yeah but it looks like it now displays 1080p instead of just accepting it and scaling it down

but other new features just look to be the addition of DLNA compliance which i found to be kinda buggy on my ps3 but a nice addition. as well as the Digital Media Port which my gf would love for her ipod.

I love the design of the 2008 line. It seems as though we are hitting the limit of WCG-CCFL LCD's though. If picture quality on these new sets is just a little better than their 2007 counterparts, I will happily purchase one (probably the KDL-37XBR6). Im curious to see the 3D XMB interface, and hopefully the panels won't have the manufacturing issues that the 2007's did.

Looks like that Sony is going to kill the current panels. That makes my S3000 worthless.

Why is that? Whenever a consumer purchases any technology it is always obsolete as soon as they turn it on. But what does obsolete matter as long as you are happy with the performance of the tv? You obviously didn't buy the S3000 because you wanted the latest and greatest, and if you weren't happy with it from the start then you should have returned it.

Man I was hoping the new Sony's would make it by March 22 2008. I've got a CC service exchange credit sitting waiting to apply it to a new set but it has to be used by that date

Maybe they will get here a little early They sure look nice.

LG

Toshiba was a blurb from their press conference that most of the blogs completely omitted. No idea which one it was. The info might have come from interviews with Reps after the show. It was mentioned for their Fall line along with the Cell video processing info. Obviously Samsung is going to do something with their 81 series, though they didn't announce it at CES.

I have a feeling we will hear more from Sony to the tune of 40, 46, & 52 inch XBR6's. How will they differentiate from the Z series? Probably LED backlighting, especially considering how much Sony loves to be on the cutting edge.
post #69 of 6575
doesn't samsung 81 series have a 57"? given the loss of sxrd i would hope we'd at least get something in that range from sony this year
post #70 of 6575
I am extremely interested in seeing the pricing on these TVs! I am REALLY hoping for at least one of the following models to be under $1,400: 40" V-Series, 37" XBR6-Series, or the 37" N series...not as excited about the N series due to the lack of 1080p, but if that TVs price is right, it'll have to do.

that makes alot of sense. they probally will come out with the xbr6's with LED's by summer. which is when they usually have the xbrs.
post #72 of 6575
Anyone have more info on the 2008 Sonys?
post #73 of 6575
Oh, so far LED backlighting is only on the larger sets, huh? I guess I have to wait some more...
post #74 of 6575
interested if anyone has seen specific overall length, width and thickness figures for the kdl-46z4100 and kdl-40z4100??? thanks...
post #75 of 6575
Thread Starter 
we know nothing more than what is in the first page in this thread. we will know the tv's specs once they are added to sonystyle or added to the sony support site where we could download the tv's spec sheets or operatiing manuals.

ps. NO LED's in any these tv's

Sometimes it seems like OLED displays will be upon us before LED backlit lcds become mainstream. At least 1080p is becoming the norm now for 32+. I hate that 1366x768 bull.

I would put LED technology at the forefront starting 2009 and 2010. OLED is still a ways off in my opinion, probably 2012/2013. To get OLED where we are now, you could assume this:

2008 - 11" = $2500
2009 - 19" = $2500
2010 - 26" = $2500
2011 - 32" = $2500
2012 - 40" = $2500.

Yeah for Sony, but didnt Samsung release a 31" OLED long with a 14"? Or was it someone else. I dont think OLED is that far off, maybe a year or two to wrap up the technology but then we will have a few years before it is truly to the point we are at with LCDs. And I think that next years CES will warrant a Sony Trump card for OLED, if Sammy does the 31" this year then Sony will produce a 35"-37" next year, atleast in prototype phase

Im just saying that because Sony is the only company who is selling these tv's. Im sure they have some larger prototypes too, maybe just something they didn't want to show right away. Anyway, even if a 32" OLED comes onto the market next year, I don't see it being anywhere near $2,500 for years. Sony and Samsung will wait until some other companies throw their products into the mix before the price wars start.

Ditto,

What happened to the understated Sony industrial design of the past. The XBR6 Series design looks like it was inspired by a Japanese robot anime, with that it's glass insert, and the slightly angled inner sides. These sets should be the cream of the crop, but they just don't look it.

C'mon Sony, add some nice details and materials like anodized aluminum, etc., and rid us of this plastic looking toy for a TV. In my opinion, it is a step down in the design department from previous gen Sony sets.

Rather dissapointing.
post #85 of 6575
Whatwould beyour estimate on prices, comparedto where the XBR4 series is RIGHT now. I plan to buy a 52" in a few months, but the XBR4 52" is almostout of my range as it is. I am just so worried about jutter and tbe, etc on current TV's, so wasthinking of waiting for 2008 models, but it seems like they will basically have the same quality in this regard?

Sorry about the lack of the space bar in the previous post, lol. (Using someone elses small keyboard) I also had another question. Do you feel the 8ms vs the 4ms is important?

No. Motion blur is not entirely connected to a lower pixel response time, it just happens to be easier to explain it that way to the consumer. I read something a while back about how LCD's blur because of how the image scans on the screen and how our brain processes it, not because the pixels are lagging behind the action or anything like that.

Heres the article: Motion Blur

Did I read past CableCard support? Or is it under a new name-of-the-day (i.e. tru2way)
post #89 of 6575
Shame about the looks, I like the way the KDL-46XBR4 looked.
post #90 of 6575
ughhhh...

The specs look alright... but the design on those things is bad!

I'l just wait for the xbr4/5 to come down in price when these are launched, the difference will probably be around 1000 between the 4 and the 6, 40" n 46" and I'm still not convinced the small upgrade is worht the $1000 bucks.

I might be wrong though... time will tell...

however, the design is still cheap-looking as hell.
