Samsung to bring HD Ready CRT TV to Europe

Better picture than an LCD - and much cheaper too

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Yes, we know the consumer electronics industry wants us all to upgrade our TVs to brand spanking new LCD jobs - with HDTV dangled before us as bait - but some of us prefer the better picture quality, greater screen longevity and, frankly, lower price benefits of good old CRT technology.

It seems Samsung, for one, has been listening and has been showing off its latest CRT TV this week at CeBIT. The 32in telly has two key features: it's far slimmer than conventional CRTs and - crucially - it's HD Ready.

Yes, the CTV-32Z30 is ready to show high definition broadcasts - or will be when it ships in a few months' time. It's ready to go with an HDMI connector on the back, and presumably there'll be the usual array of SCART and s-video connectors too. Samsung didn't say what the maximum resolution is, but other HD CRTs it's offered elsewhere go up to 1080i.

The CTV-32Z30 is part of Samsung's SlimFit range. The company says a 30in display will be just 40cm (16in) front to back, compared to 60cm (24in) for a conventional CRT screen.

The screen is expected in the UK in May for around £350. ®
