      The Sony Bravia LCD TV KDL-46XBR9 is an amazing television, starting with its looks. It is incredibly thin, and sits flush against the wall or on its own stand. It has an unbelievably thin frame surrounding the screen which means you get the 46 inch screen and virtually no extra wall space taken up. It looks beautiful before you even turn it on.

      Powering up is fast. For those with a cable control or universal control for a number of different appliances, a useful feature is the Sony logo that is lit when the television is on. This reduces the risk of mistakenly switching off the cable box leaving the television


      on instead.

      The picture quality out of the box is great, whether you have an HD signal or not, and so far there has been no need to have anyone in to calibrate the screen. The set up instructions are very easy to follow, and anyone should be able to be up and running in less than 5 minutes without external help. The HD quality is out of this world, the colors pop out and the picture is knife edge sharp.

      I think it is advisable to connect the television to the internet and do a software update soon after installation. This does not take long, and again the instructions are foolproof, and set ...


      • out for you on the screen to guide you through.

        Connecting other components, such as cable box, DVD player, games console is very easy due to the four HDMI slots and other connection ports for pretty much any type of plug. All of these are located both on the back of the television and on the side for easy access, and recognition of each component is almost instantaneous.

        Once updated, the internet connectivity is easy to navigate. The content is slightly disappointing, however. Having Netflix and Amazon on Demand is a definite advantage, and both easy to use and quick to respond. However, there are pages of other video options that offer little

        more than short clips, trailers and snippets. The Home page is a nice feature whereby you can easily navigate between different things – connected devices, internet functionality, widgets, settings etc.

        The widgets, such as financial information and weather for different locations are very useful and unobtrusive when activated. However, the instructions for how to use them and change them are poorly written and do not cover everything. A search on the internet was necessary to work out how to use them to their best advantage.

        Overall, this television is fantastic, and incredibly good value. It is like a work of art on the wall with the functionality of becoming an entertainment center as well.
