The real dinamic ratio is a mystery to me, it is very difficult to have a true disclosure.

Size I increased from 32 to 37, maybe 42.


I think it's impossible to see any difference above 120Hz, unless you have compound eyes :D
I noticed manufacturers tend to hide the static contrast ratio as it is easier to trick consumers with amazing 6-figures dynamic contrast ratio specs, so you might have to search a little bit to find the real specs. If you can find a TV with a 4000:1 or 5000:1 static contrast ratio it will be already very good quality. Actually I even disabled the dynamic contrast ratio option on my TV as it can keep adjusting the contrast during a dark scene and create some kind of contrast oscillation that I find extremely annoying.

OK, is 60HZ really so bad? These Tvs seem really cheap to me. And as they say in Spanish, for the kind of saint -which in this case, is local TV or MOD- to ring the bell once is enough -it is not going to be the prime/most used TV, I have the old CRT for that:

I have the same questions.

I saw a Sony Bravia tv that's reasonably priced at less than 15k. :bravo:

This is the same price for pchome and Carrefour.

It has good specs (for me) and Sony is a really good brand :thumbsup: . BUT, it was released a year ago (Jan 2011) :ponder: and has already been discontinued in some countries. :ohreally: Is it still worth buying? :ponder:

I'd say yes if you are not picky for the last 'technology' and features. (which is marketing you partly pay for)
This TV was most likely sold 25-30 K when it came out.
Local brands will offer cheaper price for a 32 inch thus a Sony for 15K is not a bad deal. It has all the whistles of FB, Youtube integration it seems :thumbsup:

Pros: Excellent contrast and very deep blacks: 3364:1 and 0.06 cd/m²- Accurate colours: average deltaE of 1.5- Matte finish doesn't suffer from reflections- No clouding on the version we tested- Low energy consumption: 94 W

Cons: No motion interpolation- Viewing angles too narrow- Media player doesn't support enough video formats- Panel responsiveness below average

The Sony Bravia CX520 is an entry-level TV with great picture quality and no problems with clouding. All that's missing is support for 3D and motion interpolation.

If one day...

HD & 3D never looked so awesome on this beauty - but 80K is a long way to go...

I am very happy with the previous model I bought for less than half.
HD box & combined with a 1080 res. Apple 3 TV it surely beats anything else in that price range.

Several sites quote it as 50hz only. :eek: Too sincere? Love the prize and features, though.

I don't really see the difference between this and higher? or am I mistaken?

As for motion interpolation, I don't think my previous tvs had that so it shouldnt be a loss eh? :D

Nah, 50 or 60 Hz doesn't make any difference. That is equal to the voltage / frequency here and has given solid images on every TV since euh... Let's say the 70's
Some TV's which have 120 / 240 Hz play less fluid - especially when watching ball sports on TV.
Did you ever noticed EG a tennisbal drawing a white line in a match ? Issues wit older high frequency TV's.
Again, you definitely can't go wrong on a purchase like that.
One minor thing: this LCD screen might produce more heat. Noticeable in winter as a + :thumbsup:
