More LG LH95 Specs Leak...

lg95(2).jpgSome more info has slipped out regarding LG's LH95 super LCD TV. It's a 55-inch display measuring 24.8 mm thin, but despite its thin form factor squeezes in HD DivX so you can watch movies via USB, Bluetooth connectivity, a couple of speakers and wireless HD streaming via LG's AV media box. Now we just have to wait to hear what will likely be a hefty price tag.

victor_lcd-560x420(2).jpgVictor JVC will be showing off a prototype of the world's lightest 32-inch LCD TV at CES 2009. Weighing in at only 5 kg the LCD display is not only the world's lightest but Victor's thinnest measuring 7 mm in width.

There are no specs available at the moment, nor is there a model name or number. The set is expected to hit Japanese shelves sometime in 2009.

Samsung Bringing a 7 Millimeter Thin LCD TV To CES

kdl40zx1a(2).jpgSamsung will be unveiling an LCD TV between 6.5 and 7 millimeters thin later this week at CES in Las Vegas. The new Samsung launch will cement the set in the spot of the world's thinnest LCD TV, ahead of Philips' 8 millimeter prototype set shown off in Berlin last summer and Sony's 9.9 millimeter 40-ZX1.

The new Samsung set scraps fluorescent backlights for the LED flavor, enabling the super-thin width. No other details are available at the moment, but the Samsung LCD TV will have its public debut at a news conference this Wednesday.

LG Bringing A Trumotion 480 Hz LCD TV To CES 2009

lg480hz(2).jpgIf LG Electronics plans to blow everyone away at CES, this Trumotion 480 Hz LCD TV might just be the product to do it. At the beginning of 2008 120 Hz sets were impressive, nevermind 240 Hz panels, but 480 Hz? Wow. LG claims that its 'scanning backlight' can turn on and off quickly enough to enable the fast refresh rate complemented by a 4 ms response time. Other than what we have here, we won't find out any more details until CES, but expect LG's Trumotion 480 Hz LCD TV to be available for purchase in the second half of 2009.

LG Bringing 1-Inch LG95 LED-Backlit LCD TV To CES 2009

lg95(2).jpgCES 2009 is just around the corner--or turn of the calendar--and LG is going all out bringing the LH95 to Las Vegas. The LCD set is supposedly under 1-inch thick thanks to its use of LED backlighting and features a 240 Hz refresh and an unlikely 2, 000, 000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Other than those details LG has been mum on the specs, but more than anything I'd like to know what the LH95 is going to cost.

Vizio's VOJ37 Reviewed: One Of The Most Accurate Picture's Of Any 37-Inch LCD TV

voj37.jpgIf you're looking for a sub-$750 1080p LCD TV, the Vizio VOJ37 may be the way to go according to a CNET review. Though at 37-inches, 1080p resolution doesn't look much different than 720p unless the content is coming from a PC, the color accuracy and grayscale of the VOJ37 is among the best of any LCD TV its size. The Vizio also has plenty of picture controls so you can tweak the primary colors to your liking. It is a little light on the blacks compared to other sets of its size, but not really discernible unless doing a focused, side-by-side comparison.

Aside from the picture, the Vizio VOJ37 has plenty of connections including a PC input and 3 HDMI slots so you should easily be able to hook up all your home theater components to the set. And if you're looking for something a little different style-wise, this set actually has a brown-and-gold strip across the bottom--not for everyone but unique. In dark lighting the strip looks black anyway.

CNET gave the Vizio VOJ37 3.5 stars out of 5--a 'very good' rating. It's currently available at Amazon for $749.99.

JVC LCD TV's May Be Unreliable, But At Least They're Energy-Efficient

jvc.jpgSamsung has been busy lately touting the supreme energy-efficiency of its HDTV's, but JVC's LCD TV's are the latest sets to beat out the new Energy Star 3.0 standards. According to a press release, JVC is tied for the most efficient set in the 32-inch class, swept the first four spots in the 40 to 42 and 46 to 47 inch classes, and had the top three most efficient LCD TV's in the 50 to 52 inch class. The company says that it beat the Energy Star 3.0 specs by 29 to 60 percent overall. This is great for JVC, but the fact remains that just days ago its TV's were rated among the most unreliable on the market.

Sony Bravia KDL-52XBR7 Gets Reviewed: First 240 Hz Display EVER!!!

52xbr7.gifSony's Bravia KDL-52XBR7 has come under the sharp eye of the CNET reviewers despite the fact it won't be released until December 15. And while 60 Hz refresh rates are the standard in HDTV's right now, the 52-inch KDL-52XBR7 is the first 240 Hz display on the market. However, according to CNET a 240 Hz refresh rate won't be discernible to most viewers. It's not that the KDL-52XBR7 isn't a great LCD HDTV. It is. For a non-LED-based LCD TV it has deep blacks, accurate color temperature and color decoding, good dejudder video processing, great design, and a variety of connections including 4 HDMI. On the negative side, you'll pay for industry innovation. The 240 Hz refresh rate will cost you $4, 199.

Samsung Not Only The Top Selling LCD TV Maker, The Greenest Too

samsung-huge-tv.jpgSamsung is not only the manufacturer of some of the most popular HDTV lines around, VentureBeat reports that as of next year it'll also be one of the most energy efficient. HyunSuk Kim, vice president of research and development at Samsung, said at an event in San Francisco today that next year Samsung will be able to produce a 55-inch LCD HDTV that only consumes 150 Watts of energy. That's about the same as a 32-inch LCD HDTV today. Samsung was recently rated a seven out of ten on Greenpeace's scale, an impressive rating for a consumer electronics manufacturer. Just don't expect any 3D or 3840 x 2160 pixel displays to be energy efficient. We're talking about Red Touch of Colorhere.
