Sony Bravia KDL26EX302U 26-Inch Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV – Far too basic

I needed a replacement television and decided to get a sony television and haven’t been disappointed. Firstly it looks fantastic and is solidly built and sturdy. Most importantly is that the sound and picture quality is perfect: deep, rich colours and excellent picture detail and contrast, with equally impressive bass and surround sound. Overall, i’m genuinely really chuffed with my new 26-inch sony lcd television and pleased that i purchased a tv from a brand that is highly respected by both industry and consumers alike.

I live in a bad freeview area therefore there is no point paying extra for freeview hd build in televisions. I already have a freesat hd box so that transmits at 1080i and this tv can display the picture in glorious quality. The bezel is very neat with the two tone colour adding a bit of interest. Picture is great and there is loads of flexibility with 4 hdmi connections and usb slots. Not sure why scart sockets are ever present and i look forward to the day when that format is finally banished to technology hell. Epg quite quick, though tv takes about 30 seconds to boot up. . Agonising when you are rushing from one room to another mid programme. We have ours in a relatively big bedroom and it is perfect. Only trivial point is it has no dlna/ethernet and only 50hz refresh rate. But then i knew that when i bought it and the price is a lot cheaper than tv’s with those features.

So far, it hasn’t let me down. Great colour, good make, stylish and it’s fantastic. There was no guarantee, it was missing.

Nice telly, easy to set up, good picture. We live in the sticks so we don’t receive digital yet so i don’t know if the digital is ok. But up to now very satisfied.

Bought this tv for second room, chose sony as we have been very pleased with larger bravia. Straightforward set up, bit of tweaking required to get colour settings as desired and voila, a great little telly. It has lost a star because the silver grey band along the bottom is really quite distracting.

This tv arrived really quickly and was easy for me to set up on my own. (i am quite a mature lady of bus pass age) i love the picture and colour and all the features. I only have a small living room so the size of the set is right for me. I realise there were cheaper sets around but i am pleased i bought sony and very satisfied with my purchase.

  • Sound choice for the confused!
  • Perfect if you already have a HD Source
  • Sony strikes again

Bought this sony tv for the library as our old crt tv blewup. This new tv is great very easy to set up and i didnt adjust picture or sound as it was just fine. I read some reviews previous to buying it some comments i felt were unjustified, viewing angle is perfectly acceptable and the manual on screen is fine, also on this 26” the stand does not tilt thats why the other chap couldnt.

This packaged set was easy to assemble ie attachment of its stand and very easy to get working using its auto-tune. The picture is very clear and the sound is better than most sets i have used in the past. I am very satisfied with it and can recommend it.

I had to downgrade from my 32 inch sony because of small new space but i am not regrating. I adore that tele as i do my iphone. Hope i made it clear how cool is that product and amazon servicelunik.

My husband and i have a 3 year old sony bravia 26 inch tv, with which we are very pleased. On this basis, we bought my mother-in-law a kdl26ex302. Our current tv has a comprehensive manual; however, the new kdl26ex302 model only comes with a much briefer version, probably because of its more limited capabilities. For example, with our older 26in bravia, it is possible to set up the dvd recording of a television programme directly from the electronic programme guide, with a couple of easy button clicks on the remote control. The newer kdl26ex302 does not have this highly desirable function. In fact, we’re still not sure how to record digital programmes (using a sony dvd recorder) on the non-terrestrial channels, or whether it is even possible. Called sony to ask if we were doing something wrong. The technical assistant, though pleasant, was less than useless. Sony have skimped on the kdl26ex302.

I was looking for a tv suitable for use in a bedroom. We currently have a sony bravia in the lounge, and like it very much. All the details about the product were there to review so that we could decide and make a decision. Very quick delivery and delighted with our purchase.

00 on the following mondayit set up easily and has a very good picture. Even though we only have an old (and internal) arial, the main digital channels are fine. It is a perfect tv for our situation.

