HANNspree lays claim to 28-inch 1080p LCD

First 28-inch 1080p LCD

TV builder HANNspree has announced the HT09, a new LCD TV set. The display is claimed to be first 28-inch model in the world capable of 1080p, a resolution normally reserved for TVs measuring 40 inches or larger, with some exceptions. The difference between 1080p and 720p is normally said to be indistinguishable below that size, but may make the HT09 usable as a computer monitor.

Brightness is limited to 500cd/m2, and dynamic contrast rated at a comparatively low 3,000:1. HD-ready inputs are likewise restricted to one component, one VGA and two HDMI ports, but the set does have a 3ms gray-to-gray response time, and built-in tuners for ATSC, NTSC and Clear QAM. HANNspree is selling the HT09 for $500.
