A ready-to-assemble ambient lighting kit that extends the colors coming out of your HDTV. Lightpack 2 comes with RGB LED strips, corner pieces and an adapter that lets you connect up to four HDMI devices. Optional “pixels” let you extend color into your room.
An 84″ weatherproof 4K TV. The Pro Series SB-8418UHD has a sealed aluminum case that protects it from water, dust, insects and more. It also has an anti-glare screen and a temperature control system that lets it operate between -44ºF to 122ºF.
VIZIO not only amped up its premium 4K displays with HDR, Dolby Vision, and a wider color gamut for vibrant images, but they killed the “smart TV” paradigm, shifting all apps to a bundled 6″ Android tablet using Google Cast to stream content. In 50″, 55″, 65″ and 75″ sizes.
The Samsung KN55S9C has a 55″ curved OLED display. Its 1080p screen sits on a frame that has a built-in camera and speakers. The TV also supports 3D video and has Wi-Fi, MHL, Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
Probably the coolest thing we saw at CES 2012, it uses over 6.2 million tiny LEDs, providing the smoothest, brightest, most colorful images we’ve ever seen. Too bad it’s just a prototype – for now.

This razor-thin set has a massive 65″ LED edge-lit screen, and uses passive 3D glasses, eliminating costly active lenses and reducing headaches. 802.11n Wi-Fi and Internet apps are built-in too.

If you were thinking about the new Apple TV, but would rather have 1080p video and not be tied down to iTunes, Roku’s latest players look pretty sweet. Cheapskates: pick up the $59 720p version.
LG’s prototype OLED TV is the world’s slimmest television at only 2.9mm thick. The 31-in wonder delivers 1080p, can display 3D video and has an “infinite contrast ratio”, whatever that means.
