As you may have guessed by scanning our CES 2013 coverage, HDTV -- particularly of the Ultra HD variety -- was kind of a big deal at this year's show. In fact, UHDTV's omnipresence fanned so much reader interest this year that we penned a feature article to put the whole phenomenon into perspective. While that makes for a lively discussion, none of the 4K sets announced at the show are shipping yet, and the few from last year that are available might cost as much as a new car -- or two. To that end, let's head after the break to see all the new TVs, set-top devices, Blu-ray players and the like presented at CES -- including a few you may actually be able to afford. LG
LG kicked off the proceedings at CES this year, and its HDTV story resembled War and Peace with a bevy of new products. Some of those were "wowza"-inducing offerings, like the curved, 55-inch EA9800 OLED model with no price or delivery announced, or the 100-inch Hecto laser-TV projector -- with the latter having an actual March US arrival date and expected pricetag around $10,000. Other concrete announcements included a new lineup of five Google TVs, an updated Magic Remote and the fact that all of its LCDs now use LED lighting technology. In other words, LG used CES 2013 as its personal HDTV news and information center.

Sharp announced a meaty lineup of 18 new LED TVs in its 6-, 7- and 8-Series -- 60-, 70- and 80-inch models, respectively. Many won't make your wallet cry, either, with the entry-level 60-inch 2D LC-60LE650 starting at around $1,500, though the high-end LC-80LE857 hits a budget-stretching $6,500. Most of the models will arrive as early as February, for those looking to get a new set soon -- but those with denser pixel ambitions can dream about Sharp's upcoming AQUOS Ultra HD model, with pricing and availability to come.
