Sony KDL-46EX620 Review - Page 2

Value Rating: 7.5/10

The Sony KDL-46EX620 is a mid range Sony offering for 2011. At around $1199 we believe this TV will come down in price slightly through the year. It delivers a few extra features over the econo-models such as thin depth, a complete Internet suite, 120Hz, good black levels, and great design and appearance. It has its negatives as well as discussed above. Competition is from Samsung with the UN46D6300.

Overall Rating: 7.2/10

This testing always shows up in programming in one way or another as our processor testing reflects how well the picture processes out motion artifacts, jaggies, false contouring, moire' patterns and the like. We give this TV a 5/10 rating in processor testing.
