Deal of the Day: Pioneer PDP-5070HD PureVision 50 Inch Plasma HDTV

Looking for a name-brand 50" Plasma under $2500? You'll want to check out the great deal on the Pioneer PDP-5070HD PureVision 50" Plasma HDTV over at Amazon:

Amazon.com Product Description The 50-inch Pioneer PDP-5070HD plasma television delivers large, lifelike images right out of the box, thanks to the built-in ATSC (digital) tuner that can pick up over-air high-def channels with an optional antenna. You can also hook up an HDMI-capable cable or satellite set-top box and enjoy the highest standard of high-definition audio and video--with only a single cord connection. Nicely compact, it features a bottom mounted speaker design that makes it easy to fit into a home theater cabinet with a smaller footprint.

Pioneer's exclusive Crystal Emissive Layer is sandwiched between the plasma glass and the individual light cells. This advanced layer helps conduct energy more efficiently so that each cell can be charged and discharged three times faster than before. Pioneer's Advanced Continuous Emission IV (ACE IV) works in conjunction with the Crystal Emissive Layer in the glass to reduce the visual steps between levels of color, making color transitions smoother than ever before. It also offers both vertical and horizontal ribs that help keep the light focused and concentrated, and prevent it from bleeding into neighboring cells. This cell structure means a brighter, sharper, and more accurate image that consistently reminds you of the reasons you bought a plasma TV in the first place.

The PDP-5070HD features a 1365 x 768-pixel resolution (meaning that 1080p signals via the HDMI connection will be downscaled) and a wide 160-degree viewing angle. This Pioneer PureVision plasma TV uses Pure Drive II, 10-bit all-digital processing that maintains a digital path throughout signal processing. This streamlined Pure Drive process provides an optimal picture with virtually no video noise or loss of quality. Other video processing features include Dynamic Range Expansion (DRE) to further reduce video noise, Advanced Pure Cinema 3:3 pull-down for smooth, natural reproduction of film content, and color temperature adjustment.

Be sure to check this deal out before the price goes up.

Is Walmart About to Offer an Inexpensive HD DVD Player?

There's a nice unconfirmed rumor circulating on the internet that Walmart may be offering an HD DVD player soon. According to Highdefdigest.com:

News that Wal-Mart was planning to sell a high-def disc player at the discounted price of anywhere from $50-$299 spread across the web like wildfire Friday, but at the end of the day, the unconfirmed report raises more questions than it answers.

The news first surfaced Thursday morning in a post on AVS Forum which cited a Chinese news agency as reporting that Wal-Mart has signed a deal to produce two million HD DVD players to be sold at a discounted price of $299 a pop.

There is some confusion if the Walmart plans to sell HD DVD or Blu-ray according to the article:

But as other online news outlets began to pick up the story on Friday (including perhaps most notably, Engadget), questions began to arise over which high-def formats (if any) the original Chinese report was referring to, as translations of the article show that it uses the phrase "Blu-ray HD DVD" or "Blue Light HD DVD" to describe the supported format of the reported disc player.

We're assuming that the format will be HD DVD but who knows. Any type of high definition player at Walmart should definitely be a bonus for the consumer and surely add some fire to the high definition format war.

Review: JVC HD-58S998 HDTV

When it comes to buying a new HDTV many first-timers go with a rear-projection TV because there a lot less expensive than flat panels (although flat panel prices continue to drop). The thing most people don't realize is how sleek and unboxy projection TVs are becoming. One such HDTV is the JVC HD-58S998 which has a cabinet that's only 10.75-inches deep and while that may not be sleek enough for some consumers, it's a great HDTV on a budget. According to a review of the JVC HD-58S998 at CNET:

From the front, the JVC HD-58S998 looks like a typically sleek, modern-day HDTV, and in fact it's one of the most attractive examples we've seen yet. We love that the bezel along the top and sides of the screen's edge measures a mere 1/3 of an inch wide (!), even thinner than that of the former thin-bezel champ, Mitsubishi's WD-65831. That sliver of a bezel allows this 58-inch set to occupy just 51.5 inches of width. As is par for the RPTV course, the area below the screen is significantly chunkier and glossy black, interrupted only by a big JVC logo and a cool-looking power indicator that can be disabled--a boon for home theater fanatics who demand a minimum of superfluous illumination. All told, the HD-58S998 is probably as compact as any 58-inch RPTV could be, measuring 51.5x37.9x10.8 inches, and weighing a feathery 115 pounds.

