Sony Bravia KDL40Z4500

 

Australia's first TV with a 200Hz mode.

Great 200Hz motion mode, excellent contrast and blacks, DLNA certified, good SD performance for a 1080p screen

Some annoying judder when not running Motion Flow, default Cinema setting may be too soft for some

Sony's Bravia KDL40Z4500 is a fantastic Full HD TV. It's Australia's first 200Hz television and it provides an excellent Motion Flow mode; the real faults we could find with it were a question of personal taste.

Sony KDL-40Z4500

 

This Sony delivers a fine flatscreen picture and excellent sound; arguably best in class

Super smooth with action scenes ; crisp, detailed image ; beefy sound for a flatscreen ; a delight to use

Some of Sony's sets are less, and almost as good

Sony KDL-40Z4500 review

 

Sony's flagship LCD is the first 200Hz TV we've tested. Does it live up to the hype?

Not cheap, but a very fine TV with amazing black depth for an LCD

Sony Bravia KDL-40Z4500 review

 

Sony's 40Z4500 is a pricey but solid performer that's fairly run-of-the-mill

Nicely naturalistic pictures ; Solid all-round performance

Slightly high price ; Mildly unadventurous execution

A generally solid, but ultimately rather unexciting set that's unlikely to set movie fans' hearts aflutter

Sony KDL-40Z4500

 

An excellent LCD TV but not the technological leap forward we had hoped for ..

Although the 200Hz does not entirely convince, the KDL-40Z4500 is actually an excellent LCD TV in all areas. Are only concern is the relatively high price.

Sony KDL40W4500 / KDL40W4500U Review

 

In Sony's efforts to expand their LCD TV empire by catering to buyers with different requirements and budgets, they have come up with more range and models of Bravia LCD televisions than you can shake a stick at. We have tested the latest W4500 series,...

The deep blacks, accurate colours and low input lag on Sony’s latest high-end (W series and above) LCD HDTVs need no further praise, so we’re left to comment on the Sony KDL40Z4500's 200Hz Motionflow implementation.

Sony KDL-40Z4500

 

The only draw back to this TV is, no manner of updating the firmware, I have experienced intermitten picture and sound problems with the HDMI ports, I have all my HDMI devices connected through my Sony surround system.

Sony KDL-40Z4500

 

Very good picture quality, and good sound even when cinema system isn't engaged.

The only 'fault' I can think of is the slow start up after switching on the TV, but only because the 'save energy' option is selected!

Sony KDL-40Z4500

 

Mostly everything about this model is perfect. Really 200Hz is so immersive. I use the TV for a PC monitor and my friends all want to have one for their own. I play PS3 games on the screen and just turning on the PS3 has the Bravia on the right source...

BUT! I am a little sad there are no firmware updates for this model. I am not saying I can really find to many things I would change but SONY you know the menu system is really not very nice to use. As with the PS3 as well. You need to start putting...
