The latest low-cost AEON’s ZG-0032LD, the home-oriented HDTV, brags 32-inch screen and the Samsung LCD panel. It enjoys 450 nits of brightness, 1200:1 contrast ratio and a pleasing viewing angle of 178 degrees. Let us not forget to mention its 2 HDMI ports, two S-Video, mini stereo input and a headphone jack. Well, there are other high-tech machines in the market with superior image quality, but the AEON ZG-0032LD is indubitably enthralling with a levelheaded price tag of US $1,131. I am sure that you won’t feel sorry for buying the ZG-0032LD as it pays you more than what you pay for it.
Well, Sony has finally dropped the idea of manufacturing Plasmas as expected, the foremost reason being a swift decline in the shipments of plasmas that reduced drastically from 300,000 in 2004 to 100,000 in 2005 and the second reason being the skimpy profits. Sina.com reports that in an attempt to compensate this, Sony plans to increase the shipment ratio of its 40-inch and above LCD TVs to more than 50% by the end of 2006. Sony, in a joint venture with Samsung, is going to construct an eighth-generation (8G) TFT-LCD plant with a monthly capacity of 50,000 glass substrates. Makoto Kogure, Sony’s deputy president of TV & video business said : ‘The company expects to increase its global LCD-TV shipments by 33% to eight million units in fiscal 2007.’
Sony, I knew that you would stick to your words. When Sony left the Plasma arena, it planned to concentrate more on its LCDs. Now, Sony Canada has added surprisingly nine new LCD HDTVs to its Bravia series. The Bravia S-series now includes 40-inch KLV-40S200A, the 32-inch KLV-32S200A, the 26-inch KLV-26S200A and the 23-inch KLV-23S200A with 1366 X 768 pixels screen resolution. The Bravia V2500 line would include 40-inch KDL-40V2500 and the 46-inch KDL-46V2500 featuring two HDMI ports and 1080p functionality. The Bravia XBR series will include 46-inch KDL-46XBR2 and 40-inch KDL-40XBR2 boasting a chic design, three HDMI ports and 1920 x 1080 screen resolutions. The price range starts from $1,299 to $5,499 depending on the Bravia model.
Sharp has done a spectacular job by introducing the new 57-inch AQUOS LC-57D90U LCD HDTV but I think it failed to justify the hefty price tag of $16,000 around its neck. For your kind info, the so-called 1080p LCD doesn’t even allows 1080p over HDMI and even if compared with other LCD HDTVs, the LC-57D90U takes long 10 seconds to lock up to a 3:2 sequence. Except for its comparatively larger screen, it doesn’t boast anything that counts for the $16,000 tag. On the other hand, I will give full points to its scaler, 4ms response time and impressive video deinterlacing. But, if you are going to buy the AQUOS LC-57D90U LCD HDTV, I won’t advice you to do so. The much better option is to buy two or three smaller sized LCDs for your different rooms.
Honestly, I will give full points to the new just-announced LCDs from Vizio that have So-So sort of specifications at a very reasonable eye-catching price. Both the 42-inch LCDs named GV42 and L42 boast 1366 x 768 screen resolutions, a contrast ratio of 1600:1 for GV42 and 800:1 for L42, an imposing 178-degrees wide viewing angle and response time of 8ms. You have to shell out merely $1699 for GV42 and $1499 for L42. The price factor is cool and surely going to lure customers. I have no problems with the specifications, as I don’t expect something like Sharp is offering at a stocky price.

Now, I want this thing in my bathroom ASAP. TileVision has been publicized as bathroom appliance of the future, it’s tamperproof and waterproof with 6mm thick toughened safety glass, and I hope you’d not mind embellishing even your loo with it.

The 17″ and 23″ wide-screen TileVision with 170° viewing angle will hit you in September with three modes, including Mirror, Black and Silver finish.
Another 1080p LCD from the house of Samsung is going to make its debut in the month of September. More and more LCDs, HDTVs and Plasmas are hitting the stores like cell phones and laptops. The new 52-inch LN-S5296D LCD comes with 6000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, over two million pixel resolution, Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp, S-PVA Panel, and 10-bit processor with 12.8 billion colors. Two HDMI units, two components, two RF and a USB port enhance the connectivity. You would experience the high quality sound owing to the SRS TruSurround XT™ sound. You could afford the feature packed Samsung LN-S5296D LCD for less than $5000. Everything seems perfect to me if we compare specifications and pricing.

It seems like Bang & Olufsen laid all its emphasis on the stylish make of their new LCD that comes integrated with a DAB radio tuner. But, how could they forget to bestow it with some vital HD features like HDMI? The BeoCenter features a 23-inch screen (very small as compared to the other LCDs present in the market). Anyway, if you are looking for a sexy and chic LCD, you can stop your hunt with the new BeoCenter. It features the DVI plug and a horde of video ports. The best part is that the BeoCenter comes in vibrant colors including silver, black, grey, red, blue and yellow. The modish 23-inch BeoCenter is priced heftily (if compared with specs) at $5199.
