Sony Bravia KDL-46XBR4 LCD HDTV
The Basics: Sony’s XBR4 and XBR5 lines represent the company’s top-of-the-line 2007 LCDs; the two lines are distinguished by aesthetic differences but offer similar features and performance. The KDL-46XBR has the same floating-bezel design as 2006’s XBR2/3 Series, with a clear acrylic border and a matte-black frame that houses the two speakers. For $300, you can customize the XBR4 with a different-colored bezel; options are silver, velvet black, scarlet red, Arctic white, sienna brown and Pacific blue. The KDL-46XBR4’s marquee feature is its Motionflow 120-hertz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120 Hz to minimize the appearance of judder and render smoother motion. Other worthwhile features include the use of a 10-bit processor and 10-bit display, the inclusion of three HDMI 1.3 inputs (including one on the side panel), TheaterSync for more intuitive control of HDMI-connected components and ...

Sharp Aquos LC-46D92U LCD HDTV
The Basics: The D92U Series is one of Sharp’s highest-end LCD lines, and its marquee feature is the use of 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz in order to reduce the appearance of judder and render smoother motion. The LC-46D92U is a 46-inch, 1080p model with a traditional CCFL backlight, gloss-black frame and slim, detachable speaker bar.

Samsung LN-T4671F LCD HDTV
The Basics: The 71 Series is Samsung’s top-of-the-line offering in the traditional LCD space. By traditional, we mean that the TV uses a CCFL backlight (the higher-end 81 Series uses LED backlighting). This 46-inch, 1080p model features Samsung’s Auto Motion Plus 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120 Hz to render smoother motion and reduce the appearance of judder in film sources. Samsung’s implementation includes low, medium, high and off settings. Other features in the 71 Series include: the use of Samsung’s Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) processing and Super Clear LCD panel, the inclusion of three HDMI 1.3 inputs (including one on the side panel), Wiselink, which lets you display JPEGs and play MP3s via the USB 2.0 port on the side panel, a game mode and slot-style speakers, with SRS TruSurround XT audio processing.

Toshiba 46RF350U LCD HDTV
The Basics: The 46RF350U is one of the first LCDs to sport Toshiba’s Super Narrow Bezel design. As the name suggests, this design minimizes the amount of visible frame surrounding the 46-inch screen. Less than an inch of high-gloss-black frame is visible around the screen’s edges, and a thin SoundStrip 2 speaker bar runs discreetly along the bottom panel. The TV uses Toshiba’s PixelPure 3G 14-bit processing and CineSpeed 10-bit LCD panel, and it has several advanced picture controls: an adjustable backlight, direct color-temperature adjustment to the TV’s blue/green drive and a ColorMaster system that allows for precise tweaking of the primary and secondary color points. The 46RF350U has three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24, and it offers automatic aspect ratio detection and numerous aspect ratio options, including a Native mode to display 1080i/1080p images with no overscan. The Upside: Reports on ...

Sony Bravia KDL-40W3000 LCD HDTV
The Basics: In terms of price, the W Series falls in the middle of Sony’s LCD lineup, yet it offers many of the same technologies and features found in the company’s higher-end XBR4 and XBR5 lines. Like its higher-end brethren, this 40-inch 1080p model includes a 10-bit processor and 10-bit display to improve color transitions and lessen the appearance of digital noise, and it offers both standard and wide color-space modes, allowing you to choose between colors that are more saturated and ones that are more accurate. This TV also has an adjustable backlight and light sensor to tailor its brightness and black levels based on your viewing environment. It uses Sony’s popular XrossMediaBar and offers both side-by-side and picture-in-picture viewing options. The most notable difference between the W Series and the higher-end lines is the lack of Motionflow 120Hz technology. The ...
