Sony EX523 series Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Todd (Penabrew?) with a review of the Sony EX523. If you're looking for a television then $1000 is a real sweet spot at the moment and there are plenty of excellent television to be had to be price. The Sony EX523 comes in 3 different sizes a 32 inch, 40 inch and a 46 inch and all can be had for under a grand online. The EX523 is a replacement for the 520 which came out earlier in 2011 and the main difference is the TV has on board WiFi as a result to 523 comes with all of the internet content that Sony control (??). You get premium services like Netflix, Joloplus and Amazon plus many others. Sony design haven't changed much from last year and the EX is still looking with it's metal gray finish but hardly eye catching for the price the (??) Sony LED is able to get decent picture quality straight out of the box provided that you use to cinema preset. You'd side by side with a 3d carrying EX720, we found it well the 523, was actually cheaper. It has a the (??) of picture of the 2 but slightly better black label. The TV does fall down though in 2 ways. With our review model showing some of the worst backlight (??) we've seen in a while and black for more blue than actually black in both performance and price. This TV sits in the middle of the pack but if you're looking for a TV for a bedroom or second room. This could be a good option. This is the entire penal review with the Sony EX523 television.
With a full suite of interactive features as well as solid picture quality, the Sony KDL-W5100 series might be worth the higher price to streaming video fans.
Though the multimedia-friendly Sony Ericsson S710a has a solid feature set and an alternative design, it doesn't come together as well as it could.
The Sony S-Series Walkman is a solid entry-level MP3 player thanks to its ultraaffordable price tag, easy-to-use design, excellent performance, and fair smattering of features--but those who are looking to upgrade from the previous Walkman generation will not be impressed with this gen.
The Sony E-Series Walkman offers a compact design, a nice screen, and a handful of desirable features for a reasonable price.
Sony's EX640 series is one of the better deals from the company, with decent picture quality and features for the price.
The Sony Mylo Communicator 2 is a huge improvement over its predecessor, but the Wi-Fi handheld will have a hard time competing with the similarly priced and better featured iPhones, Sidekicks, and Helio Oceans of the cellular world.
LG's PK950 series plasma TV competes well against the picture quality of flagship models from other manufacturers.
Sony's high-end KDL-XBR9 series of LCD TV offers a bundle of extras and solid picture quality, but the price will turn off most buyers.
The Panasonic DVD-LS83 is a solid-performing portable DVD player, though you may be able to find a similar player for a cheaper price.
Though not the most attractive mobile, the Sony Ericsson Z500a has plenty of features to entertain. It's a solid performer, too.
Sony Bravia KDL-46EX523 Review
The good: The Sony KDL-EX523 series is relatively inexpensive for an LED-based LCD TV. It delivered decent black-level depth and very good video processing, including the ability to handle 1080p/24 sources. Its cinema preset provides decently accurate pictures out of the box. Sony's automatic turn-off feature saves power and its matte screen reduces glare in brighter rooms. The TV has solid Internet services, including built-in Wi-Fi, numerous niche videos, and exclusive Qriocity and Gracenote.
The bad: The Sony television exhibits murky shadow detail and blue tinge in dark areas. Uniformity is a problem with large gray splotches across black screens.
The bottom line: The Sony EX523 series produces a solid though workmanlike picture at a price that competes well against similarly featured LED TVs.
