Sceptre has been peddling lower priced HDTVs that double as PC monitors for a while now. The company is known for making some interesting colors on its set like the chrome 24-inch set I talked about a while back. The company has announced its first 27-inch HDTV called the X270BV-FHD.
The set has a 27-inch screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1920 x 1080. That gives the screen a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 for computers and full 1080p for HD movies and TV. The 1080p resolutions is supported via HDMI or component inputs.
Connectivity options include three HDMI 1.3 ports, DVI, VGA, and USB. The USB port allows the user to play digital music over the sets pair of 5W speakers and view digital photos on the big screen. The contrast ratio for the set is 100,000:1 and it has a brightness rating of 400 cd/m2. The TV will be offered online at Newegg and in Target, Sears, and Costco for $449.
