Sony KDL-46W4500 Reviewed

sony 46w4500The latest Sony Bravia W series is the Sony W4500, which consists of three sizes, with the middle size being the 46-inch Sony KDL-46W4500.  The W4500 series comes neatly in at the higher end of their range, but below the XBR series.  This means you get some great features for a decent price, as the features only found on the highest-end models last year, are now featured on the KDL-46W4500 at a much better price.

I currently own the W3000 series, and am still very happy with it, even though I look at much newer models each day from running this site.  The 46-inch Sony Bravia KDL-46W4500 features a full HD 1080p 10-bit LCD screen which can reproduce more colors than a standard screen, providing a better image.  With a high dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1, the latest Sony Bravia Engine 2 processing, and Motionflow 100Hz with IB reduction the Sony KDL-46W4500 is feature packed.

With a winning stylish design and good connectivity options with three HDMI 1.3 inputs, PC VGA input, component, USB and many others. From ReviewQuest there are two great reviews and information on the Sony KDL-46W4500. TrustedReviews said, it shows extreme brightness; impressively detailed HD reproduction so long as there’s not much motion going on; the fact that its black levels are actually ironically very good in the bits of the picture not affected by the light spillage flaw; and some pretty potent audio. But in the end it’s the aggressive nature of the 46W4500′s bizarre light spillage problems that not only sticks in the memory once you’ve turned the TV off.  WhatHifi said, Side-by-side with any other set in its class, the Sony’s picture is deeper, more natural, more realistic, and more downright exciting. All-in-all, the KDL-46W4500 is one mighty impressive TV.
