NEC launches full-HD plasma TV

The company has introduced three new models to its plasma HDTV range, including a full-HD model which displays at a 1920x1080 resolution.

NEC Thursday launched its first full-HD plasma TV, the 50-inch PXT-50FHDP1.

The PXT operates at a 1920x1080 progressive scan resolution with a 100hz refresh rate, and boasts a 30,000:1 contrast ratio.

The RRP of this model is $3,499, and other sizes will be released in the coming months.

Also on Thursday, NEC launched two new models from its HD plasma range. The 42-inch PXT42XD3 and the 50-inch widescreen PXT50XD3.

While also featuring a 30,000:1 contrast ratio, these models only operate at 1024x768 and 1365x768 respectively.

But they are also a lot cheaper, with the PXT4 model retailing at $1,599, and the PXT5 model at $2,199.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
