Sony Bravia KDL-40W3000 HDTV

 

There's nothing wrong with Sony's 40W3000 LCD set that a good price reduction wouldn't cure. Well, not much, anyway. I noticed some lackluster details in the broadcast high-def tests, but overall the images looked good (in our November issue's HDTV...

Very easy to set up and use Ffreeze feature uses PiP

Expensive

Sony's remote is very long, which makes some buttons difficult to access. On the other hand, it's programmable and backlit

Sony Bravia KDL-40W3000 LCD HDTV

 

The Basics: In terms of price, the W Series falls in the middle of Sony's LCD lineup, yet it offers many of the same technologies and features found in the company's higher-end XBR4 and XBR5 lines. Like its higher-end brethren, this 40-inch 1080p model...

Sony continues to maintain a high standard of TVs with the Sony KDL-46W3000. TopTenREVIEWS reviewed the same product with a smaller screen size: theSony KDL 40W3000. Based on product specs and other expert reviews, the two products are the same, minus...

Users are also impressed by the picture out of the box. The TV even delivers better-than-average images on analog sources, something that is hard to do for a lot of the lower-end models

The Sony KDL-40W3000 is an excellent choice for those looking for a superb TV without the XBR pricetag By combining the 120Hz refresh rate and the 1080p, this TV has good picture quality that is sure to give you a quality viewing experience

Sony KDL-46W3000 review

 

Despite its titanic feature count, this 46in LCD TV is sunk by unwelcome noise

Vibrant colours ; Excellent audio quality ; Wealth of connections

Motion smearing ; High price

Surprisingly messy motion handling really spoils this otherwise fine HDTV

We've all seen the bouncing balls and exploding paint, but does this Sony LCD TV live up to the hype?

Sony Bravia KDL-46W3000 review

 

After initially struggling to find its feet in the flat TV world, Sony finally made its mark with its first Bravia range. So it's with high expectations that we set about testing the £1,600 Bravia KDL-46W3000: a true 'second-generation' 46-inch Bravia...

Vibrant and natural colours; stuffed with features; beautifully built.

Suffers with motion blur; black levels; not exactly cheap.

We had high hopes for this true second-generation Bravia from Sony. But while some elements of its performance are right on the money, it lets itself down surprisingly badly in a couple of key areas, making its premium price point hard to stomach
