Sony Bravia KDL-55HX923 Review

After last year’s HX903, Sony’s latest flagship TV is the new HX2923.  It boasts the same monolithic design, as well as Full LED backlighting and support for 3D content using active technology.  There are several new features too, including a Motionflow XR 800 filter (400 Hz + backlight sweeping) and a dual chip X-Reality Pro image processor to improve the quality of 2D content.

Pros

Excellent picture quality in 2D and reasonable results in 3D

High contrast ratio: 3700:1 in Custom mode with dynamic backlighting

Very wide viewing angles: 4.2/5, almost as good as a plasma TV

No problems with clouding or blooming

Good quality audio and low energy consumption: 98 W

 

Cons

Glossy screen picks up reflections

Too much crosstalk in 3D

Media player doesn’t support enough video formats

 

Conclusion

The HX923 is quite simply perfect when showing 2D content, reproducing colours accurately with excellent contrast.  In fact, it’s almost as impressive as a plasma TV, with wide viewing angles and a nice even display thanks to its Full LED backlighting.  It’s a shame we can’t say the same about 3D, where there’s too much crosstalk.  We’re more than happy to stick with the incredible performance in 2D.
