Sony Bravia KDL-70XBR7 LCD HDTV Preview
The Sony KDL-70XBR7 BRAVIA is one of a small number of options available to the consumer looking for a seventy inch picture but not wanting to use a projector.  The largest of the XBR7 series, the 70” KDL-70XBR7 offers a large screen and 1080p resolution along with a range of picture enhancement technologies. Sony’s 70” XBR7 offers a full 1080p/24 experience, as well as Motionflow 120Hz technology, which effectively doubles the frame rate of HD content to help smooth out fast movements.  An on screen contrast ratio of 1,500:1 is achieved through the Advanced Contrast Enhancer circuit, which creates darker blacks without losing fine details. 10-bit technology is featured in both the KDL-70XBR7’s processor, but in the panel as well.  The combination of the two allows a much greater ability to transition between colors and helps to eliminate sharp changes. With the BRAVIA ...

Sony XEL-1 OLED Digital TV Preview
Sony’s XEL-1, the first OLED on the market, certainly stands out as a unique option for high definition viewing.  While the 11” screen does limit the utility of the XEL-1 OLED TV, the novelty of having early access to the impressive OLED technology may be enough for some buyers. The XEL-1 features a 960 x 540 resolution, making it a quarter of the resolution of a 1080p set.  Not technically high definition, Sony is quick to point out that the pixel density of the 11” display is the same as that of a 40” 1080p LCD television. The main attraction of OLED televisions isn’t resolution however.  The main attractions to the new technology are its bright accurate colors and unparalleled blackness.   Sony’s OLED television features a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and Sony states that it is able to reproduce 105 percent of ...

Samsung UN46B8500 LED HDTV Preview
One of Samsungs new LED backlit HDTVS, the UN46B8500 – or the LED 8500 as Samsung calls it – features a slim design and a fairly strong feature set. The 46” member of Samsung’s 8500 8 Series comes in at just over an inch and a half thick and at right about 41lbs.  The TV’s frame is black, but with a hint of grey, a feature Samsung refers to as a “Touch of Color”. The UN46B8500 features a 1080p resolution and a 7,000,000:1 contrast ratio thanks to local dimming and Samsung’s Mega Contrast technology.  While the black isn’t as deep as the still beloved Pioneer Kuro plasmas, the LED 8500 boasts impressive darkness for an LCD screen. Samsung hopes to bring a very high quality picture to the table, stressing a focus on clarity, color and contrast.  To get the color they’re looking ...

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 "[email protected] 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. ...
