Ratings: Sony KDS-R60XBR1 LCOS HDTV

Build Quality: 93
We took it out of the box holding the speakers (a big no-no), and it didn't fall apart

Value: 95
• It sure is 1080p
• Lowest-priced 1080p set we've seen so far

Features: 92
• Why is there no way to check lamp life?
• Lots of adjustability and inputs

Performance: 96
• A remarkable contrast ratio
• A black level better than most front projectors

Ergonomics: 90
• Remote control is too sparse
• Menus are almost too detailed

Overall Rating: 94
Its performance speaks for itself. It's a digital RPTV with nearly videophile performance, something most people never thought possible. Kudos to Sony.
