Gift Guide: Pioneer Elite KURO PRO 60-inch TV

Homebody, Cost No Object Pioneer Elite KURO PRO-151FD 60-inch Plasma HDTV For devout videophiles who don't go the projector route, there's still nothing that satisfies like plasma, and for plasmas, there's nothing that compares to a Pioneer Elite. The top-of-the-line KURO PRO-151FD represents the highest quality TV-watching experience possible (and a price tag to match it, at 6,500 clams). Natu...

Why You Shouldn't Clean Your TV With Windex

Inevitably, your fancy HDTV and flat-panel monitor are going to collect dust. But how should you clean them? Many people go the Windex route, while others splurge for the pricey cleaning products sold at BestBuy and the like. Truth is, however, the best way to clean your LCD and plasma screens is with a soft cloth and water, says Consumer Reports. The chemicals in Windex and other glass cleaner...

Bang & Olufsen's 103-inch $130,000 BeoVision Plasma

Plasma's dying, huh? Go and tell that to Bang & Olufsen. Just in case the 50- and 65-inch versions of the BeoVision 4 HDTV weren't expansive enough, the high-end home cinema outfitter has just pushed out news of an all new addition: the 103-inch BeoVision 4-103. If that number immediately rings a bell, here's a cookie. The 103-inch Panasonic TH-103PF9 panel is indeed the exact one used here,...

Panasonic's Giant Plasma TV Repurposed as Multitouch Air Hockey Table

With VIZIO and Pioneer jumping out of the plasma game, we can totally foresee sales of Panasonic's 103-inch PDP skyrocketing. All kidding aside, a startup arcade would be ludicrous to not shove one of these into the center of the action. What you're looking at above is a mutltitouch air hockey table, made possible by Panny's ginormous plasma and a U-Touch overlay from uicentric. The table was on...

Pioneer to Stop Making TVs By 2010

Bad news Kuro fans, the rumors were true and Pioneer is leaving the TV manufacturing business. On the upside, the restructuring deadline is March 2010, so a predicted net 130 billion yen ($1.44 billion) loss shouldn't be enough to get between you and the plasma HDTV of your dreams. The company's U.S. and U.K. plants are shutting down by April and February of this year, respectively, and product d...

LG to Introduce Netflix-enabled HDTVs

Yup, it's official. LG will be showcasing the world's first Netflix-enabled HDTVs at CES this week. The so-called Broadband HDTVs will arrive in plasma and LCD flavors, though exact screen sizes and model names have yet to be disclosed. They'll arrive with Netflix streaming software baked right in, meaning that no external set-top-box will be required to suck down Watch Instantly material. Best ...

Plasma Plant Turns Your Garbage into Electricity

The transmutation of garbage into energy is a particularly modern form of alchemy. We've seen it done on a smaller scale in the past, but now a company called Geoplasma is assembling the country's first plasma refuse plant in St. Lucie County, Florida. Scheduled to go online by 2011, the plant will process 1,500 tons of garbage a day, adding 60 megawatts to the power grid -- enough energy to pow...

Salespeople Push LCD TVs More Than Plasmas, Study Finds

For some strange reason, we can't say we're surprised by the latest J.D. Power and Associates report. Maybe it's how LCD HDTVs seem to be highlighted in most retail locations, or maybe it's just because the negative burn-in stigma attached to earlier PDPs has yet to wear off. Whatever the case, said research firm has just produced an article claiming that "retail electronics salespersons are r...

Pioneer to Stop Making Plasma TVs

In the battle for thin-panel television supremacy, the plasma display for many years has been the superior choice, relying on individual pockets of excitable gas to produce bright colors and rich blacks. But ever since the upstart LCD panel display came into the HDTV market, it's been gradually nipping at plasma's heels, and, after years of refinements, has finally started to offer similar visu...

Pioneer Unveils Super-Thin, High-Contrast Plasma TVs

Today, Pioneer showed off two significant concept models for its flat-panel plasma TV product line. Under the banner of Project KURO, a sci-fi-sounding internal anthem for change, Pioneer unveiled both the thinnest flat panel TV and a flat panel that boasts an unparalleled contrast ratio. To give you a better perspective, one TV has a screen frame 9mm thick (thinner than the iPhone!), as oppos...

World's Largest TV Measures 150 Inches

Right now it seems Sony is the only television manufacturer interested in making things smaller and thinner than the competition, releasing their super-skinny OLED set as a preview of things to come. Just about everyone else is focused on the "bigger is better" wars, and they're heating things up again with the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show right around the corner, where Panasonic will leap ahe...

With picture quality so pristine that, from 3.5-feet you can see the film grain -- but not the pixels -- this TV will leave anyone speachless....

Just Tell Me What to Get: Home Theater

We're asked all the time what constitutes a great, but affordable home theater package. Unfortunately, 'affordable' can mean very different things to different people. So, we've put together two excellent home theater set-ups for two different budgets, both of which are still firmly planted in the realm of reality. In other words, you probably won't need a winning lottery ticket to afford the pay...

Samsung's 50-inch beauty looks great on any wall.

Projector Down the Pants

While we're in no way condoning shoplifting, you've got to give this guy some credit . . . if only for sheer persistence. This surveillance video shows a young Australian man trying to stuff a gargantuan TV projector down his shorts -- eventually even getting on his knees to complete the deed -- and waltzing out of the store unnoticed with his accomplice. Details on the tape are next to none, s...
