Read full Sony KDL-46HX853 review
Some people might find this an odd entry in a ‘budget TV roundup’. After all, it’s actually Sony’s new flagship 46in TV. But there’s method to our apparent madness. Here’s the thing: the 46HX853 produces simply the best pictures we’ve ever seen from an LCD TV. Yet at around £1400, it’s considerably cheaper - by as much as £500 - than the equivalent rivals from LG, Samsung and Panasonic. Which by our maths makes it a steal for anyone who still thinks a TV’s first job should be to produce brilliant pictures.
