Sony BRAVIA KDL-46EX520 LED TV (preview)
Sony's top non-3D TV uses an edge-lit LED panel and can stream video from the Internet
- It's got all the streaming Internet features of the best Sony TVs
- No 3D, no dynamic LED backlighting, Wi-Fi is optional
We think the Sony BRAVIA EX520 will be a popular cheap LED TV. It doesn't have any superfluous 3D features or built-in Wi-Fi, so for anyone just looking for a simple Sony TV it'll hopefully be a good choice. We are impressed by the inclusion of Sony Internet TV and BRAVIA Internet Video.
The Sony BRAVIA EX520 replaces the BRAVIA EX500 series that was released in early 2010. It's got all the same features and will likely have similar picture quality — it's an edge-lit LED TV using similar technology to last year's model. It doesn't have any motion smoothing (Sony calls this Motionflow), but it still has a Full HD 1080p panel.
The Sony BRAVIA EX520 will have the same Sony Internet TV and BRAVIA Internet Video features as the BRAVIA HX820 and BRAVIA HX925 — Sony's most expensive and best BRAVIA TVs for this year. If you want to connect wirelessly, you will need to purchase a Sony-branded Wi-Fi dongle.
Sony touts an 'energy-saving Presence Sensor' among the BRAVIA EX520's list of features, so we're guessing low power consumption will be a hallmark of this model in the same way it was for the Sony BRAVIA WE5 in 2009.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
