New to the Sony KDL-52W4500 is a new and improved Motionflow 100Hz high frame rate technology with “IB Reduction”, which eliminates motion blur and juddering often seen during image panning. Also featured is 24p, and x.v color. Trustedreviews said the precision with which the set portrays the very finest of details in a picture, such as stubble, facial pores, strands of hair and even the weave in clothing is nothing short of mesmerising. If for some reason you’re not convinced by the whole HD thing yet, watch a good Blu-ray on the 52W4500 and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without HD for so long. The 52W4500 gets mighty close to being a bona fide big-screen superstar, it really does. And it’s not even all that expensive considering its combination of a huge size and Sony brand.
