Japanese Byd:sign is starting to sell a 52 inch Projection TV with DLP technology for 299,800 yen ($2,750).
In Japan this new projection TV is a price breaker. It would not be in the USA, as a quick price comparison shows.
Still the new Byd:sign dc:5275dpj looks great. The TV has 1280×720 pixel resolution and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. Other features include DVI and SD-Card and Memory Stick slot for viewing photos.
The 16:9 Projection TV measures 1262×439×891mm.
