When you go into those big bog retailers and look at all the TV manufacturers, there are always name brands and a handful of companies that you may not have heard of before. However, more often than not, these lesser known brands offer up comparable performance to the name brands at a substantial savings.
Where am I going with this? Well Scepter has introduced a 27” 16:9 LCD HDTV (X270BV-FHD
) that has some very good performance measurable with an attractive MSRP. The TV features full 1080p performance, 100,000:1 contrast, 3 HDMI ports, USB and PC connections and 5ms refresh. The model can be purchased from Newegg, Sears, Target and Costco for an MSRP of $449. With that MSRP, there is a good chance this TV will be retailing at or below $399 right out of the gate. It appears to me to be an ideal gaming TV for a bedroom or office based on it size, price and features. Check out the image below and the full specs here
Sceptre Breaks New Ground in Television Space with its First-Ever 27-inch LCD HDTV
New television features rapid 5 ms response time, 100,000:1 contrast ratio and multiple HDMI and USB ports in one ultra-slim, lightweight unit
City of Industry, Calif. - (April 26, 2010) – Sceptre, world class manufacturers of superior performance TV and PC monitors, has just announced the newest family member to its line of high-quality, technologically advanced and designed televisions – its first-ever 27-inch LCD HDTV, which can also double as a PC monitor.
Featuring industry-impressive 100,000:1 contrast ratio and ultra-fast 5 ms response time, these widescreen, super slim units pack a powerful punch, especially with the integration of not one, not two, but three HDMI ports for expanded functionality, allowing users to connect multiple audio/video sources like DVD players, personal computers, AV receivers and video game consoles for the ultimate home entertainment experience.
“Not only do the on-screen images look stunningly crystal clear and flawless, the unit itself also adds beauty and personality to any home décor,” said Cathy Chou, vice president of operations, Sceptre. “Available in a sleek black finish, these units enhance rather than detract from a home’s aesthetic appeal, unlike bulkier units on the market.”
In addition to the three HDMI ports, the integrated USB port allows users to conveniently view digital photos and listen to digital music. These ports are located in two areas, on the side of the monitor and back, to allow easy accessibility and quick connection/disconnection.
