Gift Tip 36: Sony BRAVIA KDL-52XBR9 HDTV

The Sony BRAVIA XBR Series KDL-52XBR9 brings superior power and performance to the HDTV experience. Watch your favorite shows and surf the web on the crystal-clear 52-inch screen. Enhanced Internet connectivity with built-in BRAVIA Internet Video capabilities that let you enjoy thousands of on-demand movies, TV shows, music and more. Personalize your entertainment experience by selecting and positioning widgets containing the latest news, weather, sports and more directly on your TV screen.

The Sony BRAVIA XBR Series KDL-52XBR9 allows you to take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc players and the Sony Playstation 3 entertainment systems that can deliver 1080p content with the help of 16:9 Full HD 1080p resolution screen (1920x1080). Sony provides the highest level of motion detail and clarity by using MotionFlow 240Hz technology. MotionFlow 240Hz technology quadruples the frame rate, resulting in a crisp fluid motion and a natural, realistic viewing experience.

The Sony BRAVIA XBR Series KDL-52 XBR9 provides access to Internet Video. Use your in-home broadband connection and the BRAVIA HDTV remote control to access online content from over 20 providers including Amazon Video On Demand, YouTube, Sports Illustrated, Sony Pictures, Sony Music, Slacker, and Epicurious.com.

The Sony BRAVIA XBR Series KDL-52 XBR9’s BRAVIA 3 technology uses a collection of algorithms to significantly reduce noise, enhance overall image detail, and optimize contrast so every scene produces sharp, vibrant, life-like images. This model also provides Live Color Creation technology to achieve wide color reproduction for more natural and vibrant colors. USB inputs allow you to connect your camera, USB-enabled MP3 player, or USB storage device directly to the Sony BRAVIA XBR Series KDL-52 XBR9 to view photos on the big screen or control your latest music playlist. An innovated room-lighting sensor will dim or turn off the screen while leaving sound on to conserve energy while a timer can be set that automatically turns off the TV after a set period of inactivity.

The Sony BRAVIA XBR Series KDL-52 XBR9 offers extensive interactive capability. Internet TV works great. No more messing with extra boxes or devices to connect your PC to the TV. This TV just works. You can copy an HD movie to your thumb drive, plug it straight in to the TV and it plays. No other TV can beat that. And with direct access to the Internet you can watch so much stuff. There are some disadvantages: expensive; benefits of 240HZ difficult to discern; “dejudder” mode can produce artifacts; some screen uniformity and off-angle issues; dark areas tinged bluer; most free streaming video content not very compelling.

Great Gift For
Those who want use their TV for all purposes in terms of entertainment.

Price and Where to Buy
The Sony BRAVIA XBR Series KDL-52XBR9 is selling for around $2,200 on Amazon.com.
(Watch out for special Sony discounts on bundles)

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
