Excerpt: Of the sets we tested, Sony’s Z-Series TV offered the richest jackpot of internet goodies, including Netflix, Yahoo Widgets, video podcasts, radio and a host of custom-formatted sites. It will also stream multimedia files over a local network.
Pros: Spectacular contrast ratio. Buttery-smooth 240-Hz refresh rate banishes judder and blur. Excellent universal remote with dedicated buttons for web content.
Cons: Some noticeable artifacts when upconverting SD video. Streaming video limited to MPEG-2; no AAC support.
