All AV-enthusiasts’ eyes may be on the forthcoming 4K screen revolution, but if you’re on the hunt for a good old Full HD set, Sony’s 2013 W-Series Bravia TV line-up has just been priced. And despite the brand’s pedigree, they’re looking very reasonable priced, starting at an affordable £550.
Looking first at the high-end W905A, available in 55, 46 and 40-inch sizes, it starts at £1,400 and offers “Triluminous Display” LED backlighting for improved colour reproduction, 800Hz motion processing, Active 3D support and a long-duct speaker system for improved bass – a regular bug-bear of flatscreen TVs. NFC content sharing from select mobile devices is also supported.
The W805 and W807 series are next, in 55, 47 and 42-inch sizes. They drop the Triluminous tech, opt for 400Hz motion processing and use passive 3D tech, but retain the NFC sharing options, starting at £1,000.
Finally, the entry level W653 and W654 models, which start at £550. They drop 3D support and NFC tech, and come with 200Hz motion processing.
All the above TVs are web-connected, with access to Sony’s Entertainment Network for movie rentals and catch-up TV services.
“Sony continues to deliver pioneering technologies to consumers, providing superb picture quality with rich, vibrant images that bring TV to life,” said Chris Trewhitt, Product Marketing Manager TV, Sony UK
“This year, Sony lends its unique audio technologies to the television line, along with engaging experiences such as One-touch mirroring that instantly lets viewers show content from select NFC-enabled phones to the big screen. We invite consumers to go into stores and see it with their own eyes.”
