The Sagem HD-D45H is big, and the piano black finish of this massive 45 inch frame seems to be of concern to the manufacturers; this is probably why they supply a pair of special handling gloves that are to be used while installing this black beauty. With its depth of less than 37cm, it usually needs to be supported by a large stand. This hi-def ready rear projection television only needs to wait for the HD service to set off to dazzle with its performance.

The Sagem HD-D45H is big, and the piano black finish of this massive 45 inch frame seems to be of concern to the manufacturers; this is probably why they supply a pair of special handling gloves that are to be used while installing this black beauty. With its depth of less than 37cm, it usually needs to be supported by a large stand. This hi-def ready rear projection television only needs to wait for the HD service to set off to dazzle with its performance.

The Axium isn't just a display device, it actually is a television, and comes with an analogue tuner, an aerial input and peripheral features including Teletext and Nicam stereo. The lack of a digital tuner to complete the setup is a set back, but adding an external Freeview box is hardly an expensive option these days. There however is the infamous 'rainbow effect' caused by DLP's colour wheel. Although Sagem seems to have done a fine job of eliminating it as far as possible, but the odd occurrence is surely there occasionally. The other is the occasional appearance of a motion artifact during quick horizontal pans; both these are not too disruptive, but it is just that they will be noticed all the same.

Connectivity offered is good - around the side of the TV there's a card slot for seven different multimedia formats, including Memory Stick, MMC and SD, among others. You also get an integrated 2.1 Virtual Surround audio set-up and a healthy supply of AV socketry. Other connections include component video input, a VGA PC input (located at the side), a trio of RGB capable Scart sockets as well as digital audio in and outputs. Sagem's rear-projection TV is a real star performer across both standard and high-definition sources.

    OOUps La tout est mélangé. Je recommence: Bonjour J’ai un Sagem Axium D45. 10 Minutes après l’avoir allumé de traits verts horizontales apparaissent sur l’écran. Au bout de 30 minutes les traits devient très denses et il est impossible de regarder l’écran. Avez-une explication? Merci d’avance pour vos réponses.
