The Sony Bravia XBR-46HX929 has full LED backlighting, premium video performance and promises future upgrades from its online update capability. A 46-inch class full back-lit LED-LCD 3D HDTV; the XBR-46HX929 can deliver active 3D video and sound from any source at its full 1080p resolution. The Sony XBR-46HX929 combines Sony’s OptiContrast Panel with a strong Corning Gorilla Glass for dynamic contrast, increased brightness, and minimized light reflection to produce better picture quality. With its Intelligent Peak, Full LED Backlight system the XBR-46HX929 displays a sharp, bright picture from anywhere in the room and with any ambient lighting. It is a superior High Definition 3D ready set that will provide years of entertainment value.
This Sony XBR-46HX929 delivers striking 3D renderings of both normal 2D content and made for 3D video sources like Playstation or Blu-ray 3D. Unfortunately Sony does not include 3D glasses with the set so you need to their 3D Active Glasses (TDG-BR250) to view anything in 3D mode. For watching fluid, flicker free scenes of fast action and sports at a virtual 960Hz refresh rate, the 46-inch screen runs Sony’s Motionflow XR 960 blur reduction (240Hz refresh rate combined with full backlight scanning). There are four video settings to choose from depending on your action content – Smooth, Standard, Clear, or Clear Plus. The X-Reality Pro Engine powers the video by intelligently processing every frame delivering full 1080p High Definition for grand picture presentations of online content and digital 2D/3D sources. Sony’s Intelligent Peak LED Backlight system included is capable of using the full LED array for local dimming to deliver deeper blacks and boosting brightness in lighter scenes for on-screen contrast.
How about a television that looks after the viewers in the room or absence of them? Sony’s presence sensor is an innovative tweak to energy savings. This sensor is a build-in camera that monitors the room for motion activity. If there is no motion for a period of time the display is turned off. This motion and proximity sensor also shows “concern” for your viewing safety. If it senses that someone is sitting too close for viewing safety, a large warning sign is displayed on the screen. While that may seem a bit to “Big Brother” this same sensor does provide a real benefit for adapting to lighting conditions. The ambiance sensor adjusts the brightness on the display according to the level of light or darkness in the room. It will also adjust the picture depending on where viewers are sitting in the viewing area.
This Sony Bravia HDTV provides a virtual surround sound experience from three rearward facing 10-watt speakers pumping clear sound out of left and right channels and a central woofer. Programmed with preset sound profiles for either wall or stand mounting, the set is guaranteed to produce optimum surround sound audio. You can customize the treble, bass and balance to your liking with the audio equalizer controls or choose from preset sound modes. There is a Dynamic mode to tweak the treble and bass for clear sounds. Standard mode delivers native sound from the audio source. Clear Voice mode makes voices clearer by reducing the background sounds and music. You can develop your own custom sound profiles with the audio equalizer capability.
The XBR-46HX929 comes with Sony’s video and music internet streaming content as well as social application widgets for Facebook, Twitter, etc. pre-installed and ready for use. This HDTV is capable of running Skype in full but you need to use Sony’s compatible camera/microphone (sold separately). A high speed Internet connection over your home network is required for optimum performance of streaming content.
The XBR-46HX929 is 1 5/8 inches thin if you want to wall mount it. Wall mounting this HDTV presents an awesome accent to the room with its dark monolithic panel design. The panel display itself is seamless, and reinforced with strong Corning Gorilla Glass. Weighing in at 43 pounds without its stand and having a 42 5/8 inch wide cabinet, it is possible to handle and set up the HDTV alone, but we always recommend you have a friend or family member help as an added precaution. The stand will increase your depth to 12 inches, but can swivel both 20 degrees left or right and six degrees up if needed for viewing.
The XBR-46HX929 includes a quick set-up guide with access to the full User’s Manual on the set itself via the remote control. Setup covers channel, video input, audio optimization, and establishing an Internet connection. It is ready for viewing in minutes but you will need to buy the Sony active 3D glasses to enjoy the 3D experience.
Connections are located behind the left side of the screen facing both the left edge of the set and downward. Two USB connections, two HDMI connections, a PC connection, headphone jack, optical audio-out, and an audio-in jack for the PC are all located on the side. There are two more HDMI ports, component connection, cable or antenna connection, and the Ethernet port located on the downward facing strip.
Energy Guide Notes
Of course your own costs for using this television are dependent on personal use. However, the US federal Energy Guide label rates this set well below the range of kilowatts used by similar televisions. Based upon 6 hours of use, this TV will cost you about $16 a year to operate.
The Sony XBR-46HX929 is a beautiful flat panel set that performs extremely well regardless if you are viewing 3D content, 2D content or just enjoying the Internet experience. Thanks to its proximity sensor it looks after you while you are looking at the set. The motions sensor helps minimize energy consumption by turning off the set when no one is present. Grab a pair of Sony 3D glasses (sold separately) to get the full 3D experience when the black monolithic display instantly brightens to full LED backlighting after switching on. Enjoy the entertainment value of full HD renderings in both 2D and 3D modes of your favorite show or sports competitions with the Sony Bravia XBR-46HX929.
