SONY – R450A SERIES 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV

FEATURES:
• Brilliant Full HD 1080p picture quality
• Direct LED for a bright picture and slim design
• Smooth movement with Motion flow XR 120
• 2 full-range 8W speakers
• 2 HDMI ports

STANDARD REMOTE: RM-YD092

RATING: 4.7/5

Welcome to the review of Sony’s R450A Series 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV. This Sony R450A series presents your favorite TV shows, movies and more in crystal-clear high-definition. Two full-range 8W speakers produce robust, dynamic sound to add to your home entertainment experience.
The TV’s sleek finish and mirrored front bar create a nice aesthetic once mounted. Though not exceptionally thin by today’s standards, the R450A does well for a backlit LED TV. Like many entry-level models, this series does not rotate on its stand. The thin plastic stand itself seems a bit flimsy, and the fact that it is attached to the TV by only two screws doesn’t exactly scream quality.

The remote control for the R450A series is part number RM-YD092.

One especially notable feature is the TV’s use of Sony’s MotionFlow Technology for frame interpolation and image blur reduction to lower jittering, and in theory, make the 60Hz refresh rate seem more like 120 Hz.
There are many mixed reviews for this model. If you are in the market for buying a new TV, always check out the resources for the best quality and the right TV to fit your needs.

PROS:
• Brilliant colors
• Light weight, attractive design
• Packed with features
• Renders sports and fast-paced video well

CONS:
• Extremely narrow viewing axis
• Unnecessarily confusing options
• Fixed Motion smoothing feature creates soap opera effect on films

Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi

FEATURES:

• Built-in super WiFi
• Built-in Side-view app. for browsing or streaming
• I/P noise reduction
• Full HD 1080p
• Upscale DVDs to near 1080p
• Control Blu-ray with mobile device
• Built-in web browser
• Front USB port

REMOTE: RMT-B119A

RATING:
4 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi. The Sony BDP-3100 is very compact, lightweight and stylish and fits in small spaces. The set-up is easy and quick. The menu’s layout, although adequate, could use some improvement as noted by several users. The feature that up-scales DVDs to near 1080p will certainly enhance the picture quality of all your DVDs and enable you to watch your movies with vibrant, bright colors and crystal clear images. The I/P noise reduction also helps to deliver the best picture quality by eliminating playback noise. Not only does this Blu-ray disc player deliver top-notch picture quality, it offers much in the way of connectivity to the internet via the built-in WiFi and side-view app. Stream your music, and videos or watch movies from Sony’s Entertainment network, offering services like Netflix, YouTube, HuluPlus, Pandora, Amazon Instant Video, and more. You will also have access to apps exclusively designed for your TV. One disappointment noted by users about the apps is that they are in a fixed order and the order of apps cannot be adjusted, therefore, if you want the 40th app., for example, you have no choice but to scroll down until you reach it.

The part number for the remote that comes with this disc player is RMT-B119A. The remote control has buttons for Netflix and the Sony Entertainment Network, making these services as easy as a clicking of a button.

Some users have had problems with the screen going black, with no sound, and doing so off and on while watching movies. To remedy this problem the “deep color” setting must be turned off. Once this setting is turned off the problem is resolved. The audio capabilities of this Blu-ray function well but one user noted that to get the full HD master audio sound that this Blu-ray is capable of delivering, the “audio mix” setting must be turned off. Adjustments certainly need to be made, but this Blu-ray disc player can really pack a punch when all the settings are in sync and for the bargain price, you can’t go wrong.

PROS:
• Stunning picture quality
• Built-in WiFi
• Upscales DVDs to near 1080p resolution
• Inexpensive

CONS:
• Needs tweaking of settings
• No control of the order of apps
• User interface could use improvement

REMOTE: RMT-B119A

RATING:
4.2 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi. This Blu-ray disc player is loaded with lots of features for its low, affordable price. Its streamlined appearance is contemporary and compact and will fit nicely with your TV and other home theater equipment. The built-in super WiFi will give you access to Sony’s entertainment network which includes Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, Hulu Plus and much more. With 2 USB ports, you can also connect your thumb drive to one of the 2 ports and listen to your music, and view videos and pictures on your TV screen. Yet another option for browsing or streaming your music and videos is the built-in TV side-view where you can browse the internet using your compatible phone or tablet. Given all these options, you will certainly be connected online and also be able to socialize with your friends on Facebook and Twitter, even while watching TV.

The part number for the remote that comes with this Blu-ray disc player is RMT-B119A.

The Blu-ray player loads quickly so you’ll be watching your movie in seconds. Your 2D movies will automatically be converted to 3D where you can fully engage yourself in a theater-like experience. This player also up-scales your movies to near 1080p high definition. The I/P noise reduction is designed to eliminate playback noise so that you can experience better picture quality. You will be viewing your movies, sporting events and games with vibrant color, and crystal clear images.

A user commented that last year many users complained about the bad functionality of text input on last year’s player. This year’s player is equipped with a full QWERTY style onscreen keyboard, making it much easier to use. A feature missing from this player is that it has no analog or digital optical outputs, not even for audio, so any equipment you have that is not HDMI compatible will not function. No HDMI cable is included with this player, therefore you must purchase one separately. Another noted complaint is that the apps take a long time to work and the search function also takes a long time to post results. Given the low price, however, for all that this Blu-ray disc player delivers, it is definitely worth purchasing.

PROS:
• Inexpensive
• Built-in super WiFi
• Compact, modern design
• High resolution picture quality

CONS:
• No analog or digital optical outputs
• Apps are slow to work

Westinghouse T7HW 1080p 120hz LED HDTV Series

FEATURES:

• 1080p resolution
• 120hz refresh rate
• Sleek, modern design
• 100,000:1 Dynamic contrast ratio
• 2 HDMI inputs
• PC connectivity

REMOTE: RMT-22

RATING: 4.2 out of 5 stars

Welcome to a review of the Westinghouse T7HW LED HDTV Series. If you are looking for an affordable, basic, good quality HDTV to purchase, this is the series for you. What it lacks for in extra features, it makes up for in picture quality. The contemporary, slim design fits well in any space and is easily mountable on a wall due to its light weight. Some buyers have remarked that the TV has no buttons on the front except for the on/off switch meaning the remote control is necessary to watch TV and change channels or set preferences. A vast majority of flat panel TVs in this day and age however are made the same way. The set-up is easy and the 2 HDMI inputs allow for hooking up of several devices including gaming consoles, sound systems, and a computer. There are also headphone jacks for your convenience. With wide horizontal and vertical angles, you can enjoy remarkable picture quality from any area in the room. This series offers stunning images and brilliant, vivid colors with lots of details. For the low price, what more could you want?

The remote that comes with this series is the RMT-22. It is a standard, basic model and easy to use.

The sound quality for this series, as with many slim, flat screen TVs, is ordinary. Some users have commented that a muffled/hollow sound comes out from the speakers. Others are content with the sound and have no issues. If you are particular about high-end sound and want a “surround sound” type of experience when you watch movies or play games, there is a simple solution. By attaching a sound bar, good quality speakers or a sound system to the TV, you will be able to achieve superior sound quality and enjoy your new TV.

PROS:
• Low, bargain price
• Crystal clear images and brilliant, vibrant colors
• Wide vertical and horizontal angles
• Easy set-up

CONS:
• Average sound quality
• No internet connectivity
