Maxent is not exactly one of the main players on the TV sets' market, but it has managed to come up with some pretty interesting products over the past few years, including the MX-58HPT51, released back in the second half of 2007. This is a display device which offers a very large diagonal size, as well as other attractive features on the side, without bumping the price tag too far up.

Furthermore, the device sports a 16:9 native aspect ratio, an 10000:1 contrast ratio, a brightness level of 1200 cd/m2 as well as up to 2 billion colors.
Beside the aforementioned display-related features, the MX-58HPT51 also delivers quite a large number of advanced image processing options. as for example the MotionDSC Video Processor, the various preset picture settings (Vivid,Cinema, Standard, User), image shift burn-in prevention, 3-D Y/C digital comb filter, the IIS Intelligent Image Scaling engine, a Digital Noise Reduction system, Auto Flesh-Tone Correction and Adaptive Motion De-interlacing.
The MX-58HPT51 has been equipped with a NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuner, but also offers a very wide range of connectivity options on the side, including here HDMI, Composite, Component, S-Video and analog audio. Furthermore, the device also offers an audio output for an external speaker system, although it does incorporate two speakers of its own, capable of generating around 30 watts of power.
