HP Ships 1080p LCDs

HP on Thursday began shipping its 2007 HDTV line of LCDs and plasmas, including its first 1080p direct-view LCD sets. The 42-inch LC4276N and 47-inch LC4776N each achieve the full HD resolution and claim a 1,200:1 static contrast ratio as well as three HDMI ports, a VGA connector for PCs, and an RS232 serial port for automated home theaters. The TVs ship for $1,899 and $2,499 at their respective sizes.

Two smaller, 720p sets have also been released, HP says. The LC3272 and LC3772 put out the mid-range HD resolution at 32 and 37 inches each with the same expansion options. The company sells them at $899 for the smaller 32-inch set and $1,199 for its larger sibling.

More disparate are the two plasma displays. HP's 42-inch PL4272N has a wide-pixel 1024x768 resolution and a brighter 10,000:1 contrast ratio in its 42-inch screen, while the premium PL5027N adds a true 1366x768 panel and the same improved contrast. HP offers its plasmas at $1,399 for the 42-inch and $2,099 for the 50-inch.
