Product Details

Sony 46" Black 1080P LCD HDTV - KDL46BX450

Step up to brilliant Full HD 1080p picture quality with BRAVIA® BX420 Series HDTVs. Featuring five HD inputs (2 HDMI™ inputs, 2 component inputs and a PC input), you can easily connect a PlayStation®3 system, Blu-ray Disc™ player and PC. There's also an integrated USB input that lets you view photos and listen to music directly on your TV. Additionally this HDTV features LightSensor™ technology which automatically identifies the brightness of ambient light and adjusts the television brightness precisely.

Key Features:

  • Full HD 1080p picture quality
  • 4 HD inputs
  • USB input
  • Clear Resolution Enhancer for crisp detail and contrast
  • Optimized picture based on what you're watching
  • Digital Noise Reduction

Features:

  • Full HD 1080p Resolution
    Nothing expresses crystal-clear detail like Full HD 1080p picture quality. It's the highest in-home resolution available and takes advantage of the all-out HD glory of broadcast TV, satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray Disc™ player or PlayStation®3 entertainment system.
  • Clearly different
    Fine details and textures appear in whatever you’re watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony’s advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won’t find on most televisions.
  • USB input for your camera and more
    Share your vacation photos instantly on the big screen or listen to your favorite music. Simply connect your compatible digital camera, USB-enabled MP3 player or USB storage device directly to your HDTV's USB input. It's a fast and simple way to relive the memories without a hassle.
  • Four HD inputs
    Plug into the action with versatile HD connection options. Four HD inputs include two HDMI® inputs for sources like your HD cable box, home theater system, Blu-ray Disc™ player or PS3™ system, one HD component input and a PC input (HD-15 pin) which lets you use your HDTV as a computer monitor.
  • Picture settings made easy
    Now adjusting the picture is as easy as changing the channel. Just make a quick choice among eight pre-configured audio and video settings for a customized fit to what you're watching. Scene Select options include Sports, Photo, Game, Cinema and Music.
  • Handheld gaming goes big
    Play your PSP® system or other handheld gaming consoles (with SD output) on your HDTV with no irritating black borders surrounding the picture. Just select Game Mode for an ideal fit to your TV screen according to the input. Better yet, Super Resolution Processing delivers a clear, crisp view in HD size.
  • Against the grain
    Dazzle the whole family with ultra-crisp HD clarity and less grain. Digital Noise Reduction enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from USB and other PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid.
  • Theater-like movie viewing
    Watch movies the way they were meant to be seen. Sony’s 24p True Cinema technology allows the TV to maintain a movie’s original 24 frames per second (fps) rate so it looks less like television and more like it would in the movie theater.
  • One remote for multiple devices
    Conveniently operate and control other BRAVIA®Sync compatible devices – including BRAVIA HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc™ players, surround sound systems, Handycam® camcorders and Cyber-shot® digital still cameras, all with one remote control.

Fantastic T.V The picture is one of the best I have ever seen and I have owned many different 1080p televisions. The 3d effect is really a sight to behold! I went to the Sony store to see this awesome tv in action. With some doubt in my mind and armed with a bit of knowledge I ventured into the store! The people were helpful and knowledgeable! I had looked at both the Samsung and Panasonic and I had seem both of those tvs with the 3d action The samsung seemed to Ghost really bad and the Panasonic was crisp and the colors were the best I had ever seen. Until I decided to check out Sony. This Tv coupled with my PS3 and some nice surround sound Literally made me feel I was part of the action. A+ Product and now all my friends make weekly visits to check out the awesome 3d Tv.

The TV is very easy to setup but the add on features not so. The picture quality is very good with the HD channel from the satellite receiver. I use a 1GB LAN for the internet connection to the TV, as a result, the network setup is simple.The internet video feature is good if you have a high speed connection. I have a 8MbDL and 0.8MbUL link so the video is smooth. I wish they would have GB LAN port on TV rather than a 10/100MB standard port. Netflix feature is not available yet. Quriocity service was troublesome to activate it, a piece of advise, DO NOT USE the TV build-in Browser to register the service. There is no Widget feature on TV. The TV build in browser is BASIC. I cannot even view sonystyle.ca web page correctly with it. The browser is lack of plug-ins, ie no adobe Flash players, no microsoft silverlight plug-ins, no multi-lingual support, no media player plug-in. These are the short-falls i found so far. I just give up to use it. Forget about twitter, facebook, flickr, news sites or internet radio site. With respect to the Home network, DLNA features, hmmm, almost most of the music files are mp3, so it works ok. For picture display, I simply do not understand why it cannot display all jepg files. The big SHORT-FALL is the video play back, it only support mepg, ie file extension ,mpg. 99% of downloaded video files are avi, unless you have a media conversion software, then i would suggest you to forget using the TV to view you Home Network video clip. i have some 800+ video clip, less than 1% is mpg format. I use a WD TV Live on my other HDTV and I can view and play everything on my Network Drive with 1TB of media contents. The USB port works with Flash Disk, Sony DC, portable Drive. For wireless Network connection, you can only use SONY USB Wireless Key, with other makers, it will not work as I tested. Same for the Webcam. The skybe features cannot be tested as I still waiting for the SONY WEBCAM. I believe the Skybe feature will only be enable if you plug in a SONY webcam, as I do not see this feature under the menu selection.
I wish SONY would have enable the USB keyboard/Mouse function,using the TV remote to enter the URL, username or password requires great patience.
Overall, it is still a good TV for viewing TV or movie, the picture quality is very good, the design looks nice. Forget about the HOME network and internet feature. You are better off to connect a NETbook to the TV for browser function. Also it is better to get a stand alone media player, ie WD TV live, to view your home network media content.

