Toshibahas unveiled three Cell Regza LCD TVs for the company's fall line-up, all of which promise some spectacular imagery but will have some hefty price tags.
The Cell Regza collection will now include the 55-inch 55X2 and55XE2 and 46-inch 46XE2. All three models boast 2D to 3D conversion, a 3TB hard drive, and 3D "Super Resolution" technology, which is basically a high-definition 3D picture.
Along with compatibility with the Opera browser, connectivity is key with support for HDMI (potentially to a Blu-ray player), DLNA, LAN, and up to eight HDDs via USB. Users can actually record programming from up to eight separate channels simultaneously, either to the internal hard drive or directly to a Blu-ray disc in standard recording mode.
The 55X2 is the flagship of the series with 9,000,000:1 contrast ratio, a 1,000cd/m2 maximum luminance, and a 240Hz scan rate.
All three will be available in Japan only (so far) in October. Pricing starts at ¥600,000 ($6,830) for the 46-inch edition and goes up to ¥700,000 ($7,969) for the 55XE2 and a staggering ¥1,000,000 ($11,384) for the 55X2. It better feel like the actors are actually in your living room if you're going to pay those prices.
