LCD TVs are dime a dozen in the market, but Godrej has come out with an added incentive to the humble category with motion sensing gaming a la Nintendo Wii. The 32-inch Eon Game LCD TV comes with 25 in-built games which can be played using the wireless joystick which comes bundled too. Some of the games that impressed us were Dart, Bowling, Table Tennis among others. Response of the wireless joystick was good in most games, but do not expect impressive graphics.
Build quality is quite impressive. It has a piano black glossy bezel, with a somewhat thicker rear side. There are no connection options on the side. Placement of connectors is facing downwards, so it is some task connecting the ports.
Spyder 3 Elite gave a contrast ratio of 355.67 : 1 which is quite decent. Displaymate tests revealed backlight bleeding but the 256 intensity colour and BW ramps did not throw any unwanted colour tinges. Movie viewing experience was good in terms of video quality, but sound leaves a lot to be desired. It scales down HD quality videos conviniently. Playing off the USB was easy as well and one interesting aspect is that it can read text files. Viewing photographs off the USB was also quite quick.
This innovative LCD TV is priced at `40,000. Although for a 32-inch the price is a bit on the higher side, but not much for casual gamers.
