Akai -- for a
minute few months there, we assumed you were just passed out cold or something. Straight from Australia, the outfit has revealed the L8 family of LCD TVs: the 19-inch L819DDVD, 22-inch L822DDVD and 42-inch L842DDFD. The latter unit gets a full-blown 1080p panel, while the other two provide a 1,440 x 900 and 1,680 x 1,050 resolution, respectively. Each set comes stocked with a built-in HD digital tuner along with HDMI / S-Video / composite / VGA inputs; the smaller two even include an integrated DVD player and a 3-in-1 card reader, though apparently the big boy is too sophisticated for those toys. Grab 'em now if you're Down Under for $599.95, $699.96 and $1,699.95 in order of mention.
