Televisions.com Reviews the Sony KDL-52 Z 5800
Televisions.com, the web’s leading TV reviews and feedback platform has today published its review of the Sony KDL-52 Z 5800, a 52 inch Full HD LCD TV available since autumn 2009. The website also features background articles, latest TV news and reviews from leading experts and user feedback.
TV reviews then goes on to describe the state-of-the-art features of the TV. The multimedia capabilities of the 52 Z 5800 include a USB port for image, music and video playback; and a network port allowing the playback of media from the internet. The test team was especially impressed with the universal tuner as this was the first time that a Japanese manufacturer had incorporated such capabilities into a TV set. Channel navigation for cable and terrestrial signals is good but the satellite reception provides a list of channels that can get a little confusing. The “Scene AV mode” should be set to “Cinema” mode as recommended by the test team to get the most detail rich picture with superb, contrast rich, digital picture. The brightness of the screen is equally great in dark as well as bright environments and the signals. Standard definition signals process excellently via HDMI. The default activated “Overscan” should be switched for fine detail reproduction. The test team was impressed with the impressive contrast ratio of 3000:1 which was exceptional for an LCD TV without local dimming. The review recommends switching off the “Motionflow” technology to give the picture authentic, cinema style, 24p judder. Viewing angle dependence is a hitch with Sony but with the rest of the great features it kind of dulls in comparison. The sound of the Sony KDL-52 Z 5800 from its speakers is good especially for music but speech sounds a little distraught as the speakers don’t point towards the listeners. The review then provides a set of ideal settings for the TV that were derived by the test team at the in-house test theatre which were especially for HDTV/Blu-Ray signals via the HDMI interface. Friedrich said: “The Sony KDL-52 Z 5800 is an expensive buy but with its excellent features is worth every penny you spend on it.”
