Sony KDS-A2000 review: Sony KDS-A2000

 

Intro Sony has enjoyed a lofty place on our top HDTV products lists for a long time, first with the KD-34XBR960 CRT television, then with the KDL-V40XBR1 LCD , and most recently with the KDS-R60XBR1 rear-projection , our highest-rated HDTV for 2005. So...

Can produce deep blacks with excellent shadow detail; can resolve every line of 1080 resolution sources; compact design with bottom-mounted speakers; incredible amounts of picture control; ample connectivity with dual 1080p-compatible HDMI inputs,...

Somewhat expensive; inaccurate primary colors; no picture-in-picture; disappointing VGA connection.

Although more costly than its DLP competition, the excellent picture quality of Sony's KDS-60A2000 will be worth the difference to most viewers.

Sony KDS-60A2000 SXRD HDTV

 

I've been getting a lot of letters asking when there will be cheaper 1080p displays. Well, this 60-inch model is $300 cheaper than the last 50-inch Sony 1080p RPTV we reviewed. The 50-inch model in the new A2000 line is a full $900 cheaper. This...

Viewing of program material after calibration revealed slightly oversaturated reds and a barely perceptible rosy hue on some bright scenes that did not show up in color-temperature measurements. Backing off the color saturation and red gain controls...

For HD, I checked out the 16 Blocks, Training Day, and (blech) The Phantom of the Opera HD DVDs, which are the best-looking HD choices at the moment. All looked better than DVD but lacked in really fine detail.

Sony KDS-55A2000 review

 

Full HD, giant screen, great price... sounds good to us

It's full HD ; Superb picture quality with no defects ; Great price

Requires a lot of room

It may be big in the wrong directions but price, SXRD technology and full HD capability make it a winner
