240 Hz and Beyond Anderson SC

There are multiple ways of dealing with twice the number of frames with 120 Hz TVs. The simplest solution is to just double each frame (Figure 2). All 120 Hz TVs, though, have motion interpolation. A video camera is just like a regular camera: It takes a series of still images. These are played back by your TV fast enough so they seem like motion to your brain.

Aquatic AV Anderson SC

The cabinets of the 17-inch and 8.5-inch sets are sealed except for a coaxial DC power jack on the side. Seal up this jack, and the TV can be completely submerged; the company showed me a video in which the 17-inch model operates while fully underwater. Even without the jack sealed, the TV can deal with any bathroom mishap or Texas gulleywasher.

Flat-Panel TV Mounts, Lifts, Covers, and Hide-Aways Anderson SC

Auton takes an entirely different track with its In-Vis-O-Trak and Shadow Trak. Instead of keeping the flat-panel TV inside a frame and rolling up the artwork, a concealed rack-and-pinion mechanism moves the entire picture out of the way. The In-Vis-O-Trak works with recess-mount TVs, while the Shadow Trak provides a wood-frame box that fits around a surface-mounted TV.

Hitachi UT37X902 Review Anderson SC

The UT37X902 has a 120Hz frame rate and features Hitachi’s Reel120 technology, designed to reduce judder in film sources. The monitor’s basic 120Hz implementation uses black-frame insertion to reduce motion blur, and I found it to be very successful with faster-moving sports and text crawls.

Horgan Becket Media Cart Anderson SC

“The solutions for flat-screens are lacking in how they deal with the space around them,” says partner Greg Horgan. “The design and details of the cart are open and honest, and it engages the space around the TV. It’s not just about the flat-screen.”

How to Treat a TV Anderson SC

The male and female species are wildly different in how they communicate, how they interpret a conversation—and how they watch television. "He's the channel surfer," says Debbie of her husband Robert, a former music industry executive. "He's constantly moving, so we end up watching TV in different locations." Debbie's TV-viewing habits involve watching several TV shows simultaneously. If she wan...

JVC LT-46SL89 Review Anderson SC

The LT-46SL89 is a lot better looking in person than in pictures. The hard stuff, like de-interlacing 1080i, and picking up the 3:2 sequence with 1080i material (for when you watch movies on cable/satellite), the LT-46SL89 does fairly well over HDMI and component. In fact, JVC is one of the only companies on the market that consistently passes these tests.

LG SL90 Series LCD TVs Anderson SC

To an ensure a prettier picture when you're actually watching it, LG has implemented a number of performance enhancements, including a special film lamination surface and -- the thing that really caught my attention -- an advanced Picture Wizard that doesn't quite quite compare with a full blown ISF calibration, but nonetheless blows the standard picture controls on most TVs out of the water.

Mitsubishi LT-52149 Review Anderson SC

The generous connection panel features four HDMI and three component video inputs, as well as a CableCARD slot and dual RF inputs to access the internal tuners, with the TV Guide Daily program guide. A side-panel USB port allows for easy viewing of JPEG photos. The HDMI inputs accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24 signals, and they are the only means of inputting digital audio to the sound bar.

Natuzzi Durini Anderson SC

If that sounds familiar, Natuzzi’s Durini wall unit, which can host any size flat-screen TV, is artfully designed to accommodate your inner neat freak. The storage options are endless: Combine a chest of drawers with horizontal and vertical cabinets, storage cubes and small and large shelving pieces in any arrangement that strikes your fancy.

Panasonic 2009 Anderson SC

The top model Z1 wireless 54" plasma set features THX certification and a slender 1" cabinet depth, receiving its video signals via 60GHz millimeter radio waves from the companion set top box. An ardent Blu-ray supporter and developer of many key Blu-ray technologies, Panasonic bowed three new BD players, including the DMP-BD60, DMP-BD80 and DMP-BD70V, the latter model being the world’s first (and probably the last) dual VHS/Blu-ray player – no pricing as of yet on any of the trio.

