Sony LED TV Thins Out 2012 Range

Sony LED TV Range 2012 Sony has dropped over half of its existing Sony LED TV line-up, with only nine TVs to be released this year. The line-up has been simplified from 2011’s 22 models, with the NX series discontinued and the HX and EX series consolidated into four models. Sitting at the top of the range is the Sony HX850. Evolving from last year’s Sony HX820, the HX850 uses local-dimming edge LEDs and Sony’s updated X-Reality PRO picture engine driving a Full HD 1080p LCD panel. Sony rates the TV with its MotionFlow XR 800 moniker — 200Hz refresh rate with a scanning backlight for better motion performance. According to Sony Australia’s managing director Carl Rose, the HX850 is unmatched for picture quality: ““Put simply, we believe the BRAVIA HX850 is the best TV on the market. Smart TV We’ve done our research and we know that while the advent of Smart TV is changing the way we watch TV, the number one consideration when choosing a TV to buy is still outstanding picture quality — something we will never compromise on.” The Sony HX850 competes with LG’s full-array LED back-lit LM9600, Samsung’s local-dimming Series 8 LED TV, and Panasonic’s VT50 plasma, all of which tout improved picture quality over last year’s models. The HX850 will be available in mid-May in 55in and 46in sizes, with prices still to be confirmed. The Wider Sony LED TV Range The rest of Sony’s line-up includes the HX750, which is available in 55in, 46in, 40in and 32in screen sizes, the 46in and 40in EX650, and the 26in EX550. The HX750 loses...

Sony KDL-32EX524 review

Sony LED TV – KDL-32EX524 Review Sony’s 32-inch KDL-32EX524 is aimed at budget-conscious family buyers who don’t want a humungous TV taking over their lounge and aren’t fussed about 3D, but are instead looking for good online features.This model faces stiff competition from similarly priced sets around the £500 mark from the likes of LG and Samsung. So just how well does it stack up against them? Menu system Sony recently gave its Xross Media Bar (XMB) menu system an overhaul and this set uses the updated version. One of the key differences is that when you now call up the menus, they don’t completely obscure the programme you’re watching. Instead, the video feed is reduced in size and shifted towards the top-left of the screen. This leaves room for a rotating menu bar at the bottom and a vertical sub-menu bar on the right-hand side. The new system looks quite sleek and the animations and graphical effects are smooth. However, although it’s quicker to use than the old XMB menus, we still don’t think it’s the easiest system for novices to get to grips with. Nor is it the fastest to use when you’re looking to tweak an individual feature or setting. Sometimes you find yourself shuffling around the menus, wasting time, just trying to find the place where the settings you want to change or services you need to access are located. Some of the blame for this can be laid at the icons that Sony has used to distinguish between the different menus. You just can’t tell at a glance what many of them are meant...

Sony to ship passive 3D, OLED TVs in 2013

Passive 3D OLED TV Planet LED TV Comment – this is BIG news. People haven’t really liked Active Shutter 3D Glasses from the get go. And whilst passive 3D images are not quite as sharp, the difference is barely noticable. Certainly, being a wearer of glasses, I have been a champion of passive 3D, but if OLED TV is to go passive, surely that has to be the “death knell” for active 3D. Sony is to release a passive 3D OLED TV, and will follow it with OLED televisions next year, Reg Hardware has learned. The Japanese giant, which currently sells passive 3D monitors to broadcasters, has already begun shipping consumer-friendly models into the Chinese market. Sony’s passive Bravia screens are expected to make their European debut at this September’s IFA technology show in Berlin. While Sony has yet to formally announce plans for a global roll-out of passive panels, its Deputy President of home entertainment products, Noriaki Negishi, confirmed to Reg Hardware in Tokyo that Sony will be aggressively promoting the technology within a year. “Our engineers don’t really like [passive],” Negishi said, “because it has half the resolution of active shutter 3D, but consumers appreciate the convenience of passive.” Sony’s stance reflects a growing pragmatism and the understanding that expensive active shutter 3D technology isn’t driving TV sales. Last month, Panasonic announced passive 3D TV sets, so Sony’s move leaves Samsung as the only major TV maker exclusively supporting active 3D. The arrival of passive 3D TVs will be accompanied by the introduction of OLED televisions. Sony’s first Organic LED TV was the 11in XEL-1, launched in...

