It used to be that 80-inch TVs were the stuff of CES displays and rich folks' home cinemas. Not so with the Mitsubishi Diamond 82-Inch 3D HDTV ($3,800). Beyond the obvious 3D chops, this mammoth monitor also features an integrated 16-speaker, 5.1 channel Dolby Digital surround sound system, StreamTV for on-screen access to web services like Pandora, Flickr, and Facebook, Wi-Fi with an optional adapter, and the Plush 1080p 5G 12-bit Video processor for smooth action and upscaling.

For those of you (like us) who've been waiting years for an all-new TiVo interface, feast your eyes on the TiVo Premiere ($300). The new interface takes full advantage of HDTVs as well as its web-connectedness, with the ability to search across standard cable, YouTube, the web, Netflix, Amazon On Demand, and Blockbuster, all new specific movie and TV collections — like Oscar and Emmy winners — the ability to click on a show or actor to learn more, an on-screen space meter, and new content from Pandora Radio and FrameChannel. The standard TiVo Premiere will offer up to 45 hours of HD recording, E-SATA for external storage, video output up to 1080p, and a single multistream CableCARD slot; the beefier XL model ($500) steps up to 150 hours of HD recording and adds THX certification. As an added bonus for Adobe supporters, the new interface is built on Flash, so you'll know who to blame if it starts crashing more often than a NASCAR rookie driving with a blindfold on.
Carry a cinema in the palm of your hand with the BenQ Joybee GP1 Mini Projector ($500).

Other features include VGA, component, and composite video inputs, a built-in USB reader, a built-in 2 Watt speaker, RCA and mini-jack audio inputs, and an included carrying case and remote.
