Sony KDL40D3500 Reviewed

Sony KDL-40D3500Sony has recently upgraded their D3000 with the new Bravia D3500 series which includes a number of upgrades and enhancements over the previous models, brining the overall spec up to a higher end. The Sony KDL40D3500 is a middle range 40-inch LCD HDTV with a full HD 1080p screen for the highest HD format, offering some great features at a very reasonable price.

The Sony KDL40D3500 might still cost more than some other manufacturers, but they might not be so well equipped as the KDL-40D3500. The KDL40D3500 provides a great high to middle range 40-inch full HD HDTV at around £750 ($1500), much cheaper than their KDL40W3000.

The 40-inch Sony KDL40D3500 provides many great new features commonly only found on top of the range models, such as a full HD screen, 24p support for true film frame rates, a high dynamic contrast ratio of 16,000:1 for superior colours and black levels. Along with Sony’s Bravia Engine to enhance image quality, contrast and reduce noise, and Live colour creation provide very impressive image quality. TrustedReviews say, another benefit of the KDL40D3500: its exceptional sharpness. Fine details are rendered with total, noiseless precision, giving the image exactly the sort of ‘snap’ we love to see with our HD stuff. Plus the image tends to look more three-dimensional thanks to all the background detail that’s resolved.
