Another plus on the Sony is the Motionflow 100hz feature, which doubles the refresh rate of the picture compared to older CRT models and advances the 60Hz produced by most other sets.

Also included is several multimedia ports for displaying a number of mediums.

As for picture quality, the KDL40W4500U creates incredibly clear and defined images with a combination of BRAVIA ENGINE 2 picture enhancement technology and Advanced Contrast Enhancer - which all sounds very technical but basically means that Sony have spend a lot of money and time developing in house methods to improve the picture quality given by the already amazing 1920 x 1080 panel. The Bravia function will also let you wirelessly sync other Bravia devices such as Sony Bravia Surround Sound Systems. So with the KDLW4500U, youre not just getting top end picture quality Youre also getting a multimedia hub that allows you to access anything from pictures to music from the comfort of your armchair.
