Sony is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics giant and are behind some of the leading televisions in the market.
Sony manufactures some of the best Smart TVs available today, in sizes ranging from 40 inches to 70 inches. However, unlike some of their competitors, Sony doesn't enter the plasma market anymore and limit themselves to LED backlit LCD televisions. Their LED smartTVs are generally either dynamic edge-lit panels or direct-lit panels with local dimming.
Sony also implements a range of proprietary technologies like X-Reality Pro Engine to boost picture contrast and detail. Sony motionflow XR depicts the high speed refresh rate and response time of the television making the fastest action scenes with utmost clarity.
Sony's XBR line of televisions are what you need to look for if you're looking for the latest and best of features like Ultra High Definition resolution of 4K (3840 x 2160) which gives you the highest res video you've ever seen. Whether this feature is worth the fortune you pay for it or not, is your call, because as yet content is typically in 720p or 1080i/p.
Some of Sony's smartTVs also take the sound dynamics to a new level with 65W front facing speakers that are said to simulate a 5.1 channel surround sound and deliver amazing audio quality that very neatly complement the vivid picture.
Coming to the features that make them smart, Sony Smart TVs connect to your home network through an in-built wi-fi obviating the hassle of cables. Browsing the internet is facilitated by the Opera browser, so you can check mail, search websites etcetera as easily as on a computer.
The internet sweets that Sony provide are in keeping with the competition today. Your smartTV will be able to access and stream content from Youtube, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Pandora and the rest. Like any other Smart TV, Sony too gives you the gratification of Skype conferencing on a huge screen, but not all of them come with a camera so you might have to purchase that separately.
Some of the other conveniences you get are the ability to operate your Sony SmartTV from your Sony Smartphone instead of the remote, 3D with shutter glasses and the Automatic Intelligence feature that goes into power conservation mode when it detects nobodyÃ¢??s watching.
The best Sony SmartTVs generally tend to be slightly higher priced than other brands more due to its brand name than better quality.
