Sony KDL-52XBR10 LED HDTV Preview
The 52" Bravia XBR10 Edge lit LED High Definition Television is one of the thinnest HDTVs that Sony has produced.  Bypassing plasma or LCD technology, the XBR10 series uses edge lit LED backlighting to produce a high contrast image.  Sony claims the dynamic contrast rating is 1,000,000:1.  Being a sidelit television allows for a skinny design, but the television isn't capable of localized background dimming.  The XBR10 does come equipped with a separate media box called the BRAVIA 1080 wireless transmission system.  It sends a 1080p audio / video signal to the receiver inside the television and looks like a typical cable box.  In other words, there are no cables to connect to the actual television beyond the power cable.  The XBR10 also plays 24p content via HDMI and also utilizes 240Hz technology to interpolate three frames for each one. ...

Sony 120 GB Playstation 3 Slim Review
Since its inception, Sony’s Playstation 3 quickly ascended the ranks as a market leader – just not in the demographic that the electronics giant would’ve probably preferred.  Though it’s become well respected in the gaming sector, its prowess lies in the computing machine’s ability to handle Blu-ray technology on the cinematic side of things.  At around $100 less than most of the competition, it decodes advanced audio tracks as an earmark on Sony’s barrage of firmware enhancements while providing an admirable picture and full interactivity with the technology’s BD-Live and BD-Java 2.0 capacities.  More advanced machines have now slipped into the market that takes the unit’s capability down a few pegs, but it’s unequivocally still the best value – you know, because it ‘s also a fine gaming machine and media hub.Much like the transition between slimline and launch Playstation ...

Sony KDL-46Z4100 LCD HDTV
It’s Springtime, and along with the Birds & the Bees, pollen alerts and hearing about all the government bailout cash you’re not getting, the new crop of TVs which debuted at January’s 2009 CES are hitting the shelves or online reseller’s fulfillment warehouses.  So, a Sony 46Z4100, what’s with reviewing LAST year’s television technology?  Isn’t that a bit like reading yesterday’s newspaper - or perhaps more appropriate to our times, a Blog that’s an hour old, or an Instant Message or Tweet from thirty seconds ago?  All seemingly fruitless exercises.  But sometimes a glance back reveals a hidden gem that may have been overlooked in the midst of the dizzying array of technical specifications, product features and marketing among brands, all vying for your attention and dollars.  The Sony KDL-46Z4100 LCD TV is one of those.It’s packed with advanced video ...

Sony VPL-VW70 Projector
Sony has placed the VPL-VW70 at the top position of their current home cinema projector line.  I found the design to be reminiscent of the Playstation 3 shell, but with a refined, stylish grace.  The midnight black, curved panels on the upper and lower sections of the unit are slick, glossy and frame the unit perfectly.  The position of the cooling fans is indiscernible and the front of the projector features a motorized lens cover that effortlessly slides open when the power is turned on.  It would almost be a shame to hide the projector from view in a custom home theater installation.  The VPL-VW70 (MSRP: $7,999.99) utilizes three SXRD 1920 by 1080 display panels and their Bravia Engine 2 digital video processor to produce a high definition 1080p image.  Sony claims that it’s capable of 60,000:1 contrast ratio using ...

Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray Player
Released in the Fall 2008, Sony’s third generation BDP-S350 Blu-ray player offers consumers Profile 2.0, BD-Live interactive features along with improved performance all around without having to pay the premium early adopters did for the first and second-generation players, or to buy a Playstation 3.  Still considered the optimum target platform for Blu-ray Java and BD-Live content because of its processing power, the PS3 was a difficult notion for many to grasp since it was primarily known as a game machine.  For customers looking for the most powerful Blu-ray player, most sales people in big box stores weren’t much help in sorting out Profile 1.0, Profile 1.1 or Profile 2 features and benefits.  Either they didn’t know one from the other or they were pushing the higher priced, typically inferior standalone Blu-ray players over the cheaper, higher performing PS3.The BDP-S350 ...
