HD Nation Focuses on Viewers’ Questions This Week

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

This week on HD Nation, the show releases a shorter segment that focuses on addressing viewers’ questions. Some of the questions talk about helping with audio outputs and connection problems. Their biggest segment talk about the new spec called Infinite Contrast Ratio. This has been a recurring feature in many of the modern HDTVs. The hosts make it very well known anything that says infinite contrast ratio is essentially rubbish. The contrast is designed to tell you how dark the black levels can be when compared to white. They also recommend taking a look at the static contrast ratio over the dynamic contrast ratio because the static is more accurate to what you will see. Some of the best HDTVs on the market actually only sport between a 4000 and 6000:1 contrast ratio. In another segment, the hosts also announce some of their favorite black Friday HDTV sales for HDTVs between 46” and 50”.

Recently, the writers from Nikkei Electronics wanted to see how this TV works. To do this they had to dismantle it. Upon opening it, their first impression was that it was very messy. By this they mean that there were a lot of cables that looked like spaghetti. They noticed that the TV comprised of three mother boards. Two were circuit boards, while the third was the power supply board. They compared it to similar Sony TV and after a thorough examination were happy with what they saw. Their only recommendation to Sony is to clean up the wires and make it look more organized.
