Sanyo has launched a 29 inch CRT television that it claims is 20 percent slimmer than conventional designs. Its $599 price tag makes it a cheap alternative to slimmer formats such as LCDs and plasmas.
“This new slim-line flat TV complements our extensive range of TVs, including LCD and plasma. By combining sleek space-saving design with traditional CRT technology, we’re able to offer brilliant pictures and sound with slim styling and 20 per cent less bulk for just $599,” said Sanyo’s Bill Crichton.
Features include stereo surround sound, a five-band graphic equaliser, teletext, childlock and ‘picture mode’ selection. The latter allows you to adjust the picture mode according to how brightly lit the room is. The Sanyo Pure Flat Slim Stereo TV also starts tuning and storing channels automatically as soon as it is turned on.
