The Sony 40" R450A Series LED HDTV is a Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Direct LED backlight technology, which enhances contrast and reproduces images with sharp clarity. Live Color technology is also employed to emphasize vividness of color. Plus, with the Motionflow XR 120, fast-paced action movies and sports are blur-free and more natural looking. Other video features include an Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE), Digital Noise Reduction and 24P True Cinema.

The TV's audio features are equally impressive. With support for Dolby Digital and Simulated Surround, your audio will be as high-quality as the HD video. Plus, you can even output audio via digital coaxial connection to your AV receiver for true surround sound from your home theater speakers. The TV's connectivity options include HDMI, component, USB 2.0 and more.

This model also features BRAVIA Sync, which permits all compatible devices to communicate with each other and activate with a single macro-type command from the included remote control. The TV supports MHL as well, which allows you to connect your smartphone to the TV with a single cable. Once connected, you can mirror your smartphone media on the TV's big 1920 x 1080 screen. It will also allow you to browse the web and charge your smartphone.

Full HD 1080p Resolution
With Full HD 1080p resolution, you can take advantage of HD TV broadcasting, HD satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray Disc player or PlayStation3 entertainment system.
Digital Noise Reduction
Powered by Sony's advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth.
Motionflow XR 120
By minimizing judder, Motionflow XR 120 technology helps fast-paced action look natural for a more authentic view of sports and other high-speed action.
USB Media Player
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 easy way to share your photos, videos and music files. Even choose between slideshow, clock and calendar viewing modes.
HDMI & Component Connectivity
This Sony TV is equipped with three HD inputs including two HDMI inputs and one HD component input for sources like your HD cable box, home theater system, Blu-ray Disc player or PlayStation3 system.
Mobile High Definition Link (MHL)
Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can be viewed on your TV. Using a Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) cable, you can connect your compatible smartphone to the TV to view what's seen on the smartphone screen on the big 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. Plus, the MHL connection will charge your smartphone as well.
Digital Photo Frame
Turn your TV into a super-size digital photo frame. Connect a digital camera, USB thumb drive or use cloud photo services. You can enjoy your photo collection with a choice of attractive slideshow, clock and calendar display modes. You can also add FM tunes to your photo slideshow.
Sony's Direct LED Backlight Technology
Sony's Direct LED Backlight technology delivers a brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. The powerful and slim LEDs also help achieve a thinner TV design. LEDs provide better contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail.

        Comments about Sony 40" R450A Series LED HDTV:

        We needed something for our cozy family room and this fit the space perfectly. It replaced our 27" 7 year old primordial flatscreen and the picture quality is wonderful, very crisp for its price point. Blacks are true on screen, with a lot of options to tweak the picture quality to your liking. It's lightweight, set up in a flash. Stand was super easy to assemble and feels sturdy. Has 2 HDMI slots, which was all we required - we watch most of our tv thru our laptops. No problems encountered yet.

                I Bought this Sony 40" HDTV for the bedroom, I was amazed at how light it was just 26 pounds, easy to setup, great picture, and low energy consumption. It fits perfectly on the entertainment center too. I'm so glad I didn't purchase the 32" as originally planned, I do own a lot of Sony products and will continue to purchase their line of products.

                  I bought this TV to replace an older Sony LCD that my son took to college. I never had an LED before and I was pleasantly surprise at the picture quality and ease in setting it up. It weights about 21 lbs, thus easy to mount on the wall. So far, it's given hours of good viewing and I highly recommend it.

                    Amazing TV. Bought for the bedroom to be mounted on the arm. Weights only 30 pounds almost disproportionately light for its size. This TV has the blackest color I have seen on LED. It is not Edge lit TV but rather Direct LED backlighting producing very true black color reproduction. As already been mentioned it is a TV not a smart one but it is great at being a TV.

                      Lots of features and great picture quality for such a thin unit. The USB connection adds ability to view photos on a flash drive, or even better, add a hard drive with music and movies to create an all-in-one entertainment center. The interface is not as graceful as Itunes, but fairly easy to use and even displays all track info (artist/album/year) for music imported into Itunes.
