Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S4000 Draw the LINE Design

On June 16, 2008, Sony announced its BRAVIA S4000 line of LCD TVs sporting Sony’s ‘draw the LINE’ design concept that sports a simple pared-down design. The S4000 series come in four sizes, but the one you should be most interested in is the 40″ KDL-40S4000. You see, only the KDL-40S4000 sports a 1920 x 1080 pixel format from the S4000 line. Second, the 40″ features the BRAVIA Engine 2 while the other ones don’t. They (26″, 32″, 37″) are stuck with the regular BRAVIA Engine (without the ‘2’).

The KDL-40S4000 sips very little power when in standby mode, just 0.19W. It is environmentally friendly in other ways: all cover and housing parts that are 25g and heavier along with the printed circuit boards (PCBs) are halogen-free. Also, the built-in ambient light sensor measures the brightness of the environment and toggles the brightness of the TV. This can get annoying sometimes and personally, I would turn it off, is possible.
