TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The Sony R4 is quite simply, a great 40-inch Full HD TV. With HDD recording and a USB media player, you’ll be able to watch what you want at a time which suits. And thanks to a clear resolution enhancer, the picture quality boasts refined details for an even more immersive viewing experience.
Clear resolution enhancer
Reducing noise and imperfections is Sony’s clear resolution enhancer. This great feature makes images sharper and more natural, delivering a clear difference compared to standard LED TVs. Contrast has also been improved which adds more depth and realism to what you see on the screen.
Slim design
The elegant and slim design of the 40” screen joins form and function beautifully to blend seamlessly into its surroundings, even when mounted on the wall.
HDD recording
With the Sony R4 you’ll never miss your favourite TV programmes again because you can record them, and watch at a more convenient time for you and your family. Simply programme your TV to record your preferred show with an easy connection of a USB hard drive.
USB media player
With the USB media player, you’ll be able to enjoy all your favourite music, videos and photographs with easy playback. And thanks to Digital Noise Reduction, your media sources, including the PC input, can benefit from the same advanced image processing techniques that are given to cable, satellite and broadcast signals.
Smooth motion
With Motionflow XR 100Hz, every image on the screen refreshes at a higher rate than normal. Sports and fast-moving action look noticeably smoother, sharper and more natural, with reduced blur and judder.
Perfect partners
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TVs sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.
