Toshiba UX600 Series Earns Win 7 Certification

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 10 comments

Three HDTVs are now certified by Microsoft for Windows 7.

Windows 7 users looking for a compatible, certified display may want to check out Toshiba's new line of UX600 Cinema Series HDTVs. Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc said in a blog Friday that the UX600 series will actually be the first HDTVs to hit the market that carry the Compatible with Windows 7 logo.

"With the logo comes the ability to use Windows 7’s Play To feature to play music, pictures, and videos to this TV through your home network – these TVs feature both Ethernet and wireless connectivity," he said.

The UX600 line, announced last week, consists of three HD LED TVs: the 55UX600U (54.6-inch diagonal), the 46UX600U (46-inch diagonal), and the 40UX600U (40-inch diagonal). All three feature 1080p Full HD, a 120 Hz refresh rate, 3,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, a special Gaming Mode, Net TV, and more.

The 54.6-inch version costs around $2399.98-- the 46-inch and 40-inch retails for $1699.99 and $1399.99 respectively.

    Nifty, but any clue what resolutions it supports?
    2560 x 1600 pixels?

    The beginning of this sentence should clarify your question:

    "All three feature 1080p Full HD, a 120 Hz refresh rate, 3,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, a special Gaming Mode, Net TV, and more."

    I took the win-7 comp. sticker from a new monitor,
    and put it on my fridge. (also by Samsung)
    now I have a win-7 comp. fridge! cool!
    seriously now... just give it a cpl of years, and we'll
    see a google powered fridge, and a win-7 compatible hot-tub...
    how ridiculous iz zat?!
    how can a monitor be non-some-OS-compatible?!

    I did : )
    didn't make my comment clear enaf - I meant my new monitor,
    NOT this HDTV.
    I have no doubt: when it comes, the google fridge will buy ur groceries,
    and the MS hot-tub will.. hmm.. well...
