Sony confirms 3D Bravia LCD HDTVs in the works with Blu-ray, PS3 support

Sony has confirmed its entry into the 3D HDTV space, issuing a formal statement regarding a line of Bravia HDTVs in that are in the works. The 3D LCD displays will be based on sequential frame display and an active shutter glass system with those compatible funky, yet horribly annoying, 3D glasses. Even cooler is the fact that Sony plans to incorporate said 3D technology into the Playstation 3, its Vaio notebook line, and its Blu-ray disc products. Check out the official video above.

Toshiba 46-inch SV670U LED-backlit LCD HDTV gets reviewed

46sv670u.jpgThe prolific CNET reviewers have taken the 46-inch Toshiba SV670U LED-backlit LCD HDTV to task in their laboratories and given its cost, it looks like a good bet. The 46-inch set costs less than most sets using LED backlighting with local dimming, yet still manages plasma-like black levels, accurate color, and can separate its antiblurring and dejudder processing. The 240 Hz set also has plenty of connectivity options including 4 HDMI ports and a PC input, plus adds some silver into the usual plain black design of most other high-end LCD models. On the negative side, the 46SV670U suffers from some blooming, a poor off-angle performance, and a bit of an overactive backlight. But when all things were considered, including the relatively low price point, the Toshiba 46SV670U LED-backlit LCD HDTV scored a 3.5 out of a possible 5 stars from CNET.

24-inch AOC 2436Vx 1080p monitor gets a nice $220 price tag

aoc-2436vw.jpgFor $220 I wouldn't mind grabbing an AOC 2436Vx 24-inch 1080p monitor. Specs include a 5 millisecond response time, 300 nits of brightness, 60, 000:1 contrast ratio, and DVI and VGA plug-ins, so they aren't the best we've seen. But the price seems to be right in our current economy, and with a 49 Watt power consumption you'll be doing your part for the planet as well.