Overall the HD-58S998 got high marks except:

The biggest problem we had with the JVC's picture quality had to do with its uneven geometry. Ideally you want a grid displayed on a TV screen to have perfectly straight horizontal and vertical lines, and with most microdisplays and all flat-panel sets, they come pretty close. With the HD-58S998 we reviewed, however, it was a different story. The most egregious issue was with horizontal lines in the top two-thirds of the screen, which curved upward toward the sides, the left more than the right, for an effect that kind of resembled a crooked smile. Other areas of the grid looked funky, too; vertical lines toward the edges bowed inward at the top and slightly outward toward the top middle, in contrast to the screen's lower third, which was mostly even.

Review: tvCompass Wi-Fi Smart Remote

If you haven't noticed, we really dig remotes here at TVSnob and I think most of us forget how important remotes are until we lose one. One remote that grabs our interest is the new tvCompass Wi-Fi Smart Remote which has quite a few cool features. According to Wi-FiPlanet, the basics of the remote are:

The $299 (MSRP) Smart Remote uses the familiar wand style that most people are comfortable holding, as opposed the tabletop or two-handed designs becoming more common. The remote sports a spacious 2.2-inch color LCD atop a pair of soft keys (whose functions change depending what's on the screen), while a numeric keypad and a familiar array of several dozen function keys round out the front of the unit.

Many universal remotes use common alkaline batteries, but a Wi-Fi-enabled device like the Smart Remote would likely suck them dry over the course of a day's programming. Therefore, the Smart Remote uses its own internal and rechargeable Lithium Ion battery (define), which isn't user-accessible and is rated to last about a week (our test unit's battery was still going strong after about three days of use). The remote we tested was connected to an AC adapter for charging, but tvCompass informed us that future units would ship with a more convenient charging dock.

Here's the really cool part of the remote:

Another feature that takes advantage of the Smart Remote's connectivity is click365, which uses RSS feeds to let you access info from news, sports, weather and shopping sites (such as Amazon.com) directly through the remote. You can't actually make product purchases through the remote (at least, not yet) and some feeds simply present an abstract and send more detailed information to you via e-mail. At the moment there are only a handful of feeds available and you can't add your own custom feeds, though tvCompass says that ability will be forthcoming.

While reading RSS feeds on a remote may not be for everyone, it's neat to see how remote controls keep evolving into mini-network appliances.

Make Way for LaserTV

So, the other day we were talking about LCOS TVs being a great opportunity to get a large screen TV for a reasonable price. What if we told you there was another projection technology coming that offered exeptional quality at half the price? Well, you might want to check out LaserTv technology from Novalux. According to RealTechNews:

Plasma was king until LCD got bigger and better. And just when you thought you could settle down in front of a huge LCD screen and enjoy some high-def peace of mind comes LaserTV. Developed by Novalux, LaserTV has this little calling card: it costs 50% less to produce, has double the color range, and uses 75% less power.

The article continues:

So here is where LaserTV fits, in the big picture (so to speak.) LaserTV is a projection technology, so if you like micro-thin flat panels, this is not for you. The technology replaces the spinning UHP lamp in the back of projection DLP and LCD TVs with laser-beaming hardware. The lasers are faster and use less power, and they create a picture that side by side, has blown away the best plasma, projection and LCDs sets currently on the market.

So just like LCOS, if you're looking for a sleek flat-screen then LaserTV probably isn't for you. If you can handle a larger projection TV that's affordable, the LaserTv may be right down your alley.

Hopefully LaserTV technology will be available sometime early next year. We'll keep you posted when we hear something.

Update:
Mitsubishi is releasing the world's first laser TV, LaserVue, in 2008.