Sony Bravia HX925 Review

Sony Bravia HX925 LED TV Samsung, without a shadow of doubt, took the lead as far as the LED TV market is concerned. But Sony worked hard over the last one year, and we are sure about that because what we are witnessing here is a product that is just brilliant. Well, almost! Look Feel Sony still hasn’t gotten the entire LED experience on track. Not as far as getting the slimness of the TV goes. The Bravia HX92 is 38mm thick, and we are only looking at the panel’s thickness and including the stand in the calculation. In contrast, the Samsung 7000 series LED is 30mm thick. Not that it really makes a huge difference, but clearly we know who has the bragging rights.   There are no ports on the side, since there is not enough width at all. But you will get 4 HDMI and 2 USB on the rear panel. The Bravia HX925 has a wide range of web functionality, and that is helped immensely along the way with the integrated Wi-Fi feature. However, the real visual punch is at the front. When the TV is turned off, the display blends in very well with the bezel, and while it is not that, it almost looks like an edge-to-edge display. Switch it on, and the SONY logo under the display is illuminated in a pale white colour. Compare this with the looks of the Samsung 7000 Series LED, and it has a very slim bezel itself, which gives it an edge-to-edgeaura even when switched on. The build quality is absolutely faultless, at first look. However,...

Sony 3D TV – Bravia XBR46HX929

Sony 3D TV – Bravia XBR46HX929

Sony XBR 3D TV 46 Inch Having done a “range” review of the Sony XBR series, it was about time we sent out one of our roving viewers to have a look at one the range in anger! And so it was that we came to take an in depth look at the Sony 3D TV – Bravia XBR46HX929 – and it didn’t disappoint! Sony 3D TV – Bravia XBR I think the first thing to talk about is some people felt the blacks on the previous XBR9 range were a little disappointing. I’ve heard comments like “you can see the edge lighting shining down thru the blacks”, “you can sometimes see light “splodges” in black areas”. I can’t say that I had noticed this and have watched a lot of Sony 3D TV sets. However, if there was an issue it has certainly been cured with the 929s. The set does have the now famous local dimming feature and this is a feature most advanced sets now contain. If you’re not aware of it, it simplistic terms, this is where the set actually turns the screen lighting off in black areas. As I’m sure you can imagine this leads to extremely deep blacks and stunning contrasts. All this goes to make a picture that looks amazing. Of course to allow local dimming the set has to be “full-array” LED (which means the LED lighting extends across the full area of the screen rather than just around the edge). This also helps produce an image brightness just not found on non full-array sets. Sony 3D TV – But Not...
Sony LED TV – Bravia KDL32EX720 3D

Sony LED TV – Bravia KDL32EX720 3D

Sony LED TV 32 Inch If we have a failing here at Planet LED TV it is that we like our TV sets BIG, but today we’re looking at a sneaky smaller Sony LED TV! The “sizeism” is a fair criticism and we’ll take it on the chin. However, in the interests of covering the full 3D LED TV market, occassionally (just occassionally) we really should offer a fairer reflection of the wider market and review a small set. Perhaps a TV for the bedroom, spare room or kids room. And so it is we arrive at a new review of the Sony Bravia KDL32EX720 3D LED TV  one of the best small(er) sets on the market. This little beauty is 32 inches of dynamite. Yes, this wonderful Sony LED TV is full 3D as well as full 1080p HD capabilities. It is without doubt one of the best pictures I have seen on a smaller set and the 3D is also wonderfully good. The panel resolution is 1920 x 1080 and the LED backlighting provides the user with energy efficiency and a slim design. And, as with all Sony LED TV sets, the contrast provided is stunning. Deep blacks and vivid colors and that small screen crispness ofeers a superb viewing experience in a smaller space. The Sony LED TV – KDL32EX720 – Internet Ready TV And, what makes this such a good deal for the kids room or college is that this Sony LED TV boasts Internet TV which offers an almost infinite choice when it comes to media and other internet capabilities. Sony’s X-Reality Engine combined...
