    Summary: The Sony KV-36XBR450 WEGA XBR Hi-Scan TV is an HDTV-ready TV with 2 HD-compatible component video inputs. However, it features 4:3 aspect ratio, which is better suited for standard definition broadcasts than for HDTV. The TV has ... read more

    Pros: Great Picture, Great Looks, Easy to use. All the bells and whistles.
    Cons: None

    Summary: The Sony KV-36XBR450 is second to none. Out of the box the TV was awesome. The colors are true to life with no red push that the Panasonic Tau is plagged by. When you combine this set with a progressive DVD it will truly blow you away with clarity ... read more

    Pros: Stunning DVD movie picture quality, great picture with 'normal' cable, easy-to-use remote and menu
    Cons: none yet except I want to rent many more DVDs!!

    Summary: I was looking to buy a 36" direct view and had narrowed my search to the Panasonic and Toshiba. I did not think the Sony Hi-Scan had as good a picture as either of these. A friend just bought an XBR450 for about $2400 and I was impressed with the picture ... read more
