Sony Bravia KDL-52XBR5 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 XBR5 Series is the more expensive of the two, sporting a high-gloss piano-black frame surrounded by a clear acrylic border. The KDL-52XBR5 is a 52-inch, 1080p model. The TV’s generous input panel includes three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24 and two component video inputs that accept 1080p. The XBR5 also adds an RS-232 control port to the back panel, in order to integrate the TV into an advanced control system. The KDL-52XBR5 has a lot of aspect ratio options, including a zero-overscan mode. The KDL-52XBR5’s marquee feature is its Motionflow 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120 Hz to minimize the appearance of judder and render smoother motion. ...

Sharp Aquos LC-52D64U LCD HDTV
The Basics: Sharp’s D64U Series is also dubbed the Slim-line Series, as these LCDs have 25 percent less depth, 20 percent less weight and a thinner bezel surrounding the screen. Screen sizes range from 32 to 65 inches; the LC-52D64U is a 52-inch, 1080p model with a traditional CCFL backlight, gloss-black frame, and a thin silver speaker bar that runs discreetly along the bottom of the unit. The TV has a healthy connection panel that includes three HDMI 1.3 inputs and two component video inputs, all of which accept 1080p/60 but not 1080p/24. Sharp kindly puts both an HDMI and a component video input on the side panel for easier access when the TV is wall-mounted. An RS-232 port is on board to integrate the TV into an advanced control system, and a USB port is available for software upgrades. There’s a ...

Philips 47PFL9732D LCD HDTV
The Basics: This 47-inch, 1080p model hails from Philips’ high-end 2007 line and includes 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz to reduce the appearance of judder and render smoother motion. This TV also includes Philips’ Ambilight system, Perfect Pixel HD processing and a USB port through which you can perform firmware updates and play JPEG/MP3 files. Philips’ Settings Assistant automatically makes adjustments to picture controls by showing you a series of split-screen images; as you select which image you prefer, the TV adjusts the picture parameters accordingly. This TV offers a decent amount of image adjustments, including direct access to white-balance controls, but it lacks an adjustable backlight, offering only a light sensor that automatically adjusts image brightness based on your room’s lighting conditions.

Samsung LN-T5265F LCD HDTV
The Basics: The LN-T5265F hails from one of Samsung’s mid-level LCD lines. This 52-inch, 1080p model offers many of the features you’ll find in the higher-end 71 Series, with one notable omission: this TV lacks Auto Motion Plus 120Hz technology. The LN-T5265F is a traditional LCD that uses a CCFL backlight, which is adjustable to help you tailor light output and black level to suit your viewing conditions. It also features Samsung’s Super Clear LCD panel, a glossy screen that veers from the traditional matte-black you see with most LCDs.   This TV incorporates Samsung’s Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) processing and features three HDMI 1.3 inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24, with one located on the side panel for easy access. The side panel also has a USB 2.0 port that can display JPEGs and play MP3s, a feature Samsung calls Wiselink. ...

The Basics: The Cinema Series designates Toshiba’s highest-end offerings, and the LX moniker represents the 2007 line. This 52-inch, 1080p model incorporates Toshiba’s most advanced technologies and features. First of all, it offers 120Hz technology, in which the TV doubles the frame rate from 60 to 120Hz.

Both of these elements can be turned on or off. Other features include the use of Toshiba’s PixelPure 3G 14-bit processing and CineSpeed 10-bit LCD panel, plus a host of advanced image adjustments.
