    LCD Televisions: the Sony Bravia KDL-46W5100 and the Samsung UN46B8000

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Today we will venture into the LCD TV world and take a look at two 46-inch selections: the Sony Bravia KDL-46W5100 and the Samsung UN46B8000. Along with examining their features, we'll see if they're worth their substantial price tags.

    Sony Bravia KDL-46W5100 LCD TV

    The Sony Bravia KDL-46W5100 is a 1080p LCD TV with a 46-inch display that offers plenty of connectivity options, picture adjustments, and interactive features. It is the least expensive television from Sony to feature the manufacturer’s new interactive suite. The KDL-46W5100 is not cheap though, and has a listed retail price of $1,699. It comes with a one year standard warranty on parts and labor.

    The Bravia KDL-46W5100 comes with several picture adjustment settings to satisfy even the pickiest consumer. As for the basics, there are four color temperature presets as well as two noise reduction settings. There are seven preset modes available such as Sports, Game, PC, and Cinema, to name a few, which should suit different viewing needs. Luckily, you can adjust each mode independently per input, which saves time from having to constantly switch back and forth every time you enable a different device.

    For HD sources, there are four different aspect ratio modes on the KDL-46W5100. Also for HD, there is a Full Pixel option that will display 1,080 content minus any overscan or scaling. For those who like to tweak more advanced picture settings, there are plenty of adjustable options for tuning gamma, color, white balance, and more.

    While the Sony Bravia KDL-46W5100 does provide consumers with a nice range of adjustable settings, its interactive features are its main selling point. The KDL-46W5100 comes with Bravia Internet Video Link enabled, which allows users to access online video and music by hooking up the television to the Internet through an Ethernet cable. Fans of Netflix will be glad to hear that Sony plans to integrated the streaming video service into the Bravia Internet Video Link in the near future, which will automatically give subscribers the ability to watch loads of streaming movies right on their TV sets.

    For the time being, though, Amazon Video On Demand is available, which also has some HD content. Free content is available as well through other providers, such as YouTube, CBS, Sports Illustrated, and more. While the free content is not exactly stimulating, it does give you some options to kill time when you’re bored.
