Sony has unveiled a new series of not-too-expensive HDTVs with something extra special: 500GB of hard drive space. Oh, and like everything else these days, they're 3D too.

The Bravia BX Series BX30H edition is available in Japan only in three sizes (22-, 26-, and 32-inch), comes in black and white, and totes a 500GB HDD. The US version, however, is isn't so stellar in comparison. Referred to as the BX300, the American model comes in 22- and 32-inch sizes and only in black - without the hard drive. Boo.

But here's what they both have:

  • 720p HD resolution
  • 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
  • CCFL back lighting
  • 5.1 channel audio output
  • 24p True Cinema
  • BRAVIA Engine 2
  • BRAVIA Sync

Prices for the BX30H are still unknown, and it's not clear whether or not the BX300 will be sold with a hard drive eventually. But the BX300 costs $280 for the 22-inch screen and $420 for the 32-inch model.
