The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Review Reg Hardware has already done an in-depth review of the KDL-EX703 here - it’s a compact and good-looking set with LED edge lighting.

Setup is straightforward, and the remote is fairly easy to use – though the power button on the bottom is a curious quirk, and I found the Home button in particular far too easy to hit by mistake, instead of ‘down’.

Like your US dramas? Five’s on demand service comes to the Sony sets

The HD picture is excellent, and even at this screen size you can tell the difference. And unlike the first generation of connected Sony TVs, there’s a decent range of content available too, including LoveFilm, Demand 5 and other services. There are online audio options available too, which is something many other manufacturers don’t bother with.

However, personally I find the XMB interface horrible, especially when you want to delve into some of the deeper settings options. And it’s annoying that you have to do that to choose either TV speakers, or optical output – you can’t have both, so late night viewing needs a fair bit of tinkering.

Probably one of the clearest EPGs, with no nonsense or clutter

DLNA support is, sadly, still limited, with only MPEG 2 video playing back, and AAC audio needing to be transcoded – even though you can play a wider range of content through the TV's USB port.

Verdict

A very good picture, and some decent UK-centric online video content boost this set, but DLNA support is not really up to par. ®
