The Big Picture


Whether you’re cutting the cord or upgrading your cable or satellite subscriptions (don’t do it!), the aim of a good viewing experience should be better TV — not just more TV. State-of-the-art giant screens are sharper than ever, and new delivery platforms mean you don’t have to give your right arm to Kabletown to get great content.

Bigger and Better?

These TVs don't have easy names, but they do have the latest features.

Sony XBR-X900B

There's not much 4K content available yet (4K has four times the resolution of 1048 TVs), but this TV will be ready when everything -- gaming, television, and movies -- gets there. It's big; the diagonal is 64.5 inches, a tiny bit bigger than ScarJo is tall -- and built-in speakers pack a pitch-perfect punch. The human eye can't perceive more pixels than 4K can deliver, so expect it to be the standard for some time. $3,799;

BenQ W1070

Want to go screen-free? Top-quality units run in the thousands of dollars, but this model offers excellent picture quality for the money, with fine color accuracy and 3-D playback (BenQ 3-D glasses, $99 each, not included). This is the device that could anchor your new home screening room. $689;
Measuring 4.9 mm at its thinnest point, Sony's upcoming Bravia X90C, announced at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in January, is slimmer than the company's own smartphone.
