Summary: Sony's midlevel KDL-46W4100 gets you solid dejudder video processing but otherwise its picture quality falls short of the top tier.
Pros: Produces a deep level of black; accurate primary colors; dejudder mode smoothes moving video with few artifacts; screen attenuates ambient lighting; solid connectivity with four HDMI and one PC input; numerous picture controls including white balance; attractive styling with transparent pane below screen.
Cons: Black level fluctuates in dark areas; less accurate color decoding; below-average viewing angle; cumbersome menu system.
Summary: One of the most promising things to come out of the competitive and profitable LCD TV market is that major companies, such as Sony, are starting to offer the consumer more features for less money. The Sony KDL-46W4100 fits this profile, as it is the cheapest model in the popular BRAVIA LCD line, yet it offers up such premium specs as a 120Hz, deep black levels and a refresh rate that will have your moving images looking silky smooth.
