100 Hz Flat TV with look and feel of a Plasma TV
Author Name: Himanshu Y Marathe
Advantages: 100 Hz, Style
Disadvantages: Sound, DNIe
CS-29Z40 is a 100Hz flat TV. 100 Hz TV gives you a flicker free picture. Most flat TVs give you a 50-60 Hz picture and computer monitors offer 80 Hz. So, comparatively 100 Hz offers you the best picture.
Price in India: 29000/-
Now, the ups and downs:
Design: The Slim Fit design takes a less space than conventional TVs. The dual tone color and the sleek look makes the TV look like an LCD/Plasma TV.
Picture: The picture tube is good. Colors come better and contrast is good too. The black looks black, no hint of white.
Connectivity: 2 component video connections, 1 composite connection and S-Video in. What else do you need.
Sound Features: SRS TruSurroundXT is a good surround option.
Sound: The tech specs say its 250 W, but when plugged with a DVD player, you'll be playing at readings of Volume meter. The sound is less as compared to others. The speakers do not live the expectations.
DNIe: DNIe is supposed to better the picture, but it worsens it. More, it cannot be switched off; no menu option available. It automatically tries to sharpen the picture and thats where it fails.
Headphone: No headphone out.
Rest, everything about the TV is fine. Read the tech specs for more information.
Summary: Affordable 100 Hz TV.
