I can remember a time not too long ago when I had to move my 110lbs 32” CRT tube based TV into my new home without the luxury of a dolly or close friend nearby. I remember thinking to myself, one day those spiffy lightweight flat panel displays will be affordable enough to the average consumer making these big bulky CRT based TV’s a thing of the past. Well four years later, the SYNTAX group brought my thoughts to realization with their new lightweight and affordable LCD displays.
