The Sony KDL-55HX853BU sits at the high table of BRAVIA Full HD 3D LED TV technology and represents state of the art in various arenas of styling, picture calibre and network plus smart or internet television.

The BRAVIA KDL55HX853BU Full HD 3D LED set will immediately strike you with its monolith design; the minor tilt angle of the single sheet glass effect bezel, located in a stunning, ‘Bunchin’ table plinth stand, immediately sets it apart from other high end flat screen LED and plasma TVs on the market and the whole ensemble is as much about stunning, high tech architecture as it is premium audio visual equipment.

Building upon the major advance in picture performance ushered in by the BRAVIA X Reality (boosting standard as well as hi-def video signals,) the 55HX853 full high def LED flat screen represents another first: Sony’s OptiContrast TV screen Panel employs a specially formulated resin film which by absorbing ‘spill through’ emissions from the backlit cells and also reducing the distractive effect of room ambiences (side lights, table lamps, etc) ensures this remarkable 55 inch BRAVIA 3D TV maintains more of its innate, high contrast character, resulting in visibly higher black levels, crisper white production and superior colouration: even when not in use, the mirrored screen effect blends superbly with the TV frame’s monolith appearance to uplift any domestic decor, modern or traditional.

The superlative Sony KDL-55HX853 Full HD 3D TV’s manifest of picture processing wizardry does not end here, however: the HX853 chassis incorporates another process known as ‘local dimming’ which is a technique for extra flexible control of the backlight so during dingier film sequences, for example, specific areas of screen are dimmed more to improve the subjective and technical black level and contrast ratio.

On top of the low power consumption inherent within such high efficiency, LED units,* the 55HX823 Full 1080P Smart BRAVIA television promises best in class movement processing via the astonishing, smear eliminating 800Hertz XR scanner within the backlight and the result is movies that look like film proper and high octane sports action delivered without the digitised ‘artefacts’ often seen to plague lesser branded LCD based designs.

Along with a 4 times quad speed 3D processor which individually tailors each frame in a movie upon the KDL-55HX853’s Full Hi-Def LED screen, so optimising even more the perceived contrast and brightness to allow incredibly realistic, clear pictures and auto 3D reduces viewers’ visual stress by making sure the depth of the 3D’s field effect is not overwhelming (again which certain manufacturers favour to initially ‘blow away’ consumers but which ultimately, is an unsatisfying approach to a comfortable 3D experience.)

Anyone researching 3D will have concluded the active, progressive format is the experts’ choice and true to form the BRAVIA KDL55HX853 obliges with this more immersive, full high definition, 1920 x 1080 pixel rendition of the 3D approaches (requires any of the matching, active TDG prefixed model no 3D eyewear.)

Lastly regarding the KDL-55HX853BU BRAVIA LED TV’s 3D, special mention must be made of the X Reality PRO upgrade; in addition to the standard X Reality treatment of colours, contrasts, outlines and textures which sharpens all on screen images (including the rendering of SD to a more HD recognisable quality,) this super system has been especially formulated with the immersive excitement of 3D in mind and has been designed to deliver best ever realism for facial and skin pigment creation – Sony are suggesting this could be their greatest contribution to motion picture processing, to date – certainly, it would be a bold individual to contest that conviction.

Unsurprisingly, Sony’s supreme BRAVIA Full HD, LED flat screen takes no chances regarding network, online video or other ‘smart’ TV operations.

Built-in Wi-Fi with the KDL-55HX853BU Full 3D Internet TV equates to clean, fuss free web access using a domestic routing base and wire free streams to and from any room may proceed.

Sony BRAVIA has an Entertainment Network protocol to cover all these operational areas, whether engaging the default social media (e.g. twitter,) downloading all manner of video, music and otherwise (e.g. you tube) or complete movies, even in high definition (e.g. Love Film,) the 55HX853BU proffers an appropriate App on the TV’s display to cater for your every need.

For charge free (video) communication, the Skype app is a boon (especially for international contacts) and the browser App effectively transforms the KDL55HX853 smart LED set into a fully high definition monitor, covering web surf duty or perhaps clicking through to the Sony Remote App to convert almost any smart unit (phone and tablets, alike) to the TV’s primary, full function remote control.

Rounding off the BRAVIA KDL-55HX853BU’s exceptional value for money quotient, we find the Sony HX853 series High Definition Television’s sophisticated, *LED dimmer, intelligently modulating the panel’s intensity of backlight emission so as to reflect varying environments’ individual level of illumination, tailoring the screen’s contrast accordingly (e.g. low settings for night time viewing.)

The range topping 55 inch BRAVIA KDL55HX853BU, Full Cinema 3D, 1080p HD, Dynamic Edge lit, locally dimmed LED TV, can be acquired at the cheapest price in the UK: simply click the best deal links (above) and revel in quite probably the best performing, most stunning, high end Sony LED for considerably less than you might have expected.
