The Sony KDL-46BX420 ($899 MSRP) is a decent budget buy that crams more picture performance in its 46-inch LCD screen than many others do in higher-priced models. You will sacrifice a bit in the way of connectivity options, but overall this TV is not a...

Overall, the Sony KDL-46BX420 ($899 MSRP) isn’t a bad television set. Not only does it have great picture performance, but it isn’t overly-complicated by features that would probably never get used, or only serve as a frustration. The lack of input...

Sony KDL-46BX420 Review – 46-inch LCD HDTV

 

Although you will get a reasonably large display size of 46 inches in this TV, you will have to forego the desire of watching in 3D or accessing Internet TV. You will only get a basic TV if you buy this set but with a good enough display size and...

With the government regulations getting more stringent, all manufacturers are trying to minimize the energy consumption with every passing year. Along with the regular technology for decreasing energy consumption, this set also has the Light Sensor...

EXCELLENT FOR GARBAGE

 

I bought a year ago and also bought a surge protector but IT DOESNT WORK, I WOULD NEVER EVER BUY ANY SONY PRODUCT, I NEVER WILL SPEND 600 DOLLARS IN A TV THAT IN LESS THAN A YEAR BECOME A HUGE PIECE OF GARBAGE.

AWESOME

 

Awesome T.V. no complaints as of yet. Just that you need to hook up RCA cables for you to listen to cable T.V. though your home theater. Other than that it's AWESOME.
