The BDP-CX960 MegaChanger is a Blu-ray player capable of storing and changing up to 400 Blu-ray discs.  Part of Sony’s entrance into Blu-ray changers, the BDP-CX960 is the more economical of the two changers released.  Up to 400 discs – CD, DVD and Blu-ray – can be stored and played in the CX960.  Blu-ray discs are displayed in 1080/24p while standard DVDs are upscaled to near HD resolutions.  Sony’s newest MegaChanger does offer support for BD-Live, though an external USB drive for storage is required.The included Ethernet port on the BDP-CX960 is used for more than just BD-Live.  By tapping into Gracenote, the CX960 is able to download cast information, jacket artwork and more for each DVD or Blu-ray disc.  By displaying this information on screen while searching through discs, the CX960 makes it a bit simpler to find the ...

Samsung LN65B650 LCD HDTV Preview
The Samsung LN65B650 65" LCD HDTV is the most recent in their "Touch of Color" series.  The "Touch of Color" adds a distinct, artistic red glow around the piano black, glossy bezel of the television.  It's accomplished by coating a translucent surface over the frame of bezel. The high definition television displays content up to a 1080p resolution and utilizes Samsung's "Auto Motion Plus" 120Hz proprietary technology to insert a non-repetitive transition between frames for a smoother picture.  Owners can select from blur reduction via frame interpolation, judder reduction or adjusting the picture to include both.  Samsung claims the television offers a 100,000 to 1 dynamic contrast ratio.  The Samsung LN65B650 also comes with "Medi@ 2.0", their title for including Internet technology within the television.  Via an Ethernet connection, the 65" HDTV implements Yahoo widgets along the sides of the ...

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 ...
