Sony's KDL-46Z4100 LCD TV Proves DLNA Isn't So Great

32815340-2-440-OVR-1.jpgCNET recently reviewed Sony's 46-inch KDL-46Z4100 LCD TV, featuring 1080p resolution, 30000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and 120 Hz technology. And while the KDL-Z4100 produces accurate primary colors, reasonably deep (but not the best) black levels, and a generous 4 HDMI slots, Sony's mid-range LCD's DLNA networking capabilities fell short. Only supporting the streaming of JPEG photos over an ethernet connection, Sony eliminates music and video streaming altogether. Why? CNET proposes that Sony may want to sell more Bravia Internet Video Link's, the company's external streaming device. Whatever the case may be, an ethernet port is pretty useless if its sole use is streaming photos to your TV. If you have a USB thumbdrive, however, you can also playback music files for some reason...but not video. Interesting choice of strategy Sony.
