Sony Bravia KDL-46HX729 LED LCD 3D HDTV Review
The Sony Bravia KDL-46HX729 is not recommended for avid 3D fans.
The Sony Bravia KDL-46HX729 is easy to calibrate, as the Cinema preference mode hits it awfully close to the mark. We only had to make a few tweaks to optimize the picture quality. See the chart below for details.
All of our calibration is done in conjunction with the DisplayMate software.
The Sony Bravia KDL-46HX729 has a number of video modes, but like so much of the interface, the choices are spread out across multiple menus to create maximum confusion (that's the only logical conclusion, based on how effective Sony has gotten at confusion). In the Picture mode submenu, you'll find the options for Vivid, Standard, and Custom. In the Preferences submenu, you'll find the rest of the choices, all listed below.
