Hi, I'm David Katzmaier from CNET, I'm at CES 2013. This is LG's booth. Now, at CES you see a lot of televisions around but behind me, is a unique take on TV. This is a sort of a deconstructive re-project television. This is a 100-inch laser TV, LG is calling it. There's a small projector right below the screen, this is about 22-inches from the screen. The unit comes with a screen and a little projector unit. You set it up at this fix distance, turn it on and walah you have a 100-inch television, right there. So this uses laser-projection technology. One of the advantages, increase life span, the bulb last about 3000 hours, I've been told. This TV has all the normal specs for LG's flat panel televisions, including 1080p resolution, it got the smart remote, it's got the voice control. It even got little speakers inside the projector, down here. The only thing it doesn't have is 3D, so if you want 3D, you might have to wait 'til next year's version. One of the downsides, traditional projection technology is screen brightness. This thing is suppose to have a 150 nits of light output, which is plenty for a moderately lit room. You can see below here, there is a little bit of a sound bar that is not included with the box. What is included however is the screen itself, it's gonna be very large box, the screen is included. The screen is about 0.8 inches thick so again, very thin, really slick form factor. And if projection's form factor, the two piece and the screen is kind of holding you back, this thing is a totally different alternative. Sits right in front of the room, that's a really neat take on television. Of course, one downside for all that technology is the price, I've been told it's gonna be $10,000. That hasn't been set yet. This product is gonna be coming out around March in the U.S. That's a quick look at LGs HECTO laser 100-inch TV, I'm David Katzmaier from CNET.
The 58-inch Panasonic TH-58PZ700U plasma HDTV offers superb image quality, although it costs more than just about any rear-projection big-screen TV.
At CES 2007, we take a look at the ViewSonic PJ258D Projector that can project movies from your ipod onto the big screen.
This 10-inch tablet developed by Fusion Garage takes a unique spin on home screen navigation and includes Android app support and a high-resolution display.
At CES 2011, Donald Bell takes a First Look at the Archos 101 Internet tablet, an Android-based Internet tablet with a 10-inch capacitive screen and unique design.
The 46-inch Vizio GV46L HDTV costs less than the big-screen LCD competition, but its picture quality isn't up to par with the company's other bargain efforts.
The 52-inch Vizio GV52LF has a hard time competing against similarly sized plasmas, although it's a bargain by big-screen LCD standards.
Panasonic's 54-inch TC-P54G10 offers superb image quality, plenty of features, and great value, making a strong bid for your big-screen buck.
The big-screened and affordable 17-inch Vaio E17 has lots of features, but no touchscreen, and a small trackpad. Does that kill its Windows 8 appeal?
For people craving a colossal flat-screen TV who don't want a plasma or a projector, the 70-inch Sharp LC-70LE73U series LED-based LCD offers very good picture quality, especially in bright rooms.
This week, Donald and Eric tackle the big ideas. Microsoft demos shoulder-mounted touch screen projectors, while Disney takes a decidedly low-tech route. We also look at a ball that can take 360 panoramic photos in one shot, advancements in harvesting energy from humans, the strength of your passwords, and a new spin on superhero teen shows.
