Sony's 20" combo

Ben Drawbaugh

Is it me or is Sony always so close, yet so far away? Today they announce the MFM-HT205, which is a 20" LCD that doubles as a TV.  At 1680x1050 the new LCD has more than enough resolution to be considered a HDTV.

The far away part is the lack of ATSC tuner and no HDMI input. With less than 3 years left to the analog shutoff  and the crazy HDMI requirements of some of todays hardware, it amazes me that they would bother. Plus how good can NTSC look when scaled that much, I supposed it would be fine in some PIP situations.

Considering the $900 price and features it is still going to be a great addition to anyones desk.
