Sony KDS-60A2000 SXRD HDTV
Home Theater Mag has a quick review of Sony's next generation SXRD 1080p TV. Right of the bat you notice that this TV comes in a few hundred dollars cheaper then the previous gen and finally has proper 1080p support. I have to say, that will a little fiddling Sony TV's are typically my favorite picture. All the usual features, connections and widgets were onboard and accounted for.
From the article:
The black level is commendably low. I measured it at 0.008
foot-lamberts, which, as far as RPTVs go, is bested only by the last
60-inch SXRD RPTV we reviewed (which was also our Product of the Year
last year). That TV was a little darker (0.007 ft-L at its darkest) and
a little brighter (between 93 and 100 ft-L, depending on the mode,
versus 63 and 83 ft-L here). Of course, that TV was $1,300 more
expensive. Just for comparison, that 0.008 ft-L is better than every
LCD, plasma, and many front projectors we've reviewed.
