Sony's first 4K television is a monster


Where can I buy it?



Composite input?

At 84-inches, the XBR-84X900 will be one of the largest TVs on the market when it debuts in 2012. It is a 4K TV, which means it has a resolution of 3,840x2,160 pixels, which is exactly four times 1080p. It features passive 3D, which means its 3D resolution will be 4k/1k, greater than any existing 3D system. See an in-depth rundown of the XBR-84X900 here.

The TV comes with a 10-driver stereo speaker system which, based on our demo, can go quite loud. It features two onboard scalers -- called the X-Reality Pro 4k system -- to take content first to 2K, and then another to take it up to the panel's native resolution of 4K. The TV is wireless and features onboard SmartTV.

Local pricing is not official, but the TV is likely to be around the $25,000-plus mark and will be available by December 2012.

The TV is edge-lit with local dimming, and yet still features a slim bezel and profile.

Though the TV is preproduction, the telly appears to have at least three HDMI inputs and two USB ports.

Composite: remember that? If you're crazy enough to still use composite inputs on a TV of this kind, your checkbook will be revoked.
