Introduction

The Sony KDL-46BX420 ($899 MSRP) is a decent budget buy that crams more picture performance in its 46-inch LCD screen than many others do in higher-priced models. You will sacrifice a bit in the way of connectivity options, but overall this TV is not a bad entry-level buy, as it will give you more bang for your buck in terms of raw performance than some of its competitors at this price.
