sony kdl-46w5100The Sony KDL-46W5100 HDTV is the 46-inch model from the Sony Bravia W5100 series of LCD HDTV.

The 46-inch model is the mid size model from the range. The Sony W5100 series is the latest edition of the W range for 2009. For me I feel that the W series is very well placed in Sony’s line up, it sits above the entry level models, and just below the highest end models. For a buyer, this gives you a perfect mix of impressive specifications and technology, while not paying through the roof, for their flagship models.

The 46-inch Sony KDL-46W5100 is the most affordable model in Sony’s new 2009 lineup, to come with the latest Interactive features / Internet TV technology. As well as the more common Yahoo widgets for showing live information while watching, such as news reports, weather and more, the Sony KDL46W5100 also supports live video streaming.
