Sony BRAVIA KDL-46EX400 46" LCD Preview


The Sony BRAVIA KDL-46EX400 is a high definition television that's standard as far as features go but has a few that are very useful.

Sony KDL-40EX400


A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

The Sony KDL-40EX400 ($599 MSRP) is a great value. For an entry-level or near-entry level (depending on how you define such things), it offers outstanding contrast and color performance. If you’re looking for a simple TV that doesn’t need all the...

Sony KDL-32EX400 Review – 32-inch LCD HDTV


If you find people flocking to buy this TV, then it will solely be due to the Bravia Engine 2. Because of this improved version of the engine, you can expect the picture quality to be even better along with some added perks like intelligent sensors and...

Sensors play an important role in providing just the right kind of picture quality to the viewer. The ambient sensor is responsible for making the images appear very true to life because of natural colors. Depending on the ambiance of the room, the...

Sony KDL-40EX400 Review – 40-inch LCD HDTV


By providing the buyers with a number of cool choices in a pretty reasonable price range, Sony is bound to win some accolades here. The limelight at CES never really fell on these models but Sony KDL-40EX400 is one of those models that can augment...

Sony KDL-46EX400 Review – 46-inch LCD HDTV


Although there is nothing extraordinary in this TV, Sony has proposed to release it into the market based on the fact that people are eager to buy Sony HDTVs even if they have just the regular features and are not exactly in the top bracket of TVs....

The connectivity is good with 7 HD inputs. There are provisions to connect all high definition devices to maximize your entertainment options. With 4 HDMI, you have a choice of connecting Blu-ray disc players, gaming consoles like Playstation 3 and...

Good Product/ Horrible Refurb


Refurb Discount - Technically worked as expected

One of the most unacceptable packaging jobs i have ever seen. The units were basically loose packed and one had zero packing tape, so it was laying out of its box when it arrived from UPS, these units were probably pristine when boxed but the...

Great little TV


Bedroom tv where I just added an HD box. Signal/picture's great. Remote is large with a lot of open real estate. Screen automatically sets to zoom view if not HD signal, and you know what? It's actually done well. Faces aren't stretched out like a fun...

Great picture for movies. Dissipates some sun glare nicely. Setup took about 5 minutes, including reading the instruction manual. Plenty of options to play with. Since it's in my bedroom, the sleep timer is easy to access (although no dedicated button)

Preset scene contrast ratios are dark. 'General' one is good, but I needed to manually adjust mine

Epic TV


Didn't buy this on Newegg. For once, I actually found a better deal elsewhere. I got it on GearXS for $380, $412 shipped.

Price! - Got it for 412 shipped from another site. Yes, I know Sonys are normally overpriced, but this was actually a fantastic deal ; Customization - Plenty of options to tinker with for Picture, Sound, Presets, Favorites, and other various settings....

The scene presets (Cinema, Sports, General, etc.) look a little bit dark. They are fully customizable, and remember your choices when you switch to another scene or another input though, so a little tinkering can fix whatever gripes you may have with...
