The Sony KDL-46S2000 is 46” (measured diagonally) widescreen TV using LCD technology and is from Sony’s Bravia S series. The native resolution of the set is 1366 X 768 (WXGA) with a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 which is useful while viewing widescreen videos or movies. The set is equipped with a silver cabinet with the buttons fitted at the top and can cause some distress for anyone who wants to mount the television on the wall.
The colors of the set are extremely rich and vivid and sometimes overly bright, especially in the Vivid Picture Mode. The color reproduction is quite accurate in the Standard Picture Mode with a few adjustments. Overall the viewing angles are satisfying. The picture is quite good for a horizontal viewing angle of 160 degrees, which is much less than the 178 degrees advertised by Sony, and vertical viewing angle of 15 degrees.
The black levels of the set really left me disappointed because most of the details were lost as the dark parts were displayed far too brightly. Lowering the power of the LCD backlight bulb helps to decrease the problem to a certain extent. The contrast ratios of the Sony KDL-46S2000 could be measured somewhere at 700:1 which is quite good but cannot be compared to the plasma TV’s which have much better black levels. The speakers are good enough for a moderate sized viewing area and have surround sound capabilities.
