Front


The front of the XBR-60LX900 shows the clean, straightforward approach of Sony's new monolithic design. A series of touch controls are located on the bottom left corner.

Back**


The ports and panels of the demo unit that we looked at were covered, but there are a number of HDMI ports under there.

Sides**


The first thing you notice looking at the sides is the tilt of the panel: the screen is angled up by 6 degrees so it can be mounted lower. You can also see the ports on the left side, and some additional controls on the right.

Stand/Mount**


The XBR-LX900 sits on a large plastic stand that looks pretty robust: despite the tilt of the screen, it is unlikely to fall over or tip. The small hole below the Sony logo is the ambient sensor, which uses a digital camera to detect if someone is watching TV. If no one is, the display will turn off.

Aesthetics**


Sony's new monolitic design is certainly striking, with the new display offering an imposing, yet clean look. It would certainly form the centerpiece of a high-end home theater system.
