Sony Bravia KDL-52XBR2

 

Although the picture quality of the stylish, expensive Sony KDL-52XBR2 falls short against like-size plasmas, it's still one of the best-performing LCDs we've tested.

The Sony KDL-52XBR2 flat-panel LCD TV has a unique design with a glass border around the screen; interchangeable bezel color; accurate primary colors and color decoding; clean image with little false contouring; excellent connectivity with three HDMI...

Expensive; reproduces lighter blacks than like-size plasmas; subpar standard-definition processing

Sony Bravia KDL-40XBR2

 

Excellent image contrast. Superb color quality. Stylish design with customizable features

Lackluster standard definition video processing. Useless EPG. Decreased color saturation at relatively acute viewing angles

The Sony KDL-40XBR2 exceeds its predecessor in almost every way—more pixels, more digital video inputs, and a lower price—though its treatment of standard-definition video leaves room for improvement.

Sony KDL-46XBR2

 

In that other format war, LCD flat panel technology has been making great strides in its attempt to match plasma in picture quality. Is this the year that LCD catches up?

There is a lot to like about the Sony KDL-46XBR2. Spot-on color temperature and realistic color reproduction when calibrated. Plus that mouth-watering detail -- 2 million pixels of it. It really can look breathtaking on certain high definition...

For this price, you should expect 1080p resolution, and you get it. The Sony KDL-46XBR2 also has a larger screen, jumping from 42 to 46 inches—which makes more of a difference than you might think. At least for me, the 46-inch mark is the point at...

The KDL-46XBR2 isn't meant for the average consumer who wants a plug-and-play living-room TV on which to watch a lot of standard-definition sources. Clearly, Sony intends for this HDTV to be the anchor of a high-end home theater system sporting the...

Test Bench: Sony Bravia KDL-40XBR2 40-inch LCD HDTV

 

Color points were reasonably accurate. Overscan - the amount of picture area "hidden" behind the edges of the TV's screen - measured 0% for both the HDMI and component-video inputs with the Full Pixel modes active, while the set's other overscan...

Sony BRAVIA KDL-52XBR2 Flat Panel: First Look

 

The Pearl wasn't the only significant product introduction from Sony at CEDIA 2006. Sony introduced a big, 52" BRAVIA LCD flat panel with full-on 1080p resolution. As with the 46" BRAVIA LCD we recently reviewed (and dug) this one is loaded with...

The introduction of this big LCD panel at CEDIA 2006 was overshadowed somewhat by Sony's introduction of the Pearl SXRD projector, but we're going to fix that right here and now. LCD is where Sony butters its flat panel bread, and this one is loaded....
