Onboard Manual
You will never lose your TV manual again. The iManual is available through the menu system on the TV - always there if you need it
Find it Fast
Searching for shows and music on your TV is so simple. Just press 'GUIDE' on your remote and see what's on and what's coming up with a handy image to go with it. You also get an episode synopsis, cast and crew details and suggestions to related shows, on-demand movies and Blu-ray disc titles
Finding music is also a cinch. Music search with the TrackID button cleverly recognizes the melody of the music playing on your TV. Want to go further? Search to find more songs by the same artist and other related Web content. Share your discovery with the world via Twitter
A Sense for Songs
What's that song in the TV show, movie or commercial you're watching? Press 'TrackID' on your remote and get the song name and artist instantly. You can also start the TrackID service by shaking a smartphone that's running the Media Remote app
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
Save Power, Save Money
Enjoy lower energy bills with reduced power consumption of up to 30% while maintaining beautiful image quality with eco drive technology. It automatically reduces power consumption while boosting color and detail on the screen and conserving energy used by the backlight
Wi-Fi without a Router
Sometimes your friends want to share their personal photos and videos on your beautiful HDTV. With Sony's Wi-Fi direct mode, your friends can throw personal content to your TV without connecting to your home network. Wi-Fi direct completely bypasses the Wi-Fi access point / router, so it's easy to set up
Life-Sized Video Calls
It's like they're in the room with you. Skype video calls bring your family and friends closer than ever as they appear as large as life on your big screen-for free. Just connect the easy-to-use Skype camera (sold separately) for a face-to-face look at the caller on the beauty of your Sony HDTV
Control Your TV with Your Phone
Now there's one less remote control on the coffee table. Just download the free Media Remote app and turn your iPhone, Android phone or Sony Tablet S into a versatile remote control with a full QWERTY keyboard. It makes changing channels and typing searches ultra fast and convenient
All Devices, Together as One
Don't all of your personal photos and videos deserve the big screen? Experience your content on a grand scale simply by connecting your compatible smartphone, computer or Sony Tablet S via your existing Wi-Fi network. Then you can easily throw your videos, photos and music files to your HDTV
Goodbye Wires, Hello Built-In Wi-Fi
Maximize your entertainment while reducing cable clutter. Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi connectivity
In-Your-Face Action
Brace yourself for pure 3D excitement that feels like you're standing on the 50-yard line. Through advanced active 3D technology, immerse yourself in full HD 1080p clarity and phenomenal 3D picture quality. Just slide on the comfortable 3D active glasses and enter a whole new dimension
The Difference is Dynamic
It's all about perfecting a natural look. Dynamic edge LED backlighting with local dimming delivers pitch-black night scenes and illuminates bright scenes that pop with vibrant color. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right areas for a more realistic picture
Natural 3D Effects
Feel like you're standing alongside your favorite actor as the environment envelops you with lush 3D detail. Ultra-realistic effects are achieved by X-Reality PRO 3D super resolution, optimizing each area of the 3D scene by drawing on its database of patterns, shapes and textures
Go Way Beyond Cable
Welcome to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet you can access full HD 1080p entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and more
Tough, Yet Beautiful
Corning's exclusive Gorilla Glass lets you enjoy an incredibly durable, remarkably lightweight, frameless design with a seamless, sophisticated look. Paired with the OptiContrast panel, Gorilla Glass helps boost contrast and brightness while minimizing unwanted light reflections
Clearest Picture Ever
When you watch a kickoff at the stadium, the ball doesn't blur from left to right. Recreating natural motion with reduced judder and less blur, Motionflow XR 960 technology helps you see each end-over-end rotation by taking motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to quadruple the motion effect so you see everything as if you were there
Everything Looks Better
This is picture quality so lifelike it's like looking through a window. Each scene in everything you watch-HD movies, sports, even YouTube clips and home movies-is presented with unprecedented detail, and astonishing color as Sony's exclusive X-Reality PRO picture engine draws on its database of real patterns, shapes and textures to display our most lifelike picture ever

        Great mid size screen (46"), fabulous resolution, & quick response with 240 Hz refresh and 940 motionflo. Complements my Sony sound system with terrific 3D surround. 3D picture is awesome. Very easy setup out of box & slim profile made it quite easy for individual alignment on swingout wall mount. WiFi connection allows multi media access for video, music & photo downloads. Again, very easy Internet settings setup, including Skype access with optional Sony camera & microphone unit. Bluetooth allows portable keyboard connection for easier internet surfing.

        Have not experienced any problem with how I intended to use this TV.

        Sony LED arrived damaged. B & H sent ups back to pick it up and the next day replaced it with a brand, new perfect one!
        That's why I always shop at B & H. They know their stuff, prices are the best and they have loads of integrity.
