Sony KDL-43W805C review

 Review: July 2015  

Last updated October 2015

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: The 43-inch version of Sony's W80C range offers a superb viewing experience, and an attractive, slimline design. Benefits include low lag times, making it ideal for PS4 gaming, plus Android TV with a wide choice of apps and content available. Having said that, Sony's slow roll-out of Android is giving us cause for concern.



You may think that 43 inches is a weird size for a TV, and it is. It may even make you a little nervous. What was Sony thinking? And yet, think rationally about it, and 43 inches is better than 42 inches. It's bigger - about 5% bigger by screen area - and that's got to be good. Think of it as a 42-inch TV with a bonus, and try not to worry about it being weird.

The Sony KDL-43W805C is a 43-inch version of the 50-inch W805C that we previously reviewed, and everything we wrote in that review applies here too.

The 43-inch models come in 3 colour options - the black frame and silver stand of the 43W805C, the silver frame and stand of the 43W807C, and the black frame and dark chrome stand of the 43W809C. They cost about the same, and we suggest you shop around for the best deal.
