LG Unveils Plasma TVs With Built-in 160GB Hard Drive
Although LG’s newest Plasma TVs (the PG6900 series) won’t be a Tivo killer any time soon, they most certainly pose a threat to the stand alone DVR box that has gained mass popularity and set an interesting precedent for TVs of the future to come. Embedded in the 42-inch, or 50-inch PG6900 will be a 160GB DVR and an 8 day electronic programming guide. Expect up to 86 hours of SD recording (48 hours in HD), a 30,000:1 contrast ratio, a DVB-T tuner, 3 HDMI inputs and a 100Hz refresh rate to keep things looking smooth.
Release date isn’t know, but expect them to start at $1,800
