Original Press Release:
Gateway's New 30-Inch LCD TV Makes the Most of Tight Spaces and Budgets at Just $1,799
Gateway 30-Inch LCD TV Provides Twice the Life of Many Popular Thin TVs
IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 3 -- Executing on its strategy to deliver convergence products that complement its core PC offerings, Gateway, Inc. today introduced a 30-inch HD-Ready LCD TV, the SHD-3010, at an affordable price of just $1,799.99.
At just four-inches thin, the Gateway 30-inch LCD TV offers brilliant picture quality in a sleek, compact package. Its estimated useful life is 50,000 hours, twice the life of many popular thin TVs that only provide 25,000 hours of viewing time. The color LCD display with a widescreen format enables consumers to view movies at home in letterbox style, the way film directors intended them to be seen. In addition, the TV brilliantly showcases 4:3 ratio television programs, transforming everyday viewing into exciting entertainment.
"Our new Gateway 30-inch LCD TV is the perfect solution for consumers desiring the space-savings and high picture quality of LCD technology at a very attractive price," said Dan Stevenson, Gateway's vice president of product marketing. "Not only is it great as a standalone TV, but it's an excellent complement to our award-winning line of Media Center PCs. Together, they create an ideal home entertainment solution for the bedroom, office or dorm."
The TV's 170-degree viewing angle displays images from virtually anywhere in the room. The lightweight TV weighing just 30.9 pounds can be wall-mounted (1), unlike traditional, bulky TVs that require dedicated furniture. It also comes with a stand for tabletop mounting.
The compact TV measures 20.50 inches high by 29.13 inches wide by 4 inches deep. Pictures provide extreme clarity and detail thanks to 1280 x 768 resolution, a 750:1 contrast ratio and a peak brightness of 600 nits.
Customers can pair the LCD TV with a Media Center or standard PC, so they only need one monitor for viewing their favorite programs, enjoying digital media and performing computing tasks. A "picture-in-picture" function makes it possible to use the computer and watch TV simultaneously. For instance, customers can surf the Web for stats while keeping an eye on their football team. In addition, zoom and freeze functions ensure they don't miss important details of their favorite programs.
Maximizing viewing options, the Gateway 30-inch LCD TV offers a wide variety of input sources including two composite, two component, s-video, RGB, DVI, RJ-11, RF, four RCA audio in and PC audio. The LCD TV also has a built-in NTSC tuner for viewing standard analog TV signals, two built-in 5-watt speakers and works with multiple external devices, such as DVD players.
Gateway supports its 30-inch HD-Ready LCD TV with a one-year limited warranty and offers a wide range of extended service and support plans (2).
