Sony KDL-46 X 4500


Excellent colour matching., Contrast-rich and bright images., Accurate 24p picture (even with films arriving as 60i/p)., Excellent sound., Energy efficient

Picture depends strongly on viewing angle., Blurry picture via 576i/p

Sony’s local dimming technology impresses all round: The KDL-46 X 4500 produces an artefact-free image with rich contrast and superb colours, despite its low power consumption. The only thing spoiling the fun is the relatively strong viewing-angle...

Sony KDL-55 X 4500


Hybrid digital tuner (DVB-T/-C)., Huge contrast ratio., Relatively low power consumption., Accurate colours., Crisp motion

Pronounced dependence on viewing angle., Blurry 576i/p video via HDMI

At the time of testing, this TV was as good as LCDs got. With enormous contrast, the KDL-55 X 4500 does away with the technology’s — until now — biggest flaw. But it’s not all rosy: To reach true perfection, the TV would need to process standard...

Sony's 55' LED LCD TV is pricey, but frequently spectacular

Great HD pictures ; Decent SD too ; RGB LEDs


Mostly stunning pictures, but this bigscreen struggles on the value front

Sony Bravia KDL-46X4500 LED TV review


The first true LED Bravia is a remarkable, though pricey, full HD performer

Stunning pictures ; Plenty of features and connections ; Nifty design

Pricey ; Audio could be better ; No internet functions ; Unhelpful presets

Offers the best picture quality a Sony TV has ever produced. An awesome, if expensive, home cinema set

Sony Bravia KDL-46X4500 46in LCD TV


Sony's decision to use LED backlighting is paying off as we look at the KDL-46X4500 LCD TV.

The 46X4500 confirms in no uncertain terms that the jaw-dropping pictorial glories of the 55X4500 were no fluke. Sony really has hit the ground not just running but sprinting with its debut LED sets, delivering HD pictures so good that they actually...
