Sony adds hard drive goodness to Bravia TVs
Sony has launched a trio of new Bravia TVs over in Japan that boast some intriguing features we’d love to see migrating towards these shores.
Somewhat surprisingly, the EX52H and pair of EX42H models don’t feature home cinema’s current technological flavour of the month – 3D – but that doesn’t mean they’re lacking in innovation.
All three come with a cool 500GB of storage under the hood courtesy of a built-in hard drive. Better still, Sony’s quite happy for you to transfer recorded content from your hard drive to an external storage device via USB.
The 40in KDL-40EX52H has a full HD LED display, along with a pair of digital TV tuners and an Ethernet port for some web-friendly goodness. You’re clearly paying for the storage-related features, however, with Sony asking for the Yen equivalent of £1,120 to get your hands on its new 40in baby.
The EX42H, meanwhile, comes in 32in and 22in variants, both with a non-HD resolution of 1366×768. They too aren’t the cheapest around, having been lined up at £830 and £680 respectively. No word on plans to release the trio internationally yet, however.
