Good points:
The sound is fantastic
Bad points:
The guide appears to be internet driven and lags seems slow rather than just the normal guide you get on freeview they have added pictures in and it just seems very slow to bring the guide up.

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

With astonishing high definition picture quality, immersive surround sound audio and full online connectivity, the Sony BRAVIA KDL42W654ASU Smart 42” LED TV brings you outstanding home entertainment.

Pin-sharp picture

With Sony’s X-reality picture technology, on-screen images are rendered in perfect, lifelike detail that will enhance your every viewing – almost like a window onto a wider world. Get lost in clearer, sharper and more believable TV picture quality with Sony’s pioneering technology.

Details pop out at you with crisp definition to immerse you in every movie, documentary and sports event. The high contrast ratio makes for clearer-looking night scenes with subtler layers of light and dark elements – it makes viewing easier and delicate movements more noticeable.

The KDL42 also matches real-world colours, exhibiting a wide spectrum from vibrant and vivid hues to delicately detailed tones and shadings. It will enhance documentaries, epic films, video games and more. Able to keep up with even the fastest athlete’s movements, the TV incorporates Motionflow XR technology, specially designed for smoother and more natural fast on-screen motion.

Cutting-edge sound is delivered through two 8 W speakers, bolstered by an impressive array of audio enhancement technology including Signal-to-Sound Architecture, Bass Ref Box Speaker, Reflector, Invisible Speaker, S-Force Front Surround 3D, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Pulse.

Smart functionality

As well as its expanded viewing window, the Sony BRAVIA W654ASU brings you the best movies, music, games, apps and more directly from the internet – all at the touch of a button. Wirelessly connecting to all your devices, it lets you take full advantage of your favourite content.

Integrated WiFi marks the way forward for this TV, letting it connect to other devices for easy access to your collections of music, pictures, videos and more.

The Sony Entertainment Network is on hand to keep you surprised and entertained, facilitating streaming of HD movies, a plethora of songs, TV channels, a full web browser and popular apps like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Skype.

Select your favourites from a massive selection of instant entertainment that includes catch-up TV, full TV series and brand new movies.

Jaw-dropping connectivity

You’ll also be able to use your smartphone or tablet as a remote control – the Media Remote app for iPhone, Android and tablet lets you control all the functions of your Sony BRAVIA KDL42W654ASU HD TV and other Sony devices, as you search for catch-up shows, look for songs or even treat it like a trackpad for smoother web surfing.

Wirelessly mirror your smartphone screen on your TV to share videos, photos and more, super-sizing items with wired mirroring. Connect your smartphone to the TV via the USB port to view content, and then use your phone to swipe, enlarge, move and select content for all to see.

Use the Catch and Throw feature in the Media Remote app to rapidly send web pages from your phone to your TV, and back. You can also locate a photo or video on your smartphone and swipe your finger to ‘throw’ it onto the TV screen.

Economical performance

Made by energy-efficient processes and featuring power-saving technology, the 42” BRAVIA KDL-42-W654-ASU Smart LED TV saves you energy and money.

The set raises and lowers backlight brightness just where it’s needed on-screen to save energy and deliver higher contrast than regular LED TVs. Dynamically edge-lit, local or frame dimming adjust brightness according to content for powerful static contrast.

Scene Optimised Energy Saving adjusts LED backlight timing and level for the optimum viewing settings and image quality, providing energy savings of up to 30% compared to normal viewing.

Slim and beautiful

With its slim form, the BRAVIA 42” KDL42-W654ASU LED TV demonstrates a new way to merge your television with your living room.

Airy and light, it merges top-quality materials with seamless edges. This TV boasts a form defined by sleek lines, a slim yet durable Gorilla Glass screen, smoothly integrated sound systems, a six-degree tilt and beautifully contrasted anti-reflective glass and brushed aluminium.

This minimalistic design lets you see more picture and less frame, and the clean and tidy brushed steel easel legs both complement the TV’s style and perfectly support it – even letting you tilt it back and forth or swivel it left and right for the best viewing angle. Get the cinematic picture from your living room with the Sony BRAVIA KDL42W654ASU Smart 42” LED TV.
