After we heard Toshiba would be showcasing glasses-less 3DTVs before the year's end, we started looking forward to the beginning of the end for cumbersome glasses. Japan's got 'em first, but at $2,900 for a 20-incher I don't mind.
Toshiba introduced a whole mess of new Regza LED LCD TVs today over in Japan, but it's the Z1 series that grabbed our attention: 37- to 55-inch edge-lit LEDs with USB and LAN recording functionality. Gimme!

Toshiba's been shipping its Cinema Series Regza LCD 1080p displays for a while now, but we just wanted to show you the newest member of that club, with the thinnest bezel we've seen yet. Check out this 46-incher, with a .9-inch border around the outside that Toshiba is calling SNB, or Super Narrow Bezel.
Dismissing that whole Blockbuster Blu-ray decision as nothing more than a PR victory, and in no way an exclusive deal by the video-rental company, execs from Toshiba and Microsoft came to NYC to show off the latest in HD DVD amenities.

Toshiba announced the addition of two Cinema Series Pro models to their line of REGZA LCD TVs. These are very high-end TVs. They were created specifically for hi-fi lovers and custom installations.
