The problem with Microsoft Surface is that it looks too much like fun. NEC has the right idea: affix some trolley wheels, brush some aluminum, give it a sedate name like "X-info Table" and then maybe, just maybe, traditional businesses will start buying into the idea. The specs, however, are easi...

Bargain LCDs are selling like hotcakes, but apparently folks are still buying the higher-end models too. Just a few weeks after announcing its new A series, Sharp is now releasing another new selection of sets, the AQUOS D 10 series. Ranging in size from 32- to 52-inches, the new LCDs have similar...

It's no AQUOS, but then again, no member of the fresh SB series pretends to be. Sharp's largest player in its new "entry-level" family was taken for a spin over at PC Mag, and all in all, they came away quite impressed. The 52-inch LC-52SB55U ditches that 120Hz technology (that we're not too fond o...

Money's tight these days, we get that. But we also get that your aging CRT is in dire need of replacing, and Westinghouse's sub-$2,500 TX-52F480S looks mighty fine on paper for the price. Thankfully, the cats over at UltimateAVmag were able to secure the 52-inch LCD HDTV for a review, and it proved...

We know, CES 2008 seems like it took place ages ago, but it was the springboard for a slew of new Toshiba LCD HDTVs. The flagship line (Cinema Series REGZA XF550) just so happened to include a luscious 52-inch flagship named 52XF550U, and the lucky souls over at Sound & Vision managed to get on...

Like your flat panels flat, we mean, really flat? Then check this, Sharp's prototype LCD which jams a 100,000:1 contrast ratio into a 52-inch LCD display only 20-mm (0.78-inches) thick. Right, we're talking LCD, not OLED. In fact, the entire TV measures just 29-mm (1.14-inches) at its thickest poi...

We know that many consumers like their flat panels big and cheap even at the expense of quality. No doubt then, Vizio's new "full-HD" 52-inch LCD rumored to sell at Costco next month will be a hit. The $2,200 sets are even said to carry an LG.Philips panel according to DigiTimes' Taiwanese supply ch...
