I can see sitting very close to this set - within arms reach perhaps - guzzling beer - watching reruns of Seinfeld - and perhaps a movie.
Gizmodo Japan: Asahi DVD Beer Fridge : Gizmodo:
Jean Snow—The ultimate in bachelor pad accessories: it’s a TV, it plays DVDs, and it’s a beer fridge, all-in-one! You gotta love the higher-ups at Asahi Beer for coming up with this concept. Only thing is, you can’t buy it — it’s only available as a prize in Asahi’s latest sales campaign (the ad appeared in today’s issue of Tokyo Walker magazine). But just the thought of having one of these at home… It doesn’t really get better than this, does it?
Some nights I just make the roungs - I love the AQUOS. Even though I will never be able to afford one (not in the next few years anyways), the whole set just screams quality. 1080p? 2 inputs for HD. 1920x1080? Please god - let me have one soon.
AQUOS widescreen lcd television | LC-45GGD6U:
Sharp’s LC-45GD6U AQUOS™ is a breathtaking 45" widescreen HDTV1 that can easily enhance the decor of any family room, living room or den. The LC-45GD6U is the largest LC-TV on the market today (along with other 45" Sharp models), and it displays all content in full HD spec (1080p) resolution, the highest of the DTV resolutions. With a 16:9 aspect ratio, unbeatable resolution of 1920 x 1080 and vivid color purity, it is a next-generation TV to carry you into the high-definition future.
"Panasonic has introduced three new plasma and six new LCD TVs in Japan, all of which are in the VIERA line. Scheduled to be released on May 1st, the plasmas will be available in 50, 42 and 37 inch sizes, and the LCDs in 32, 26, 23 and 19 inch sizes. The most expensive set is 650,000 yen, and the cheapest 160,000 yen it'll let you guess which models those correspond to. A point of interest for the plasma panels is the new PEAKS driver, resulting in a pretty nice 3,000:1 contrast ratio. There wasn't any mention of PEAKS being used on the LCDs. Also, the commercial image character for the new VIERAs will be Koyuki (of Last Samurai? fame)."
I do like the black versus the silver one I have. Also the HDMI interface is a nice touch and HDMI tuner. I can't tell you how amazing my OLEVIA is for the price - so I'm anxious to see this baby in person.
"Syntax is preparing to launch another Olevia flat-screen LCD television, this one a 42-inch widescreen with a 1,366 by 768 pixel resolution and an 8ms response time (pretty decent, as these things go). The biggest thing, though, is that it's Syntax's first HDTV with a built-in ATSC and HDMI tuner, meaning it's effectively a plug-and-play solution (previous models required an external tuner). Expect to see the LT42HVi in June for around $3,700."
"The SunBrite 2010 is a super-bright all-weather LCD tv that supposedly stands up to any kind of weather and conditions. They even have a video of the unit getting doused with water while it is on. The 2010 Pro is twice as bright and comes with a standard internal heater with thermostat to keep it from freezing solid during the winter."
"We know what you're thinking. Why would I get just a 19" TV? If I'm getting a TV, I definitely want a big-screen. Sure, but what if you think of this as a computer monitor that doubles as a TV? Think about it... You set this beauty up in your office and when you want a break away from the kids, the house 'noise' and work, you fire up the TV!"
I bought the 30" Syntax I have now based on this review - and to tell you the truth - there is nothing but great accurate information in this review.
"Syntax Groups was at one time best known for its motherboards. But no more â€“ their entry into the consumer electronics field has many other companies scaling back plans, as Syntax in its first year has already captured approximately 5% of the North American LCD-TV market. Letâ€™s see what is making the Olevia brand so successful.
"Syntax has just announced their newest Olevia LCD TV model, the 26â€³ LT26HVE HDTV set, and based on the given features and pricing, I think they could have another hit on their handsâ€¦
The new Olevia LT26HVE is a 26â€³ hi-def LCD TV, sporting a 1280x768 resolution (15:9, like the 27â€³ and 30â€³ units), 750:1 contrast ratio, 700nits brightness, a 170-degree view angle, and 12ms pixel response time. That should make for a great smaller-room HD experience."
