Our take on the Sony KDL-40V4150

by Steve Kindig
Sony

The 40" Sony KDL-40V4150 offers full 1080p screen resolution, plus so much more. Compared to Sony's previous "V-series" TVs, this one provides more inputs for connecting the latest HD gear and better picture quality with non-HD programs. The '40V4150 is virtually identical to Sony's KDL-40V4100, but the '40V4150 extends the warranty period to 18 months.

BRAVIA video processing improves low-quality signals
High-definition video sources look stunning on the KDL-40V4150, but most people still watch at least some non-HD material. That's why it's important to choose a TV with excellent video processing. Sony's latest BRAVIA Engine 2™ circuitry cleans up lower-res signals by analyzing and processing each scene to enhance picture contrast, reduce noise, and optimize color.

Another quality that often separates top-notch TVs from no-name models is picture contrast. Sony's Advanced Contrast Enhancer continuously monitors the video signal and adjusts the TV's backlight levels to improve contrast without masking details in darker areas of the picture.

So many viewing options
The KDL-40V4150 has built-in tuners for your local digital and analog over-the-air broadcasts (antenna required). Plus, a "QAM" cable TV tuner lets cable subscribers watch unscrambled channels without a set-top box — including HD channels in many areas.

The versatile set of audio/video connections includes six HD-capable inputs: four HDMI and two component video. And a proprietary rear-panel port lets you expand this TV's capabilities by adding one of Sony's optional BRAVIA Link add-on modules.

Video Features

NTSC/ATSC/QAM Tuners: The TV is equipped with an analog NTSC tuner, a digital ATSC/8VSB tuner, and a digital QAM tuner for receiving unscrambled digital cable channels. It is not CableCARD compatible. You do not need to connect an external HDTV set-top box in order to receive High-Definition programming.

Native Resolution: The KDL-40V4150 has a full HD native resolution of 1920 x 1080 with over 2 million pixels (more than twice the pixels of 720p HDTV). The TV's four HDMI inputs can accept 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p and 1080/24p signals, and the two component video inputs can accept 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p signals. All video signals from standard definition and high definition are upconverted to 1080p.

4 HDMI Inputs: The KDL-40V4150 features four HDMI inputs (3 Rear/1 Side). The HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) terminals provide an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. One HDMI input also has left and right RCA audio jacks. With an HDMI-to-DVI cable, you can connect the TV to a DVI-equipped A/V component. When connecting to a DVI-equipped component, the RCA audio inputs are used and separate RCA audio cable must be connected.

Note: The HDMI input will accept 1080/24p, 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.

24pTrue Cinema (24p Input Capability): Many movies are filmed at 24 frames per second (fps) and prime time TV programs are video taped at 24p. Seizing on an opportunity, some studios are taking a purist approach and encoding high definition video content such as Blu-ray Disc in 24p. Sony wisely takes advantage of this by including 24p input capability via HDMI on this television producing images that are smooth and natural looking.

Component Video Inputs: The two component video inputs will accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.

Bravia Engine Technology: The latest version of Sony's respected Bravia Engine fully digital video processor uses a collection of unique Sony algorithms to significantly reduce noise and produce sharp, vibrant, life-like images. Bravia Engine technology optimizes the color, contrast, detail and clarity of every scene for the exceptional performance. The television offers the following Bravia Engine features.

  • Dynamic Noise Reduction: Intelligently identifies and dramatically reduces noise in the signal according to the motion and brightness of each scene for clearer, crisper images.
  • Detail Enhancement: Improved image enhancement algorithms render greater overall detail.
  • Contrast Enhancement: Works with the Advanced Contrast Enhancer circuit to optimize the contrast for every scene to create better depth and reality.

Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE): Part of the cinematic drama in film-making comes from details found in shadows and dark areas of the picture. Sony's Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) uses real-time image processing to dynamically adjust backlight levels for improved contrast without masking details the filmmaker intended you to see. ACE delivers deep blacks in darker scenes, as well as fine details in shadows and other dark areas of the picture for a difference you can truly see. Sony's Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) builds on the TV's excellent on-contrast ratio performance of 2,500:1. A Dynamic Contrast Ratio of up to 25,000:1 is achieved by using real-time image processing to adjust the contrast along with optimizing backlight levels.

So far so good

Written By Larry, Boca Raton, FL on Thursday, May 07, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is our first LCD TV, and it is just great. Set up was easy, and after Comcast installed the HD DVR, we're in the 21st century. The picture is ok on the non-HD channels, but the HD channels are fantastic. We have a relatively inexpensive DVD player with upconvert capability, and it's a great picture too. I can't imagine what difference a BluRay player will make, but when that whole scheme becomes reasonable, I'll get one of those. For myself, the sound isn't that great from the speakers, but I have a surround sound system anyway. As for setup, I made no picture adjustments other than experimenting with the "wide" selections. I leave it in Normal almost all the time.

I've ordered several items from Crutchfield over the last 20 years, and have always been satisfied with the experience. This time was no exception.

This is my first HD TV and I could not be more pleased. The picture is perfect. Of course Crutchfield advisors were as helpful as ever and the shipment arrived quicker than expected. I compared this TV to a friend's Samsung and both are great products but I liked the Sony a little better.

Sony KDL-40V4150

Written By Lars, Newport Beach, CA on Thursday, January 29, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nice looking TV and easy to setup. This is our first LCD TV and we use it for a second TV in our home office and for our son's video gaming. The picture is OK (we haven't gotten blue-ray yet), but the picture colors are not nearly as good as those on our two years older 50 inch Pioneer 1080i plasma TV.

This was our first purchase from Crutchfield. We liked the experience and will come back next time we need anything of what they sell.

Don't get nervous...

Written By Michael, Albany, NY on Friday, October 24, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This set came; I set it up, and was dissappointed. I shut it down and went to bed. The next day, I played with some of the image settings...the same procedure the next day. The conclusion to this story is...the only issue I've had to this point is that the factory image presets are simply awful. Once you take some time to customize your image, it's a tremendous deal for the money. I know the 120khz refresh rate almost eliminates motion blur for another $300....but to be honest, the processing on this set is so good, you won't be dissappointed or feel like you shouldve spent the extra money. I have a Bravia 32" 720p where motion blur is a real issue...this set does a much better job.

Exceptional Sony Flat panel

Written By Barry, Austin, Texas on Tuesday, August 19, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Everything worked as expected. I really liked the fact that the power cord disconnected because in my case since I could not install an electrical outlet directly behind the TV, I simply routed the detachable power cord into the wall behind the set and then out at the bottom and then plugged it into the Monster Surge Protector, the cord was plenty long enough to do this. This allows me to remove the TV from the wall if needed without having to pull the power cord out of the wall.

Do yourself a favor and search the net for helpful guides for tweaking the settings to get the picture just right, it helped me quite a bit.

The picture is absolutely awesome!

This model represents good performance, good size, good price, all around value and is attractive with the 18 mo. warranty added. My home theatre setup plugged right in. All that remains to be determined is the reliability, (life expectancy also). At least Sony is rated as high as most for warranty backup!

The Sony KDL-V4150 is an excellent LCD set. Its picture quality compares favorably with my Sony 60in XBR2 and 37in Panasonic Plasma sets both of which have very high quality pictures. For a 40in flat screen, I highly recommend the v4150 which also comes with an 18month factory warranty.
