Sony Bravia KDL-46XBR4 LCD HDTV
The Basics: Sony’s XBR4 and XBR5 lines represent the company’s top-of-the-line 2007 LCDs; the two lines are distinguished by aesthetic differences but offer similar features and performance. The KDL-46XBR has the same floating-bezel design as 2006’s XBR2/3 Series, with a clear acrylic border and a matte-black frame that houses the two speakers. For $300, you can customize the XBR4 with a different-colored bezel; options are silver, velvet black, scarlet red, Arctic white, sienna brown and Pacific blue. The KDL-46XBR4’s marquee feature is its Motionflow 120-hertz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120 Hz to minimize the appearance of judder and render smoother motion. Other worthwhile features include the use of a 10-bit processor and 10-bit display, the inclusion of three HDMI 1.3 inputs (including one on the side panel), TheaterSync for more intuitive control of HDMI-connected components and ...

Sharp Aquos LC-46D92U LCD HDTV
The Basics: The D92U Series is one of Sharp’s highest-end LCD lines, and its marquee feature is the use of 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz in order to reduce the appearance of judder and render smoother motion. The LC-46D92U is a 46-inch, 1080p model with a traditional CCFL backlight, gloss-black frame and slim, detachable speaker bar. The TV has a solid connection panel that includes three side-facing HDMI inputs, two component video inputs and a DVI input for PC sources, all of which accept 1080p/60 but not 1080p/24. An RS-232 port is on board to integrate the TV into an advanced control system. There’s a nice assortment of picture controls, including an adjustable backlight that lets you tailor the TV’s light output and black level to your viewing conditions. The OPC feature automatically adjusts image ...

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.

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 ...
