Toshiba 55-inch X1 packs a 3 TB hard drive, records 8 channels at once
I hear Toshiba CELL REGZA 55X1 and the first thought that pops into my mind is WOW! The 55-inch LED-backlit set, announced in Japan, utilizes Toshiba's proprietary Cell Platform--a combination of the Cell Broadband Engine and Toshiba's image processing algorithms. Toshiba claims the technology enables the 55X1, which is mounted on a 3 TB hard disk drive, to provide a brightness rating of 1250 cd/m2, a dynamic contrast ratio of 5, 000, 000:1, and the capability to record up to 26 hours of programming from up to 8 channels--simultaneously. The 240 Hz 55X1 is shipping in Japan come the beginning of December, and is expected to reach the Americas in 2010. For a rather extravagant price, of course: $11, 115.
