New Microtek 1080p sets

Compounding on plasma announcements earlier in the week (pictured), Microtek has just introduced two new 42-inch LCDs, the CL42HA and the L42CX2A. Unlike the plasma models, these sets have full 1080p support, with scaling options for resolutions down to 480i. Brightness for each is rated at 500cd/m2, with a contrast ratio of 1,200:1 and a viewing angle of 176 degrees. Each set also has HDMI, VGA, component, composite and S-video inputs, as well as ports for NTSC and ATSC (HD) antennas. The actual differences between the models are minimal, with the L42CX2A having factory calibration and a one-year warranty, and the CL42HA having a two-year warranty and "middle-ground" calibration for tweaking by home theater enthusiasts. The former should be on sale now for $1,900; the CL42HA is coming soon for $2,000.
