Sony Bravia KDL-46BX420 LCD HDTV Review

46 in.

A decent budget buy that crams more performance in its 46-inch screen than many higher-priced models.

Connectivity

Entry-level televisions typically won't inundate you with a vast plethora of connectivity options, and the Sony KDL-46BX420 is absolutely no different. On the back of the TV set, there are relatively few ports.

On the side of the Sony KDL-46BX420, there is a small input panel with one composite video input and one USB input port.

To its credit, though, it does retain some analog options that are increasingly often eschewed by newer TVs in favor of internet content and increased external media options. Still, its ports are fairly basic and few in number.

Placement

This score is hurt because the base does not swivel, but overall the placement of ports is difficult to mess up. Even though the rear ports are a bit difficult to reach in the back without physically moving the set, the side-facing input panel is a nice touch, and there aren't any oddly-oriented ports facing downward.
