Sony Bravia KDL42W7 LED HD 1080p Smart TV, 42" with Freeview HD, Silver

Product information

With pin sharp films and programmes all wrapped in clean Sony design - the W7 series adds a sleek, modern accent to any space. Full HD 1080p renders everything in stunning detail and with Motionflow technology even fast-moving action like games and sports flow across the screen. 

Exceptional images
Along with Full HD and a smooth simulated 200Hz motion rate, this TV boasts X-Reality PRO, an advanced set of technologies that refines and sharpens every detail on-screen.

For sports fans…
Experience a stadium atmosphere in your own living room. Live Football Mode automatically adjusts the sound settings so the roar of the crowd is loud and clear. You can also browse football videos from YouTube and the FIFA sites with ease.

Made for audio
Hear clear, full-range sound from a compact Bass Reflex speaker inside your TV. There's no distortion or unwanted vibration even when the action gets loud.

Screen mirroring
Through a simple wireless connection, screen mirroring lets you view your videos, photos, and more on your TV.

Built-in wall mount
The TV's integrated stand doubles as a wall-mounting bracket, so there's no need to go out and buy one. Please note, this TV is not compatible with other, external brackets

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Great t.v. I love it. But the delivery time was way too long. And now it's cheaper than it was when i bought it. 18 August 2014
sony kdl42w706b smart tv we had this tv to replace our old sony tv what a difference in the picture quality and easy to use an added bounus is the wi fi and satellite conection and goes well with our other sony hard drive recoder and dvd player the tv was deliverer on time we had phone call 30 minutes to say they were on the way well done sony and john lewis thanks again 15 August 2014
Stopped Working After Only 8 Months I finally settled on this tv after spending weeks researching for one that I thought was just right. The quality was great, though it's a shame that you can't get 4OD or ITV on here. One day, while my husband and I were watching it, it simply decided to end its life after only 8 months. Thank goodness that the JL contractor gave us no fuss; he took the broken Sony and gave us a temporary tv while the other was being repaired. We got a call not long after saying they were just going to give us a new one, and while that is great, I now have reservations about a tv model that didn't even last a year. 02 August 2014
Fantastic television Brilliant high definition colour, sound and contrasts excellent. Set up exactly as we want and lots of useful apps! 30 July 2014
Great TV Very happy with this product. Looks great with a nice thin bezel (silver frame makes a change from all the black bezels out there), fantastic picture quality and connectivity. Media player is great and plays all formats I have tried. Sound quality is great as well for a flat panel TV. The social media features are a bit of a gimmick and I can't see them being used very much, it's a shame there is no ITV Player or 4OD, and Sony are clearly pushing their own music, video on demand services which I personally don't feel are much good. It's also disappointing to see no Spotify on there but I think this is he case with all smart TV's at the moment. All in all, great TV and very happy with it. 27 July 2014
What you come to expect from Sony Being the person that does not buy new televisions, only inheriting from more affluent friends and relatives as their hands down. This shows how good things have got in the past decade with televisions. Clarity and definition even to my sad eyes is superb. 23 July 2014
Great telly This TV replaces our 10 year old Sony. I thought this was still a great telly but now realise what we have been missing out on. The picture quality is fabulous. The 42 " version we purchased fits well into our room and does not take over due it's minimalist design. 19 July 2014
Excellent TV Wanted to update my 10 yr old Sony 32" TV, I saw the Sony Bravia 32" in store and I was amazed at the picture quality. I did wonder if I would get the same result at home and I have to say I am very, very pleased. Decided the extra price for the 42" would be worth spending and I am highly delighted with my choice. Great World Cup viewing.... Excellent delivery, bang on time, so easy to set up myself, good TV speakers but I am using my Sony surround sound 5/1 set up, which gives me a great cinema experience at home, delighted. Running from standard TV aerial and home WiFi, superb results... Have purchased Apple TV and now can mirror my Mac products on screen, will keep me happy for many years.... 15 July 2014
