Sony KDL-46W4100 Reviewed

Sony KDL-46W4100Before I kick off the review, I would like to point out to the readers that the Sony KDL-46W4100 is known as the KDL-46W4000 in the UK and European markets. For some reason Sony felt the desire to name what is known as the W4100 series in the U.S as the W4000 series in Europe, so this review can also be called the Sony KDL-46W4000 Review!

The 46-inch Sony KDL-46W4100 LCD HDTV comes from the brilliant W4100 series, which builds on last years extremely impressive and well received W3000 series (which I own and love). The Sony Bravia KDL-46W4100 was only announced a few short months ago, but very quickly caught peoples attention. A very stylish bezel surround the Full HD 1080p LCD screen which offers the highest and best HD resolution, which will be particularly well received on a large set of this size.

Sony KDL-46W4100

I believe the Sony W4100 series, and the Sony KDL46W4100 to be best priced performance for money priced Sony HDTV available. The W4100 is a very high-end HDTV coming in just slightly below Sony’s flag ship line, but offers a much better price and many of the key performance features usually only seen in the very top end models. A key feature of this is Sony’s MotionFlow 120Hz high refresh rate technology, which was previously only available on their top model. This along with a high quality 1080p panel, high contrast ratio, 24p support make the Sony KDL-46W4100 a very well equipped HDTV, which deep black levels, accurate colors, and great connectivity. Cnet say, connections on the Sony KDL-46W4100 matches that of most high-end HDTVs available today. Around the back, we count three HDMI inputs and on the side number four. Two component-video jacks, a VGA-style PC input and others. the Sony exhibited solid black levels and very good dejudder video processing, along with impressive color accuracy.
