Sony V Series | Bravia V3000, V5000 Series

Sony V SeriesThe Sony V Series consists of the Sony Bravia V3000, and V5000 series of LCD HDTVs. Both series are again full HD at 1080p (1920x1080p pixel resolution) for the highest HD format, and a 10-bit LCD panel and comes with internal digital and analog tuners. The Sony V5000 series comes in 40, 46, and 52-inch sizes, while the V3000 come in 40 and 56-inches. The higher V5000 series comes with a 2.4GHz band (RF) utilized “every easy remote control” while the V3000 comes with a standard infrared remote control. We are not too sure what the benefit of their radio remote is, except we Imagen the distance it can be used is greatly enhanced, probably allowing you to control the set from a different room with no direct line of sight.
