The Sony KDL-19S5720 is not just a 19-inch HD Ready LCD portable television. It is also quite a handy thing to have around the house – its size makes it effortless to pick up and move around the house if someone else is watching something on the main TV that you do not want to watch; the detachable handle is a nice touch. To give you a more complete overview of what you'll be getting if you plan on purchasing this product (just in time for the holidays!), Here are some of the highlights in detail:
The Sony KDL-19S5720 is also very stylish. The colors are subtle and its sleek arched design looks magnificent. Conveniently, it boasts a great looking illuminated digital clock that displays on the bottom of the TV so you never lose track of the time. It can also even be mounted up on a wall to save space, not that it takes up much on its own!
As for the features, the Sony KDL-19S5720 lets you do more than simply watch TV. You can hook it up to your digital camera or use a USB thumb drive to see your pics in dazzling detail on the photo viewer. With the two HDMI (TM) inputs, you can also connect an MP3 player to play music or an HD console to watch movies or play games. In addition, with the integrated standard definition digital terrestrial tuner, Freeview makes it easy to enjoy up to 48 free digital channels and with no subscription.
Another nice feature on the Sony KDL-19S5720 is the Scene Select which, with the simple touch of a button on the remote, lets you change the picture and sound settings to best suit what you're watching in order to evoke the most dynamic and true-to-life effects.
The technical specs of this Sony KDL-19S5720 product are impressive as well. For a television set of this size it certainly has an amazing picture quality. The Bravia Engine and a Dynamic Contrast ratio of approximately 8,000: 1 deliver awesome detail and image depth. The design is a little less than the larger Sony models, but it is tough to identify any deterioration as the higher contrast ratio, etc, would make no obvious difference on a nineteen inch Television.
Live Color picks out the most insidious shades and lifelike colors while 24p True Cinema makes sure you may enjoy a true film experience – just as, it is certain, the picture's director intended.
Dolby Digital sound and the 2x5W speakers allow you to hear all the sounds in crisp, clear audio quality.
Usability on the Sony KDL-19S5720 is pretty reasonable. The on screen screen and EPG (electronic program guide) are easy to navigate but the remote is a little complicated and does take a bit of getting used to at first.
General set-up is easy and once you experience the quality and flexibility of the Sony KDL-19S5720 unit and its many features, you'll be hooked.
Whether for your own home use or even as a wonderfully practical gift, The Sony KDL-19S5720 offers the best parts of all the current current Sony technology at a nifty value price. Ultimately, a great deal for these tough economic times.
