KDL40R450A - Sony 40" Black 1080P LED HDTV

Introduce your home to the true beauty of Sony HD. Full HD 1080p image detail and bright LED backlighting are just the foundation for a great picture.

Smartphone ready - video, photos and apps on the phone are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen while charging.


  • Full HD 1080p
    Nothing expresses crystal-clear detail like Full HD 1080p picture quality. Take 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
  • Bright and slim
    Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve a slimmer TV design that looks beautiful in your home. What's more, Sony's Direct LED Backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail
  • Silky smooth
    Recreate the movement of real life. Sprinters accelerate clearly with less blur, so watching from home feels like you're watching from the stands. By minimizing judder, Motionflow™ XR 120 technology helps fast-paced action look natural for a more authentic view of the game
  • Your smartphone, now on TV
    Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With the smartphone ready R450A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally “mirror” what’s seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it’s charging from the TV
  • 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. Even choose between slideshow, clock and calendar viewing modes
  • 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
  • Photos on the big screen
    Turn your TV into a super-size digital photo frame. Connect a digital camera, USB thumb drive or cloud photo services. Then enjoy your photo collection with a choice of attractive slideshow, clock and calendar display modes
  • 3 HD inputs
    Plug into the action with versatile HD connection options. Three HD inputs include two HDMI® inputs for sources like your HD cable box, home theater system, Blu-ray Disc™ player or PS3™ system, and one HD component input

The picture quality is great, and the sound is amazing! Changing channels is quick. The feature to save your favorite channels saves time from having to flip channels until you find what you are looking for. We have Plasma, LED and LCD TVs and this one is our favorite! If you loose your remote, the controls on the side are easy to use. Our previous models had small buttons that you had to shine a light on in order to figure out which one was which. Sony made them larger and with different shapes for you to manipulate the channels with ease. The settings are very simple and easy to get to. Cons: Channel and Volume buttons on the remote are located near the bottom making it uncomfortable to manipulate. Picture in Picture doesn't work with everyone due to the need to hook up your computer, not all computers are compatible. We really wanted a 50", but settled on this 40" because of the quality and price.

Picture Quality is so so. Go for a 120

Should go with 120Hz. Picture is not as crisp and clear as I had hoped.

Great display, bad sound


from Mazar-e Sharif, Afghanistan

I just got one for my bedroom. The display and graphic quality is just fantastic, but the quality of the speakers is too low for a Sony product. I think I need an extra sound system to get the quality I want. I would appreciate to receive a feedback from Sony if they normally do that.


Great "Basic" TV for the money


from NY

I already own a SONY internet TV so without saying this model does not provide all of the same features. I was looking for a basic model for a bedroom and this TV has more than fulfilled that need, I would have given 5 stars if the internet TV features were not dancing in my head in comparison, overall and once again very satisfied with all my SONY products.


Great Television


from Colorado Springs, Colorado

Just like being there!


from St Paul MN

We love this 40" TV! Watched the Kentucky Derby races today & we could almost taste the mint juleps! Good sound, really clear, sharp picture.




from North Brunswick, NJ

Excellent size and picture quality.


Perfect Product Fit


from Albuquerque, NM

This products' price/performance/size specs are perfect for our bedroom application (although we get noticeable picture fade at an angle off straight away). Competitive products have similar tech specs but have to UP their customer service game to catch up with Son'y's premier approach and attitude.

Great picture


from Roy, UT

I primarily purchased this tv because of price and available input/output options. I replaced a 38" of a different brand that only had one HDMI input and no Optical ouput other than rca ports. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised that the picture was much cleaner with better color saturation and sharpness. The HD detail is significantly better than the old set. If I have one nit to pick, it does come with a fixed stand. I would prefer the ability to angle and turn the display rather than having no angular control, and having to turn the entire set and base to turn the display.


Very pleased with this T.V. for our fam.
