  • 2. What Owners Found Out About The 46 in SonyBraviaKDL-46EX500 LCD HD TVHere are the findings of owners who have done extensive research to buy the bestHD LCD TV in the price range… quality, fair priced TV – The 46 in Sony5.0 out of 5 stars ExcellentBravia KDL-46EX500., April 28, 2010By OZ (New Jersey USA) I did an extensive research for my new TV. I compared consumer reviews, professional reviews and checked couple TVs picture myself. My conclusions at the end of research: 1. 3D Samsung - I dont see this technology is ready for home use. 3D picture cause headache for lots of viewers, 3D effect diminishes a lot if you are watching TV more than 4 feet away from the screen, and who wants to wear these glasses all the time? Another factor is cost. It is high for what you really get. This technology will be much more interesting once it gets mature, but not yet. 2. LED technology - I looked at edge led calibrated display by Samsung and I think its not bad, but I see hallow of light at the edge of tv which reduces perceptual contrast. Otherwise edge led looks very similar to regular LCD, such I cant justify 30% more on average price increase. 3. Samsung reliability vs Sony. Lots of people believe that Samsung is more reliable, but checking forums I discovered that Samsung has number of hardware issues with their tvs and reliability is not that great. Sony used to be great couple of Page 2 of 12
  • 3. years ago, then reliability went down and it appears that theyare trying to recover their reputation back now.At the end, number of issues between Sony and Samsung issomewhere the same with Samsung having more hardwarerelated issues and Sony has more software bugs. Software iseasier to fix with new firmware release. This is based on theirolder models, since you need some time, year or longer of use toevaluate long term reliability.I bought thisSony Bravia 46 inat BJ and calibrated using AVIAHD and Avia Standard definition DVDs. I use it to play PS3 andmy Home Theater PC.1. Contrast - very good. In dark room I notice a little lightleaking in the upper comers of the TV. The picture itself has verydeep blacks and excellent whites. So far its one of the bestresults Ive seen on any LCD.2. Sharpness - perfect, but watch for setting in video mode. My46 in Sony Bravia KDL-46EX500 TV went to overscan with HTPCconnected over HDMI. It was easy to fix by changing settings topixel mapping for HDMI port.3. Brightness - its LCD so it can be very bright. I liked Sonyimplementation of automatic brightness. It changes brightnessbased on available light in the room. The result is picture looksmore natural to watch when you turn off the lights, and stillbright enough picture during sunny day. Note: I calibrated thescreen with low lights in the room, its how I normally watchmovies.4. Colors - not too bad from manufacture, but definitelyimproved after calibration. Very lifelike at the end.

  • 4. Conclusion: Im completely satisfied with picture quality of this 46 in Sony Bravia KDL-46EX500 display and I feel this TV gives you more per dollar than any other.

"Lou-ne-tunes" (Nashville, TN USA) I was looking for am LCD TV for my basement bonus room and found this to be one of the best 46" LCDs out there. I also purchased a Sony Receiver and Sony Blu-ray player with this TV. The Video quality is excellent even on standard definition TV. Unlike the 32" Samsung we have in our living room, this TV will actually auto adjust the screen to fit the signal (I get very tired of changing it manually on the other TV). The Bravia Sync feature between the three Sony components is one of the best I have seen. It sends all control thru HDMI and you can control Page 4 of 12

Ho Sound and picture quality is excellent. Delivery was speedy and professional. Will buy from seller again.5.0 out of 5 stars The 46 in Sony Bravia KDL-46EX500 Is SimplyAWESOME!, April 15, 2010By H. Brand "MadMax" (South Africa) By now, you probably done loads of research on the different LCD TVs.. Samsung, Toshiba etc. I purchased this set a few days ago and have it hanging on a sturdy wall mount. What I can say is that the image quality is vivid and you will not be disappointed in the feature set. The motionflow100 is definitely something new and takes some getting used to. You may not want to have it ON all the time. Though when watching fast films for action scenes and sports, it will definitely make a difference. The TV has a very rich set of options and features, including slide shows and the handy USB port.Which only accepts FAT32 formatted USB also requires registration to unlock certain DivX functionality. Overall, I believe that the 46 in Sony Bravia is the BEST LCD currently on the market - in this price range. With Page 5 of 12