Panasonic TC-P46G10 Review Anderson SC

Like the 800-series I reviewed last year, the G10 is THX-certified, and has a mode so named in the menu. Selecting this gets you most of the way toward the accurate-looking display I always recommend. The color points shift, as does the color temperature and a few other settings. It’s not perfect and still needs some adjusting with a setup DVD/BD.

Panasonic TH-50PZ800U Anderson SC

Panasonic plasmas offer a great starting point. Rarely underwhelming, Panasonic's displays are usually aimed towards the mainstream market, with performance to match. That is to say, good, but rarely great. To say I was intrigued by the idea of these two companies working together would be putting it mildly.

Panasonic TH-65VX100U Review Anderson SC

The first thing you notice about the TH-65VX100U is how it looks. While not a deciding factor for some, the aesthetics of the Premiere line are noticeable step up from Panasonic's standard line. The brushed metal finish looks and feels very high end. A good start. The remote, not that most buyers of this product will use it, has discrete input buttons for all the inputs.

Philips 7000 Series 120Hz LCDs Anderson SC

The new 7000 Series includes four models that range in size from 32 to 52 inches. All four models feature 120Hz technology and a super-low 2-millisecond response time to help reduce motion blur, as well as Philips’ Perfect Natural Motion technology to eliminate film judder.

Pioneer PRO-150FD Anderson SC

Pioneer Elite plasma TVs have long been favorites of critical viewers and specialist home theater retailers. Their latest offerings, under a new Elite Kuro moniker and available in 50” and 60” sizes feature full 1080p resolution and a slew of upscale features, including home A/V networking connectivity and the promise of better visual quality by way of better deep black picture performance.

Pioneer PRO-151FD KURO Plasma Anderson SC

Aesthetically, the PRO-151FD differs from the PRO-150FD we reviewed in no way that is readily apparent. There is now a tiny Pioneer logo at the bottom left, but that's about it. It is still a stylishly minimalist black cabinet. The menus now have a decidedly KURO theme to them. The remote, too, has had a bit of a makeover, and now looks more like something that should come with a $7,500 product.

Plasma TVs Anderson SC

The FR-T6374's most interesting features are its 1,920-by-1,080-pixel resolution, which is still somewhat rare for a plasma set, and the fact that it conforms to the latest HDMI 1.3 specification, which means it can take advantage of 1.3's xvYCC and Deep Color capabilities, for better color rendition from soon-to-come xvYCC-encoded high-definition material.

Power Saving TV Features Anderson SC

Have you embraced your TV’s power-saving features? It seems like every TV manufacturer is trying to sell us on its products’ energy efficiency, mostly by touting the TVs’ power-saving features. Be warned, though: Not all power-saving modes are created equal, so it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the different options to know exactly what you’re getting. read more

Professional Pedigree Anderson SC

The company has introduced two LCD flat-panels under the Multeos moniker; both claim professional status. The 46-inch model and the 40-incher tested here are full-on 1080p high-definition specification and are available in three versions. The base version includes connections for component analog and PC-type RGBHV signals, while the mid-line offering adds additional connections including a single HDMI digital video input.

Samsung 9000 Series Anderson SC

In one of the coolest unveils at the show, Samsung has announced the 9000 series, which is only 0.3 inches thick. It will be LED edge lit, 3D capable, and have built in wireless. Read on for more details.

Samsung LN-46A750 LCD HDTV Anderson SC

Touch of Color is exactly what the design of this LCD has; a just barely noticeable tint of red along the edge of the bezel. I think it looks classy and stylish, though keep in mind I still have t-shirts I wore in high school. If there is a little light behind the TV, it really pops. On Samsung's website the color is really accentuated. In real life it is a lot more subtle, and that's why it works.

Samsung LN46A950 Review Anderson SC

The LN46A950 isn’t Samsung’s first LCD flat-panel with LED backlighting, but this latest series improves upon earlier offerings by combining 120 Hz screen refresh with interpolation (Auto Motion Plus) and multi-zone LED backlighting (Smart LED). It’s also packed with a variety of step-up features, including LAN connectivity, along with an optional Windows Media Extender box.

