Sony Bravia EX520 Series Brief Review
Sony Bravia EX520 Series
1080p resolution; Edge-lit LED; 60Hz refresh rate; Bravia Internet TV connectivity
This is the last stop if you’re looking for a low end Sony LED TV because after this model, you’re officially going the conventional LCD route. For anyone who’s really just looking to upgrade from LCD to LED, the EX520 does just that. It shares many specs with the model slightly above it but the refresh rate does drop to 60Hz so some blurring may occur while watching sports, but it's fine otherwise. However, with a 1080p resolution and Sony’s X-Reality Engine, the picture quality should still be sharper than LCD models. And even though the EX520 may be the lowest-level LED TV in Sony's lineup, you can still enjoy Internet connectivity and take advantage of all Sony’s online content right through your TV. If you’re budget conscious but tired of LCD TVs, this model is offered in medium sizes, from 32 to 46 inches.
