Is this a gift? Please note that this item ships in its own packaging and cannot be gift-wrapped or concealed.
LED Display Technology: LED (light-emitting diode) TVs are actually a type of LCD TV. LCD HDTVs use standard compact fluorescent tubes to illuminate the picture. LED HDTVs, on the other hand, replace those fluorescent tubes with backlighting technology. LED TVs might therefore say "LCD display" on the packaging--this is perfectly normal.

Take your entertainment to a higher level

This is going to be a treat. A day of movies with your best friends and it's time for an old favourite. But this time it looks better than you've ever seen it. And it's all thanks to your new R45.

There are little details you never noticed before, like the engravings on the swords used in the epic battle. It's more than Full HD, a suite of smart technology inside makes everything clearer and brighter. The clanging of armour and weapons seems smoother, more natural with Motionflow XR 100Hz. Now the swashbuckling duel is about to begin. This time the action seems to fly off the screen ‐ clearer, faster and punchier than you remember. That's Clear Resolution Enhancer at work.

But there's no time to think about that, here comes the climax. Racing across the plain, the heroes' faces light up, as the sun plays off their hair, adorned with brilliant red and green costumes. A Direct LED backlit screen ensures colours are pure and contrast is high. Great film, great, great laughs ‐ you've got to do this again soon.

All the emotion of Full HD entertainment

From a tear rolling down the hero's face to the joyful look in the heroine's eye, the R45 reveals new levels of detail. Experience a Full HD resolution picture enhanced by a suite of technologies to produce sharper images, smoother action and sumptuous colour contrast.

Heighten the detail, heighten the drama

The final duel's about to get more tense. Take HD detail a step further with Clear Resolution Enhancer ‐ a noise reduction and image enhancement technology that delivers a clear difference from standard LED TV. Images are crisp, textures are defined, and heightened contrast boosts on‐screen depth perception. An arrow shot from a bow will almost burst through your screen.

Stunning picture particularly on all the HD channels - and channel re-ordering very quick and simple, allowing BBC1 HD to be at position 1, BBC2 HD at 2 etc. (unlike some models I looked at which don't allow re-ordering of Freeview channels).

Set itself is very stylish. Very minimalist and the brushed aluminium stand looks amazing.

Sony's user interface is great making setup and configuration VERY VERY EASY.

Size Name: 46 inch
We were after a replacement TV for the family room as the our existing Sony 32inch was too small for the room. I was pretty much sold on the W6 50" but it is expensive and as such we were saving up. We were in a retail store at the weekend and by chance, this one was in the clearance. I noticed it straight away (ex display 46" tv for £400 with 5 year warranty). I'm glad I bought this on a whim as it is excellent.

I agree with the reviewers who have said that the colours do seem a little washed out when viewed from an angle but the room set-up we have is where the sofa is directly opposite the TV so this is no problem for us. It isn't 'smart' or wi-fi', both of which I dismissed as un-necessary because we have a Roku box and an Xbox360 connected for things like iPlayer, Netflix, etc.

The Freeview HD is fantastic. We watched Sherlock in HD at the time of broadcast over the weekend and it looked and sounded great.

Picture: I have played with the settings a little and now have a picture which, in my opinion, is superb. I know that there are better TVs out there with better motion technology, but match of the day was great, games on xbox are great, and movies were great. I am no professional but I am a keen consumer who doesn't buy rubbish and would be critical if there were issues and I cannot see any. CBeebies in HD....who knew???

Sound: The sound is ok, but I use some old creative 2.1 PC speakers and sub plugged into headphone jack which sounds so much better

Functionality: As mentioned earlier, we have other products which give us the 'Smart' element this TV lacks. It is one HDMI port short for me (it has 2). I will need to buy a HDMI switch which are less than £10 on Amazon at the time of writing.

I wanted a straightforward TV without all the 3D, Internet, smart stuff. I just wanted a quality picture & this Sony product delivers it at a price that's way below it's level of quality in my opinion. The sound is also surprisingly good for a flat screen. You won't be disappointed with this product, thoroughly recommended.
