Toshiba Intros New TV Lines – One 3D

Posted Thu Sep 16, 2010 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The WX800 Cinema Series marks Toshiba's first entry to the world of 3D.

Toshiba is coming to the 3D game about a year later than most, but the company is hoping that its WX800 line is going to turn some heads.

The WX800 is a pretty slick set, featuring built in WiFi, ClearFrame 240Hz technology, and a 7,000,000:1 contrast ratio. It can stream from Netflix, download from Vudu and check in with Facebook, but it's the 3D functionality that's really interesting. The WX800 can handle a variety of 3D formats, and thanks to a tech called 3D Resolution+, you'll be getting a nice crisp picture.

You can pick up the 55 inch version of the WX800 for $3,299 while the 46 inch model comes in at $2,599.

If you're not looking for a 3D set, there's the WX700. Like the 3D version, the WX700 includes advanced controls for video – including color and gamma settings. It's got the same built in WiFi capabilities, as well as the Netflix, Vudu, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter functionality. The biggest difference, aside from the lack of 3D, is the size. You'll be getting a slimmer set with a flush front, creating a seamless bezel.

The WX700 comes in at $2,799 for the 55 inch set and $2,299 for 46 inches.