  • 6. motionflowand the USB port being the deciding factor for me. It was well worth it. Remember, no wireless, no presence sensor, no internet connectivity. That wasnt a train smash for me. The image is crisp and vivid, HD films are an amazing experience on this TV. Now Im off to get the right sound setup. If you done the research and have the money, GO FOR IT.. I doubt youll ever look back. ENJOY..5.0 out of 5 stars Another good one for Amazon !, April 19, 2010By H. Betz "TV Guy Retired" (Hoffman Estates, IL, US) Amazon delivered again. I purchased the 4 in Sony Bravia EX 500 LCD TV 120 hz, and was again surprised at the speed and delivery of the TV. I really studied all the TVs out there within my price range and screen size I wanted. The TV worked well as it came out of the box. Great HD picture. Thought it was 3D at first. Fine picture from a narrow angle.Sound is also everything I wanted. Another winner from Amazon. I have not been disappointed by any purchases made from Amazon as long as I have been buying from them.5.0 out of 5 stars Very Happy, April 30, 2010By Q Very happy with this TV, for the price I believe it to be one of the better 46" LCD on the market. I compared to Samsung and Aquos before I bought this But Im glad I went with the Sony. I liked the picture on the Samsung models but I heard of too Page 6 of 12
  • 7. mano problems with the new C series they offer so I didnt want something that wasnt going to be reliable. I believe the A and B Series are awesome sets and even though they are older models they still sell for more than this Sony or The new C model Samsungs. Ive always like the picture on the Aquos sets but when I saw a comparable price Aquos at the store it looked blurry and very low tone picture. When you start up this Sony set, the Sony logo pops up and the TV make a sound, almost like a PC would, I think this is cool but some people may find this start up annoying. The sound on this set is different and takes some getting used to, not there is anything wrong with it, its just different, but than again, that is what surround sound is for. All in all, Im very happy with this set! And Sony reliability has been proven throughout the years.Hurry, click here to see if you can still catch the 20-25% discount that Amazon is offering… Sony BRAVIA KDL-46EX500 1080P 120Hz 46-Inch LCD HD TV Page 7 of 12
  • 8. 5.0 out of 5 stars The 46 in Sony Bravia is an Excellent TV, February 8,2011By Ryan Mindemann (North Dakota) I purchased this TV about 3 months ago after looking at some LG and Samsung. I was determined to buy an LED LCD TV at the time but after looking at the TVs in person I couldnt see what I was really paying extra for. I decided on the Sony because I thought it had better color then the Samsung. Samsung appeared to be a cooler color temp picture and the warmer Sony just looked better. The Bravia Sync works well with my Sony Blu Ray player and makes it easier to use. So much so that Im considering buying a soundbar to match. I currently use a receiver and speakers because the audio of this TV is pretty bad. I did not deduct it any stars though because all of the thin LCD TVs have crappy speakers now its just part of physics. You cant squeeze out bass from 2" of TV depth. The ambient light sensor also works well, and the TV is just a joy to look at. Black levels are great I havent noticed any glitches or bug in the firmware. A solid TV that provides good value for what you pay. I like it so much Im considering another for a different room.5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely No Regrets!, May 5, 2010By D. Knight Ive owned this TV for about 2 months now, and have watched many different formats on it including DVDs and Blu-Ray, streaming NetFlix, over-the-air HD local channels, and SD/HD Page 8 of 12
