Sony Bravia KDL - XBR6 review:


Sony has always reserved its best features and highest performance for its "XBR"-branded HDTVs, and this year there's an unprecedented three series of Sony sets bearing the moniker. The most-expensive is the XBR8 series , with LED backlighting ,...

Produces the deepest black levels of any non-LED LCD TV we've tested; accurate color temperature and color decoding; solid dejudder video processing; numerous picture controls; comprehensive complement of inputs including four HDMI and one PC; optional...

Expensive; some color accuracy issues; black levels fluctuate somewhat in dark scenes; below-average screen uniformity; dejudder modes produce artifacts.

The 52-inch Sony KDL-52XBR6 LCD is a bit too expensive for the level of picture quality it delivers, but its styling and best-in-class black levels help its case.

Sony Bravia KDL-52XBR6


Sony's Bravia KDL-52XBR6 is one of their best performing TV's right now and it is definitely packed with a very large feature set and lots of functionality. The prices of LCD TV's has been falling dramatically and this model from Sony is no exception....

Very sleek, attractive TV ; Good sound quality ; Very deep, rich black levels

No memory card slots ; Bluish tint in some dark scenes, such as shadows

The audio quality of the built-in speakers along the bottom of the TV itself are decent enough for a small room, but if you want something more "realistic" when watching movies or for a bigger room, you'll want to hookup a 5.1 digital surround sound...

Product Specifications

The 52-inch KDL-52XBR6 delivers just what youd expect from Sonys high-performance XBR series: pinpoint picture clarity with gorgeous colors and naturally fluid motion. Actually this TV looks striking even before you turn it on. The piano-black bezel contrasts nicely with the silver speaker grille which is suspended in Sonys unique "floating glass" accent. A wider color range for deeply saturated huesIn an LCD television the backlight determines the range of colors the TV can reproduce. A wider color range means that more vivid colors can be displayed. The KDL-52XBR6s "wide color gamut" backlight produces a specific spectrum of light optimized for Sonys special color filters. The system reproduces more of the full broadcast TV color range — 25% more than standard backlights. Youll notice more realistic color and skin tones on all your video sources from movies and TV shows to digital photos.
