Sony KDL-42V4100: 42

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a 42″ LCD TV from Sony. Sony has a LOT of 40″ LCD TV models but just one 42″. There is a reason for that. The joint venture with Samsung, S-LCD, is optimized to manufacture 40″ LCD panels. I’m not sure if this 42″ LCD panel is from S-LCD or from some other LCD manufacturer. Does anyone know? The specs look pretty decent: 1920 x 1080, high contrast ratio of 2500:1 (don’t worry too much about dynamic unless there is a LED backlight), and excellent viewing angles. When you’re at the store make sure to move from side to side and see if brightness and color changes quite a bit especially if you’re the type that watches TV while moving about doing other things.
