Sony goes big with Bravia Do you ever find yourself wondering how you plan on decorating an entire wall in your house with one single monstrous object? Have you ever wondered what you'd do with all that left over money just accumulating in a trust fund with nothing to spend it on? Do you only feel comfortable watching your favorite program if you're seated 35 feet away from the screen? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, Sony has got a solution for you.
Sony has just announced the release of its biggest Bravia HDTV to date. The KD-70XBR3 70" LCD flat panel television is the newest to roll off the Sony floor. Advertised as one of the first HDTVs to impliment the xvYCC, the newest color standard capable of transmitting 1.8 times more colors than standard RGB, dubbed x.v.Color by Sony, by way of HDMI 1.3. Some of the features include 120Hz "MotionFlow" anti-blurring technology, coupled with 10-bit video processing and Triluminos LED backlight. This set features 7000:1 dynamic contrast ratio with DRC-MFv2.5. (Digital Reality Creation Multifunction v2.5 is a standard developed to ensure that picture will not degrade depending on what resolution it is set at, as well as dynamically convert standard definition pictures into high definition.)

Set to ship in February for a scant $33,000, expect to see these fly off the shelves. If you're one of the select few that aren't put off by the price tag, Sony will even allow you to preorder one right now through the Sony Store.

I walk around looking for a new TV, better than my Hitachi Ultravision 51" Rear projection from 2001/2002 with no luck. Sure mine might be big and I can't hang it on a wall, but the quality of these other TV's is garbage. Maybe it's the stores not showing the true performances of these TV's But come on instead of pushing out bigger, work on the quality of the TV.

Just give it a couple of years and the the price will drop due to newer technology, It always does.
