|This TV is just right for our small living room area. The sound quality is very good. The viewing is awesome from any angle or distance. Great tv. Full 1080p/24 picture that makes blu ray almost 3d like. My Xbox 360 in 1080p is just amazing.|

High-end LCD has motion sickness
With its latest LCD model, Sony should really be hitting its atscreen stride. But instead John Archer nds it stumbling
he second instalment of our plasma vs LCD investigation goes right to the heart of the LCD market Sonys hugely popular Bravia range. The KDL-46W3000 resides in the upper end of the brands atpanel TV stable, and sports most of Sonys televisual bells and whistles. Expectations for the screen are obviously high, especially with that 1,700 (or thereabouts) price tag. Seeing that you can pick up a great-performing 50in plasma for considerably less, youd want this to be a top-quality product. How disappointing to report, then, that this Bravia falls short.
optimistic, but our independent real world contrast test revealed a ratio of 3,351:1 after calibration, which is still impressive. As a result, you get
Product: A 46in LCD TV with Bravia Engine EX processing Position: The W3000 series is the second highest in Sonys latest LCD range, behind the X Series Peers: Toshiba 47Z3030 Panasonic TH-50PX70
a boost in black level over previous Sony LCDs, many
of which have been found wanting in this key area. The 46W3000 utilises the latest iteration of Sonys Bravia Engine EX picture processing suite. A cocktail of silicon which handles noise reduction, colour, contrast and ne detail. In addition to the wide gamut DeepColor compatibility that comes with its HDMI v1.3 inputs, Sony has added a digital photo colour-space option, along with the facility to manually adjust the general colour matrix and RGB dynamic range. Other notable trickery tucked away in the extensive onscreen menus are an optional game/text mode designed to optimize the picture when watching sources with ne text; both standard and MPEG noise reduction options; Sonys Live Colour system which combines Wide Colour Gamut backlights with chroma signal processing to boost colour range. In my opinion only Philips can boast TVs with anywhere near the same level of exibility and processing power.
The bare facts
Visually, the set is attractive without being particularly contemporaneous. While the bezel around the 46in screen is chunkier than the current vogue, it at least features a brushed metal nish thats as distinctive as it is luxurious. The sets connections are in line with its aspirations: you get three v1.3 HDMI inputs, a PC input and digital audio output jack, and two component video inputs. Plus there is the usual RGB Scart (x2), composite and S-video trio. Naturally the panel offers Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, and Sony claims a contrast ratio of 16,000:1, courtesy of a dynamic backlight. This gure is, of course, outlandishly
For all this high falutin processing
stuff, though, you dont get Sonys MotionFlow 100Hz system for tackling LCDs problems with motion blur. And actually the lack of this proves pretty disastrous Out of the box, the Sony exhibits a very accurate colour temperature (measured by our Tech Labs at 6250K), with red levels slightly high. A few minutes spent manually tweaking the RGB levels gives an almost perfect result. Once calibrated, I started my evaluation with Sky News via the TVs digital tuner; I was impressed by how well the 46W3000 deals with the intense colour palette this channel uses. The skin tones are particularly good. Id rate its tonality superior to the last Sony LCD I reviewed. The deep blues of the studio backdrop are lush and credible too, as well as possessing unusually subtle blends that give the images exceptional depth and solidity. Red accuracy isnt great, looking a touch orange at times. But overall, Id rate this set as one of the nicer TVs available when it comes to colour subtlety and range. As mentioned earlier, the black level is also good. Theres shadow detail held in the black suits of some of Skys newsreaders and tones avoid the grey wash common to lesser LCD TVs. Noise levels are generally low. However, it wasnt long before the sets lack of clarity with

A mixed bunch: This 46in LCD offers copious picture tweaks, but suffers from a lack of 100Hz processing
standard-denition DVB sources began to irritate. SD pictures dont look especially sharp, even with the noise reduction circuits kept to a minimum. This has the effect of sometimes making skin look a bit waxy. The screen fares better with high-denition sources, although the impression of softness remains. Skin tones (particularly notable during a run-through of The Da Vinci Code on Sky Movies HD) lack the glorious detail that makes hi-def so special, to the extent that HD
screens, with 100Hz processing, fare much better. The Da Vinci Codes night-time scenes in The Louvre denitely display signs of clouding of the darkest corners. Even worse, at times there appears to be a curious purple tinge to dark areas of the picture thats sometimes really noticeable especially if youve got the backlight set any higher than zero, or possibly one. Weird. And not at all wonderful.
Pre-calibration colour temperature is pretty close out of the box at 6250K (Point A), with Red high at 112% (Point B). Manual adjustment gives a perfect figure with just a little tweaking Before calibration Colour temperature: 6250K Contrast ratio: 3547:1 Luminance: 103.7fL RGB: 112 /96/104 After calibration Colour temperature: 6505K (User) Contrast ratio: 3235:1 Luminance: 90.5fL RGB: 100/100/100
Sonically the 46W3000 is good, with an open mid-range, nice vocal tone and reasonable amounts of only slightly harsh treble information. However, its not a match on Panasonics Advanced Smart Speaker system as seen on the TH-65PZ700 (HCC #153). This Sony is a little bass-lite. In the end, though, its the 46W3000s pictures that dene the product. And although Id calibrated the set using all the tools available, overall they have to rank as a serious disappointment. When it comes to the plasma vs LCD debate, the evidence is clear. Although LCD is the most ubiquitous atpanel technology on the planet, and improvements are coming thick and fast, if the raw picture performance of this Sony is anything to go by, manufacturers still need to up their game to compete
pictures often look only marginally better than standard DVDs not what the
HD-hungry atscreen buyer will be hoping for, especially from a brand with as much cachet (and ubiquitous advertising) as Sony.
In a blur
This lack of clarity is largely attributable to LCD blur, which transpires to be a signicant problem for Sonys 46W3000. The car chase in War (R2 DVD), for example, becomes an incoherent, smeary mess. When Jason Statham leaps from his totalled automobile, his face remains in the driving seat. Not at all satisfactory. Motion resolution is poor. As soon as anything passes across the screen, even at quite slow speeds, the picture loses signicant clarity. I can only hope that Sonys agship X-Series