Samsung UN46B8000 Review Anderson SC

The UN46B8000 uses LED side lighting, which means that the LEDs that create the light you see are on the sides of the TV and aim inwards. They shoot across a dimpled plastic surface that directs the light towards your eyeballs. Most laptops work on the same principle. While you concede a tiny bit in the width of the display (hardly noticeable), you gain a lot more in an almost total lack of depth.

Sony KDL-46XBR8 Review Anderson SC

With video content, the XBR8 performs best with the DRC Mode off. Mode 1 is better for 1080i that was sourced from film (like watching a movie on cable/satellite), though there are still some artifacts. Mode 2 seems to get the 3:2 sequence perfect, but is made for 480i content, and can't be used with HD. The component input fares about the same with the processing tests as HDMI, but has slightly less horizontal resolution.

Sony KDL-XBR10 Edgelit LED TVs Anderson SC

In addition to its sleek form, this new top-shelf 1080p line offers Motionflow 240Hz technology, RS-232 control, and an Ethernet port to access Sony’s BRAVIA Internet Video content, which includes BRAVIA Internet Widgets, YouTube, Amazon video-on-demand, and (sometime this fall) Netflix. These TVs are also DLNA-compliant and support streaming of music, photo, and movie files.

Sony XEL-1 Anderson SC

Sony describes the XEL-1 as a display made for executive desktops. Given that it has the footprint of a hardcover book and a screen smaller than a laptop’s, that sounds about right. It’s too small to work as a bedroom TV or even in most kitchens. Even so, Sony hasn’t skimped on features for the littlest big TV. The XrossMediaBar, first found on the PSP and now featured in most Sony products, allows easy navigation between features, inputs, and channels.

The Definitive Guide on How to Buy an HDTV Anderson SC

Shopping for a new TV can be quite daunting. Size is one of the main ways to narrow down your options. You can always go bigger than you think you can. Many people upgrading from an old 36-inch CRT thought that a 42-inch flat-panel was going to be a big step up. In reality, the 4x3 area of the 16x9 (widescreen) flat-panel was roughly the same size.

Toshiba 46LX177 46-inch LCD TV Anderson SC

Toshiba is among the first to produce an LCD flat-panel TV that features twice the normal screen refresh rate—120 frames per second instead of 60. The intent is to improve visual detail in scenes with fast motion, which has been a weak spot for LCD TVs. Toshiba dubs this technology Clear Frame, and it’s available on the company’s top-of-the-line Cinema Regza 1080p sets.

Toshiba CELL TV Anderson SC

What can't a processor like that do in your TV? The most obvious is more advanced scaling/processing for lower resolution signals, like SD TV and internet video. Toshiba is claiming it will make all SD indistinguishable from HD, which is hyperbole at best. You also get 2D to 3D processing, video phone capabilities, Vudu and Netflix streaming, a 1 terabyte hard drive, Wi-Fi and a built in BD player.

Toshiba SV670 Series of LED-Based HDTVs Anderson SC

The SV670 TVs use a full-array LED backlight design, with local-dimming technology that allows for outstanding contrast and deep blacks. These models also use Toshiba’s ClearScan 240 technology, which combines a 120Hz refresh rate with a scanning backlight to produce a 240Hz effect. Resolution+ technology is also on board to improve detail with lower-resolution sources like SDTV and DVD.

Toshiba’s Cinema Regza 46XF550U Anderson SC

The set’s picture quality depends on finding the right combination of adjustment settings, and, as expected, the default mode (Sports) is really only intended to provide the absolute maximum perceived brightness on the showroom demo floor, and it produces a horribly over-bright, garish picture that is devoid of detail on both bright white and dark gray scenes.

Triple Play from Bell'O Anderson SC

This three-shelf piece offers versatility and attractiveness wrapped in one. The unit comes with different mount options: rear-mount, wall-mount or standalone. Variety is just what I wanted, and the great part is that you can change your mind with this one without having to buy another piece of furniture.

TV Stands and Media Racks Anderson SC

Many TV stands offer a special compartment for the center speaker that’s either open or covered with grille cloth. Make sure your particular speaker will fit in the space provided. The more contemporary and open a rack design is, the more important it becomes to have a cable-management system that helps minimize the appearance of unsightly A/V wires.
