Conclusion: While Sony’s R450A is an attractive, option packed TV, its poor off-axis performance and lack of control over intrusive features like MotionFlow have us looking elsewhere. At the $500 price point, your money will go further with competing models from the likes of Samsung and LG. Still, there’s something beautiful about how Sony renders its HD content.
Pros: Brilliant colors, Light weight, attractive design, Packed with features, Renders sports and fast-paced video well
Cons: Extremely narrow viewing axis, Unnecessarily confusing options, Fixed Motion smoothing feature creates soap opera effect on films
