Sony KDL-40R450A Review


Model: Sony KDL-40R450A 40-Inch 60Hz 1080p LED HDTV (Black)

Sony KDL-40R450ABuy Sony KDL-40R450A

Sony is renowned for making high end world class products – so to find a new 1080p 40 inch LED TV from Sony just under $500 is unexpected. As part of the R450 series, these Sony televisions have most of the basic functionalities that you will usually need.

One of the reasons for a low price of this Sony flat screen TV is that its 40” display has a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The higher the refresh rate (higher priced TVs have 120 Hz or greater) the smoother and clearer is the picture while viewing anything with fast motion (like a car chase, or a high action movie). Usually with a 60 Hz refresh rate, some fast motion gets displayed as a blur. Fortunately in this TV, Sony has what it calls, Motionflow XR 120 technology, that provides clearer and sharper sports or action sequences. READ MORE
