Let's talk about the big picture. Better yet—the big, clear picture. If you're like me, a person who thinks the best reality show on TV is any sporting event, you'll want to get a look at the Sony XBR 4K Ultra HD TV. 

In any of its dimensions—55-inch, 65-inch or the gigundo 84-inch screen—this television will make a ballgame or golf tournament come alive, putting you in best seat in the house. But with giant screens all the rage these days, it's the clarity of the picture, not size, that matters.

You haven't seen high-def until you sit in front of this baby. I had that chance recently—talk about being mesmerized! I didn't want to leave, but when I did, I noticed something about all the other high-def sets on display: They seemed to be just a bit out of focus.

Maybe that's because Sony isn't kidding about the "Ultra HD" in the name. There are more than 8 million individual pixels in the 3,840 x 2,160 resolution screen. Most current HDTVs feature 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, or just over 2 million pixels—meaning the XBR 4K Ultra picture is four times as clear.

Then there's the wider range of colors and a more brilliant picture with Sony’s TRILUMINOS display technology. Dynamic Edge LED backlighting boosts contrast where needed on the screen. Even old movies look better. That's a far cry from the days of putting a blue-, red- and green-striped plastic sheet on your black-and-white TV to simulate color. Don't laugh, I tried that!

With the Sony XBR 4K Ultra HD TV, you can wirelessly mirror whatever is on your Android smartphone, effectively turning your handheld into a widescreen. The 65-watt front-facing speaker system simulates 5.1 sound, with an enlarged sweet spot, meaning great sound quality no matter where you sit in the room.

Put this wonder in your man cave if you dare, but don't be surprised when the rest of the family starts hanging out there.
