Sony Bravia KDL-46XBR8

 

A uniquely styled, energy-efficient LED-lit LCD HDTV, the 46-inch Sony Bravia KDL-46XBR8 ($3,999.99 list) takes picture quality to new heights and sets higher standards for contrast and color reproduction. Multimedia mavens may find the set's...

Stellar picture contrast. Excellent color thanks to multicolored LEDs

More expensive than LCD models of similar size. Wider than most same-size HDTVs. Limited network multimedia capabilities

The 46-inch Sony Bravia KDL-46XBR8 lacks the integrated multimedia capabilities of other LED-based HDTVs, but it makes up for it with picture quality that's second to none.

Sony KDL-46XBR8 LCD HDTV Reviewed

 

It might be expensive, but the 46-inch KDL-46XBR8 from Sony has all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a high-end TV. A local-dimming LED backlight system, 120Hz technology, and that Sony style make for one excellent TV, if you can afford it....

The local-dimming LED backlight system allows this LCD to produce better blacks and have a better overall contrast than many traditional LCD TVs. The use of red, green, and blue LEDs also leads to great color purity ; Motionflow 120Hz Pro technology...

This is an expensive HDTV. It's much pricier than a traditional 46-inch LCD and also costs more than a comparably sized LED LCD from Samsung ; The viewing angle is only average ; While other manufacturers are adding Web features to their TVs, Sony...

The KDL-46XBR8 represents the best that Sony has to offer in the LCD HDTV realm, but be prepared to pay for such cutting-edge technology.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-46XBR8 LCD HDTV

 

LCD flat panels now dominate the television marketplace. But despite their popularity, they have been notably inferior to the best plasma sets in the depth of their blacks and the quality of their shadow detail.

The remote control does not offer direct selection of inputs, but it is backlit. You can change the timeout period for the backlighting (the first time I've seen this feature), and the remote can also control three other components.
