Philips and the “LED Pro” TV

Being a tech guru isn’t for the faint of heart. Many will call us lazy, good for nothing, society sapping individuals because all we care about is personal gratification. To some extent, they’re true. But we lovers of the gadget are so much deeper than that. I mean, we’re not dumb by any stretch. A perfect example is captured in all of the cryptic phrases and labels manufacturers conjur up. Things such as 1080p, WUXGA, HDMI, etc. mean absolutely nothing to the normal human. But as technology progresses these terms and analogies will only grow. The latest on the list of things to write a mental sticky-note for comes by way of Phillips and their “LED Pro” TVs.

LED Pro 9704 TV sets to be exact. The reason for lustful thoughts for these bad boys centers around the whole idea of independent lighting of the LED’s thanks to 224 individual LED segments. Those 224 segments allow the 9704’s to get all contrasty — up to 5,000,000 : 1. Pretty damn good for an LCD don’t you think? Of course, with the LCD/LED duo, power consumption is down 50% over traditional LCD’s without the LED goodness. Rounding out the feature set is the 200Hz “Clear LCD Technology”, Ambilight Spectra 3, 1ms response time, and two 15W audio channels split across 4 speakers.

Pricing isn’t too bad with the 40″ and 46″ sets going for $1,799 and $2,499 respectively. Anyone looking to splurge on their Christmas gift a little early…?
