Sony Bravia KDL-40BX420

 

Sony BX420 series information: Our review of the Bravia KDL-40BX420 from Sony is based off of our hands-on experiences with the 32-inch KDL-32BX420 set. What we observed applies to the 32-inch set as well as Sony's 46-inch KDL-46BX420. Sony says that...

Solid picture performance ; Light, easy to set up ; Customizable picture presets ; Decent sound

No Internet or network features ; Thicker bezel than some ; Less than perfect blacks

Sony sticks to its guns with the KDL-40BX420 by focusing on a superior picture, decent sound and a user-friendly interface in an attractive package.

Sony KDL-40BX420 Review – 40-inch LCD HDTV

 

There is not much to talk about this TV as it can only serve as a basic set for watching the normal TV programs. It neither has 3D nor the Internet TV, which are the most-sought features of this year. But since after buying a huge 3D set for your...

Sony provides 5 HD inputs in the TV which includes 2 HDMI. If you consider that this is only a basic TV which will only be a second set in the house, you may not need to connect too many high definition devices to it. However, if you want, you can...

Great picture and sound quality

 

I moved to an apartment with a very large living room, so the 32" screen I had seemed just too small. I ordered the same model in a 40" screen, and it fits very well; it is not so big that it overwhelms the room. Both the picture and sound quality are...
