Summary: Overall, the Sony makes for a nice TV when a good quality HD signal is present. If you have an overly compressed signal via OTA or Cable you won't be happy with what you see. To really show off this set, you should also consider buying a Blu-ray player. Please do not leave the set in its default settings. At a minimum switch it to Cinema mode. Better yet calibrate it with any of the calibration DVDs or have a professional do it for you.
Summary: When displaying high definition material, the BRAVIA KDL-46XBR4 conspicuously showcases all of Sony's video processing prowess. But what endears this HDTV to me is how well it handles mundane standard def material and backs it up with a rather impressive integrated sound system. This solid all terrain performance makes it stand out in the HDTV crowd.
