Sony Bravia HX92 3D LED TV - 46 inches of near perfection [First...

We admit that we haven’t reviewed too many televisions of late, but the new Sony Bravia HX92 arrived to our test center that was brimming with excitement. And it was unboxed to a lot of oohs and aaahs! However, once we moved beyond that, and got down to some serious work, here are some initial impressions:


  1. Very slim build. Keeps the weight down as well, to a certain extent.
  2. Built-in wireless LAN capabilities are much appreciated.
  3. The backlit remote does help a lot in a dark room
  4. We quite liked the colours on this display, in their natural tone.
  5. You Tube app and the Sony Entertainment Television video app work well.


  1.  Very reflective display. It will reflect even a tiny speck of light that may be in front of the TV.
  2.  The menu design is quite cool, but will be a bit complicated for most new users.
  3.  A certain section of the remote is quite congested in terms of the crucial keys. Home, return, options, guide, select and the four directional navigation keys- chances are you will press the wrong one if you aren’t looking at the remote!
  4. Not too many widgets, except for Facebook and Twitter.
  5.  Live Colour just makes reds, oranges and similar colours un-naturally bright. Best when turned off, or if you really want keep it on, then keep it at Low.

The table stand of the HX92 has a nice brushed metal finish, but turns out it is deceptively glossy. Just taking it out of its packing and the surface was full of smudges. Here are a lot of pics of the HX92. Do check these out for the time being, and stay tuned for a detailed review of the same. We will not comment on the 3D performance at the moment, but do wait for our detailed verdict on the 3D performance as well.


HX92 is a very slim LED television


All the connectivity options on the rear


An overwhelming amount on info on one page! With HDMI 2 selected, it is showing the content from that source in the window to the left


The multiple menu sections, and what they offer. Quite a neat lay out, once someone gets the hang of all the information there


This one even remembers the last visited sources or applications. No hiding away something that you may not want people to see!


Surprisingly, there are not a lot of apps available. However, Facebook and Twitter are already there, so fret not!


You will never be left with an unsatisfactory picture quality. There are just so many settings available that it is quite a fun ride for the geek inside most of us!


And this is what we are talking about!



Wireless web setup complete! Voila!


This is where you can access the likes of You Tube from within the menu.


For those of you who haven’t had enough of the daily soaps, the Sony Entertainment TV app helps you relive all that! Most clips were in the 4:3 aspect ratio, though


Something we noticed with the You Tube app- if you return to the Home menu when a video is playing, it continues to play in that little window. You can navigate the menu without needing to pause of reset the video


Having a backlit remote really helps, particularly if you are watching a movie in the dark
