Excerpt: Sony Bravia L-Series HDTVs provide vivid 720p resolution and dynamic contrast ratios of 13,000:1 (the 26-inch model) and 13,000:1 (for 32-inch model), with several versatile sizes perfect for the budget-conscious consumer or anyone wanting an HDTV that works well in the bedroom, kitchen, or office. Bravia L-Series HDTVs have a wealth of HD connections, including three HDMI inputs.
Summary: Although it costs a tad more than bargain-basement models, the Sony KDL-L5000 series makes up for it with above-basement design and picture quality.
Pros: Produces relatively deep black levels for an entry-level LCD; nice selection of picture controls and energy-saving options; plenty of connectivity with three HDMI and two component-video inputs; sleek design.
Cons: A bit more expensive than some entry-level LCDs; slight greenish tinge to some colors; less-even screen uniformity.
