Energy Guide The KDL-42EX440 42" LED HDTV from Sony is the perfect blend of design, price and performance wrapped into a TV. Watch movies the way they were intended. Sony's 24p True Cinema technology allows the TV to maintain a movie's original 24 frames per second (fps) rate so it looks less like television and more like it would in the movie theater. It also makes placing the TV a cinch since it can display vivid images from anywhere in the room.

With full HD 1080p resolution, the KDL-42EX440 takes advantage of the all-out HD glory of broadcast TV, satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray disc player or PlayStation3 entertainment system. Motionflow 120Hz technology ensures that superior fast-moving images are delivered in detailed color and are adjusted so nothing goes by in a blur.

Share your home videos or photos on the big screen or listen to your favorite music with a USB input. Simply connect your digital camera, USB-enabled MP3 player, or USB storage device, and your media can be uploaded in minutes.

The HDTV comes with some energy saving features to help keep things green. The KDL-42EX440 comes with a full complement of inputs, ensuring that you'll be able to hook up any equipment you have or may get in the future.

Full HD 1080p
Nothing expresses crystal-clear detail like full HD 1080p picture quality. It's the highest in-home resolution available and takes advantage of the all-out HD glory of broadcast TV, satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray disc player or PlayStation3 entertainment system
Clearly Different
Fine details and textures appear in whatever you're watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony's advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won't find on most televisions
So Bright and So Thin
Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a radically brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve an ultra-slim TV design that looks beautiful in your home. What's more, Sony's edge LED backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail
Picture Settings Made Easy
Now adjusting the picture is as easy as changing the channel. Just make a quick choice among eight pre-configured audio and video settings for a customized fit to what you're watching. Scene Select options include sports, photo, game, cinema and music
Silky Smooth
Recreate the movement of real life. Sprinters accelerate clearly with less blur, so watching from home feels like you're watching from the stands. By minimizing judder, Motionflow XR 120 technology helps fast-paced action look natural for a more authentic view of the game
Against The Grain
Dazzle the whole family with ultra-crisp HD clarity and less grain. Digital noise reduction enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from USB and other PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid
Theater-Like Movie Viewing
Watch movies the way they were meant to be seen. Sony's 24p True Cinema technology allows the TV to maintain a movie's original 24 frames per second (fps) rate so it looks less like television and more like it would in the movie theater
