Sony KDL-42W706B review

 Review: June 2014  

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: The Sony Bravia KDL-42W706B is the same as the 42W705 but with a Silver coloured bezel surrounding the screen. This emphasises the contemporary, airy design of the TV, adding an extra touch of elegance.



The W706 is a good-sized family TV at a competitive price. Picture quality is good for the price, although there's no 3D capability, and it's a highly recommended TV for gamers, due to its exceptionally low input lag. Recommended!

As people seem to be biased towards this TV... Mine is now 2 years old and is still perfect. It makes me wonder what people actually do to their things.

Sony Bravia's are by far the best TV's on the market.

Smell of burning and no screen, only 14 months old, out of warrenty. Never buy Sony, go to Aldi and get a TV wih 3 years standard warrenty.

Broke after 13 months. Phoned Sony and was told guarantee had run out and to pay for repairs myself. I would never buy another Sony TV again and would advise everyone to do the same.
