Sony E4000

Cunningly disguised as a landscape photograph, this is Sony's E4000 series Picture Frame TV, designed to fit in with a wide range of decors thanks to the availability of four colour frame options.

Apparently 'Inspired by the new Draw the LINE concept by Sony', the LCD screens come in a choice of 26in, 32in and 40in sizes.

The sets also have Sony's Picture Frame mode, meaning they can display either pre-loaded images, or your own pictures from a USB memory device slotted into the side of the screen, when you're not watching TV.

The 32in and 40in models are Full HD 1080p designs, with 24fps handling available across the range, while the 40in model also supports x.v.Colour and uses a 10-bit LCD panel.

Sony's Bravia Sync remote capability is standard across the range, and all the sets have integrated Freeview and HD tuners, three HDMIs and two Scarts.

All the models can be wall-mounted, with the 32in KDL-32E4000 and 40in KDL-40E4000 models also coming with a table stand and the 26in KDL-26E4000 being freestanding. The screen surrounds are available in Midnight Sky, Aluminium, Pearly White and Dark Walnut.

Would be grateful if anyone let me know when Sony E4000 series will hit the shops in the UK and what is the difference between KDL-40E4000 and KDL-40X3050?

Just add the Wharfedale picture frame speakers and you have 100% W.A.F.

Shouldn't that be MAF - Mum Acceptance Factor?

Looks very nice but this has to be the most anti-green tv ever.

Displaying pictures is going to mean its on maybe 16 hours per day every day, so thats maybe 150-200w for 16hours per day 365 days per week!

Whereas I'm no greenie, I can see the folly in this and apart from anything else, just think how much quicker your tv's going to wear out!

They reduce power when showing pictures, and can also be set to shut down after a set period of disuse.

Or you can of course just turn them off when not watching TV...
