Many people decide about the quality of a product by looking at the price tag. This comparison is not always useful. Some products can charge you more due to the brand name they carry but in reality they are not worth it. Similarly, some of the products may be very god but they may not be that pricey. Sony KLV 17HR3 is a highly priced TV set but it lacks in many aspects. The Wega Engine Processing which has always made Sony LCDs impressive is not made to work in this set. This proves that price is not always an indicator of quality. And some times even the big brand names can make mistakes which can make some of their products less attractive for the general public.

The set may lack in one dimension, but the designing of the set its look is very carefully done. It seems to be a very stylish and elegant set. Some of the technical aspects are well handled in this set. The audio functions are bound to impress you due to the presence of BBE sound processing feature. Noise is greatly reduced. Backlight adjustment is also done very properly. It shows that even technically the set is not very weak.

The picture quality is highly enhanced. The edges are properly rounded and over all effect of the picture is good and impressive. The images are good and more natural looking. The contrast function is done appropriately although it needs to be adjusted for every individual set. . The audio features are also very well handled. Just like the picture quality, the sounds are clear and impressive. The speakers are well placed and make it a refined experience to view this set. Despite some problems Sony KLV 17HR3 is a safe bet.
