Bravia

In reply to: Sony Bravia 46' full 1080p

I'm not sure about the new Sony sets that are arriving, but my experience with the past models is that the XBR was better (my personal 2-cents) than the Bravia, so if you can, buy the XBR model. Last XBR models were a few hundred dollars more.

we just put one out...

In reply to: Sony Bravia 46' full 1080p

right out of the box, the first thing i noticed was how dull it looked. if you look at the 40xbr1 and the 40s2000, the xbr looks a lot more "sexy" then the s2000. the new 46xbr2 is not sexy ihmo. the clear plastic around the case of the case that gives it a "floating" effect looked cool for about 5 minutes (it looked a lot better in the pictures).

as far as picture goes...my first impression of the picture was that it was BRIGHT. we have it sitting next to the 46s2000 from sony and the 46inch lcd from samsung. it was the brightest out of the bunch. the picture quality was a little bit more clearer then the 46s2000....but after messing around with the colors....it just didnt "wow" me like the first time i saw the 40xbr. there is a $1000 price difference and i did not see anything that would justify that definitely see it before you buy it....just because difference.

it says Sony XBR doesnt always mean its going to be amazing (IE the 34xbr960 vs. 34xbr970).

So would you that it looks good? I think the "floating" looks ok in my opinion. So would you say that the picture looks really good?

dont get me wrong

In reply to: tv

its a great tv and all that....and for $4k, its a decent deal. just make sure you look at the picture first and compare it side by side before buying. its like comparing a bmw and a mercedez.....they're both good...but i personally would take a bmw m5 over a mercedez s55 anyday.

I COULD TELL NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SXRD AND A D.L.P. T.V

In reply to: tv

After a year searching for that perfect picture and wanting a 70" + screen size I looked at a Sony 70" I believe a l.c.d. unit. the picture looked very dim and bad overall, I chose a 72" d.l.p. And I love it, I have seen the SXRD sets and to tell you the truth I cant see any difference in picture quality over my d.l.p. set and soooo much cheaper Also Sonys l.c.d. t.v.s really had a dull choppy picture any comments please and please dont bash me this is my opinion only. I love Sony products,Its just that some folks who own Sony t.v.s really get pissed off when you mention any other brand name. ha ha ha let the war begin have a nice day stewee

I'm talking about the Bravia series, not the SXRD.

Yes

In reply to: (NT) STEWART, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT FLAT PANEL LCD

Not the SXRD. That is rear projection, isn't it? The one I am talking about is thin, like a plasma.

In reply to: NO!

Why do people bash 1080p?

Collapse -
also...

In reply to: NO!

Pak you also supported 1080p in some of your other posts, so why bash me for wanting it? By the way this tv does support 1080p...look it up.

Not at all

In reply to: also...

That was in response to riverledge's post. You can see that I said I must have 1080p. The hype comment was in jest.

You ask for problems when you constantly bring up the same stupid issue.

Lets review.......

A few days ago you claimed that you didn't know that the XBR1 sets were LCoS based. Now you're starting up about dlp's being better than the SXRD's and all you're doing is making yourself look like a complete fool.

Notwhidstanding the fact that everyone here knows that you're simply talking trash and trying to get people's buttons pushed. When people correct you and they tell you something you don't want to hear, you resort to asking them not to read your posts, apologizing for not knowing the real facts and this and that. So, from now on, before you claim that dlp is better than the sxrd technology, go and read some real reviews so you can get educated on the subject.

Bravia is Colorful

In reply to: Sony Bravia 46' full 1080p

I have seen the 40 and 46 inch models 3 months ago in Tokyo. The New Bravia X series concentrates more on accurate color reproduction. The picture looks awesome but soft at times. The factory setting tends to push more color and gamma on screen. The Sony Style stores used to play HD version of Batman Begins and Ultraviolet. Off-late they changed the standard def DVDs with upscaling sony player to exhibit the strength of bravia processing for SD feeds. I think the 52 inch model was launched in end of July I think. The 60 inch rear projection models are not available in Japan due to less demand coz of it's bulkiness. I think US and rest of the world needs to wait for few more weeks to peek into the new dragon.
