Resolution & Formats
The Sony Bravia KDL-46HX750 displays all standard NTSC formats.
The KDL-46HX750 was trounced by other similarly priced LCD TVs in this area. Its total viewing angle of 25° was not impressive in the least.
This Sony performed well on our motion performance tests. Moving images had some blurriness, but it was very little. Straight lines would get slightly jagged when moving across the screen.
Sony does have a motion processing feature on this TV called "Motionflow." There are five settings for this: smooth, standard, clear, clear plus, and impulse. Impulse and both clear settings decreased the backlight when turned on. Smooth and standard seemed to produce the most jarring examples of the dreaded Soap Opera Effect. Clear, clear plus, and impulse did not have as noticeable of an effect.
There is an additional setting called CineMotion, which Sony describes as providing "a more natural looking picture for film-based content." We assume this means it is another form of motion processing, but we could not discern any difference in the picture quality when it was turned on.
The Sony Bravia KDL-46HX750 is an edge-lit LED TV, although Sony would like you to refer to it as "Dynamic Edge LED." Regardless of the terminology, this means that the LEDs that light up the pixels on this TV are located on the edges. This was noticeable when the TV had an all-black screen: the corners of the Sony Bravia KDL-46HX750 produced a little bit of light. As such, it detracted from the screen's all black uniformity. With an all-white screen, however, the picture was nearly flawless.
