byd:sign is known for delivering products much cheaper than the market. So it is no surprise to see a 42 inch 1080p LCD set for just €1840 - thats about freakin' $2,220. According to Diamou of AkihabaraNews.com it is less than its competitor from Sharp Aquos line by Â290 ( thats $350 ). And now lets get down to specs: 1000:1 contrast ratio, brightness - 600cd/m2, 8ms response time, tuner. Inputs include composite, s-video, component, D4, and HDMI/HDCP and with capability of displaying signals up to 1080p on HDMI and component inputs. Power consumption is 300W, a bit more that from a 42-incher, but since it power more pixels, it is expected. And yes, do not expect one of these at BestBuy - this is for Japanese folks only.
