Thin bezel (1.1") and thin frame (2.9") with 120hz and TruCinema in 46" size AND a matte screen = WIN

I think I just found my next living room display. I'd prefer something LED backlit, but this has everything else I want.

I think they need to make larger screens as well 52in+.

What model is that for? Any idea of pricing? For the 46".

Yes; current model HD camcorders support and record in deep color. As the initial "Z" TV description stated, TV's with deep color will make a great compliment to the sony HD camcorder.

Also, doesn't the PS3 (both games and theoretically blu-ray's) support deep color?

What i'm wondering is if "deep color" and 10-bit displays is synonamous?

MUGEN: do you happen to know the MSRP of the 46W4100? The MSRP of the 46Z4100 seems relatively high compared to the Toshiba XF550 series.
post #193 of 6575
wHY THE HELL SONY IS STUCK ON THOSE SMALL SIZES!?
post #194 of 6575
I can only advise you to be patient and I remind that someone had posted a while ago that from inside info the XBR6/7 is still the top of the line so maybe we will see the bigger sizes

I highly doubt that those prices will translate to that much in the states. I expect the 46W4100 to be around 2499 just like last year and the 46Z4100 to be a few hundred more. LCD prices are suppose to be comming down each year right ? LOL

I only wanted the 46W4100 but I only have 30-31 inches on height to work with. The translated height of the 46Z4100 is 28.9 so it will work due to its thin bezel, hopefully the 46W4100 is not much taller so I can save the money. The only thing it has better that the W line is the thin bezel and xy color.

I'm very excited about the 70" XBR model. 70 inches of prime HD LCD viewing!!! The rules say not to mention prices, but this one is in the 5 digit range...so I won't be getting one for awhile...
post #197 of 6575


Well...I have been waiting to find the dimensions on the 40Z series.....based on the the link....and my math conversion....looks like it is 37.1 inches. I have 36.75" available with cabinet doors open. Wife wont let me remove doors....but could put a slide and a swivel....a maybe turn the tv enough to close those "special" doors.....then pull it back out, straighten the tv back up.......
or.....the new Sony 37xbr6 is a possibility (haven't found the dimensions yet), or even possibly the new Toshiba 40xf550(120hz, 5:5 pull down, etc.), which measures 36.80 or so...........

really wanted 40....but close but yet so far..........(maybe my math was wrong.....ha ha....)

Currently main tv is 52xbr4........which is absolutely fantastic.........really would like to stay with the Sony products....
post #198 of 6575
Well I removed my shelf and now height isnt an issue. I am going to get the 52W4100. It's now time for Sony to give us some info on the things. Perhaps today at their show in Vegas. Give Sony !

I'm looking to buy a new tv guys. What would you do, wait for the new line of Z Bravias, or get an XBR4 now. Thanks all.

Ex - early model Sharp:



But I know there's a-lot of others that like this new look.

On the plus side, it allows that much more screen in a given space. The XBR series won't fit where I'm planning for it, whereas the same screen size in the W and V versions fits just fine.

I like the previous version's appearance a bit more also. The main thing I don't like about the new kind is that weird gap at the bottom.

I think that is a piece of glass, not just a gap. If you look at the high res pics on Sonys site you can see that there is lights on the right hand side like on the XBR's.

what's the point, either way? It serves no purpose but to show off the pedestal and wires. They are sacrificing performance by downsizing the speakers for this fluff. You can hear the same speaker setup on the samsungs... try cranking up the volume and you'll see what i mean.

Sony design has been trying to keep the floating glass effect alive, but after its original introduction in that 50" plasma many years ago, I think it's gone completely downhill.

"Make sure there's some 'float' in it!!" demands sony marketing. "It needs more 'float'!!"

I'm assuming the cables will be hidden from view through the clear slit at the bottom of the bezel....through some channeling in the back of the pedestal?

Sony has to make up for the fortune they paid studios for the exclsuive Blu-Ray support somehow. While I wasn't very fond of the XBR4 glass bezel, it looked somewhat classy and it was much better than these ridiculous looking sets. Who approved this design? For as good as Sony is supposed to be they sure design ugly products. This is as bad as the stupid looking design of the PS3.

As with the XBR4, Sony will most likely have to crush the blacks to make them come anywhere close to the Panasonic levels.
post #209 of 6575
like everyone else i'm still waiting for more info, but here was a little info i found. xbr appears to still be the top of the line and coming out in larger sizes as well
