Sony 55HX853

CNET

  • Summary: 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 stream common digital video formats is annoying, but overall, this is a very convincing high-end TV.
  • Cons: Styling won't be to everyone's taste; Refuses to stream common digital video formats; Menu system could be more straightforward.

Sony Bravia 55-inch KDL-55HX853 LED TV review

Pocket Lint
25 January 2013
  • Excerpt: The Sony Bravia KDL-55HX853 is the second telly from the company's dynamic edge-LED range that's made its way into Pocket-lint towers. It's a mix of unusual design with bags of picture-enhancing technology and enough connectivity - both physical and via Wi-Fi - to keep the techiest telly fan happy.
  • Pros: Decent picture quality, good uniformity of picture from an edge-LED set, decent price at time of writing, attractive "art object" design, full of connectivity including Skype and catch-up services,
  • Cons: Slanted design won't suit all and is exaggerated in 55-inch model, corner filtration "vignettes" in bright scenes, dark scenes show some inevitable edge-LED light, default sound needs tweaking, SEN access is too slow, Homeshare needs a rework

Expert Review

PC Advisor
25 May 2012
  • Excerpt: The Sony BRAVIA HX850 is the newest model in Sony’s 2012 TV line-up, and is the second most expensive TV on offer. It’s got a slightly higher price than the comparable Samsung ES7500 and LG LM8600. It has excellent picture quality in both preset and calibrated modes, but the Sony interface is beginning to look dated. See also Group test: what's the best TV?
