Enjoy an enhanced picture on
Full HD 1080p
Full HD 1080p is the ultimate HD format, providing more than 2 million pixels for a smooth high resolution image. The number 1080 relates the number of horizontal lines of pixels on the screen. The more lines that a screen contains, the better the picture quality. To compare, HD-Ready sets have 768 while standard definition (SD) sets have just 576 lines. The letter p refers to its progressive or non-interlaced picture-scanning process where all the lines of the image are refreshed by every vertical scan. 1080p is the maximum resolution defined for HDTV use and this format is used for Blu-ray Disc™ ® and PLAYSTATION®3
Subscription-free, built-in Freeview
To add to your viewing choice, the set has a built-in Freeview TV tuner so you have instant access to a huge range of free-to-air and digital TV and radio channels. Channels are free so you won't have any subscription fees or contracts to sign. Because it's all built-in you won't need a set-top box or satellite dish either. Simply plug in your external TV aerial and access all your channels using just one remote control.
Experience advanced picture quality
Its BRAVIA ENGINE 2 processor delivers astonishingly clear and life-like colours with the most natural tones possible. Black levels are the deepest and most detailed, with a brightness and contrast that's crisp and confident. Reds and greens are notoriously difficult to reproduce on an LCD screen. Live Colour intelligently boosts these colours making sure the images you see on your BRAVIA TV are bright, vibrant and realistic. Connect a compatible camera or camcorder and the TV will automatically switch to optimum settings for displaying photos and reproduce their full, realistic texture and colour.
Connect all your favourite
Optimise the picture for your surroundings
This BRAVIA model features an innovative power-saving ambient Light Sensor which detects the ambient light in a room and adapts the picture's brightness accordingly. As well as making viewing more comfortable, when the set's light sensor is activated, power consumption can be reduced by a further 30%. This is one of a group of energy-saving Eco-Settings which also includes Power Saving, Idle TV Standby and PC Power Management.
Connect to your favourite technology
With its USB Media Player, you can connect a wide range of USB devices straight to your BRAVIA TV. From mp3 players to cameras, laptops to camcorders - even content from your USB memory stick, just plug in to enjoy your favourite multimedia files on screen. It's easy to enhance your BRAVIA experience by connecting other HD products such as a Blu-ray Disc™ player or PlayStation®3 thanks to four High Definition Multimedia Interface™ (HDMI™) inputs. These connections are specifically designed to carry high quality digital video and audio content. BRAVIA Sync lets you control other Sony devices you've connected using your BRAVIA TV remote control.
Enjoy authentic cinematic experiences
Cinema Mode is a new picture setting developed in collaboration between BRAVIA and Sony Pictures Entertainment. It allows films to be viewed as close to the original director's cut as possible. Cinema Mode precisely reproduces details such as natural skin tone, lighting, colour and contrast. In 24p True Cinema mode films can be watched as the director intended for the big screen - at 24 frames per second. Standard TVs use 25 frames a second which means they play back 'faster' than they do in the cinema.
Create atmospheric settings
Whether you're watching the big match, the latest movie or playing a high impact game, Scene Select allows you to choose from a list of options to automatically adjust the sound and picture settings to complement the on screen action. If, for any reason, you're struggling to hear what someone's saying, you can activate Clear Voice. Clear Voice automatically boosts voice frequency bands and enhances poor voice quality to clear, crisp, louder dialogue.

Bought this telly just over 2 months ago as a replacement for a CRT Sony Trinitron but i also own a 32" 1080p Panasonic Viera.
A lot has been written already about the Bravia so i won't repeat those comments already made but will say that this screen's 5-star across-the-board rating is well and truly valid.
1080p performance is as good as it should be (ie - superb) and surpasses the 2 year old Viera by some margin. Things have moved on a bit in since 2008 - motion is handled better, backlighting is far less intrusive and blacks are much deeper. Perhaps the Viera's inbuilt speakers are a tad superior though.
One major improvement is the way in which this screen handles SD pictures. Gone are the sharp edges and blockiness of older (far more expensive) LCD screens. Like many i've clung to the belief that CRT TVs are the way to watch SD but, upon the death of my old Trinitron, have been blown away by the versatility of the new Bravia. Upscaling really does work here and i do believe SD on HD screens may have finally come of age.
