HDTV from Seiki takes on a retro look
When it comes to the world of fashion, it is said that the old never really go out of style permanently. Sure, whatever is hip and happening at the moment might be shelved shortly for the next fad, but it will return eventually to make its mark once again sometime down the road, although as to when that will happen remains to be seen. I suppose the same can be said of design, as everyone loves a little bit of retro once in a while. Seiki Digital decided to take a modern day consumer electronics device and give it a touch of retro, resulting in the 22-inch Retro Design HDTV (which carries the model number SE22FR01).
The Retro Design HDTV’s name alone gives the game away, being a new and colorful nostalgic HDTV model. Depending on how you would want it to fit into your room, it will arrive in multiple retro colors such as Retro Red, Mid-century Yellow, Electric Blue, Doo-wop Purple, and Cadillac Pink. Not only that, you will also find the clock being dialled back thanks to the Retro Design HDTV’s power and volume dials.
Of course, do not be fooled by its looks, as the Retro Design HDTV will still come with all the bells and whistles of today’s HDTVs, and they include Full HD 1080p resolution on a 21.5” diagonal LED panel, 60Hz panel refresh rate, HDMI, component/composite, and VGA ports, and a remote control. Your ears too, will appreciate the fact that this HDTV will boast of a built-in subwoofer that delivers an amazing sound experience.
If you are interested in picking up the Retro Design HDTV, it will retail for $329 a pop. The one major drawback that I can say would affect sales figures of this particular HDTV would be the size. Compared to modern day HDTVs, the amount of chunkiness of this CRT impostor is definitely not going to go down well with those who love sleek and slim designs in their homes.
