"The GE name is going to appear on televisions created by a 49%/51% joint venture of GE and Tatung, a Taiwanese builder of HDTVs, computer monitors and appliances. The new company is known as GDT for General Displays and Technologies. The GE line is set to launch in late April. Honeywell has authorized another Taiwanese company; SOYO to design, sell and market Honeywell branded HDTVs. Honeywell will produce a line of LCD HDTVs from 19” to 82” screen sizes. Yes, that right, an 82” LCD Full HD TV."
LCD TVs have slowly been growing in size over the years as the technology has been improving. However, a recent announcement by Honeywell is notable as their largest model spans a hefty 82 inches. This puts it in the size class that competes against some projectors. It offers full 1080p HD, a wide viewing angle, 120Hz refresh rate and a standard compliment of connectors. It also weighs a considerable 303 lbs, so you won't be moving it around much, but it does look like a great choice for setting up a home theater and you don't want to go the projector route.
