Sony's Super Sized 84-inch 4K TV Carries a Humongous Price Tag
There are two main reasons Sony's XBR-84X900 costs more than a car. First, it's 84 inches, which might be more roomy than that sub-compact you're driving around. And secondly, it boasts a 4K resolution, or 3840x2160, which is four times higher than Full HD 1080p (1920x1080). Content is currently lacking to take full advantage of that resolution, but in its absence, Sony says the XBR-84X900's XCA8-4K chip upscales HD (or lower resolution) images to 4K.
Other features include dynamic edge-lit, LED backlighting, a 10 unit "Live" speaker system, 3D support, network connectivity, and SimulView gaming, which allows two players to watch two separate Full HD pictures at the same time.