You get what you pay for

By 

from The mountains

Comments about Sony 46" BX450 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

Had this set now six months. Picture is unstable on all settings. (comcast) cable. Three other HD tv's in the house One sony,jvc and emerson. 42",42" and 32" respectively. The other sony (Wega) is over eight years old and has a far better picture. The other two were bought after Christmas and are lower line models that have great pictures. When watching this set on non HD channels it's like watching an old antenna set unless you are twenty feet away. Inside 10' and your eye's start to hurt after a half hour of viewing. I'm not a fan of the Bravia. I've owned Sony tv's exclusively for over 20 years. The Trinitron was the best ever. Unless you spend over a grand on a Sony,my experience is you can get a better picture elsewhere. I am probably more picky than most people.

    Comments about Sony 46" BX450 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    Great picture and features for the money. Very disappointed in the sound. I have routed the sound through my stereo system until I find the right sound bar/theater system to purchase. The sound is so treble and tinny that if it weren't for the great picture, the set would have gone back to the store.

    Great TV for the Price

    By 

    from Sandiego CA

    Comments about Sony 46" BX450 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    I have had this Television for 6 months already, the bluray movies look impecable, and even Dvd movies look awesome, The only thing about it is that the menu takes time to load it makes me feel like im with a slow computer, and I think it should have more options on picture display, the only good one is Vivid, all the other ones suck, but the problem with Vivid is that when you are watching a movie or playing a game that has a lot of red in it, for some reason it looks horrible... too much red color in the movie afects this setting and makes it look very very bad. Im thinking of buying the XBR-55HX949 instead.

    Comments about Sony 46" BX450 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    The HD picture on this TV is stunning. The Superbowl was like watching little 3D people coming out of the TV. And set it to Vivid. The best setting. I have a Sony Blu-Ray player and Sony AV and they work perfectly and the Blu-Ray will switch the picture automatically. I love this TV! Best I have ever had. My brother has a Samsung which is almost exactly the same, but Sony is a touch better.

    My first LED TV...and i trust...

    By 

    from Sunnyvale, CA

    Comments about Sony 46" BX450 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    I was told Samsung...has.great LED picture, but when i compared both the TV @ BestBuy for 10 days..i felt the picture in SONY is more real and clear than Bright sun like LED of samsung. If you have kids at home and who watch TV frequently i would suggest for SONY real picture than burning eyes with bright LED's at home. The colors are vibrant and crisp with 120Hz...since my 3D TV has 240Hz it is much more clear compare to any 120Hz LED screens. Take your time, buy what makes you more happy and comfortable... reviews are my personal thoughts...not an expert opinions. Hey finally, its worth waiting for good deals..check out online & Sony outlets.. Good luck to you..for new TV venture. Cheers, Babu

    Should have went with Samsung from the start

    By 

    from Richmond, KY

    Comments about Sony 46" BX450 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    I am very up on the lastest technology and when looking to buy, I do extensive research. This television was the best for the price. Did not come with Yahoo widgets, but an update soon brought them to this model. Picture is brilliant, especially bluray in 240 Hz smooth motion. Looks like your there. Has all the internet content you would want or need. Only problem is Yahoo widgets. After an update installed about 2 months after Yahoo widget update, started having problems with widgets loading and reseting themselves to original widget configuration. Sony had no answer to the problem. Tried to say that my internet speed was too slow. I admit it's slower than they recommend, but it was not the problem. It is a software glitch that Sony has not figured out with the wireless connection. Ethernet connection works fine, but most people want a wireless connection for convenience. Very disappointed with Sony customer support on this issue. They are helpful with general questions, but when you have a large problem they are not knowlegeable and always point to customer error. Sony finally offered me my money back and I took it and bought a plasma from another manufacturer. Paid a bit more, but hopefully it will be worth it. I have always been a loyal Sony customer, but that has changed. They haven't even apologized to me about the whole ordeal. Spent many days and several hours on the phone with Sony. I have better things to do with my time. Hopefully Sony will get the Yahoo widget problem figured out. I'm sure they will with time. This television will be competely worth the price when that happens. Until then, I would buy something else.

    I bought this TV back in April and to this day it still amazes me with it's picture quality. Blu-ray and HD movies and channels will blow your mind. It also functions perfectly with my PS3 and 360. Colors are astonishing. I recommend this product and it exceeded all of my expectations.

    Excellent TV

    By 

    from Scotch Plains, NJ

    Comments about Sony 46" BX450 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    I'm a TV enthusiast and normally only purchase Sony XBR. Let's face it times are tight so I decided to try something a little less expensive this time. I'm very glad that I did! The only complaint/comment I have is that if a TV has internet and 3D capability it should come out of the box ready to go. I as a consumer should not have to go out and purchase an adapter for internet and glasses for 3D. Don't nickle and dime us Sony, you're better than that... This is going to be closed out; if you can find it for under $900 or better; buy it! If not wait for after January 1. That's when all the TV's are blown out to make room for the new models. Enjoy it. It is an excellent TV overall for an intermediate Sony...
