Sony Bravia KDL46WE5 LCD TV

 

This power-efficient Sony TV shows that traditional LCD panel technology isn't dead yet

Impressively low power consumption figures, DLNA support, decent picture quality

Dorky two-tone chassis, expensive, some eco features compromise picture quality

The Sony Bravia KDL46WE5 shows that cathode-backlit LCDs can be green-friendly without destroying image quality. The picture quality isn't as good as an LED-backlit TV, but the overall package is decent.

This new Sony 46in LCD is not only a stunning performer, it'll leave your conscience clean with its eco-friendly outlook

Worthwhile eco-friendly innovations ; exhaustive features and full HD specification ; predictably simple to use ; excellent all-round picture performance

Black levels could be better ; appearance divided opinion

Sony Bravia KDL46WE5

 

Sony Australia's first crack at an "eco-conscious" LCD TV, the WE5 cuts power consumption through its new HCFL backlight and a Presence Sensor.

The WE5 is certainly one of the best performers energy-wise on the Australian market and kudos to Sony for setting the pace for others to follow. Surely these kinds of technologies and features will become more widespread down the track, but if power...
