Sony has been very aggressive with their pricing of late and this is very evident in their notebook line up. Their new 'E' series notebooks are very competitively priced and have really good specifications that will give even Dell a run for its money. Coming to their television line up, the 2010 Bravia models have already flooded the market and we can already catch some of the commercials on TV tempting people to rush out to malls and hand over their plastic.
The new NX series of television are a stunner, especially the monolithic design flagship model. Today, however, we have a tail-ender from the line up, the KLV-40NX500, which is a 40-incher full HD TV. It comes with Sony's proprietary features like Live Color, Bravia engine 3, Intelligent Picture Plus among others. What is great is the pricing, which isn't as exorbitant as one might imagine, given it's their new line up and is at par with Samsungs 5 series LCD TVs. So let's see if the NX500 has what it takes to compete with Samsung's ever so popular 5 series.
The TV comes with a standard bundle, a power cord, remote and an operation manual. The remote is quite unusual actually and it's supposed to be kept upside down. The main area with all the buttons has a concave surface to protect the buttons. The remote is quite large and even someone with big hands will find some buttons hard to reach.
