180-Degree Rotating High Speed HDMI Cable
control of all cables can be very tiring especially if they are hard to bend
into position. It will be worse if you mount TV with the wall, you can have no
place to plug them. The smart cable HDMI of Lindy can rotate in any direction, they
are easy to fit in the narrow space.
adjustable connectors are also ideal for HDMI ports that arranged weirdly. If you
find the location of TV’s ports makes HDMI cable to protrude at strange angles,
these connections can help you route the cables to the place that you want.
connectors are compliant with 1.4a HDMI standard, so they will work with the
source and 3D TV, and are available with a length of 1m, 2m, 3m and 5m, prices
are respectively $31, $39, $47 and $78. They are good value and very helpful.
Sony Bravia KDL-46NX723
(TV) ; $310 (speakers)
Design TV Series of Sony is one of the most attractive TV we’ve seen, but the
NX723 can be more attractive by adding an adequate speaker (speaker bar), which
is also the stand ($310). Sony also produces 40in (KDL-40NX723) and 55in
(KDL-55NX723) models, both are compatible with the speakers stand and priced
respectively $1240 and $3255.
Lack of beveled
face of speakers makes this TV seem larger than 46in TV. When turning off, the
edge-to-edge mirror looks very impressive. When turning on, the border is still
small, helps you not be distracted from the action on screen.
the incredible thin appearance, it has 4 HDMI ports, VGA, component, composite
and SCART for video and analogue RCA, digital optics and inputs for audio
3.5mm. Common Interface slot allows you to register television services, and 2
USB ports can be used for PVR devices or multimedia playing from external
storage. It played most of our test files, but DivX and XviD video have refused
to load. NX723 is ideal if you like to transfer multimedia files from a DLNA
media server or PC. You can use the Ethernet port to run 1 cable from router,
or built-in Wi-Fi adapter for wireless connection. Wi-Fi adapter also provides
access to the connected TV services of Sony. We hoped the comprehensive
internet TV system from Sony and NX723 will not disappoint you. It provides
catch-up TV from BBC iPlayer and Demand Five, movies for rent from Lovefilm and
own Video Unlimited Services of Sony, social network and even web browser. It
does not support Flash, so you can not use the websites as 4oD, but it's still
If you prefer
live TV, you will please to know that NX723 can handle HD footage and has good standard
definition. Noises and compression artefacts are kept in minimal and we can identify
face details on low bandwidth channels such as BBC News. In high definition, super
sharp images and vibrant colors are at default settings. Black is also very
good, with minimal leakage from the LCD lights that are illuminated at the edge
(edge-lit), although the very dark picture seems grey.
TV, including the NX723, using active glasses (active) for 3D, but the TV does
not provide it, you have to buy it separately for around $78/ a glasses at
www.amazon.co.uk. Depth effects are convincing in our tests, though we still
have some matte problems with the screen, a side effect of 3D glasses. We like
passive3D (passive) for its more vibrant colors, whether passive TV has lower
resolution while watching 3D because of alternate techniques.
expected, the speaker base is in a different class than integrated speakers on most
TV. 4 internal speakers create clear mid-range and exactly high, fresh pitch,
while the back tiny subwoofer speakers create a powerful bass. If space is
limited, just a few compact speaker systems can compete with SU-46NX1 speaker.
However, if you spend more than $ 1550 for TV, you will definitely want to
connect to surround sound system.
If you are
looking for a central ornament in the living room, very little TV can compete
with the NX723. It looks even more beautiful when combined with the speaker base,
besides, the non-existent screen bezel and vivid LED picture quality makes it
stand out in any room. However, speakers can not compare with the sound quality
of the 5.1 system, especially movie, so you can save hundreds of dollars by
selecting a plasma TV like the Panasonic Viera TX-P46GT30B and separate
speakers. Panasonic TV may not be as beautiful as Sony but they have advantages
in image quality.
Amazing look and many advanced features but you can get more beautiful image
with this money.
