Sony KDL-40Z4100 LCD HDTV

 

Introduction Since the arrival of 120Hz TVs, the technology has generally been treated as a premium performance feature, reserved for use in a manufacturer's highest-end lines. As with any popular feature, 120Hz is now slowly starting to trickle down...

Sony KDL-40Z4100/S (silver)

 

I love this TV. All of these TV's need some tuning out of the box, and I was able to adjust every picture component (color, red, blue, greean all seperate), sharp, background, bright, contrast, everything, until it looks fantastic. Even has advanced...

Finely tunable aspects of picure quality and color, from 1-100 or 1-10, not just Warm/Cool/Neutral. 120Hz refresh = geat quality on fast pics! Lots of HDMI inputs. SPLIT SCREEN viewing! Great looking thin frame with easy access to ports & controls

I bought in Feb 2009 and paid 1299. It's more expensive than what you can spend on some other brands. Then again, this is really a superior TV. But we'll say price is a con

Good picture, however, the on screen menus are extremely difficult to use. When connecting a laptop compute to this TV by D-sub 15-pin, it is very difficult if not impossible to get a full screen display, even with a decent laptop computer (support...

Before I give my review of this TV, I have to say that it is definetly at the top of the LCD heap (with the 650/750 samsung's up there and the XBR4/5. However, as a consumer and not an electronics officionato who rates products professionaly such as...

Has the specs of top-tier LCD, the same if not better in xbr4/5 sharpness. Also it is very nice aesthetically

Best Value for the 32 inch

 

Of all the TVs SONY offers the EX500 is the best value of them all, not quite as flashy as the EX700 or EX710 (LED) but it keeps a couple of their important features, 120hz and 1080P. Sports and action movies are amazing and paired with a SONY blu-ray...

Everything, 120Hz, 1080P ;

A little thick but no big deal ;

Product Specifications

Look no further than the KDL-40Z4100 for the most strikingly stunning and flat-out sophisticated HDTV Sony has to offer. With a remarkably slim bezel design, MotionflowTM 120Hz for the reproduction of smooth, lifelike images, BRAVIA Engine 2TM and ACE for deeper blacks and crisp shadow detail, this TV's sensational design is only matched by its picture. But phenomenal image quality and show-stopping design isn't all. The KDL-40Z4100 also includes DLNATM compatibility so you can access your digital photo collection over your home network (additional DLNATM components required; sold separately). DMex is also on board for an optional digital connection to innovative expansion modules like the BRAVIA® Internet Video Link for exciting web-based content. The Digital Media Port (DMP) is included for connecting your portable digital audio devices like iPod® and Walkman® music players. +PLUS+ - SONY DVD PLAYER - WALL MOUNT - HDMI-HDMI CABLE - CLEANING KIT
