Sony Adds Three Skinny Rear-Screen Projection TVs to Bravia LineS

Sony rolled out some improbably thin rear projectors that aim to solve that problem of excessive depth of rear screen projector TVs. The Bravia line of 3-LCD microdisplay rear-screen projector TVs are 22% slimmer than the previous Sony Grand Wega projection TVs.

The linup includes three screen sizes, the 50-inch KDF-50E3000 and the 46-inch KDF-46E3000 (pictured above), both of which are 1080p sets and will ship in July for an undisclosed price, and then the cheaper 37-inch KDF-37H1000 that has a 720p resolution. Just how thin are they? To give you an idea, the 50-inch set is a mere 12.6 inches deep and its 46-inch brother is 11.9 inches thick. That 720p 37-incher will be shipping in May for $1300.

Projection TVs give you a considerable bang for your buck, but we're nonplussed because Sony's not telling us the prices of the the largest-screened members if this new line. That's the biggest part of the story for the rear-screens, so we'll wait for that price before we start gushing over these big honking TV sets.
