And now for something completly different - KDL-52XBR6

This time I'm looking for a 52 inch screen, and I found out that Sony released recently a new model in the Bravia series, called KDL-52XBR6.

It's a more high-end model, as it has features found only in more pricey models, such as advanced noise reduction, 10bit color processing, and 120Hz display. Ther are already reviews of Sony KDL-52XBR6, so go out there and read more about it, as I did.

Here are some of it's features:

* 16:9 Full HD 1080p Resolution (1920x1080p) LCD Panel
* DMex compatible; allows seamless feature upgrades
* BRAVIA Sync (Enhanced HDMI-CEC)
* BRAVIA Engine fully digital video processor
* Advanced Contrast Enhancer circuit (ACE)

Another hit at Plasma

Have you heard? Pioneer stops producing plasma HDTVs, and it will probably only buy the plasma panels from some other manufacturer. It's hitting the very popular (for it's quality, not price ;) ) KURO series of HDTVs.

But have no fear Pioneer will now concentrate on the LCD technology, probably making it at least as good as the plasma one.

it's ending all in-house plasma panel production and will build HDTVs based on panels bought elsewhere. The source went unnamed pending a final agreement, but Panasonic will likely follow up the 42-inch it's providing with plasmas of up to 60-inches.

Other fine HDTVs

There are many remarkable HDTVs available like Toshiba REGZA (which BTW has a great video on youtube).

But one might also consider some bigger screens than the 32" REGZA, such as 46 inch Sony Bravia KDL-46XBR4 (with some review), it is somehow high-ended (with appropriate price of around $2,600), but it provides a HUGE quality of the screen, I have seen it in a store and I probably fell in love with this HDTV :)

Wait for more of my HDTV journey...

Probably found the one

Hi again,
There are so many HDTV solutions out there that I don't know which to choose. Should I go with Plasma or LCD? Do I need 32" or 60"? Are does HDMI connectors really necessary?
Maybe I should wait for the wider spread of Blu-ray?

To answer on of those questions, I found out that besides Plasma and LCD there is a third way a DLP (LED) way of displaying the video. There aren't many HDTV that use DLP as it wasn't very cheap earlier (cause they needed a replacement of some thingy inside the TV every year or so), but now when technology is better they last even longer than LCD (not to mention Plasma).

One of the examples of this family is the Samsung HLT5087SAX which I must say looks amazing when you look at the thin frames!

This time I was looking at Samsung FPT5084, it is a nice HDTV, yeah, it's not cheap, but it is 50 inches !

I saw that it has very good contrast 15000 to 1, most of the screens I was looking so far had only 5000 to 1. Oh, and it displays colors using 18 bits, I'm not sure what it means but people say that it allows better colors (more vivid) which is also nice.

So, of to look for somre reviews of Samsung FPT5084

No luck

Still no luck at finding my new TV set, after christmas there isn't enough money for the large ones, but maybe I could get some smaller (32"?) and still enjoy some good quality movies?

Have to resort to google for help....
