Okay, so I’ve been ready for the digital TV transition ever since I’ve purchased by Bravia TV LCD TV a few years back but for those thinking of buying an HDTV instead of a TV with a digital tuner then it doesn’t hurt to look at Sony’s Bravia TVs. Yes, according to Consumer Electronics Association, you can get a DTV ready TV for as low as $200 but add around $200 more and you can get a spanking new Bravia TV and you’ll be more than ready to meet the DTV transition.
Of course for $400, expect to just get around 19 inch of LCD TV from Sony but I assure you that you’ll get more than DVD standard signals with HDTV and once you go High Def, you never want to turn back. So throw away your analog to digital TV converter voucher and just splurge on an HDTV.
As if having a 46 inch LCD TV isn’t enough, Sony feels the need to burn a hole in movie enthusiasts’ pockets and gave us simple folks another reason to envy the rich: The Sony Bravia VPL-VW80 Full HD Projector.
Yep, you can now enjoy your favorite movie in your own home theater in Full 1080p HD. Yet another reason not to watch a movie and just wait for it on DVD or a much better choice: Blu-ray.
The Sony Bravia VPL -VW80 SXRD projector also features ultra smooth action using high frame rate SXRD with Motionflow Dark frame insertion and Bravia Engine 2 signal processing. All I can say is; if Santa’s real, I want this as my Christmas gift.

Like the Bravia W4000 series, the Bravia E4000 series has the picture frame mode (See my most on the Bravia W4000). You can even choose from six default masterpieces, from landscapes to Van Gogh.
