While IKEA's all-in-one entertainment center won't be widely available until this fall, the Uppleva arrived in IKEA's Stockholm store late last week and will be on sale in select European stores this summer. There's also a little more technical detail available on this somewhat unusual project — confirming what we heard earlier, the TVs are LED powered and run at a 1080p resolution. GigaOM is also reporting that Uppleva sets sized between 32 and 46 inches will have four HDMI ports and 2 USB ports, while the smaller 24-inch model will have two HDMI ports and 1 USB port. There's also some new detail around an 8GB memory stick that IKEA will sell to allow for some limited DVR-style technology — users will be able to record shows as well as pause and rewind live TV. And, as we heard earlier, the Uppleva will come with a Blu-ray player, 2.1 sound (complete with a wireless subwoofer), and Wi-Fi; it's not clear if the sets will all have Wi-Fi built in or if you'll need to purchase a separate adaptor.
Unfortunately, it sounds like the Uppleva might not be worth your hard-earned cash — Swedish publication M3 recently did an in-depth review of IKEA's foray into home theater and gave it a middling five out of ten, noting that both the interface and panel quality were both sub-par. While the physical design and compact nature of the Uppleva won it some points, it didn't make up for the software issues. Hopefully by the time the Uppleva starts making its way into wider distribution, some of these issues will be ironed out.