The tv was ordered from amazon and i paid for first class delivery 1-2 working days. It arrived on a saturday which was within the 2 days so i was very pleased. The tv itself was easy to set up and so far has proved to be everything i wanted. I have to say i haven’t done much with it as yet other than turn it on and watch tv. The 2 complaints i have about the tv are that you don’t get a manual. This is built electronically into the tv which is fine for those techno people but those of us who have to take things step by step are supposed to remember or sit down and write out our own instructions on how to use the tv. Thus why i haven’t done much with it other than turn it on. I can’t see that a manual would have cost them that much more. The other complaint is the remote which is an awkward shape and not at all pleasant to hold. It is very square with harsh sides – not at all like the rounded comfortable hold of my old remote.

Super fast delivery from amazon bearing in mind the christmas rush which has caused problems this year. The quality of the picture is excellent and the ability to use a usb device is very useful. Extremely good value for the price i paid for it – took about 25 minutes to set up as i found the assembly of the stand slightly tricky. Other than that, no problems and performed very well over the christmas period.

The picture is excellent, and although it takes a while to ‘boot up’, everything is very user-friendly and responsive. Despite diagrams in the printed handbook showing that you can adjust the vertical angle of the screen from the base, i was unable to do this, and the screen is set at a rigid 90 degree angle from the base and the lowish table that the set is on. I’ve had to put a strip of carpet under the front of the base to get the screen angle correct to be viewed from the sofa i tried the sony website, faq’s – nothing about the setting up of the screen on the base at all.

Bought this to replace a sadly dropped crt set. I don’t think that lcd sets do too well with standard definition content and this sony is no exception. It also suffers from the boxy sound caused by the current vogue for downward firing speakers. In nearly all other respects it is first rate. Well built with a stable stand and a steel stem for the stand. My big gripe is that the set up menus cover half the picture which makes seeing the effect that changing picture settings have almost impossible. Sony make updated firmware (tvs operating system) available from their website which panasonic do not. I would suggest turning off picture noise reduction and a couple of dubious sounding picture enhancement settings off for best results.

Great picture and sound, good epg in that it keeps sound on current station while you explore (unlike previous panasonic)looks good and is perfect size (26′)for bedroom.

The hardware was fine and on the whole was setting up. The colour was good and the range of viewing angles is good, but not quite as wide as the panasonic. Overall it was easy to use, my only real gripe, which may apply to other modern televisions, is that the paper manual only covers basic set up. An on screen manual covers the rest. I had a bit of a problem finding out how to access a usb memory stick which was not helped by having to flick backwards and forwards from the menu to the manual. However once i understood how the menus work it was straight forward. Viewing photos was an important feature for me. A really nice feature was that the full folder structure on a usb memory stick was retained, unlike some tvs which take sd cards and all folder structure is ignored.

I’m fairly happy with the television, but it’s far from perfect. The picture quality is excellent and sound quality is good for a small tv. Though i have a satellite service it’s good that it has freeview built-in. But the positioning of the manual controls is rather annoying. Being placed around the back of the tv, it means i have to use them by touch only. My biggest criticism, however, is that it takes ages to switch on, even from standby. The lag is so much longer than my last tv.

Very pleased with this sony, purchased for my kitchen. Picture quality is excellent. The light sensor function is relly good, it really works (i thought that it was just a gimmick). It adjusts the colour of the vision dependant on the light source entering the room. My only niggle is that when switched on it takes a few seconds to warm up and a sony logo comes up first which i find annoying. Other than that an excellent buy.

We love this tv it’s just the right size for us, and the viewing is perfect and price was great.

This tv has fantastic picture quality – with some lcds the picture looks dark when viewing from certain angles, but no matter what angle you are viewing from, the picture on the sony bravia is crystal clear. The tv was easy to set up, and overall we are super happy with it. It was great value for money.

This tv was delivered swiftly and works well. We have suffered picture break up occasionally since digital switch over but hopefully that will settle shortly.

I bought this tv following another recent purchase for a samsung. It was easy to compare the two – the samsung won. The sony bravia does not have as many picture or sound modes as the samsung, the sound is a bit tinny, the screen doesn’t swivel and the freeview programme doesn’t allow you to pre-schedule a programme you want to watch. Definitely inferior to samsung but it’s ok.

Great tv, connected to our bt vision box via scart. Excellent picture very pleased with the bravia image. Upgrading from a sony crt and this was an excellent buy.

