The unveiling of the 2009 Hitachi Wooo line of panels don’t differ much from their brethren on the outside and share some inside features (120Hz tech, 250GB HDD equipped models with iVDR slots for more hard drives and Wooonet DLNA network support) but as any HDTV TV fan knows, it’s the inside that counts. And these could give many other companies a run for their money with these specs.
The 4 XP plasmas range from 42″ to 50″ and will feature better contrast ratios, as high as 40,000:1 in one case, with improved colors and energy savings too, as mandated by improvements made by other companies.
The super-thin 35mm / 1.4-inch thick LCDs are back in four cool new models, with UWB connected tuners, auto sensing brightness and green “eco” features too.
The XP line of LCDs has just 3 displays, but like the rest can hook up to the net and interface with Yahoo! Japan’s web TV portal (sadly probably won’t see the light of day when the US versions of these debut later this year).
The XP and Plasmas are scheduled to be available to get our greedy mitts on in Japan in the next month or so, and the ultra-thin line should be debuting around October or so.
We admit it – it’s been awhile since we posted HDTV deals on here. We’ve been focused on the mess that was (and is) the DTV transition, and other tidbits in the news regarding HDTV. Well, hopefully we earn back your respect with this post, filled with great deals on HDTV goodness. All are subject to selling out/sales ending, of course.
OneCall, digital superstore, has a really nice deal on the Sony KDL-40XBR7 40-inch Bravia XBR Series 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV – $1,770 + free shipping. That’s about the lowest we’ve found on this right now. This one does action about as well as any HDTV on the market (right now anyway), though Sony ain’t cheap as many HDTV fans know.
NewEgg has been around awhile and sometimes offers rally good HDTV deals, like the Hitachi UT32X812 Directors Series 32in 120Hz LCD HDTV Monitor w/ 1.5in UltraThin – $700 + free shipping. And even better, they throw in a free Hitachi AVC08U Audio Video Center with the deal, which makes it super good.
6ave.com has been a popular electronics destination for some time, and they’re featuring the Sharp LC-46D85U 46in 1080p LCD HDTV for only $1288 + here’s a 5% off coupon code for you to use: AFL5 + free shipping = $1233 shipped, which is a very cool deal, indeed.
Feel free to feast on our bounty of HDTV deals, and we hope to continue focusing on more great deals in the days to come once again.
Crunch Gear has posted a review of the Hitachi 50″ Plasma P50X902 HDTV that they used and wrote up. The site is usually pretty in-depth regarding their reviews, and this one is no exception, going over each facet of the TV from top to bottom, the good the bad and the ugly, with full detailed pictures throughout.
Overall: The TV got excellent marks for its scaler for SD images, and its HD quality and colors are pretty good. Power swivel and viewing angle are very good.
However, the reviewer considers it a bit overpriced at its current retail price level, and there were complaints about its HD imaging at times. The menu system, remote and speakers received low marks too.
Here’s the whole detailed review: Link
At CEATEC 2008 in Japan late last week, Hitachi showed off several prototype LCD HDTVs in their recently announced Wooo flat panel line including LCDs with panels a razor-thin 15mm deep (0.6 inches!), plasma panels as thin as 35mm (1.4 inchs) and a 32-inch ultra-light LCD model weighing in at a tiny 10 kg (22 pounds). Thin will be getting even thinner, and more thrifty with your energy bill as well.
Low power utilization will be a primary feature of these TV’s as well. The ultra-light is said to consume about half the power of conventional LCD sets. Hitachi’s goal is to cut power usage of their televisions at least 50% in all their models beginning in 2009, a good point considering large Plasmas and LCDs tend to be quite greedy with power consumption.
Hitachi also showcased several unique and stylish “frames” for their LCD sets which replace traditional black or silver bezels with more unique and creative colors/designs, to help blend your TV in with your interior design. Odds are this will be have some popularity everywhere (depending on the price) but Hitachi is still weighing what options to market in what territory.
One thing is for sure: the flat-panel TV design standards currently in place will need to get a makeover with other companies as well. No pricing details were released as of yet.
