Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Blu-ray review

Snow White Blu-ray review diamond editionNot many people realize this, but Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is ‘s very first full-length animated motion picture. Some would say it is the most prized possession inside the Disney Vault, since one could argue that this movie not only pushed the still-young Disney studio well on its way to being the global powerhouse that it is today, but it also expanded and legitimized the art of animation. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the first movie to be released as part of the Disney Platinum Series, which has been around for a while now. However, when it came time to get the Blu-ray treatment, Sleeping Beauty and Pinocchio were both released before Snow White, as Disney wanted to get this one just right. The result? The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Blu-ray set.

Is it worthy of the title? Journey with us as we dig deep into the Snow White Diamond Edition and find out.

LG HB954SP HTIB Blu-ray system features iPod and iPhone dock

is set to make you consider a HTIB set with their HB954SP, a 5.1 channel surround sound system with five speakers and a subwoofer, all pushing 1,000 total watts of power.  It also includes a BD-Live-enabled player that has an iDock - basically an iPod dock that you can use to charge an iPod or iPhone. 

Expect to see the HB954SP HTIB launch sometime in November. No mention of price, but we are thinking it won’t be cheap.

Panasonic 50-inch 3D 1080p Blu-ray Plasma TV

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Displays, HDTV,

Panasonic 50 inch with Blu-ray

Last January, we got a chance to see ‘s 3D demonstration on their 103-inch screen, and it appears that the company was able to shrink it down for the typical consumer, and they’ll be showing it off at CEATEC 2009 next week.  Their 50-inch screen is meant for the typical consumer (starting with early adopters.) To take advantage of 3D on this set, you need to use it alongside a 3D-compatible player along with shutter glasses.  There is no word on a price point, but these 3D TVs should be all the rage next year.
