Sony KDL-46V3000

Sony KDL-46V3000 is a 46 inches BRAVIA V Series LCD flat panel HDTV. Among its main features include full HD 1080p, BRAVIA Engine EX, 10-bit display panel and processing, 1080/24p input capable, Photo HD and designed in piano black finish.

Features

The KDL-46V3000 offers best resolution through its 1920 x 1080 display panels with over 2 million pixels. Besides that, it also enables to display billions of colours via the Sony’s 10-bit processor and 10-bit display, which 64 times the levels of colour expression than an 8-bit panel. BRAVIA Engine™ EX full digital video processing system adds the ability to up convert 480i standard definition signals (such as 480i DVDs and TV broadcasts) via Digital Reality Creation Multi Function v1.0 (DRC-MF v1.0) technology, which renders a picture with four times the density of the original one resulting in a picture with more detail and definition. With the combination with the WCG-CCFL backlight in LCD HDTVs or the optical engine in our MDPJ HDTVs, Live Color Creation technology achieves wide colour reproduction using advanced chroma signal processing algorithms that provides more vibrant and truer colour expressions. Moreover, it also features Sony’s Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) with on-contrast ratio performance of 1,800:1; and the Dynamic Contrast Ratio is up to 13,000:1, which optimized by using real-time image processing to adjust the contrast along with optimizing backlight levels. Plus, it features 24p True Cinema that displays most films at its normal shot rate. Sony's Digital Media Extender (DMex) ready televisions offer a digital connection path for other optional modules. In addition, Xross Media Bar™ enables easier and faster controls. BRAVIA® Theatre Sync™ enables simple instruction and procedure for the user to transform the TV to a theatre AV experience. It also features S-Force Front Surround that provides virtual surround sound by its two speakers built-in. HDMI technology supports enhanced or High Definition video, together with multi-channel digital audio to provide matchless image and sound reproduction. It also enables PC connectivity.

Review Summary

Sony has been quite busy these last few months, with a number of new releases almost going right and left. Among the latest in Sony’s line of flat panel LCD television sets is the Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000.

It is obvious that this beauty aims to please. With 46 inches of screen encased in a glossy piano-black bezel sitting prettily on its rectangular stand, you will not have any problems in putting it in your living room, your bedroom or your den, or wherever you want it to be in. Wherever it is placed, it is sure to make for an attractive focal piece, simple, elegant and classy.

Of course, how the product looks like when it is off is so much different when it is turned on. Fortunately, the Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000 also hits its mark in this area. Colors are crisp and natural, as can be expected from an LCD HD TV set. All colors certainly look alive when you view a picture on the Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000’s screen. Also, Sony’s very own Advanced Contrast Enhancer allows the shadows and the blacks in any picture go even deeper, but without sacrificing detail. This is thanks to the dynamic contrast of this set, which is pegged at 13,000:12.

Another delicious feature of the Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000 is its 24p True Cinema, which makes movie and video viewing a dreamy experience. In addition, if you want to play console games on your TV or connect it to your PC, the Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000 has a decent connectivity suite, which includes two HDMI inputs, a PC video input and a PC audio input. So you can connect any console gaming device or your computer to the television without any problems.

Of course, since most HD TVs cannot fully process analog or standard definition TV input, the same can be said for the Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000; the pictures can be blurry when the signal fed to it is analog or SD. There is a little glare too, but it is quite negligible.

Anyhow, the Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000 certainly aims to please.
