Sony Bravia KDL-46HX723 Review

The Bravia KDL-46HX723 is one of Sony’s most advanced TVs to date.  Like its younger brother, the Sony Bravia KDL-55EX723, it doesn’t use the famous Monolithic design found elsewhere in the range.

On the inside, however, things are a little more exciting: the refresh rate has been doubled, giving a motion interpolation filter that runs at 400 Hz, with a base rate of 200 Hz joined by a 200 Hz backlight sweep.  Apart from that little upgrade, the two models are fairly similar.

Pros

Accurate colours in Custom mode: deltaE: 2.6

Great contrast ratio: 3760:1

Powerful motion interpolation filter

Low energy consumption: 95 W

Cons

Big problems with crosstalk in 3D

Viewing angles too narrow

Media player doesn’t support enough formats

Visible clouding on our test unit

Conclusion

The HX723 TV performs almost identically to its younger brother, the EX723.  They’re so similar, in fact, we’re not sure what the point in this new model is.  Its only real advantage is that the version we tested suffered from a little less clouding.
