Whether you love 'em, hate 'em or qualify 'em with statements like "great for vacuum cleaners; not so much for HDTVs," you've got to respect that fact that Consumer Reports buys all the goodies it tests. Especially when the item in question is a $2500 Sony XEL-1 OLED TV. Overall, we came to the same conclusion as they did: incredible tech appeal, great picture quality, poor input options and "are you kidding me" size-to-dollar ratio. We'll even overlook the fact that the 960x540 pixels isn't truly HD, because at 11-inches it just doesn't matter. Credit to this little tech jewel for eliciting some verbiage that we don't recall ever seeing before from CR -- "... top of your list-provided, of course, that money is no object." Somehow, we don't picture that "money is no object" crowd flipping through the pages of CR.
