Sony BRAVIA KDS-55A3000
Released July, 2007
The Pros:Contrast is very good, black is displayed completely black instead of grey. Enough inputs not to need a receiver in most homes. Bright enough for almost any context.
The Cons:Takes a little tweaking to get the picture right. Need to wait a minute for the lamp to warm up when you turn it on.
The BRAVIA KDS-55A3000 is a discontinued, 55" rear-projection HDTV from Sony. It utilizes the same SXRD technology – three separate panels for red, green, and blue – as Sony's more expensive XRB rear-projection units.

Motionflow 120Hz technology uses real-time calculation to double the number of frames in 60Hz content, while x.v.Color technology enables more accurate color reproduction. The Advanced Iris function aims to improve contrast in varied room lighting conditions. Digital Reality Creation, included in the unit's BRAVIA Engine EX video processor, can upconvert 480i content to HD.
