With CES fast approaching, we're sure to see tons of last minute additions as firm's look to showcase their gadgetry to the world, and now Mustek is doing just that. More commonly known for its ho hum cameras, digiframes, and PMPs, the company has just announced that it will start selling its own self-branded lineup of LCD HDTVs, and if everything goes as planned, will have demo units on display in just a few weeks. Aiming for the same value-conscious crowd that Vizio seems to have wrapped around its finger, the 42-inch LTV-4210, 32-inch LTV3210, and 27-inch LTV2710 should each hit well below more prestigious brands in terms of pricing. The low- and mid-range models each sport a 1,366 x 768 resolution, 1200:1 contrast ratio, 6.5-millisecond response time, and "built-in surround sound speakers." The flagship 42-inch flavor boasts full 1080p support, HDMI, integrated NTSC / ATSC tuners, dual 10-watt speakers, a 176-degree viewing angle, 550 cd/m2 brightness, and then borrows the other specs from the less-featured siblings. Of course, the actual quality (and pricing) of the panels is still yet to be seen, but thankfully, that sneak peek should come sooner rather than later.
