There are a lot of TVs on the market today that are crammed with cool tech like internal HDDs for directly recording programs, Blu-ray burners for burning those recorded shows to disc and 3D. Typically, you can find sets that have both a HDD and the Blu-ray burner in one, but it's not common to find a set that has all three of those features. Mitsubishi has now announced a new line of full HD TV sets that have all three features.




The new sets are the Real MDR1 series and can be had in 40-inch, 46-inche, and 55-inch screen sizes. So far, the TVs have only been announced for Japan. All of the screen sizes are LED backlit and the internal HDD is a 1TB unit. The sets also have a ten speaker sound system that should provide sound better than the average TV without needing external speakers.


The Blu-ray burner will also play Blu-ray films. Other features include USB, HDMI, and a SD card slot and they all ship with a single pair of 3D glasses. Pricing for the sets are up to $5,900 for the 55-inch unit and exactly how much additional sets of glasses will cost is unknown. All of the sets will hit stores in Japan on October 21.
