Sony Bravia KDL-46NX723 LED TV Review

Flushed with the success of the HX923, Sony is back in our lab today with its NX723 television.  The new model owes its stylish looks to the firm’s monolithic design, while on the inside it can boast support for 3D and a Motionflow XR 200 filter, with a 100 Hz refresh rate and backlight sweeping.  Its LCD display has Edge LED backlighting around the outside of the screen and online services are provided via the Qriocity platform.

The design remains relatively unchanged compared to last year, but there’s a new amplified stand available as an optional extra.  On its own, the monolithic frame is just 2.7 cm thick and finished with a single pane of glass in front of the LCD screen.  The whole thing looks great and benefits from an excellent build quality.  The downside is that the glass inevitably picks up reflections, so you’ll need to keep this TV away from direct light if you don’t want them to spoil the view.

 

Pros

Supports 3D

Accurate colours in Custom mode: average deltaE of 2.9

Deep blacks and excellent contrast ratio: 5630:1

Wider than average viewing angles and Motionflow XR 200 filter

Low energy consumption: 77 W

 

Cons

Big problems with crosstalk in 3D

Media player doesn’t support enough video formats

Clouding on the version we tested

 

Conclusion

The Sony NX723 TV is no better than the earlier EX723: both TVs do a great job in 2D, with accurate colour reproduction and high contrast ratios just part of the picture.  However, the NX723 suffers from too much crosstalk in 3D to deserve a fifth star.