LCOS TV from MicroDisplay for Under $1500 Coming Soon

Looks like we might be seeing a sub $2000 56inch LCOS TV real soon. If you're not familiar with LCOS, it's basically a reflective technology similar to DLP projectors but uses liquid crystals instead of individual mirrors. According to CNET News:

MicroDisplay, a Fremont, Calif.-based company, will begin manufacturing a 56-inch liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) television this summer that will sell a few months later for between $1,300 and $1,500.

A type of so-called microdisplay technology, LCOS is a silicon chip covered in liquid crystals. Light is reflected off the chip and through a projector to produce an image on a TV screen. MicroDisplay plans to use its own proprietary liquid crystal-covered chip, which it has dubbed "Liquid Fidelity," in rear-projection televisions that it will sell to mass-market brands, such as Akai and Memorex.

One of the big advantages of LCOS is that the TVs cabinet depth is shrinking and they're more energy effecient:

Most rear-projection TVs now measure less than 20 inches deep, though many flat panels measure a mere 8 inches from front to back--MicroDisplay's will be 16 inches deep. Another benefit of rear-projection sets is that they consume half the power of flat panels, which can mean lower electricity bills for owners.

If you're interested in a large screen TV for a reasonable price you might want to start looking at LCOS from MicroDisplay.

Review: Sharp Aquos LC-52D92U 52-inch LCD HDTV

If your in the market for an LCD HDTV, you can't go wrong with the Sharp Aquos line. Ecoustics.com has a review of the latest Aquos TV, the Sharp Aquos LC-52D92U 52-inch LCD HDTV. The review is pretty decent with quite a few images and full benchmark results. The review starts out:

The company's newest top-of-the-line sets are those in the D92U series, which includes the Sharp Aquos LC-52D92U 52-inch LCD HDTV. New features making their appearance in this series include a five-wavelength backlight (to enhance color reproduction), 120-Hz frame-rate conversion, and an Advanced Fine Motion display mode. Those last two features aim to eliminate lag from fast-moving images and to smooth them out by quickening the display's response time. It also has a conspicuously high 15,000:1 rated contrast ratio — a 50 percent jump over the spec for last year's models. Of all these improvements, that last one is the most immediately noticeable when you first turn on the set.

Overall the articles states:

The Sharp Aquos LC-52D92U 52-inch LCD HDTV is the kind of bigscreen flat TV that many folks would be glad to have in their homes. It delivers a crisp, bright picture with an impressively wide viewing angle, deep shadows, and strong contrast. Where the Sharp comes up short is its below-average handling of standard-def programs and pumped-up, unnatural-looking color. That first issue is one that I imagine many people could live with, but the second one is something that discerning viewers will find hard to overlook.

Be sure to check out the full review.

Deal of the Day: Philips 42PF7320A 42" Widescreen Plasma HDTV

Other features include picture-in-picture display (via component and HDMI connections), auto volume leveler, adjustable color temperature and sharpness, sleep timer, and V-Chip parental controls.

What a great TV for around $2000 with free shipping so you might want to jump on this price while you've got the chance.

Hands on with Apple TV

Computerworld has a decent and lengthy look at the new Apple TV. Overall the review is positive but brings up an important point:

One thing potential buyers should keep in mind is that Apple TV is designed to work directly only with audio, video and podcasts managed in an iTunes library using iTunes software. In other words, despite its many virtues, iTunes is not for those who plan to acquire video and audio from other stores. Put differently, Apple TV directly supports only the formats that iTunes supports, although there are a variety of tools, including Apple’s QuickTime Pro and Techspansion’s Visual Hub, that can be used to convert video.

The article finishes up by saying:

The Apple TV is focused on one goal: Bringing iTunes-based digital media stored on your computer to your TV. It achieves that goal quite well and simply with a device that is simple to set up and a delight to use.

Apple TV, however, isn't for everybody. For one thing, its $299 price tag isn’t exactly inexpensive. And you are largely limited to using the iTunes store, which has a large and loyal following. However, videos are available from a variety of other sources that aren't supported by Apple TV and the iTunes software.

Still, if you want easy access to music and video from iTunes, as well as your personal digital images, Apple TV is an excellent choice.
