Westinghouse Digital is pleased to introduce the multi-functional LD-2685 series 26″ 1080p LED HDTV as the latest addition to their LED line. The LD-2685 is the ultimate all-in-one, space-saving, HD television/gaming/computer display. At an estimated street price of $379, the set is ideal for any gamer looking to get top of the line picture quality at an extremely affordable price.
The set features an edge-lit LED system that provides a remarkably vivid picture, thanks to high contrast ratios, making it perfect for gaming. This outstanding gradient light ability results in extremely detailed color representation for a bright and beautiful picture. The LD-2685 features 1920 x 1080 resolution, 16×9 aspect ratio and has 2 HDMI, 1 Component and 1 VGA input. The LD-2685 combines sleek styling, extraordinary picture quality and industry-leading energy efficiency to set a new benchmark in LED HDTV value.
Rey Roque, Vice President of Marketing says, We’re extremely excited to offer a 26″ 1080p set at such an affordable price. The compact size and beautiful picture are the perfect complement to an Xbox 360 or PS3 and with extra HDMI/VGA inputs, can also be used as a computer monitor for PC/Mac gamers. The 1080p LD-2685 is the perfect option for dorm rooms or game rooms. We believe that the consumers will be pleased by the LD-2685′s range of capabilities.
The LD-2685 is also gorgeous to look at. The unit boasts a sleek industrial design with a high-gloss black frame for a graceful, modern look. It’s only about one inch thick at the TV’s visible edges.
Continuing with Westinghouse Digital’s tradition of industry-leading energy efficiency for its TVs, the new LD-2685 is also extremely eco-friendly. The 26” LD-2685 exceeds Energy Star 5.0 ratings, which are slated to go into effect in 2012. Most consumers will be surprised to find that using a 45-watt light bulb will actually consume more electricity than the 26” LD-2685. The LED line packaging process is eco-efficient as well. The product box is made of recycled materials, is recyclable and uses soy based ink.
Westinghouse Digital’s new LED lineup combines the styling of the highest-end HDTVs with the dramatic performance benefits of advanced LED picture technology, all at values that are comparable to conventional LCD TV price points.
The LD-2685 will be available at retail in mid-August with an estimated street price of $379.
