LG Announces Two New 3D HDTV Lines

Posted Thu Jul 15, 2010 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Both lines feature LED backlighting, 3D capability, and come in 47 and 55 inch sizes.

LG's new LX6500 line of televisions is fully 3D capable and is packed with plenty of other cool features too. It uses LED edge lighting and local dimming to achieve a contrast ratio of 8,000,000:1, for example. It also sports TruMotion 240Hz smoothing technology and a 2ms response time.

You can pick up the 47 inch LX6500 for an MSRP of $2,699 while the 55 goes for $3,499.

The LX9500 steps things up pretty significantly. It's got a bezel of less than an inch, which gives it a very clean look. It upgrades the edge lighting to full LED backlighting with 240 different segments. It adds TruMotion 480Hz tech and a response time of just one millisecond.

The 9500 also adds support for the Magic Motion control system. If you're so inclined, you can ditch the traditional remote and wave your hands to control your television.

The 47 inch LX9500 runs $4,300, while the 55 inch model sells for $5,400.
