Skinny KDL-40ZX1 TV from Sony
But at least this one has made me sit up and put pen-to-paper….well, finger to keyboard at any rate.
This new gogglebox from Sony is (at the moment)Â the thinnest LCD HDTV.
MeasuringÂ at a size 0 model-like 9.9mm thick the KDL-40ZX1 nearly halves the depth of Hitachi’s former champ (likely to be hitting the lemon-juice and two-fingers down the throat diet) and comes within a fag-papers width of Pioneer’s Kuro concept (9mm).
Into this remarkable frame it squeezes such nice things as LED backlighting, a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, 120Hz MotionFlow tech, x.v.Color and BRAVIA Engine 2 image processing (this is pretty much like having the actors perform in your living room behind a 40-inch picture frame).
Only one HDMI in is directly on the screen itself.
All of the other HDMI, USB, etc component inputs are relegated to a base station.
All this skinny lovliness can be yours for a found-underneath-your-sofa 490,000 yen ($4,474) and will be at your local Japanese (if you live in Japan) tv vendor on November 10th.
