Asustek entering into LCD Television market

By Justin Mann on December 16, 2005, 11:41 AM
Asustek is expanding their horizons and introducing their first set of LCD Televisions, in what will become a continuing series. Looking for a spot in the high-end market, Asustek is introducing their TLW32001, at 32 inches, at just under $1900 USD. At first, Asustek will only be releasing product in Taiwan, and has not yet given any release dates for products outside Taiwan. Though, with an incredible amount of demand for high end displays in places like Japan and the U.S. It's a sure bet to say it won't be long. The LCD, while not overly impressive, sounds pretty decent.

”Using a Sharp TFT LCD TV panel, the TLW32001 features a resolution of 1366×768, a brightness of 500cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 1200:1. The TV also has a 6ms response time and a viewing angle of 170 degrees, as well as including an HDMI (High Definition Media Interface), according to the company’s press release.”
Early next year they will start offering 42 inch models as well.

Seems like a nice lcd. The 6ms response is also a nice plus. Shouldn't have ghosting. I guess this would be a "720p display" then if it's 1366x768?Hdmi is a big plus as well. Price seems a bit steep to me though.

While its great news for the consumer to have yet another company making LCD TV's, Asustek won't get far with that pricing. Now if they were to have a 42' model for $1900 then we'd have a winner!

Aus really trying to be pioneers in this feild. The 2ms response time in the more advanced monitors give hope to the lcd market becoming better.

IMHO, the more players that enter the field, the better it will be for all of us...pushing quality up and prices down. I just love competition. :)
