Sony's BRAVIA KDL-46Z4100
was high on the list of LCD HDTV shoppers when announced earlier this year, and if you've been loosely pinching those pennies awaiting a review before pulling the trigger, here goes. CNET
was able to grapple the 46-incher and spend a few days testing its performance, and overall, it seems like a solid buy. As expected in a set of this caliber, the color decoding and primary colors were deemed accurate enough, black levels were satisfactorily deep and dejudder processing was impressive as well. The occasional backlight fluctuation in dark areas and exclusion of video files in the network streaming function were the only real digs, netting the HDTV a respectable 7.6 out of 10 rating. So, is worth the $2,200+ price tag? Possibly, but it's probably worth seeing in person before buying on impulse alone.
