It's not quite as sexy as that 56-inch 3840 x 2160 LCD they were showing at CES this year, but Westinghouse's new LVM-47w1 47-inch 1080p LCD should make many a World Cup fan or budget home theater enthusiast very happy this summer. The display has a whole bunch of inputs: HDMI, two DVI w/HDCP, VGA and dual component, and features a 6.5ms refresh rate and 1200:1 contrast ration. Apparently the Westinghouse backlighting isn't stellar, so you might be sacrificing a bit of color, but you really can't beat the $3,000 price tag. No word on when this will be dropping, but we sure wouldn't mind it before Friday's kickoff.
