When space is a consideration in choosing an HDTV, such as for an office, kitchen, or bedroom, the Sony KDL-26L5000 26" 720p Bravia L Series LCD HDTV should earn a place on your short list. The Bravia offers vibrant picture quality, a full complement of HD connections, and technological innovations that enhance the viewing experience while saving energy.
The HDTV's 720p resolution delivers crisp images that add to the enjoyment of broadcast and cable programs, Blu-ray movies, and games, as well as your own videos and photos. When watching 24p video sources, such as films, the TV's 24p True Cinema mode enables a direct connection that displays these images at their original 24 fps (frames per second) quality.
Compatibility with Bravia Link modules enables you to expand the capabilities of your HDTV by adding a space-saving DVD player, four additional HDMI connections, and wireless control. Additionally, Bravia Sync offers easy connectivity and control of specified Sony camcorders and digital cameras.
You'll have a wide range of viewing choices, as the Bravia offers multiple connectivity options, including three HDMI inputs, two component inputs, and one PC input.
Being green was never easier: the KDL-26L5000 also features Dynamic Backlight Control for picture optimization and energy savings. In addition, the HDTV boasts Backlight Off mode, Idle TV Standby, and other power-saving modes. It's no surprise that the Bravia exceeds Energy Star Version 3.0 requirements.
