It doesn't have 100Hz that'll be the 40W4500!

The W4000 does have a 10 bit panel vs. the V4000 which only has an 8 bit panel which does make the picture better even though they share the same dynamic contrast of 33,000.

The W4000 features additional colour enhancers and also a sensor and a USB socket. I'm sure there are a few other differences but their the main one's that spring to mind but you'll find that the picture quality is better on the W series.

Sorry, I do think the 40W4000 is a very good set, I have it's little brother, the 32W4000 but in the market for a 40" with 100Hz and the 40W4500 is a likely candidate.

I have the 40W4000, chose it over the 40W4500 because the frame design loosk amazing.

The speed of both panels (they are the same tv just the 45 has 100hx motion flow and a network feature) are fast so you dont really need the motionflow. I tested both side by side in a sony centre running various blu rays and some football. You can notice the 100hz in fast apnning shots BUT though bravia 100hz is better than samsung etc variants, it still makes scenes looks somewhat artificial (it apparently reproduces a frame ahead of it showing onscreen).

Down to preference but I use my ravia for PS3 gaming and HD viewing and love the 40W4000

ONE THING THOUGH - does anyone with either W4000 or W4500 suffer from Clouding? Turn the lights off, in a dark room look around the screen in a black picture and see if any areas are brighter than others.

meant to be a common lcd prob but would liek to know how common it is.

cheers!

wow...what a stunning review, this is the kind of comparison I was really looking for, thanks buddy, could you also tell me about the contrasts ratio difference the 30000 vs 50000 for the w4500, what exactaly does it do to make a difference to the picture qulity. thanks again for the excellent review, especially the 100 mhz one....

wow never knew they had the "w4500" exclusive (well its called the w710, but exactly the same except some cosmetic differences) but thats a decent price for the tv and home cinema system.

Haha no problems glad I could help.

As for the contrast ratios - and this is a personal opinion. So long as it QUOTES over 10k I think you are fine. I think technically it is "impossible" to have a contrast ratio over a certain number which is why they state DYNAMIC contrast ratio.

So for the bravia I have (w4000) it states 33k - to get that I would have to have it on dynamic, full power, light sensor off - basically burning my eyes in. In a shop they will have it on dynamic to show off colours in a VERY bright environment - at home neither I or any of my friend have our HDTVs on dynamic and we all play PS3 and watch hi def content.

As an example there was a Panasonic, Samsung and the Bravia next to eachother (sorry I did not recall models other than the bravia being the one I ended up buying) in JLP and the samsung guy was banging on about how that samsung "killed the rest for contrast". All I could see was the Panasonic has excellent colour depth, Sony too but the Samsung the colours were so bright the detail you could see esp with reds and blacks on clothes were bled out.

Oh yeah, and I asked about the clouding thing apparently it is on "all" lcd tvs - could someone do me a favor and check if they have it too? Turn your lights off, wack your backlight to max and brightness to 3/4 and get a black screen (not a blank channel but a dark or black signal picture - eg. pause in Dark Knight) and tell me if any bits of their screen is at all brighter than others? It would help me big time to decide whether or not to get an exhange!

Artonix - the JLP W4500 looks nicer then the normal model do you not think? they made it looks like the Z and W4000 with the silver speaker bar whereas the normal w4500 looks somewhat cheap samsung like (in my POV).
