Sony KDL-70XBR7 70
Note: As far as I can tell the XBR 7 and the XBR 8 external design is similar if not identical.

Sony‘s KDL-70XBR7 is the largest LCD TV you can buy from Sony. The KDL-70XBR7 has everything the XBR 8 series has except for the TRILUMINOS RGB LED backlight, which is a big deal since that provides an enhanced color gamut as well as local dimming capabilities (Advanced Contrast Enhancer – ACE) to improve contrast ratio to insane levels.

But if big is your thing, then the KDL-70XBR7 is it, there is nothing bigger. Of course, the 70″ monster also has ACE to improve contrast but is limited to a wide color gamut CCFL (WCG-CCFL).

The KDL-70XBR7 incorporates the most advanced video processing engine: BRAVIA Engine 2 PRO, just like the XBR 8 series. This differentiates it from the smaller 40″ KDL-XBR7 that uses the BRAVIA Engine 2 EX. For for these later in the fall.
