40 in.

The KDL-40Z5100 presents a good array of features on paper, and we're intrigued by the 240Hz refresh rate.

Controls, Menu & Remote

Remote

The remote for the KDL-40Z5100 on the show floor was not available.

Controls

The KDL-40Z5100's controls on the right side provide the following functions: power on/off, channel up/down, volume up/down, input selection, and home (menu). They are easy to reach when standing in front of the unit, and though there's not much to differentiate them by feel aside from their location (the channel and volume adjustment buttons feel exactly the same), it should be no problem operating them once you have the lay-out down.
