HANNspree HT09 LCD HDTV: 28-inch budget buy

TV manufacturer HANNspree may be better known for their slightly bizarre themed monitors, but the company also produces entry level standard displays too.  The HANNspree HT09 is one such display, a 28-inch LCD HDTV with full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution, 3ms response speed and twin HDMI inputs.

Being a budget set there are some obvious compromises.  Brightness and contrast are an obvious pair: the HT09 manages a relatively weak 500cd/m2 and 800:1 respectively.  The in-built speakers, perhaps more important at the budget end of the spectrum as users are more likely to rely on them rather than an aftermarket surround sound system, manage just 5W each.

Still, there are plenty of ports – Composite, Component, two HDMI, VGA, two SCART, PC Audio, Composite Audio, HDMI/DVI Audio – and a headphone output for private listening.  The HANNspree HT09 is available in the UK now, priced at £279.99 ($491).
