Quite Fast High Frequency Rate

The high frequency rates of TVs of a comparable age and spec to this television range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 220Hz. At 400 hertz, the KDL-47W800 has a fairly fast high frequency rate compared to most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that were released more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 400Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including because of its better review score, the LG 42LM670S.

If this Sony TV high frequency rate is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Samsung UE40H7000 (£599) (600Hz) which also has a higher rating.

Energy

High Running Costs

The KDL-47W800 is one of the less economic to run TVs of this age and spec that we have analysed for 5 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the KDL-47W800 is £207.


Weight & Dimensions

Average Depth

At 64 millimeters, the KDL-47W800 has a pretty standard depth compared to most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared all the other 64mm thick televisions to this TV and we think because of their better review scores, the KDL-42W829 (£299.99), and the KDL-42W705 (£349.99) both from Sony are also worth considering.

If you would consider a TV with a thicker depth then you might want to look at the Sony KDL-42W706 (64mm).
