One of the best 42 inch TVs is this Sony KDL42W653 and this is because of the Smart TV support and of the built-in wi-fi. I would recommended this TV to someone who wants to see Blu-ray movies at the best quality possible and who wants to surf the web in the commercial breaks.
It has a very awesome price (see special price & best deal here) and a good discount. You should not forget to buy a good sound system like Sony DAVTZ140 if you have a big room.
As you can see, the design is a new one like for all the 2013 TVs. The stand has an interesting design and if you don’t like it than you can mount the TV on the wall via a wall bracket (you can easily mount the TV on a wall because Sony provides a kit for that.)
The main specs of the TV are the 42 inch screen with Full HD resolution, the software that supports web browsing and the digital tuners (has DVB-T so that you can enjoy digital television like Freeview).
The built-in media player is very good but it can’t compare with a dedicated one that can play any kind of discs and suck a player is Sony BDPS3100.
Pros and cons
I like at this model the fact that it looks great and has a lot of useful features. It’s very easy to use because the menus are made so that even seniors have no problem using it.
There are things that I don’t like at this TV and those are fact that the Skype camera is hard to find and that the manual is not printed (depends on where you buy it from).
There are many 42 inch TVs on the market to choose from but we all know that the Sony TVs are premium ones with a lot of useful tech in them. If I didn’t convinced you that this is one of the best TVs on the market, than maybe the guy (in the preview below) who purchased one will. You’ll see that he says that the sound is very good in small rooms like he has.
