Hi everyone!

I currently own a sony bravia KDL52xbr3. I love this set and have never had any complaints with picture quality.

However i would like to get a bigger set, 60"+

So my question is with the new lineups, either plasma or lcd, how does my old xbr3 hold up? Are the new sets these days leaps and bounds better? or just marginally better then the xbr3? I could careless about 3D, wouldnt mind having it but could easily continue to live without it.

My current usage for the set is about 35% Sports, 35% PS3 gaming, 20% movies and 10% regular TV.

What are the experts thoughts? Like i said I've loved my xbr3 so i haven't really been keeping up with HDTV technology. Just looking to upgrade size if its worth it.

The answer is the same, just replace the 5 with a 6 (another alternative is the V with the Z).