As one would expect from sony, this a great tv with a fantastic picture and great sound. And, if properly set-up, it has incredible responsiveness and source flexibility. But therein lies the rub for the tv is entirely let down by the appalling lack of information in the box and available on the sony website. In the box there is a set-up manual that describes wiring the tv in and a booklet euphemistically entitled ‘operating instructions. ‘ this includes start-up instructions but for full information about using the tv with the remote the only instruction is to use the onscreen ‘i-manual. ‘ needless to say, if you want to change anything on the tv this is useless unless you have a very good memory or take notes. There is a full manual on the sony website but that is not easy to get to — make sure you make an exact note of your model number before trying. Although this pdf contains all the information that should have been in the box, it is clearly not for printing out. The format is landscaped a4 with a strip of white containing a few lines of text on a black background. The manual runs to 83 pages.

After looking at other brands for months both online and in showrooms i bought this in time for the world cup to replace a very good but aging phillips 20′ lcd. The set took about ten minutes to unpack, plug-in, hook-up and switch on. I didn’t have to fiddle with the settings to get a great picture or sound, just turn dynamic and surround sound on, tweak the backlighting and contrast down a little to my taste and hey presto – a great tv. The unit is not much bigger than the 20′ it replaces and is extremely light but feels solid and well built. The on-screen menu is very detailed and with many options but easy to use and navigate. I don’t regret this purchase at all and would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a quality lcd by a respected manufacturer at a very good price.

Bought the sony kdl26ex302u after weeks of research and a visit to a sony and a panasonic shop. I am totally blown away with it. The new sleek look and amazing picture quality surely takes it to top spot in the ‘budget’ main make tv war. Installation took 10 minutes and freeview quality is excellent. Would recommend this tv without hesitation.

This was bought for the bedroom, because my wife felt a 32inch panel would be too big. The set sits on a chest of drawers and does not dominate the room. It is linked up to a dvd player and virgin cable tv box. Great television, in the mould we have come to expect from sony. This is 720p/1080i in performance, so not the highest specification but, in the role we have it, this provides an excellent colour pallette, crisp sound and a warm image. Great delivery, too – next day.

I bought this because i already have a sony lcd which is great, and sony have a great name with tv’s. It also looks very different to the typical black box looking tv’s. I am totally satisfied with this tv, it looks great, and the picture quality is spot on. The on screen menu is easy to use. The auto set-up is faultless, and very easy to use. The only minor gripe is the remote control, where there are 2 rows of of circular controls, which make it easy to press the wrong button.

Delivered satisfyingly quickly (next working day on standard free delivery) – well done amazon again. The picture is better than the crt set it replaced. Easy to set up: the hardest part is screwing on the stand and that was easy enough. The tuning was completely automatic for analogue, digital and the accessory boxes, putting the stations in order as well. Better sound than i expected through the internal speakers, works best when set to dynamic and surround sound. There is a few seconds pause when you first switch it on, perhaps as the backlight gets up to colour temperature, then a sony logo pops up with a chime – some people might find this irritating and it can’t be prevented. It doesn’t annoy me at all as it’s fairly subtle. Sony are still tops when it comes to tv’s.

Brought tv to go in kitchen and we are very pleased so far with picture quality and soundbecause it has freview we also have the benefit of the radio channels.

This is my third sony tv and have had good and long service out of my previous two. This model is excellent quality like my others. Easy to set up,built in freeview and brilliant picture quality. Hd ready and good sound, remote is user friendly and well laid out. It has four hdmi inputs so it’s no problem connecting dvd player and sky box etc. Have never had any faults with my sony tv’s and i am very pleased with this one.

But, confusion reigned, as we thought hd ready meant we would be able to receive hd channels. Upon looking at which website re this issue/definition (no pun intended) – we discover that there is confusion as to what hd actually means. Confusion; even between manufacturers.Some who say hd ready in their descriptions means there is a hd tuner built in – some who claim to be hd ready but are only suitable for hd devices – such as a set top box, or sky. Or even hd hardware plugged into tv. In other words they will not be hd just through a digital aerial. Looks like we may have to up grade our tv in future by purchasing a set top box – or go without hd channels that may come on line in the future – and therefore miss outit seems there needs to be a universal definition for what hd ready means.

Picture quality and sound is superb. Lots of connections so the kids games kit, dvd, etc all connected so easily. Out of the box and working in 10 mins – great. My only niggle would be the gloss surround that can cause reflections at times but that’s all.

