Introduction

The KDL-40W5100 is a 40-inch LCD from Sony. The TV has a 120Hz mode, but it didn't impress us with its affect on blur. The better feature on the TV is its internet connectivity. Sony has managed to land more content providers than any other manufacturer we've reviewed.

The TV backs up these features with some good picture quality overall, though it was prone to artifacting and its color gamut wandered outside industry standards.

The KDL-40W5100 currently retails for about $1500.
