The Sony BRAVIA KDL-40EX520 is a mid-cost LED TV. This TV is equipped with a Presence Sensor feature, which detects the people in the room and what they are doing to automatically switch to Normal mode (when people are in the room and awake), Picture Off mode (when body heat but no motion is detected) or Standby mode (for when no one is around), a process that minimizes wasteful power consumption. The display of the BRAVIA KDL-40EX520 is forty inches of full HD (1080p). The LED is distributed using Sony's Edge design, which allows for a thin TV. The X-Reality Engine of the BRAVIA KDL-40EX520 utilizes Sony's Intelligent Image Enhancer technology to separate incoming video into constituent parts (outline, texture, and color/contrast). The engine then makes the appropriate image enhancements. The X-Reality Engine also uses Intelligent MPEG Noise Reduction to automatically detect the incoming sources and noise level, and then apply the appropriate amount of noise reduction for each scene. This model differs from the lower cost BRAVIA KDL-32EX520 model in that the BRAVIA KDL-32EX520 has only a thirty-two inch display. This model differs from the higher cost BRAVIA KDL-46EX520 model in that the BRAVIA KDL-46EX520 has a forty-six inch display. The BRAVIA KDL-40EX520 LED TV is WiFi ready, but you must purchase the USB wireless LAN adapter separately.
