Product Info Reviews

  • 43-inch projection HDTV monitor in 16:9 widescreen format; 37 x 46.9 x 22.1 inches (W x H x D)
  • 1080i/ 720p/480p compatibility
  • Performs 3:2 pulldown correction for distortion free movie viewing
  • 3D Y/C comb filter enhances resolution by removing the blurred edges between colors
  • 2-tuner PIP, digital convergence


The GB43HD09 also offers 3:2 pulldown correction, a handy feature when using DVD players that lack 3:2 pulldown in their progressive-scan video signals. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture on your TV. Velocity-scan modulation improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas.

The GB43HD09's 3D Y/C comb filter further enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt). Dual-tuner PIP features include PIP Swap as well as the ability to show four sub-box PIP images in your main viewing screen.

In the audio department, BBE sound simulates surround sound through two channels, either the set's or an external pair. If you're listening through external speakers, you can still control the volume right from the remote control when connecting the set's variable audio outputs to an amp or receiver. The set offers two component-video inputs (one for standard component-video, one for progressive-scan), three S-video inputs, two rear AV inputs, and one set of side AV inputs. The screen is protected by a shield.
