KDL-43W800F from Sony – Presentation of this Full HD

Sony ranks among the important actors on the television market, and proposes with this KDL-43W800F, an interesting screen tested by our Laboratory.
First, the size : 43 inches on this device.
Corresponding to the majority of the televisions sizes available on the market, the engineers have nevertheless used their expertise to obtain a remarkable finish.
This television is delivered with a  Full HD resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of Sony have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Has the Sony succeeded in the challenge of an efficient television set. This is what we are going to see just after .

KDL-43W800F from Sony – Design

Sober but in line with current trends. Sony has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
No revolution concerning the aesthetics of this KDL-43W800F. We are in line with market standards. At least we know what we’re buying: a television set.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
This Sony KDL-43W800F is simply flat.
With its glass surface of 43 inches, As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Ultra Slim Metal Design technology.
This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!

The screen of the Sony KDL-43W800F

The display of this KDL-43W800F is handled with care. This will allow connoisseurs to enjoy a quality rendering in home theater mode. The colours are faithful and deep black.
With this new model, Sony confirms one of its technological choices. The use of the Edge-LED, even though it is a Edge-LED known for the lower quality of its image illumination, which has been favoured for this KDL-43W800F.

With regard to the display, the company proposes a Full HD resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
In addition, with a screen of 43 inches, the KDL-43W800F is positioned in the range of models, in the average.At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
Designed with a frequency of 120 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
Finally, Sony has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an Full HD image quality .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

KDL-43W800F from Sony – The sound

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the KDL-43W800F still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two loudspeakers with 10 W at output.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The KDL-43W800F Sony is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

It has almost become a habit for Sony, this KDL-43W800F has its operating system Android 5.0.2 Lollipop installed; it allows you to explore a whole universe of entertainment.
You will also be able to access the Internet, either through your Wi-Fi connection, or for the most geek among you via the LAN; you will then be able to download a whole bunch of applications and movies.

It is with 12 possible connections that this KDL-43W800F is presented. The Sony KDL-43W800F is thus at the very top of its range. The choices offered by its connections are simply enormous.
