Viewsonic VT3245, VT3745 & N4285 Full HD LCD TVs
strain on your finances Viewsonic s latest Full HD TVs, namely the 32 �
VT3245, 37 � VT3745 and the 42 � N4285, may prove of interest in
offering not only 1080p HD resolution but also integrated SRS
TruSurround XT audio surround sound processing technology.
Of the three new LCD HDTVs announced, Viewsonic s press release has
confirmed that the 32 � VT3245 and 37 � VT3745 both tout integrated
ATSC/NTSC/QAM digital tuners, 4,000:1 static contrast ratio, 16:9 aspect
ratio anti-glare displays and 5ms response times (that said, it
seemingly transpires that only the VT3745 offers 5ms response time
whilst the VT3245 actually only manages a pretty poor 6.5ms "
regardless of what Viewsonic s press release states) whilst also
offering onboard 3D video processing " which, we ll grant you, sounds
somewhat exciting but, in practice, simply refers to the clarity and
crispness of the images produced (so, no, these are not 3D-ready TVs).
Billed as being �designed for TV or monitor use whilst being �perfect
for streaming media content from the Internet, including TV shows and
movies it s interesting to note, also, that whilst this could be
understandably taken to indicate that the VT3245 and VT3745 come with
network connectivity they don t " at least not according to the spec
sheets Viewsonic have posted up separately. What they do offer in terms
of connectivity, however, is HDMI x2 (with HDCP and audio support),
RS-232 and well as RGB analog, S-video, TV/cable, composite (RCA) and
The Viewsonic 32 � VT3245 is due to shipping anytime now for around $800
whilst the 37 � VT3745 is due to commence shipping from October when it
ll set you back just shy of $650.
Information concerning the Viewsonic N4285 is, at this juncture, rather
limited except to say that it offers a 42 � display along with Full HD,
a dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1, that it ll come in at around
$1,000 and that its set to hit around the same time as the VT3745.
