Sony Bravia KDL-46X3500 46" 1920x1080p LCD HDTV


When the local Sony dealer asked me which model I wanted to check out, I wasn?t sure if I should get the smaller 40??or the larger 46? model. On the one hand, statistics say that the 40? model will be a lot more popular, but they also suggest that the...

In short, I think this is a great display and certainly a breakthrough in price/performance. Sony is continually pushing the limit. Anyone who has sufficient HD sources and is looking for a new display should give Sony’s latest lineup a close look

Sony KDL-40 X 3500


Everything present: Upmarket features complement the high-contrast panel., The 24p cinematic refresh rate and video electronics guarantee smooth transition and pure movie enjoyment., Ideal for sport fans: Even fast paced transitions are faithfully...

Not suitable for the bedroom: The fan has a slight but irritating hum, which after a while will grate the nerves., Playback of DVD material requires a good external player - the Sony loses a lot of detail when processing 567i/p signals

For a solid price, one gets one of the best LCD flat-panel televisions in the 40" class. It is very easy to operate, has an exceptional feature set and pushes the limit of what is possible for a television based on LCD technology in terms of contrast...

Sony Bravia KDL-40X3500 review


Although it doesn't have the sharpest image or the deepest blacks, this TV is still a powerhouse of performance when considered as a whole. Both the picture and sound will please most potential owners and the design will sell it to people who want...

Design ; Sound quality ; Ease of use ; HDMI CEC works well

Backlight seems too bright, and gives dark images a blue tint ; Not as many inputs as you might expect on a high-end TV ; Not the most detailed image

At this price point, there are some good Panasonic plasmas available, and we highly recommend the Toshiba 40XF and 40ZF picture-frame TVs. They look just as appealing and, in our opinion, have slightly less overpowering backlights

Sony KDL40X3500 Review: 40" Bravia 100Hz HD 1080p LCD TV


The Sony KDL40X3500 sits proudly atop of their hierarchy of LCD televisions, boasting all of the latest technologies (read: buzzwords that get the consumers salivating) in their arsenal such as 100Hz motion, true HD 1080p panel and 1080p/24 support....

Motionflow 100Hz reduces motion blur without nasty interpolation artifacts ; Excellent blacks and shadow detail ; Accurate colours with excellent decoding ; Superb HD resolution with "Full Pixel" 1:1 mapping ; Easy to calibrate to D65 greyscale...

Average video processing ; Auto-dimming unless [Game/ Text Mode] is engaged

I'll readily admit that I didn't expect much from the Motionflow 100Hz on Sony KDL40X3500, because all the motion compensation frame interpolation (MCFI) implementations on other flat screen televisions I've seen in the past have invariably thrown up...

Quite possibly the most accomplished large LCD TV currently available ..

The Sony KDL-40X3500 has joined a small but growing band of LCD TV's that have closed the gap when it come to the traditional Plasma strengths of black level performance and smooth fast motion capability. While hardened Plasma...

One of the most accomplished large LCD TV's currently available ..

The Sony KDL-46X3500 is a significant step forward for LCD technology. While hardened Plasma enthusiasts may not be convinced, others who may not previously have considered LCD should think twice.