Ordered tuesday morning, arrived wednesday morning, amazing. I’m delighted with this set. Had it unpacked and running in 15 minutes. Picture and sound is excellent. Size is perfect for a small room.

In general i found it to have good picture quality, although, this falls off when viewed from an angle. The sound quality could be better with the set reverberating on lower frequencies when the volume is turned up. But, in an age of fast electronic function, it is so slow both when turning it on and in channel change. In my innocence, ‘hd ready’ means only ready with the proper tuner.

Just received this tv to replace a slightly older model. It was easy to set up and the picture’s fine. But i really wonder why the einsteins in the sony design department think it makes sense to have downward-facing speakers under the set instead of putting them on the front. The result is that you have to crank up the volume, bounce it off whatever the tv is standing on and fill the room with sound if you want to hear the tv ok. Even then, speech sounds muffled. Of course, it’s great if you want to listen to the tv when sitting behind it. But i, like most people, generally put my tv against a wall and tend to prefer watching it when i can see what’s going on on the screen, ie by sitting in front of it. I also prefer not to send sound through the walls to other rooms, particularly when the kids are trying to sleep. I fear i’ll have to invest in external speakers.

Still in use after all this time – menu can be confusing though.

This is the third sony bravia i have bought. After being very pleased with the first one i decided only to buy ‘bravia’ in future. This is mainly to do with the excellent sound quality they have — a necessary feature for people like me with a hearing problem.

Sony Bravia KD43XE8004 43 inch TV – Good Picture But YouView doesn’t work

Great service, excellent product, easy to set up.

Good tv use pc monitor and dont have lags or issues.

I have an lg oled in the lounge, and bought this for my study (or den as my wife calls it) where i link ps4 pro, bluray and cable to it. I sit really close and the picture is amazing – just watching game of thrones and the colours and image are luscious – in fact its hard to see a difference with the oled though appreciate blue-ray is not 4k. Thats being said, netflix from the ps4 is in 4k for shows like jessica jones and looks amazing. The interface / hub is ok but not very intuitive and quite clunky, so i play netflix and youtube through the ps4. In fact i think the sony built-in apps are not 4k so another reason to use the ps4 – though you have to use the right hdmi input to get 4k. One other point is don’t obscure the sensor which is in the middle below the screen. I had the ps4 camera there and was just about to return the tv, as i could not for love for money get the remote control to work. By luck i moved the camera, and hey presto, the remote sensor was being obscuredoverall, a great tv, though i see the price has gone up considerably since the start of the year.

Superb in every way, clarity, colour and sound,bags of features to boot treat yourself.

Use it as a pc monitor for web design and video editing, crystal clear and no eyestrain anymoremaybe not what it was made for, but would recommend, quality, quality, quality.

Brilliant tv, does exactly what it say in the tin .

  • Best TV out there for the price.
  • Top A**** product!
  • Looking for something to spoil yourself with, get one of these!

1st one i ordered had a shadow down the screen on the left. Sent it back, replacement ok.

The android tv is the best tv for me. 4k is truly amazing just watching the slow mo guys videos is a good enough reason for me to get this one.

Best tv i have owned thus far, picture quality is great and an absolute dream to navigate the interface. The android operating system gives plenty of choice of apps and suchlike, couple this tv with a good soundbar and your in business.

I bought this because of the reviews and i wasn’t dissapointed superb picture sound ok could be better the smart part is really good and it is fairly easy to set up i don’t know how long this will be on sale for but if you find one buy it.

Excellent tv at a good price. Lots of features which can make it a bit more difficult to operate until you are used to them. Picture and sound quality very good and when connected to my sony sound system provides a great immersive experience. At the discounted price i paid, it was a steal.

Picture quality is virbrant and fantastic for sports as near zero motion blur.

‘live football mode’ looks incredible. Don’t stick with factory picture settings. The blacks arn’t absolutely inky-black in the same way an oled tv would be – but considering the tech, relatively little light-bleed. For it’s price (which i consider mid-range) you get a great picture – you’ll get jealous of your mates 65′ oled until you realise he’s £2000 more out of pocket. Speakers are just about acceptable for telly, but if you’re a movie buff, 2*10 watts won’t cut it.

Great product, awesome service by amazon when i contacted about a missing part.

