Sony KDL-46EX640 Review: 46” LED LCD HDTV
Up for Review: Sony KDL-46EX640 LED LCD HDTV. The 46-inch non-3D TV set comes with features that allows the users to access a wide variety of online and offline digital content in addition to watching the television programs and shows. You may not expect the model to be popular among your kids as it does not support their favorite 3D movies and video games. But the overall audio and video quality offered by the TV set will allow your family members to watch their favorite television programs with improved resolution, contract ratio and black levels.
At the same time, you can use the networking and connectivity options offered by the model to access additional digital content from various online and offline sources. However, the model lacks some of the advanced features offered by other high-end TV sets launched by the manufacturer. It offers 1080p HD resolution that is the high enough to suit a wide variety of 2D and normal television programs like news, weather, family dramas and talk shows. Further, the dynamic backlight control automatically adjusts the video light output based on the availability of light in your main living room.
The model also offers 240 Hz refresh rate that is lower than the subfield motion rate offered by other TV sets announced by Sony. But the rate is high enough to remove the motion blur while watching the faster moving sports and action scenes. Your kids will love the feature to access their favorite video games, and watch the sports and action channels. The overall video and audio quality offered by the model will complement the entertainment requirements of a modern family.
