Sony KLV-40ZX1M - 40 LCD TV review: Sony KLV-40ZX1M - 40 LCD TV

 

Sony KLV-40ZX1M - 40 LCD TV

Ultrathin panel creates a high-tech design; hidden cords; relatively accurate color; numerous picture controls; energy efficient.

Extremely expensive; subpar black-level performance and color saturation; uneven screen uniformity; scant connectivity with just one HDMI input.

As the first large-screen edge-lit LED-based LCD, Sony's KLV-40ZX1M looks stunning turned off, but it falls short when powered up.

Sony Bravia KLV-40ZX1M LCD HDTV First Impressions Review - Intro

 

The Sony Bravia KLV-40ZX1M is an ultra-thin flat-screen LCD HDTV priced at $3,999. If that sounds high relative to other 40" HDTV's, it is, but you get one of the thinnest displays on the market at 9.9mm, and it also boasts Sony's latest technology for...

The KLV-40ZX1M is an incredibly stylish TV with some high-end specs that would be the flamboyant centerpiece of any home theater set-up. However, we're really disappointed by the lack of ports and the necessity of an accessory that could cost up to...

Thin, great wireless system, decent speakers

Expensive, contrast could be better

As a technological tour de force, we’re extremely impressed with the Sony Bravia KDL40ZX1. It’s ultra-thin, delivers good picture quality and the wireless video streaming is an innovation we're hoping will become commonplace.

Sony KDL-40ZX1 review

 

Sony's 40" slims down for the high-end LCD world

Well-connected external media box ; Sexy form factor

Edge-mounted LEDs don't offer the same contrast as rear-mounted LED back-lighting ; Some motion smearing ; Speakers only an optional extra

This is a beautiful looking TV with a decent separate media receiver but picture issues and some minor technical flaws let down the overall score

Sony Bravia KDL40ZX1

 

The Sony Bravia KDL40ZX1 is a beautiful looking television, and while picture quality is generally good it's restrained by a first-gen wireless technology.

Beautiful design ; Slim ; Decent black levels ; Detailed pictures

Smearing when using wireless ; Expensive ; Off-axis and backlight clouding issues

The ZX1 originally appeared for AU$7399, but has now dropped to a little more affordable price of AU$5499. Yet even at this price it's still not able to compete.

Screen televisions more willowy and thin.

 

More willowy and thin, so Sony issued a series of television super thin LCD screen of 40 inches, that is, the KDL-40ZX1, with the size of only 9.9 millimeter thick. Because the super thin screen of the ZX1 is only 12.2 kilograms. ZX1 has a capacity...
