Sony Bravia KDL-46BX450 LCD HDTV Review
A basic 1080p, CCFL back-lit TV that leans toward the bottom of the spectrum.
You can expect a company as big as Sony to cover all areas of the TV market. The KDL-46BX450 (MSRP $699) is one of Sony’s lower-end models: its design is uninspired, it uses an older form of backlighting (CCFL), and it doesn’t include any smart features.
Many consumers wouldn’t have a problem with any of this as long as the TV performs well. Sadly, we can’t say that the Sony Bravia KDL-46BX450 is one of the better performers we’ve seen. The color consistency is off, the viewing angle is poor, and the motion performance is not great. The audio wasn't too bad on this TV and the menu interface was easy to use, but the real question is if those two features warrant your hard-earned $699.
