Everything is the same on the 40 inch model KDL-40R510C except for the weight and measurements.

Sony KDL-48R510C weighs 23 pounds without stand (stand weighs an extra 1.3 inch) and measures 42.88 x 25.13 x 2.63 inches without stand, looks quite elegant and beautiful with very thin bezels and slim profile, has a detachable black stand and is VESA wall mountable. It offers some of the best picture quality out there (sharpest with great contrast and fine details with features like Clear Resolution Enhancer) for how much it costs. And more importantly this is a Full HD TV with about twice the sharpness of regular high definition TV’s.  It comes with built-in Smart features including wireless connection so that your can stream high definition videos easily from a variety of content providers like Youtube, Hulu and Netflix and to have access to / choose from wireless music, games, TV shows, videos. You have the Wi-Fi and Miracast (Screen Mirroring) technology built into the system so you can share content wirelessly from tablets or smart phones and an Ethernet port, 2 x HDMI inputs, Component video input as a hybrid port with shared Composite video source and 2 x USB ports to connect multimedia peripherals.

Sony KDL48R510C and KDL40R510C FHD Smart LED TVSound is provided by a decent sound system of 5.1 channel sound output and two down-firing 8W stereo speakers with full-range 40 x 100mm speaker drivers and open baffle design or alternatively you can use the audio output port to hook up to a sound bar or home theatre system for far better sound. Clear Resolution Enhancer picture engine is there for finer details and better and crisper picture quality overall with decreased picture noise and ideal on-screen depth. This is a LED TV with edge LED backlighting with thin and powerful LED lights and frame dimming for more vibrant colours, improved details in darker scenes and superior contrast. Other features that help with superior image quality and that are specific to Sony include ACE- Advanced Contrast Enhancer, Live color technology, Frame blinking and 24p True Cinema technology. As small cons we can point out the 60Hz refresh rate which could be better and the 89 degree viewing angles horizontally and vertically as it doesn’t have an IPS panel with up to 178 degrees. It is an Energy Star certified unit with energy consumption of 75 watts max and 0.40 when on standby mode (in 120V voltage) and it includes energy saving features and the limited warranty included is valid for 1 year and all these features with the great Sony brand quality are offered at a rather affordable price.
