Honeywell HDTV?" Sad to say, the answer is "yes, really," and it fared about as terribly as you probably expected it to. The 42-inch Altura MLX, which is formally known as the MT-HWJCT42B2AB, was recently critiqued by the crew over at CNET, and honestly, all's that really important is the summary. The relatively low price ($1,064 MSRP) and accurate primary colors were minor wins, but the light blacks, incorrect gamma, impossible-to-turn-off dejudder processing, poor off-angle performance, no backlight control and a bevy of other niggles planted it squarely in the "mediocre" category. In other words: "Next?"
