How To Buy an LCD HDTV


It's rare to find an HDTV at any price that delivers near-accurate color right out of the box, but the 46-inch Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000 did exactly that. The set further impressed me with its ink-like black levels and dark screen material that together...

Superb color accuracy. Impressive image contrast.

Considerable smearing in motion scenes. Narrow viewing sweet spot. Film-mode detection was inconsistent. Excessive overscan with standard definition and component 720p video.

Sony's Bravia KDL-46V3000 delivered the best out-of-box color I've seen from any HDTV, but unacceptable image blurring when displaying dark scenes as well as a narrow viewing sweet spot make it difficult to recommend.

Superior color and contrast are sullied by obvious image smearing in the Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000.

Review: Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000 LCD TV


My first color TV was a Trinitron, and I spent the extra money because I knew the Sony name meant quality.

This display can also accept the optional Internet Video Link. It plugs into the back of the set and uses a broadband connection to stream online content. I didn't have one to try out but have seen it demonstrated, and the setup is pretty hassle-free

Sony KDL40V3000 Review - 40" Bravia 1080p HD LCD TV


The mid-range V3000 series sit one rung below the more accomplished W3000 range in Sony's somewhat mazy hierarchy of LCD televisions. Because a lot of ground has been covered in our Sony KDL-40W3000 review, on this page I'm only going to highlight...

Smooth 1080p/24 handling without internal conversion nor interpolation ; Excellent shadow detail delineation ; Exquisite high-definition detail from [Full Pixel] 1:1 mapping

Calibrated black level not as deep as W3000/ X3500/ Samsung M86/ F86 ; Undefeatable auto-dimming when screen is black/ near-black ; Lacks white balance controls in user menu for greyscale calibration

Sony KDL40V3000 is an above average LCD television whose biggest appeal is its relatively inexpensive price (for a full HD Sony LCD TV).

Another excellent mid-range LCD from Sony ..

The Sony KDL-40V3000 is an excellent mid-range performer, with a price/spec ratio which simplifies the decision making buying process - in a nutshell, if you decide to go for a higher spec machine, you know that the money will be well spent....
