Samsung LN-T4671F LCD HDTV
The Basics: The 71 Series is Samsung’s top-of-the-line offering in the traditional LCD space. By traditional, we mean that the TV uses a CCFL backlight (the higher-end 81 Series uses LED backlighting). This 46-inch, 1080p model features Samsung’s Auto Motion Plus 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120 Hz to render smoother motion and reduce the appearance of judder in film sources. Samsung’s implementation includes low, medium, high and off settings. Other features in the 71 Series include: the use of Samsung’s Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) processing and Super Clear LCD panel, the inclusion of three HDMI 1.3 inputs (including one on the side panel), Wiselink, which lets you display JPEGs and play MP3s via the USB 2.0 port on the side panel, a game mode and slot-style speakers, with SRS TruSurround XT audio processing. This HDTV ...

Sony Bravia KDL-40W3000 LCD HDTV
The Basics: In terms of price, the W Series falls in the middle of Sony’s LCD lineup, yet it offers many of the same technologies and features found in the company’s higher-end XBR4 and XBR5 lines. Like its higher-end brethren, this 40-inch 1080p model includes a 10-bit processor and 10-bit display to improve color transitions and lessen the appearance of digital noise, and it offers both standard and wide color-space modes, allowing you to choose between colors that are more saturated and ones that are more accurate. This TV also has an adjustable backlight and light sensor to tailor its brightness and black levels based on your viewing environment. It uses Sony’s popular XrossMediaBar and offers both side-by-side and picture-in-picture viewing options. The most notable difference between the W Series and the higher-end lines is the lack of Motionflow 120Hz technology. The ...

Samsung HL-T5689S LED DLP HDTV
The Basics: The HL-T5689S is a 56-inch, 1080p DLP rear-projection television that replaces the traditional DLP color-wheel/lamp combination with a light engine that uses red, green and blue LEDs. This advanced technology adds a little more to the bottom line, compared with a standard DLP RPTV, but this TV is still a good deal compared with similarly-sized flat panels. The HL-T5689S includes Samsung’s Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) processing and Cinema Smooth light engine, designed to reduce visible pixel structure and improve fine detail. The well-designed menu system contains a nice assortment of picture adjustments, including white-balance controls, a choice of three color gamuts (wide, normal and sRGB), and a My Color Control that lets you fine-tune pink, green and blue hues independently. There are six aspect ratio choices, including a Just Scan mode for viewing 1080i/1080p images with no overscan. The TV’s ...

Samsung LN-T4071F LCD HDTV
Introduction I find it amazing how far video quality has come in such a short amount of time. It seems only yesterday that I was reading and lusting over flat panel EDTVs that cost more than I made in a year to today’s endless buffet of HD sets at prices my 16-year-old brother can afford. It appears, at least for the time being, that 1080p is the Holy Grail for all things HD video. However, not wanting to rest on their laurels, manufacturers have pioneered new ways of making 1080p stronger, faster, better. Now, your 1080p display has to have 120Hz refresh rate and be able to accept a native 24p signal from today’s leading-edge HD sources. I was first introduced to 120Hz earlier this year with the Sony Bravia KDS-55A3000 rear-projection TV, which I thought was utterly fantastic. I was ...

Sony KDS-55A3000 55-inch Bravia SXRD HDTV
Introduction With HDTV’s flying off the shelves nationwide with and prices dropping like clothes off a stripper in a Champagne room, there’s no need to beat around the bush when it comes to Sony’s latest rear pro TV, the 55-inch Bravia KDS-55A3000. It’s going to sell. The question is, do you want one? Sony’s new Bravia TV arrived at my office shortly after the mighty Vizio 60-inch plasma left my humble abode, and within days of my purchase of the latest Samsung 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV (review pending). I had enjoyed the Vizio immensely and felt that it was a solid value for the money. However, when I heard that the new Sony Bravia retailed for $1,999 (a full $500 less than the Vizio), I was at a loss for words. When was the last time you heard of any state ...
