Sony is to release four new 3D-capable TV within the next fortnight, the NX710 and NX810 series. 3D-capable meaning you’ll need optional 3D accessories: 3D Glasses (TDGBR100B or TDGBR50B) and 3D Transmitter (TMRBR100)
The Sony Bravia NX710 series will be available in 40″ and 46″ screen size, while the NX810 series will be a choice of 55″ or 60″. And the NX series employ the Sony Monolithic design feature, so these are some nice looking TVs. If you do look at these TVs, do remember that there is an optional stand available, that is better looking, gives better sound, and allows you to tilt the TV back 6-degrees for a more optimal viewing position. Further on this, the 6-degree leanback is not an option on the 60″ model.
Both the NX710 and NX810 series are Dynamic Edge LED Backlight TVs, with the NX710 series employing Motionflow 100Hz technology, the NX810 series with Motionflow 200Hz technology.
