In a recurring theme at CES over the past few years, some large TV vendor is sure to outdo the previous year’s record of largest television set. This year it’s Panasonic who have announced a 152″ Full HD 3D Plasma display. Yes, 152 diagonal inches!

This is a 4096 x 2160 pixel panel that uses something called a “HD x 2 frame sequential method” for displaying discrete HD images for the left and right eyes. This is the same method uses in 3D theaters.

Review: TVClean LCD/Screen roller cleaner

tvcleanIf you have a big-screen LCD or Plasma TV and/or computer monitors, then eventually you will need to clean them. However, you can’t just use a household glass cleaner and/or an abrasive cleaning cloth or paper towel. Although your cloth may seem smooth, it’s not, at least not to a TV screen. Using those can lead to micro-scratches that will lead to a hazy screen.

Now sprays and microfiber cloths do exist that are safe for LCD screens, but it does take time to use those – spray and wipe and polish again. The TVClean makes this process at least twice as fast by using a roller. However, it’s not just a single lint-styled roller. It is a 2-part roller, with an adhesive roller and a (blue) transfer roller that picks up the particles and transfers it to the adhesive roll. Technologically, the blue roller is similar to what LCD manufacturers use to clean those screens before they box it up for sale.

Bang & Olufsen 103-inch Plasma HDTV

103-inch B&O Plasma HDTV

Bang & Olufsen have launched their new very top-of-the-line plasma HDTV coming in with a screen size of 103-inches, making it one of the biggest on the market today and with Bang & Olufsen you know you’re getting quality… and that you’re going to have to pay through the nose for it.

The BeoVision 4, to give it is proper title, sits comfortably on the floor when not in use and as soon as you want to power on, it will raise itself off the floor to the optimal viewing position and mysteriously grow its 10-channel Integrated BeoLab loudspeaker out of nowhere, bringing it up to screen level, a process which reverses when it’s put into standby or switched off. Seemingly the ultimate couch potato system, the Beo5 remote can be programmed to control equipment from all over the house from the basic use of AV equipment, right up to closing your curtains or covering your pool over.

If you’re after one, you better order quick as there is a 3-4 month waiting list because every one is built to order with customer specifications and installed specially at every location. As for pricing, the floor model comes in at $111,000 the wall-mounted (no motorized stand) version comes in at $93,000 – providing you can still afford a wall to put it on.

Powered TV Mount – Programmable & Remote Controlled

The T2 powered TV mount is not only programmable and has a remote control but will automatically tilt to your desired angle when you turn your TV on. It can tilt from 0° to 13° downward, fits most flat panel TVs from 40″ to 60″ weighing up to 150 lbs.

If your TV is mounted higher than eye level, then you’ll need to have it tilt downwards to reduce the glare and reflection, especially if you’re reclined while watching TV. And when the TV is turned off, it retracts and tilts back to just 3.3″ away from the way.

Holiday Gift Ideas 2008: TVs!

Ok, so you just got a TiVo from the last suggestion, but now you’ve got to watch all of that recorded material on something good. No, something great. Something big. Something in a flat-screen: LCD or Plasma!

Both LCDs and Plasmas have come way down in price over the last few years. After all, you can find deals for 42″ screens for well under $1000 now.

We like the 52″ LCD Samsung pictured, but you can get your choice of LCD or Plasma. If you can afford it, then try to get a 1080p TV and heck if you have the room, get something that is at least 37″!
