Sony Bravia KLV-40ZX1M LCD HDTV First Impressions Review - Intro

 

The Sony Bravia KLV-40ZX1M is an ultra-thin flat-screen LCD HDTV priced at $3,999. If that sounds high relative to other 40" HDTV's, it is, but you get one of the thinnest displays on the market at 9.9mm, and it also boasts Sony's latest technology for...

The KLV-40ZX1M is an incredibly stylish TV with some high-end specs that would be the flamboyant centerpiece of any home theater set-up. However, we're really disappointed by the lack of ports and the necessity of an accessory that could cost up to...

Sony Bravia KLV-40ZX1M

 

Editors' note (March 4, 2010): The rating on this product has been lowered because of changes in the competitive marketplace, including the release of 2010 models. The review has not otherwise been modified. Click here for more information.

Ultrathin panel creates a high-tech design; hidden cords; relatively accurate color; numerous picture controls; energy efficient

Extremely expensive; subpar black-level performance and color saturation; uneven screen uniformity; scant connectivity with just one HDMI input

As the first large-screen edge-lit LED-based LCD, Sony's KLV-40ZX1M looks stunning turned off, but it falls short when powered up.

One of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen.

 

A great Television. LED is the future of television. The picture is beautiful. Color are crisp and true. Although this is technically a monitor, when hooked up to a HD ready cable box you will see how amazing it is. I was origonally looking for a...

This LED has a super slim design making it perfect for wall mounting. The picture is amazing. There is almost no glare. The colors are crisp and clean. The black levels are excellent with proper adjusting

Expensive, one HDMI input. You need to purchase a HDMI switcher to use more than one device. The speaker is not great but ok Requires seperate speaker if you chose to mount the TV on the wall

Product Specifications

The 40" KLV-40ZX1M boasts an ultra-thin screen thats just 9.9mm deep — about the same as a CD case. Sony achieved this remarkable thinness by developing an edge-mounted LED illumination system that replaces the typical fluorescent backlight. LED backlighting also reproduces an extremely wide range of colors for images that look vibrant and natural. BYOT — bring your own tunerAnother reason the cabinet is so thin is that it contains no built-in tuner. The KLV-40ZX1M is a monitor designed to be connected to a high-def cable or satellite box or to a separate over-the-air HD tuner. There is a single HDMI input for hooking up an HD tuner or Blu-ray player but its also easy to enjoy multiple video sources if you e using a HDMI-equipped home theater receiver with HDMI switching. Read More10-bit LCD panel and video processing for more accurate colorsTwo key factors determining LCD picture quality are the LCD panel and the video processing circuitry. The KLV-40ZX1M uses an LCD screen with 10-bit resolution. A 10-bit panel can display 1024 levels of gradation for each primary color — red green and blue — compared to only 256 steps for conventional 8-bit panels. That expands the color palette from millions of shades to over a billion. And 10-bit video processing takes full advantage of the panels exceptional color resolution to show even the subtlest shadings. Sonys Motionflow™ technology delivers smooth smear-free motionEvery TV maker approaches 120Hz processing differently but Sonys Motionflow technology is one of the most sophisticated and effective solutions. It doubles the video frame rate by inserting 60 entirely new frames between the original 60 frames. The system analyzes the motion of specific on-screen objects as well as overall movement in each scene adjusting the amount of enhancement to deliver seamlessly smooth sharp pictures
