sony-kdl46z4500Sony has come out with a new model that should grab the attention of any HDTV follower or anyone looking for the very latest in HDTV technology.

The Sony KDL46Z4500 is a 46? LCD that runs in HD at 1080p. Nothing that new here really. The model itself was announced a few months back, but is just in the last week or so been widely available in stores.

With a 1,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio and the realistic colour reproduction thanks to local dimming RGB Dynamic LED backlight technology, it adjusts to your surroundings and ambient light expertly to produce a really great picture, its been reported. You can even use it as a large digital picture frame and it will cycle your installed pics on the screen, which is a rather new feature on recent HDTV models. Four HDMI inputs included, and you can connect personal devices like a Walkman or iPod with the included Digital Media Port, which is very cool indeed.

A noteworthy feature of the KDL46Z500 is Voice Zoom. It boosts the dialogue while pushing down the background sounds (explosions, guns, etc). Great for watching a movie late at night without disturbing sleeping residents in the house.

Sounds like a very solid Sony entry in the HDTV category. You can grab it here.
