Starting off, Toshiba’s WX800 Cinema Series is Toshiba’s first-ever 3D-capable HDTV, supporting multiple 3D input formats including RealD and MPEG4-MVC and boasting a 7,000,000:1 contrast ratio, a 240Mhz refresh rate, and a total depth of less than 1.2 inches. The WX800 is also full Internet-capable, with built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi so users can tap into services like NetFlix and Vudu, as well as keep up with social networking and photo sharing services via Toshiba’s own Enhanced Net TV service and Yahoo Widgets. The WX800 sports four HDMI inputs, ColorStream component input, and a high-res PC input for hooking up a variety of video sources. The WX800 will be available in 46- and 55-inch sizes for suggested retail prices of $2,599.99 and $3,299.99, respectively.

Toshiba is also launching the VX700 series in its Cinema Line: the sets aren’t 3D capable, but they offer DLNA support, an SD/SDHC slot, USB connectivity, a 120 Hz refresh rate, Wi-Fi connectivity, and Toshiba’s Enhanced Net TV service: they’ll also be available in 46- and 55-inch sizes for suggested prices of $2,299.99 and $2,799.99, respectively.

Not content only to target high-end home theater fans, Toshiba has also introduced its new UL605 series and SL400 series LED TVs, both of which feature super-slim space-saving designs. The UL605s feature 120 Hz refresh rates, WI-Fi connectivity and Net TV streaming content services, a USB port, and DLNA compatibility. They’ll be available in 40-, 46-, and 55-inch sizes for $1,399, $1,699, and $2,499, respectively.

Bringing things still more down to earth, the SL400 series sport are edge-lit LED TVS, but drop the Internet connectivity, leaving two HDMI-CEC inputs, a USB port for putting photos off cameras and other devices. However, they make up for it in pricing, with four models ranging from 19- to 32-inches carrying suggested prices of $349 to $699.