  • 9. cable. I fall in love with the TV every time I watch something onit. My wife can attest to the constant stream of "wows" comingfrom my mouth while watching HD nature and travel shows.Action flicks? Awesome!As many of you have done, I researched many different brandsand models prior to making this purchase, using the Internetand in-person at local brick-and-mortar shops. Ive always beena Sony fan, and didnt hesitate long when I realized that I couldhave a 120 Hz Sony LDC TV of this size for less than $1000. Thisis one of the few major purchases that Ive ever made wherethere hasnt been any sort of buyers remorse.The feature set is light compared to some of the newer modelsout there. It doesnt have Internet apps built in, its 120 Hzversus 240 Hz, and its not an LED-LCD. As far as Im concerned,most of those bells and whistles are unnecessary. I picked up a$160 Sony Blu-Ray player that covers the Internet streaming. Ireally like the convenience of Bravia Sync integration betweenmy different enabled components. Definitely a cool feature.This review is for the picture right out of the box. I am intendingto calibrate it, and can only imagine that the picture quality willbe even better!One final far as sound goes, I exclusively use externalsound through my home theater system, so in comparison, ofcourse the built-in speakers sound really weak. Youll have todraw your own conclusion in that department.Cheers! Page 9 of 12

Hurry, click here to see if you can still catch the 20-25% discount that Amazon is offering… Sony BRAVIA KDL-46EX500 1080P 120Hz 46-Inch LCD HD TV5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a TV with good picture qualitywithout a lot of features this TV is for you, December 25, 2010By The Penguin (Santa Clara, CA) I spent a lot of time during Thanksgiving looking for a new TV and doingresearch. Money isnt really a constraint for me, but I wanted to try to findthe sweet spot. I didnt want 3D or internet. I wanted a basic tv with goodquality that will last a long time. After looking at Consumer Reports, reading reviews on Amazon, CNET and severalonline forums, I narrowed my selection to the Samsung LN46C630 and the SonyKDL-46EX500. I went to several stores to look at these tvs. Depending on how well the tvs were adjusted, these two tvs looked about the same. The Samsungis less expensive, but all the reviews I read were consistent in mentioning"panel lottery". No where did I read about anyone complaining about poorpicture quality with Sony. Be aware that tvs in different sizes may usedifferent Page 10 of 12
  • 11. lcdpanels, so be careful about reading a review for a 46" tv andapplying it to 32" tv. You can find AV forums where someonehas publishedwhat LCD panels are used in the various sizes.The bottom line is that Sony has good picture quality (especiallyflesh tones and deep black is also good). A number of peopleremarked about sub par soundquality, but I have AudioengineA5 powered speakers connected to the tv.There are plenty of connectors on this thing including 4 HDMI (Iam connecting satellite, blue ray and computer and still have aspare).I didnt know if the lcd/led was worth the extra money. I wentto the localSonystyle store where they had four 46" EX modelson display side by side:400, 500, 700, 800. I could see thebenefits of 500 (120 Hz) over 400 (60Hz), but honestly I couldntsee an advantage to the more expensive led model.The color quality on 500 was just as good if not better than thehigher end models. I concluded that led did not really offerdiscernible improvedpicture quality and I should NOT spendmoney on it. The led was thinner andlighter, but 30 vs 38lbsdoesnt matter and power consumption on led isntthat muchlower.This tv replaced a Costco special 720p Akai 27" lcdtv which hada verticalrow of pixels missing. I sit 8 from the tv and at firstconsidered a 40" tvas a replacement. After reading therecommendations for screen size vsviewing distance I went withthe 46". It seemed huge at first but after 3weeks of owning thistv, it sems just right! The prices of 40, 46, 55 inchtvs in this model class scale linearly with the number pixels. Page 11 of 12
  • 12. I have never purchased an extended warranty, but with only a one year warranty(standard for all lcdtvs) and reading CNET, I purchased the extendedwarranty on Amazon. Finally, I was nervous about buying an expensive electronics product andhaving it shipped and handled by gorillas. But there were no Amazoncomplaints about shipping and for 40" or larger tvs, they contract the freightshippers. My guess is that this tv was probably assembled in Mexico, it wasaired from DFW, put on a truck and two guys showed up in a Penske truck anddelivered the tv in the time slot that I selected when I purchased the tv. Iam happy with my experience purchasing a tvthrouh Amazon. I am not an AV nut. I am extremely happy with the overall quality of this tv and recommend it if you are looking for a decent TV without lots of features. I expect to be using this tv for at least the next 6 years. I really like this 46 in Sony Braviatv!Hurry, click here to see if you can still catch the 20-25% discount that Amazon is offering… Sony BRAVIA KDL-46EX500 1080P 120Hz 46-Inch LCD HD TV Page 12 of 12
