi-Fi lets you add the Sony KDL-46HX853 to your home DLNA to play back musi...
  • Cons: Unfortunately, Sony does not include a pair of 3D glasses with the Sony KDL-46HX853, leaving you to cough up the cash for a pair of your own, and if required, the rest of the family. Locating the myriad of apps can also be a cumbersome experience, requiring you to scroll through lots of menus to find what you want. That said, the Sony KDL-46HX853 still offers a tonne of features.

Sony KDL-46HX853 review

6 August 2012
  • Conclusion: 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 what is, by Sony’s usual standards, a hugely aggressive price and this is a great buy.
  • Pros: Hugely improved screen, Convincing 3D, Stacks of smartness, A sound unrivalled

Sony Bravia 46-inch KDL-46HX853 LED TV review

Pocket Lint
7 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Sony is kicking back hard with its latest TV series. The HX853’s image quality is sublime; we love the blacks and the punchy colours. But it’s not as perfect as many other reviewers may have you believe. The slanted monolith soundbar stand looks cool when the TV is off, but who wants to watch a movie on a slanted screen? It makes a minor difference, but is something to consider.
  • Pros: Great picture quality, soundbar stand produces rich audio straight from the box, lots of connectivity and built-in Sony Entertainment Network
  • Cons: Slanted stand design won’t suit all, Homeshare should be simpler to set up and have a better library system, response can be slow

  • Excerpt: With the latest TV ranges from Samsung and LG already out and attracting mostly positive critical notices, the pressure on Sony's debut TV for 2012 really couldn't be any greater. Especially with Sony's TV business contributing spectacularly to the brand's latest round of cataclysmic operating losses.
