Sony challenges for the top spot

Outstanding fine detail ; Excellent colour fidelity ; Good multimedia support

Take care with the 100Hz mode ; Uneven backlight

Expert review by:

Sony Bravia KDL-52W4500 52in LCDTV

 

Sony impressed us with the KDL-40W4000, so does this Bravia 52in LCD TV live up to expectations?

The 52W4500 is arguably better placed to work as a ‘picture frame' than the Samsung, too, on account of its use of LCD rather than plasma technology. After all, LCD doesn't suffer from any significant screen burn issues.

If you're after detail and contrast rather than whiz-bang features, Sony thinks it has the answer with this 46in set. We'll be the judges of that...

The ’W4500 is as impressive now as when we first saw it – and it's much cheaper too

Sony Bravia KDL-52W4500 review

 

What initially looks like being a spectacular success for Sony ultimately turns into a quality-control nightmare, thanks to the appearance of some horribly overt pools of light during dark scenes. Apparently these don't appear on all 52W4500 TVs, but...

Well designed and built ; Great sharpness and brightness ; Good motion handling ; Multimedia connectivity

Dark scenes are badly blighted by backlight seepage issues ; Only three HDMIs ; Occasional grain with HD

Conclusion When it's good, the 52W4500 is very good. But when it's bad, as our sample was during dark scenes, it's so bad you have to wonder how it slipped through Sony's quality-control department. Sure, if you're lucky you might order a 52W4500 and...

We didn't think that Sony's flatscreen TVs could get much better, but the 40W4500 has proved us wrong. It's a stunning TV

Awesome contrast and detail levels ; handles motion well ; classy design

Nothing major

The 'W4500 is as impressive now as when we first saw it - it's much cheaper, too

Unbeatable combination of deep blacks and punchy whites ; stunning detail, particularly with Blu-ray ; excellent motion

It needs care in calibration to truly impress

Sony Bravia KDL40W4500

 

The Sony Bravia KDL40W4500 is a competent television at a good price, and while the picture is proficient it has some problems with movement.

Excellent HD pictures ; DLNA support ; Subtle styling

Occasional artefacts even with MotionFlow off ; Poor off-axis

A good, if not great television, the Sony KDL40W4500 puts in a good performance for the money, but rivals such as Samsung offer superior cosmetics and a better picture to boot. Also, be aware that the Sony KDL40W4500 is now coming to the end-of-life,...

Sony KDL 40W4500 LCD TV

 

The KDL-40W4500 has exhaustive photographic capabilities, with the 6.2 megapixel display really doing justice to your digital snaps and with the option to use the screen as a large digital photo frame, cycling through happy memories.

The other great piece of innovation within the KDL-40W4500 is the fact that it can be connected to your home network and share media that is stored on your PC, provided that you have compatible software and hardware. It is really a media powerhouse...

A great looking and performing TV with the odd minor glitch ..

Take away the minor issue with 'clouding' and Sony would have produced one of the finest LCD TV's available. As it is, with strong performance in all areas the KDL-40W4500 is still worth serious consideration.

Sony KDL40W4500 / KDL40W4500U Review

 

Although we liked the Sony Bravia W4000 LCD series we tested back in May 2008, we bemoaned the lack of 100Hz technology, user menu white balance control, and proper film mode deinterlacing. The Sony KDL40W4500 LCD TV is blessed with 100Hz Motionflow...

The Sony KDL40W4500 is the logical next step up from the W4000 series, adding a functional 100Hz MCFI system to excellent blacks, accurate colour gamut and almost no input lag (with the appropriate configuration). Had Sony offered white balance...
