Sony Bravia EX523 Review

We’ve just finished our tests on the Sony Bravia EX523, and we’re glad to say that it produces a great quality picture for a reasonable price.


After testing the Sony Bravia 55EX723 TV, it’s time for us to take a look at the new Bravia EX523, which replaces last year’s EX603.   It features a PVA display manufactured by Samsung-Sony, backlit with  lateral LEDs.  Other than that, the feature list is pretty short.   There’s no support for 3D or motion interpolation, called Motionflow on  Sony’s other TVs.  We tested the 40” version, but it’s also available  in both 32” and 46”.


Accurate colours in Expert mode: average deltaE of 2.4

Excellent contrast ratio: 4017:1

Matte finish doesn’t suffer from reflections

Low energy consumption: 77 W


No motion interpolation

Viewing angles too narrow

Media player doesn’t support enough video formats

Display less responsive than average

Clouding on our test unit



The Sony EX523 is an entry-level LED TV with a great picture quality.  All that’s missing is support for 3D and motion interpolation.
