The Sony KDL-52XBR2 is a 52 inch flat screen TV set using LCD technology and is from Sony’s Bravia Series. With the KDL-52XBR2Sony have taken a leap from 1080i to 1080p. it has been elegantly designed using a silver cabinet to give a floating screen effect. The set offers a full display resolution of 1980 X 1080 at 1080p with a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9.
The Bravia series is loaded with features to give the viewer an enriching experience. The white balance controls of the Sony KDL-52XBR2, which are used for exact D6500K calibration, can be controlled from the remote and does not require you to enter the service menu as is the case with most plasma and LCD TV sets. The contrast ratios of the set could be measured in the range of 240:1 which is commendable for any LCD television. The black levels were slightly disappointing and could have been much better. Sometimes the black levels seemed too hazy and oversaturated.
The colors of the Sony KDL-52XBR2 are vibrant but a little oversaturated especially while using the 1080i signal. The viewing angles of the set too were quite satisfying with the use of the antiglare screen. The set is a tad less than 5” in depth which is slightly more but this increase in depth has been seen in all LCD depth. The sound quality provided by the set is amazing. Overall the set is a good buy inspite of the higher price as it gives you a larger screen size.
