Sceptre dives into 32-inch HDTV market with integrated DVD player
You can say that the cost of living has increased tremendously in just about every part of the world over the years, and having said that, more and more people cannot afford to get a place of their own, but will have to rent a room or a small apartment. Landed property prices have skyrocketed simply because no one makes land any more, and apartments as well as condominiums are not exactly the cheapest living quarters either. In land scarce countries like Japan and Hong Kong, you would be surprised to check out the living areas if you happen to live on a landed property all your life. This means consumer electronics that are released will need to be as compact as possible, and yet deliver the most bang for your buck. Sceptre does good this time around with their 32-inch LED HDTV that boasts of an integrated DVD player to further help you save space in your living room.
Sporting a true 31.5-inch crystal clear viewable area, the Sceptre E325BD-HD will deliver the kind of design and convenience required in smaller living spaces without having to sacrifice on image quality. Sporting a 720P LED display at 1366 × 768 resolution and a true widescreen 16:9 ratio, this bad boy will come with a trio of HDMI ports so that you can hook up a video game console and perhaps your notebook is you need a large secondary display to work with. Forget about connecting a DVD player to this HDTV, as you already have one built-in.
Sceptre claims that the E325BD-HD is so energy efficient, that it has an estimated yearly energy cost of only $11. I am not quite sure just what kind of benchmarks did they use to arrive at such a figure, surviving on an hour of TV a day perhaps? All in all, this puppy measures under 2″ thin, and tips the scales at under 20.3lbs with its stand. Expect to fork out $599 for the E325BD-HD if you are interested.
