Product Details
Description
This is HD done the Sony way. The 42 KDL-42V4100 flat panel HDTV brings 1080p picture quality home with amazing, Sony-exclusive features like the XMB (Xross Media Bar) with 3D graphics, DMex capability so you can add functionality to your TV, and picture quality technologies like ACE (Advanced Contrast Enhancer) and BRAVIA engine 2 that make images come alive. Add to that a sophisticated, piano black design and 24p capability for getting the most out of Blu-ray Disc and DVD movies, and you have a television that exceeds your expectations. There are also four HDMI inputs and three other HD-capable connections, so there is ample room for expansion.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-42V4100
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jun 25, 2009

The Sony BRAVIA KDL-42V4100 is a 42" full HD 1080p LCD television that is a part of Sonys BRAVIA V series. Picture quality technologies like Advanced Contrast Enhanser (ACE) and BRAVIA Engine 2 give life like images, while BRAVIA Theatre Sync offers easy one-button operation for enjoying a Sony A/V system. This full HD 1080 TV has a 1920 x 1080 picture resolution and features Motionflow 60Hz technology for smooth and clear motion. The 24p input capability allows you to connect to devices, such as Sonys Blu-ray player, which use a 24 frame per second frame rate which is used by most movies. Some other notable features include Sonys Digital Media Extender (DMex), Xross Media Bar (XMB) interface and the S-Force Front Surround enhancement function. There are plenty of inputs including four HDMI and 15-pin PC input for maximum HD connectivity. The Sony BRAVIA KDL-42V4100 comes with a remote control. Video ... PROS: (1) 1080p (2) PC input (3) no glossy finish - helps keep reflection/glare low (4) quality remote control (5) excellent quality picture ... CONS: (1) older 60Hz refresh rate - poor for 24 fps films, or media with lots of motion (2) slow input source switching delay (3) ugly/distracting lower bezel

It's not your grandmother's TV!
5 Star Review   By member Seagull496 - Mar 18, 2009   

Strengths: Excellent color, great tech support

Weakness: Couldn't find any

Love the colors and the appearance of a 3D picture that is HD. Hung it on the wall, but had to call SONY's hot line as we weren't getting a signal. Their rep was very throrough and we found it was the cable box's problem. The HDMI connection was not good and COMCAST informed us this is a common problem with their cable boxes. So if you get a new cable box have them test it before you set it up. It will save you a lot of time.

5 Star Review   By member jyoung3381 - Aug 28, 2008   

Strengths: Smart looking, great picture and sound, easy to setup.

Weakness: None yet

We couldn't fit a 46 incher, so we had to go for a 40 or 42. After the research I found that we could buy a 42 for about the same price as a 40. The problem was the lack of reviews on this TV. We installed in on a cable TV line directly without the cable box. It could not have been easier. Installing the pedestal was a snap! We plugged the TV in, and the easy to follow programing guide had us setup in minutes (except the time the TV needed to self install the analog and digital tv channels. That gave me time to do the unmanly thing of reading the instructions. The TV has great sound, top quality picture and is easy to operate. All of our older components (amp, dvd player and vcr) were previously connected to the old TV on a SONY coaxial line. I just inserted that line directly into the yellow video in plug on the new TV and all worked perfectly! This TV has more HDMI and video and component inputs than I will ever find a use for.

5 Star Review   By member fredr401 - Jul 24, 2008   

Strengths: Very good Picture and clear sound

Weakness: Some times the people on screen seem very broad shouldered, in other words fatter than they really are.

So far we are very pleased with the Sony 42V4100 TV. We did our homework and compared all the TV's on display and by far this one had the best picture. We highly recomend this TV to any one looking for a great TV at a reasonable price.
