    Sony KDL-26S2010 review

    Sony's Bravia series of LCD TVs have always been welcome round our way. So, even though this 26in LCD TV puts in an extremely impressive performance, there are inevitably going to be comparisons with its relations.

    The only thing stopping us whooping for joy about the £2,200KDL-46S2010, in fact, is our concern about what the £2,000 price reduction from its predecessor translates into lost performance. But that wasn't really the case.

    In the past Sony's plasma and LCD TVs failed to impress. But recently Sony has put all its energy into making HD-ready LCDs. And the KDL-32S2010 proves this was the right decision for the Japanese giant to take.

    Let's get the grumble out of the way first. This 40-inch LCD TV may look the part with its attractive design, but the sockets aren't the final word in future proofing: only one HDMI here.

    The handsome-looking KDL-46X2000 is Sony's first 'full HD' TV. Sounds impressive, but how is that better than standard HD Ready TVs? Well, here's the technical bit: the 46X2000 sports a native pixel resolution of 1,920 x 1,080...

    As Sony's latest Bravia LCDs are genuine cutting-edge TVs, you'll understand our excitement at the arrival of the new Bravia flagship, the KDL-46X2000. If this actually betters Sony's other excellent Bravia sets, it's going to be very special indeed.

    An expensive choice if ever there was one, Sony's KDL-20S2020 needs to go some if it wants to win us over. Things don't start well - its design is disappointing, and its monotone, plasticky, grey finish and uninspired lines...

    LCD displays have come on in leaps and bounds in recent years and this 32in Sony set with built-in Freeview tuner is one example of why the days of CRT technology may finally be numbered.

    So far, every TV we've seen from Sony's three new Bravia ranges has been a resounding success. But perhaps its toughest test yet is in the shape of the smallest set in the company's lowest 'S' range...

    It took some time, but Sony is fi nally enjoying the kind of commercial success with its LCD screens that it once had with its Trinitron CRT TVs - thanks to the successful roll-out of its Bravia LCD brand.

    With standard-definition delivered with gusto and high-definition with near perfection, it's clear Sony is on fire with this year's Bravia range and in the KDL-40V2000 has produced a screen that can rightly be called a reality TV.

    Sony's debut BRAVIA range finally earned the company the sort of TV sales it has long been praying for. But how much can the new generation build on this success? The S-series models reviewed here is the entry-level set for the brand.

    It's amazing what a lick of marketing paint will do. After several years of underperforming flatscreens, and a brand name that just didn't catch fire with the global public (Wega? Vega? Vaguer?)...

    Few brands know how to make a TV look as distinctive as Sony, so it comes as no surprise that the S32A12U is eye candy of the highest order. Willy Wonka would have been proud. It lacks the chutzpah of the boldly black V32A12

    Sony has always favoured LCD technology over DLP when it comes to both front and rear projection. So it's no surprise to find it's still persevering with LCD for its latest rear-pro offering, the 50in KDFE50A12U

    Only a couple of issues ago we looked at and loved Sony's 32in LCD offering, the KDL-V32A12U. But that £1,800 price tag hardly put it within reach of the mainstream TV-buying audience. Which is where the new KDL-S32A12U comes in

    Sony's new 'Bravia' branded KDF-E50A12U is the latest in the long-running - but not particularly well-reviewed - Grand Wega line of rear-projection microdisplays. At its heart is an LCD projection engine that, in market share at least

    While we wait (and wait...) for Sony's next generation of LCD TVs, the brand's old L32M1 is still hanging on to its high street position, courtesy of a fairly drastic price cut. But will that prove enough to keep it competitive?
