Sony Bravia Gets New 40, 46 and 52-Inch Displays

by Paul Strauss

Sony Japan has just announced a number of new flat-panel LCD televisions in the BRAVIA line. The W5000, V5000 and V3000 series come in sizes ranging from 40 to 52 inches.

Sony BRAVIA W5000 Series Displays

All of the models feature a full HD 1080p 10-bit LCD panel. However, the W5000 series gets a wide gamut backlight, x.v.YCC color, and MotionFlow (120Hz refresh rate to reduce motion blur.) In addition, the W series offers dual analog and digital tuners, while the V series only has a single tuner. The only other significant difference is the number of HDMI ports. The W5000 and V5000 sets have three HDMI inputs, while the V3000 sets have only two.

Model Size Resolution Street Date Price
KDL-52W5000 52-inch 1,920 × 1,080 Nov. 10th 550,000 Yen ($4733 USD)
KDL-46W5000 46-inch 450,000 Yen ($3873 USD)
KDL-40W5000 40-inch 330,000 Yen ($2840 USD)
KDL-52V5000 52-inch Sept. 20th 510,000 Yen ($4389 USD)
KDL-46V5000 46-inch 410,000 Yen ($3528 USD)
KDL-40V5000 40-inch 290,000 Yen ($2496 USD)
KDL-46V3000 46-inch 400,000 Yen ($3442 USD)
KDL-40V3000 40-inch 270,000 Yen ($2324 USD)

From what I can tell, the cosmetics for all the models are identical. There’s no word on release dates outside of Japan yet, but in all likelihood, we’ll see these displays worldwide in 2008.