If your looking for a tv to fully show of your xbox one x.

The picture quality is good enough but youview, doesn’t work, and it’s the only way you can get some apps , such as on demand tv from channel 4 (all4).

I bought this tv as it is 4k, it is absolutely stunning and i also have a ps4 and a sony blu-ray home theatre system and the brava sync control works better than any other tv that i have had.

Immerse yourself in the brilliance of 4K HDR. Incredible contrast, real-life colours and exceptional 4K detail.

Picture and sound are excellent, has many features, eg netpix app and many more, great smart tv. Has two tuners, one for freeview and second for satellite, so can be used anywhere. Well made and price, considering what you get for the money.

We are so pleased with this model of tv we were given a the heads up on this one and would recommend it to anyone thanks.

As expected of sony products.

I love the amount of apps you can put on it.

Sony make the best tvs in the business in my humble opinion. Poor sound, but it’s a given these ultra thin tvs require separate speakers.

Excellent value, image, sound and usability. Clear image decent android os and brilliant image as you would expect from sony. Decent for prime video, netflix, youview, catch-up youtube, and xbox, i haven’t had a single issue with this tv and absolutely love it.

Sound processing : ClearAudio+. 4K X-Reality PRO. Every detail re-imagined.

Massive size, beautiful colour clarity and impeccable sound. I actually purchased two (thank the lord for sales) as me and my fiancé have what we call a gaming station. As we both play computer games quite often, we like to do so even when together.

Brilliant television with great clarity on the picture.

Sony Bravia KD43XF8096BU 43-Inch Android 4K HDR Ultra HD TV – Great quality picture and sound

Coming from an old sony hd tv (one of the first hd tvs to come out 720p 32′) and over 10 years old but still worked as well as the day i got it which is why i decided to stick with sony and i’m so glad i did the 4k picture is unreal so sharp and the colours so bright and being an android tv takes it to a totally different level i’ve seen other makes that have there own app stores with only there own apps and couldn’t get on with them but this is just like using your phone/tablet and i don’t know how i’ve gone this long with out one had heard stories that the sound on these new slim bezel tvs isn’t that good and to be honest it could be better but it’s still as good as any other tv i’ve owned was a little worried about it being 4k as i thought i’d have to buy a 4k bly ray player or subscribe to some over priced satellite package but was really surprised as you can buy and download or stream the newest films out infact with the purchase it lets you pick out two films to keep for good to start your collection and in 4k and also being an amazon prime and netflix subscriber there’s a good collection of content in 4k to pick from too so all in all i’m so happy i picked this tv and i don’t think you could tempt me with any other one out there in this price range so if your thinking of going for this one don’t think anymore just go ahead and get it oh and one more thing i also picked this one to work with an amazon echo plus and had a few teething problems at first but now it turns it on and over and the volume up and down and changes the hdmi channels too.

Took delivery of this a few days ago. The picture quality is absolutley stunning and the sound quality is good once set up correctly. The design is top notch as you would expect from sony and i can’t fault the android system – i’ve had no speed issues as some have mentioned. What is really frustrating is the limitations of the inbuilt youview system. You have a choice of either disabling youview and being able to record channels onto hdd, but not being able to access itv player or all 4. Or enabling youview and being able to access them, but losing the ability to recordit seems like a major oversight/design flaw, and is not mentioned anywhere before you buy. Except in online support forums which you would only find when searching for the problem specificallyoverall a great tv, just not without annoying issues.

Nice tv, sounds & pictures good.

This sony bravia is exactly what i want in a smart tv and it provides a great number of interesting movies. I am still finding new things it has.

Clear sound and fab picture with easy to use handset providing loads of options.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great Android TV, built-in Chromecast has a few hitches
  • Vibrant, fluid picture and decent sound
  • Don’t hold back my best tv to date

Couldn’t find anything to fault this tv.

Would highly recommend buying this tv.

