Mitsubishi Reveals 7 New MZW/MXW/MX LCD HDTV's, Coming To Japan This Fall

mit1_02(2).jpgMitsubishi has revealed three new LCD TV lineups in Japan-Real MZW series, Real MXW series, and Real MX series-bringing a total of 7 new models to the Mitsub family. The Real MZW series consists of two higher-end models, the 40-inch LCD-40MZW200 and the 46-inch LCD-46MZW200, both slated for an October 21 release. Prominent features include 1080p, a 10-bit Diamond panel with 120 Hz technology, 15000:1 contrast ratio, 16-bit video processing, and HDMI CEC compatibility.

The 37-inch LCD-37MXW200 and 42-inch LCD-42MXW200 make up the MXW series, hitting Japan September 1. Slightly cheaper than the MZW series, these two models are the mid-range sets, delivering a full HD picture, running on Mitsub's Diamond Engine, and featuring 'auto turn' technology which lets you swivel the TV's viewing angle using the remote control. The MX series consists of the 19-inch LCD-19ATL20, 26-inch LCD-26MX20, and 32-inch LCD-32MX11 and seem to be ideal for a bedroom or possibly kitchen HDTV. These are the three cheapest models of the seven and only display 720p resolution. Japan will see the MX series released October 21.

It also looks like Mitsubishi is working on an LCD TV/Blu-ray player/Blu-ray recorder combo with a development timeline leading to an official release this fall.

The larger 46- and 55-inch models also feature an RGB Dynamic LED backlight to enhance contrast ratio.

The Bravia W4500 series comes in 40-, 46-, and 52-inch sizes and is powered by Bravia's Engine 2. DLNA-compatible, the W4500 series sports 1080p resolution across the board.

Mitsubishi LT-52148 LCD HDTV Gets Reviewed

mitsub(2).jpgMitsubishi is better known as a rear-projection TV maker than an LCD manufacturer, but given the slow death of the RPTV market the company has ventured into new waters with the 52-inch LT-52148. And while the company has to tweak their LCD technology an little bit, the new 148 series' pulls off the incorporation of some high-end high-def technology pretty well. The 1080p, 120 Hz LCD set does have some ringing around objects with the default picture presets, excessively bright green tones, a sluggish menu, and power consumption one can't exactly call "green", but with an impressive native contrast ratio, HD video handling and an effective 120 Hz refresh rate, the Mitsubishi LT-52148 looks to be the first of many quality flat-panels. If you're the early adopter type when it comes to brand names, head over to Amazon where you'll find the LT-52148 for $2380 with free shipping now.

Bravia T Series: Sony Gets Design Crazy With 6 New LCD TV's To Hit Asia Pacific In August

Bravia_TSeries_highres(2).jpgIf we respect anyone's opinion it's the boys over at Engadget HD, but this time maybe not so much. While they feel Sony's new Bravia T series LCD models are unsightly, we have to give Sony kudos for stepping outside of the design box. While the past year has seen a shrinking bezel trend, Sony throws a curveball and sticks the Bravia's built-in speakers on the side of the set. Granted they're just asking for criticism doing something so crazy and all, but it's nice to see something a little different.

The Sony Bravia T series will be launched in the Asia Pacific region at the end of August and features six new LCD HDTV's sized from 19 to 32 inches. The 19-inch models feature 1680 x 1050 resolution while the larger 26- and 32-inch models feature 1366 x 768 resolution. All of the models feature the Bravia Engine 2, Advanced Contrast Enhancer, MPEG Noise Reduction, and a variety of screen formats and picture modes. So far no pricing details have been released, but if you want to take a closer look at the specs just hit the read link.
