Excerpt: The Sony XBR-46HX929 is the 46-inch version of the Editors' Choice LCD HDTV , the Sony XBR-HX929 ($2,599.99, 4.5 stars). It includes built-in Wi-Fi, 3D support, and a variety of Web apps. We have not yet tested this model in the labs, but the 55HX929 proved to have excellent black levels and color temperature, producing one of the best pictures we've seen in an LED LCD HDTV.
Excerpt: Packed with features, Sony’s latest top-line Bravia XBR 3DTVs are very well equipped (they currently offer two sizes in the HX929 series, a 55-incher and the 46-inch model tested here, with a third 65-inch version due to arrive in stores around Labor Day) and all three models provide 3D playback and 2D-3D upconversion, along with a broad suite of Internet apps, built-in Wi-Fi, and numerous video streaming content providers.
Conclusion: Sony is certainly charging a premium price for the HX929 series but, to its credit, the sets deliver excellent picture quality, great 3D performance, useful features and plenty of other bells and whistles in a very smart-looking display. Enthusiasts searching for the very best in cutting-edge, performance TVs give one of the HX929 series’ three sizes a serious look.
