Sony BRAVIA KDL-52XBR3 LCD TV

Sony BRAVIA KDL-52XBR3 LCD TV

While it is extremely expensive, Sony's BRAVIA line of LCD TVs has quickly grabbed the number one share of the LCD market. Its newest offering, the Sony BRAVIA KDL-52XBR3 ($6800; Nov.) looks to be their best one yet. Offering full 1080p resolution, the 52XBR3 also features a 7000:1 contrast ratio, the BRAVIA Engine Pro full digital high-definition video processing system, three HDMI inputs, two component video inputs, and a built-in ATSC tuner. It's the best of the best.

  • Panasonic 103-inch HD Plasma Display

    Panasonic's TH-103PF9UK ($70,000) is the world's largest high definition plasma display. As if you needed to read further after that fact, the super-sized display offers 103-inches of screen space (equivalent in size to four 50-inch Panasonic plasma displays) and is native 1080p with a full HD pixel resolution of 1,920 horizontal x 1,080 vertical. It may be designed for corporate use, but that won't stop you from hanging one in the den (and probably then losing your wife). Note though that it requires professional installation due to its weight and size.

    If you're cramped on room in your tiny apartment or dorm room, check out the Oppo LT-2007 ($600).
