Product details

With pioneering picture quality, impressive surround sound and Freeview viewing, the Sony BRAVIA KDL42W653 Smart 42” LED TV is the perfect home entertainment system in a smaller frame.

Pin-sharp picture

From close up detail of a tiger's fur in a wildlife documentary to a quick shot of the dance floor at a wedding taken on your mobile phone, what we watch on our TVs comes from all sorts of places these days. X-Reality PRO from Sony makes sure you always get the best picture quality.

It works by cleverly analyzing the scene on the TV and comparing it to an extensive database of images, sharpening edges and refining detail to give an enhanced picture in nano seconds. Now you'll see the individual hairs on a tiger's back and your wedding snaps will be clear, even if your memory is a bit fuzzy. In fact no matter what you watch you'll see a lot more with X-Reality PRO.

The KDL42 also matches real-world colours, exhibiting a wide spectrum from vibrant and vivid hues to delicately detailed tones and shadings. It will enhance documentaries, epic films, video games and more.

Motionflow


Able to keep up with even the fastest athlete's movements, the TV incorporates Motionflow XR technology, specially designed for smoother and more natural fast on-screen motion.

Motionflow from Sony reduces blur and judder to show each moving image as smooth as possible. Now your favourite athlete remains as sharp and detailed in full flow as they were on the starting blocks.

Awesome sound


Cutting-edge sound is delivered through two 5 W speakers, bolstered by an impressive array of audio enhancement technology including Signal-to-Sound Architecture, Bass Ref Box Speaker, Reflector, Invisible Speaker, S-Force Front Surround 3D, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Pulse.

Smart functionality


As well as its expanded viewing window, the Sony BRAVIA KDL42W653 brings you the best movies, music, games, apps and more directly from the internet – all at the touch of a button. Wirelessly connecting to all your devices, it lets you take full advantage of your favourite content.

Integrated WiFi marks the way forward for this TV, letting it connect to other devices for easy access to your collections of music, pictures, videos and more.

The Sony Entertainment Network is on hand to keep you surprised and entertained, facilitating streaming of HD movies, a plethora of songs, TV channels, a full web browser and popular apps like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Skype.

Select your favourites from a massive selection of instant entertainment that includes catch-up TV, full TV series and brand-new movies.

Jaw-dropping connectivity

You'll also be able to use your smartphone or tablet as a remote control – the Media Remote app for iPhone, Android and tablet lets you control all the functions of your Sony BRAVIA KDL-42W653 and other Sony devices, as you search for catch-up shows, look for songs or even treat it like a trackpad for smoother web surfing.

Wirelessly mirror your smartphone screen on your TV to share videos, photos and more. With simple wireless pairing you can mirror anything on your phone's screen straight to your TV.

Use the Catch and Throw feature in the Media Remote app to rapidly send web pages from your phone to your TV, and back. You can also locate a photo or video on your smartphone and swipe your finger to ‘throw' it onto the big TV screen.

Freeview HD

Watch your favourite programmes from BBC, ITV and Channel 4 in pin-sharp full high definition with the inbuilt Freeview HD tuner. You get more than 50 standard TV channels plus a myriad of radio stations to choose from, all without subscription. You're sure to find something you love.

Economical performance

Made by energy-efficient processes and featuring power-saving technology, the 42 BRAVIA KDL 42W653 Smart LED TV saves you energy and money.

The set raises and lowers backlight brightness just where it's needed onscreen to save energy and deliver higher contrast than regular LED TVs. Dynamically edge-lit, local or frame dimming adjust brightness according to content for powerful static contrast.

Scene Optimised Energy Saving adjusts LED backlight timing and level for the optimum viewing settings and image quality, providing energy savings of up to 30% compared to normal viewing.

Slim and beautiful

With its slim form, the BRAVIA KDL42W653 LED TV demonstrates a new way to merge your television with your living room.

Airy and light, it merges top-quality materials with seamless edges. This TV boasts a form defined by sleek lines, a slim yet durable Gorilla Glass screen, smoothly integrated sound systems, a six-degree tilt and beautifully contrasted anti-reflective glass and brushed aluminium.

This minimalistic design lets you see more picture and less frame, and the clean and tidy brushed steel easel legs both complement the TV's style and perfectly support it – even letting you tilt it back and forth or swivel it left and right for the best viewing angle.

The stand doubles as a wall mount for this TV, giving you the freedom to set it up as you choose.

Expand your entertainment

Enjoy films and games in stunning HD by connecting a Blu-ray player or Playstation to one of the multiple HDMI connections. You could even connect a USB device to your BRAVIA TV and enjoy films, photos or music directly.

Don't forget your HDMI cables


Check out our range of HDMI cables to connect your input devices and to make sure your new TV has a perfect picture with improved transfer speeds.

Look out for the Sandstrom Silver Series HDMI cables with their lifetime warranty.

Smart, compact and amazingly capable, the Sony BRAVIA KDL42W653 Smart 42” LED TV elevates your entertainment experience to new highs.

Delivery and service

Home Delivery

We have a range of delivery options including next day if you order before 8pm in most areas. Free delivery is available between 7am and 7pm, 7 days a week.

Removed and Recycled for Free
Unlike many other retailers, we will take away your old product for free recycling when we deliver. Just remember to disconnect the appliance before we arrive (unless you have purchased installation).

Install TV to stand with demo

We can also install your new TV on the day we deliver, for most of the UK. Just add installation at the 'Confirm basket’ page at the checkout.

Here's what we'll do:
  • Discuss where the TV is to be situated and how you would like it set up.
  • Disconnect the existing TV, un-box and check the new TV and stand.
  • Assemble the TV and the stand and set the TV on it.
  • Tune in the TV, connect any existing equipment such as a Blu-ray player and games console, then tidy the cables.
  • If it’s a Smart TV, set it up to your existing network (internet connection required).
  • Give you a demo of the main features.
  • Take away your old TV and packaging for recycling if you’d like us to.

Note: Before we arrive, you will need to make sure you have the necessary cables: SCART, AVI HDMI etc. If it’s a Smart TV, you will need an existing internet connection and your new TV either has built-in Wi-Fi or you have purchased the compatible dongle.
