Sony KDL-46EX400 Review: 46” LCD HDTV
Up for Review: Sony KDL-46EX400 LCD TV. 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. People have a fascination for Sony and they are proud to make it a part of their display in the living room. This 46-inch model will further add to the décor because of its ideal size and enhanced picture quality. Sony has opted to retain the same looks as the previous year and has not included the four-legged stand in the lower end models.
There is still something to look forward to in this model. It retains the 1080p display resolution. It is really a pleasure to watch movies in 1080p resolution. Even the tiniest details are brought to life and you can actually feel the difference when you see movies using the Blu-ray disc player and the ones telecast on TV. The programs on TV have not yet been upgraded to 1080p and you have to be content with watching 720p even if your TV is capable of showing 1080p pictures. And with this 46-inch TV and home theater system, you will hardly feel the need to go to the theater.

The presence sensor has not been included in this TV which would have really caused a lot of power conservation but the light sensor and the ambient sensor are very much present. The light sensor controls the amount of light which should be soothing for the eyes and also conserves power. The ambient sensor makes sure that the color is perfect according to the settings in the room. All these features are designed to provide the right kind of picture quality which will not hurt your eyes if you watch TV for long hours and also keep your electricity bills in check.
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 camcorders. And if all of these are Bravia Sync compatible, then you need just one remote to control all of them. This is a wonderful feature which helps you attain a semblance of order in the room without having to deal with all kinds of remotes attached to the respective devices. This TV is a good one to purchase for a sum of $999 MSRP.
