Sony KZ-TS1

 

Although it has the resolution for HDTV, Sony's smaller plasma falls short of the standards set by the competition.

HDTV-capable; 1,024x852 resolution; wide-screen, 16:9 aspect ratio; gamma correction, CineMotion 3:2 pull-down; built-in tuner and speakers

I have to say first that I'm real partial to Sony. My first Sony TV that I bought was in 1986 (a 25" XBR), and it just croaked this year.

Great performer with great looks.
