So, you are thinking that it is time you ditched that first generation LED TV in your living room, and move on with the times to one of those svelte and nearly bezel-less TVs from the likes of Samsung and LG? Perhaps, but then again, budget is always a constraint, especially in such economically challenging times for some. Sceptre has managed to strike a careful balance between price and performance all this while, and their latest Sceptre 32-inch LED HDTV is no exception, where you will be pleased to hear that it will be accompanied by MHL technology. Just what is MHL technology, you ask? Well, MHL technology has nothing to do with hockey, but it will enable smartphones and other compatible portable devices to connect directly to high-definition televisions and displays
This will be Sceptre’s first LED HDTV with MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) technology in the market, where the extremely svelte 32-inch looker is said to be specially designed to deliver the ultimate interactive home entertainment experience. In fact, if this model takes off wonderfully, do expect to see more HDTVs from Sceptre that will feature MHL technology. Imagine using your large screen TV in the living room as a display or speaker for your smartphone or compatible portable devices, not to mention the HDTV’s remote itself is capable of controlling the connected device.
Specially developed by the MHL consortium, MHL technology will rely on a single cable to support up to 1080p high-definition video and surround sound audio, and to sweeten the deal further, it can simultaneously charge the connected device.
What other specifications does this Sceptre 32-inch LED HDTV with MHL technology carry? For starters, it is a true 16:9 widescreen, has a 1920×1080 resolution and a rated LED backlight life of over 50,000 hours. Other integrated technologies include auto dynamic contrast enhancement, auto-volume level control, sound equalizer settings and surround sound capability. You can pick it up for $599.99 a pop if you are interested.
