seems good

Great price and spec, Thanks op just ordered one:)

I have had the 42" of this TV for a couple of months now and can say this is definitely one of the best TVs out there for gaming. The only downside is that these TVs only have 2 HDMI ports.

It's 2014 now.

With a TV you also want 4:4:4 chroma subsampling, which this *might* have - which is what he could be referring to.

Interesting. Never thought of such things when it comes to gaming.

Input lag...

hdtvtest.co.uk/new…lag

waiting for the kdl42w829 to come down in price now

Almost 100% certain this range of TVs don't have a "PC port."

Might matter to someone? I still use VGA

It states PC Input on the list of specs although this may be referring to a dvi port rather than vga.

Heat added, cheapest i've seen this model.

Great tv for gaming, Craking picture and lowest input lag of any TV on the market. The Bravia sync settings let you use the TV remote to control the ps4/or compatible Sony bluray player, which is a great idea, Smart TV stuff is good we use Netflix on a daily basis.

I got this tv a few months back at tree hunded and fity pounds and i don't regret it.

If you want to watch MKV's (tv, film rips etc) then ignore the stated 200hz motion rate (its very dark, flickery and basically unusable), and by default you get a judderfest on panning shots etc. Just my opinion of course, but I spent a lot of time testing this set out with various footage on a memory stick. This was last year at full price though.

Heat added! I just bought one purely to hook my Wii U up to for Mario Kart on the 30th May.


Only 1 Scart socket....cold.

^ Please tell me that's a trolling. Does anyone even use SCART anymore other than for VERY old equipment like classic consoles?
Looks like a nice set, maybe make a nice bedroom TV for my new place

Does anyone know of a 32" led TV with freeview HD built in for £200? Cheers

Good deal on a great TV.

Although its very low its not the lowest going by the Leo Bodnar rating, KDL42W705 just beats it.

The original Topfield PVR, despite being SD, is still better than many things on the market after almost 10 years.

I bought the 42 inch version for £350 its a great tv for gaming

Richer Sounds will pricematch and comes with a 5 year guarantee. They also give you £5 for pricematching products upto £300. £10 for more than £300. Most towns with a store have 3-4 in stock.

sorry to hear about your parents going oos. you can have mine for a tenner each.

What connection is used for the PC Input? Can't seem to find any information on if it's VGA/DVI. Though a review on Amazon confirms it does not have VGA.

Richer Sounds states no PC input

IBM Thinkpad doesn't, or Dreamcast - but could use a VGA to HDMI adaptor I guess.

OK sub link says what you say about price match but cannot find any details as how to claim?

Literally just bought this TV yesterday from Amazon for £329 and it arrived today... can't believe it!

It's nice though. Sky HD looks about the same as it did on my old Panny, maybe a bit brighter and more vivid. I still need to calibrate it. I noticed the real difference when I switched on my PS4. Games look fantastic on it. As for the all-important input lag, it clocks in at 33ms (Leo Bodnar test) in 'game mode' which is pretty good.

Only 1 Scart socket....cold.



Why anyone these days wants more than one -if at all scart sockets is beyond me?
One can still for peanuts ( Poundland?) buy a switchable multi input scart to scart device./
