Stitch LCD TV brings Disney to the bedroom for a stiff price

stitch-tv.jpgRemember that annoying but fascinating Disney character dubbed Stitch of Lilo & Stitch movie fame? If you don't, your kids likely know exactly who Stitch is, making the new 20-inch Stitch TV perfect for your young one's bedroom. The kinda' baby-blue LCD TV has Stitch crawling up its backside and he even has a moving jaw with the TV controls inside. Its 20-inch display packs in 1680 x 1050 pixels, complemented by a single HDMI port and support for B-CAS Japanese digital TV. Oh right, the caveat. Looks like the Stitch TV will only be sold in Japan for a ridiculously expensive 100000 yen or roughly US$1015. Better off picking up the Blu-ray disc by the looks of it.

Sharp bows DH77 AQUOS LCD's

aquos-dh77.jpgSharp's latest AQUOS line, the DH77, will bring four new LCD HDTV'S to market sometime later this year. Sized 32-, 42-, 46-, and 52-inches, the DH77's will feature 1080p resolution, 100 Hz refresh rate, 50, 000:1 contrast ratio, 3 HDMI inputs and a USB port. Sounds pretty boring until you get to the eco-friendly features. Every model will include a remote control with a green eco-button that with one-click lowers the TV's energy consumption when in use. How exactly it works I'm unsure of. The DH77's will also include Optical Picture Control technology which automatically adjusts backlight brightness according to natural lighting in the room. Obviously this saves a fair amount of energy over time as well. Pricing and availability is a big unknown, but I'm sure we'll see the DH77 line hit shelves sometime this year.

Samsung Bordeaux PAVV 650 LCD line is intimidating in name only

samsung-pavv-650-hdtv.jpgThere is something intimidating about Samsung's Bordeaux PAVV 650 line of LCD TV's. Could it be the name perhaps. Newly arrived in Korea, the PAVV line consists of 46- and 50-inch models that sport 1080p resolution, 120 Hz image refresh, a USB port, and four HDMI 1.3 slots complemented by DLNA support. While we're not sure about pricing or the likelihood these two high-end sounding models will end up anywhere outside of Korea, we'll assume the name correlates with expensive.
