Cheap Sony 3D TV review - UPDATED AGAIN! 7/19/12
Posted on: 07/20/2012 12:23 AM

TV: The TV itself is great (after all, it is a Sony). The build quality is very high, it looks snazzy and is pretty dang slim. The screen, viewing normal 2D content, looks great and preforms well. We tried it with a normal cable box, a PS3, and a Mac Mini. It works great for every application! It supports full 1080p with 240 Hz refresh rate. Images are clear and crisp, and colors are bright and deep. The screen is 24", so its not too big for use with a computer, and not too small to where you wonder why you bought it. You can be sitting 1 foot away or 6 feet away and it looks great. Your optimal viewing distance is around 3 and a half feet. I had a "duh" moment when I first setup the TV. I plugged it into the PS3 while the PS3 was already on, so the PS3 didn't recognize the 3D monitor and wouldn't play any content in 3D. I spent about an hour very upset, then turned the PS3 off while I ate dinner. When I turned it back on later, viola - 3D worked! All this is said to say this: plug in the TV first! The most annoying part of the TV is that the controls are on the back, with no markings on the front to show you which button you are pushing. And it doesn't include a remote. When you push a button, an on-screen display comes up to show you where the buttons are. Thats great, but if you push the wrong button in the first place it doesn't make much sense. The TV has 2 HDMI inputs, RCA style component in, and a headphone output all located on the right side. There is no sound output besides the headphone out, which is a little annoying. Speaking of sound…
