Sony KDL-55HX823

CNET

  • Summary: We love the sophisticated styling, punchy 2D pictures and impressive line-up of Internet video services on the Sony KDL-55HX823. It's marred, however, by less than sterling 3D performance and backlight inconsistencies.
  • Cons: Below-par 3D performance; No 3D glasses included; Weak bass sound.

Sony KDL-55HX823

What Hi-Fi?
22 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Sony’s KDL-55HX823 is billed as a premium 3D-enabled screen, so the fact it comes with no 3D glasses seems to be taking the mickey a bit. That faux pas apart, the Sony is a talented and hugely desirable TV. Its styling is dramatic and purposeful, and Sony’s OptiContrast panel has been designed to help minimise the effects of glare on the screen.
  • Pros: Elegant design, fantastic motion handling, Freeview HD picture, Smart functionality
  • Cons: 3D glasses cost extra, detail in blacks can be bettered, 3D images lack punch

Sony KDL-55HX823 3DTV review

Pocket Lint
21 September 2011
  • Excerpt: This isn't Sony’s most expensive screen, that dubious honour goes to its KDL-55HX923. But don't bother with that because the HX823 series’ luscious 3D, sparkling 2D and a web video hub that’s genuinely engaging will blow your socks off.
  • Pros: Sharpness, blur-free, 3D, online video choices, upscaling, user interface, Freeview HD
  • Cons: High price, lacks MKV playback, black levels not convincing

  • Excerpt: High up in Sony's "Cinematic" HX Series and just 27mm deep, this Edge LED-backlit LCD TV is a high-end choice indeed.
