Samsung Needle Slim LED TV

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2009

Samsung Needle Slim LED TVLike a young gal with a modeling contract, LED TVs just keep getting unhealthily thinner. It won’t be long before TVs are little more than sheets of paper on our walls. The Samsung Needle Slim model is a 40″ full HD LED backlight TV that measures just 3mm thick.

That’s pretty impressive when you consider that this 120Hz LCD panel has a 5,000:1 contrast ratio as well. It isn’t available to the masses just yet, but maybe Samsung will roll it out sometime soon.

TV ArmorWhen you spend a grand or more on a new flat screen HDTV, you want to protect it right? Kids are the main threat, with their sticky fingers and their fondness for throwing things indoors. The other threat is you with your sticky fingers and your Wii addiction.

So how do you protect your TV? With TV Armor. It’s a simple invention that protects your LCD or Plasma TV from cracks, scratches, dirty slimy hands and more. It does this by covering the screen with a thin durable acrylic shield. A 1/4″ thick layer of optical-grade plastic to be precise. It won’t interfere with picture quality either.

Posted in Netgear by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2009

Netgear Digital Entertainer Live Streams PC Media to your TVNetgear’s Digital Entertainer EVA2000 is perfect for those who don’t have a home theater PC or a networked console. The device will stream all of your PC media onto your TV. It connects to the TV via HDMI/composite and to your router via ethernet and it will stream a bunch of codecs from your PC or networked storage, as well as load media from a USB drive or stream YouTube from the web.

There is a catch of course. You need to purchase PlayOn for $40 if you want to stream video services like Hulu, Netflix and CBS from a computer. That takes the price from $150 for the Netgear Digital Entertainer up to $190.

Grundig’s latest TVs offer USB recording

Posted in Television by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2009

Grundig’s latest TVs offer USB recordingGrundig may be looking to replace TiVo with their latest TV models. Several of the models will incorporate USB-recording technology. You can use a standard USB flash drive or external hard drive as a personal video recorder or PVR. The catch is that you can only watch the recorded content on a compatible Grundig set.

8GB of storage should hold up to 4 hours of programs at normal resolution, but for HD recordings that number goes down. Content without copy protection can be viewed on any Grundig TV with the USB option, but encrypted channels can only be viewed on the TV where they were recorded on. The USB drives can be fully or partially formatted to suit the USB recording function and still allow other data to be stored on the drive.

The price is only £79 and games are priced at only a few pounds. They are aiming to have iGAME FAMILY being popular for Christmas of 2009.