This tv offers rich and vibrant colours and very fluid motion. Definition and detail are stunning and when watching 4k uhd content it is remarkably good for the price. The tv runs on android and has excellent smart tv functionality. The viewing angle is wide and it can be viewed from quite oblique angles and still looks good. The sound is very good for built in sound, for watching movies you may want a separate sound system with a sub-woofer but for normal tv i think the built in sound is perfectly adequate and even for movies it is ok (albeit it is not in the same league as a decent surround sound system). I got the 43′ screen for the bed room and it is incredible just what quality is available for a relatively modest budget these days, its not that long ago that a top of the line set costing £££££££’s wouldn’t get near to this. It feels a lot nicer than the cheaper entry level sets but you’re not getting high end premium materials and feel. That said, it doesn’t feel cheap or low rent.

Fantastic picture quality both hd and 4k, easy set up. Sound quality good but when used with a sony sound bar it’s brilliant. Highly recommend that you put this on your list when choosing a new tv.

When the tv arrived it was damaged in transit. Courier arrived to pick it up and a replacement arrived to ireland within 2days. I must say the costomer service was top class. This is a great all round 4 k uhd tv. Not for the sports enthusiast motion a bit blurry. Other than that general tv shows and hd movies look fab. It also comes with a 5 year warranty. It was sold by ask direct and fulfilled by amazon. I would highly recommend them for your next tv. A happy irish coustomer is all i can say.

Love the picture quality of the 4k. Sound is good for the size of the tv but never great due to how small the speakers are, will be great with soundbar. Tv looks amazing and the android tv works without issue.

Fantastic tv, easy to set up, works well with my other sony devices. Only downside is the android operating system is a bit clunky at times but barely use that really as i have virgin tv etc. Great bit of kit and looks great in out living room.

Good tv with plenty of features. There is no lag in the remote as mentioned in other reviews i have read. Easy to set up out of the box. Recommends 2 people but managed on my own. My only gripe would be the audio which sounds poor on most of the available settings that are pre loaded. Maybe i will try adjusting those to see if it improves. All in all a great bit of kit for £474.

Have had bravia tvs over the years none have disappointed. Picture crystal clear and sharp. Smart tv feature is great, sound quality is top notch. Other than that this bravia is great. One issue was the poor quality remotes they now produce which does not always work unless directly aimed at tv.

Fantastic all round tv, i have a nvidia shield android box and amp plugged into it and it runs great. The only apps that i use on the tv are bbc iplayer, itv hub and all4 and they run great. I stream a lot though my nvidia shield onto this tv and the picture quality is incredible. I bought a 4k av receiver to go with it and i have been watching football, boxing, snooker and films on it and it handles it perfectly, don’t know why people say it goes pixelated because i haven’t had any problems.

We like the bravia but not been able to sync with existing sound bar / sub and need two remote for volumes which is annoying.

Having had a sony bravia for several years, it was time for an upgrade and this tv is just that. Moving from a 37′ to a 43′ isn’t a quantum leap but the picture quality difference is very noticeable the uhdtv is very clear and the colours are vibrant. The speakers aren’t brilliant but, as i always intended to connect the tv to a sony sound system, that was never an issue and it sounds great. The remote is easy to use and the smart features work well after connecting to my wifi. All in all i am well satisfied with my sony tv.

The first tv was damaged in shipment. The second one worked for three days before the picture went out. The third and current tv seems to be working fine so far. It has a great picture quality with decent sound but could have even better sound with a sony sound bar. This tv is very “state of the art” high tech tv. It really has it all and it is truly great when it works. I might have had a lemon the first time because so far this last tv is working well – i have no complaints with it. Crossing my fingers that it stays that way.

Good sound and clear picture as i had expected.

We purchased this as our main living room tv after spending a long time reviewing what is on the market and the different costs. Having read reviews stating the picture on this model is not as good as other higher models sony have released, i was slightly put off but went with the purchase due to the significantly higher costs for the next models up and i’m so very glad i did. The quality of picture is absolutely great and i would recommend it to those looking for their main tv. Slight issues i’ve had is when using with alexa to turn the tv on. To change the volume, turn off works fine, just on. Saying that, i don’t know if the problem lies with alexa, the tv or my wifi. I didn’t purchase a sound bar and the sound quality is more than good enough for regular viewing. If you’re like me and are considering paying out more for the next models up, i’d suggest save your money and go with this tv. It is a very well equipped machine in sonys mid range.

It’s a decent size for gaming and smart features are handy. Wasn’t too much trouble to set up, the set up guide was easy to follow. Overall happy with tv and still loving after 4 months :).
