Sceptre Unveils 2013 Lineup Including Small Bezels and a Smart Soundbar
The folks at Sceptre are stepping up their game for 2013.  They've announced their lineup – though the details are still under wraps – and it includes some very cool additions in both TVs and monitors.  Sceptre is referring to the new sets as Rimless, and they sport bezels of just 4mm.  Those monitors aren't tiny either, ranging from 32 inches on up to 55.  What's really intriguing though, is the soundbar.

Redbox Instant Runs $8.00 a Month - $9.00 with Blu-ray
