If the TV you see above looks very much like the one you have in the living room, then you way behind time and you are probably one heck of a nostalgic person. Well, the good news is, you can now move on to world of flat screen TV while not forsaking the nostalgia because there’s the Vintage-style 20-inch Japanese LCD TV, which is exact the set you see here. With this TV, you get all the goodness that comes with your unbelievable old tube TV, but with the modern wonders brought about by a 20-inch LCD display which is also the reason why instead of a cathode ray tube packed inside the retro-licious cabinet, it is now boast a handy storage space for your audio visual whatnots.
Obvious features include an era-accurate wooden cabinet – complete with spindly wooden legs, and totally functional volume and channel knobs, along with the appropriate inputs/outputs (you know, stuff like HDMI, composite video connectors, USB, optical audio and even an Ethernet port) to boot. And oh, apparently, the front lower section is also a useful space for your set top box or digital recorder too. Pretty neat, eh? I know it is and it probably already had you going head-over-heel over it. Well, here’s the thing. Don’t. Because, unless you reside in the Land of the Rising Sun, this is not going to work out for you because the tuner is only compatible with terrestrial digital broadcast within Japan. What a bummer! Then again, you probably won’t feel that bad when you knew it commands a hefty $980 and that’s for a 20-incher, mind you.
