LG Announces Entry Level 3-D Sets

Posted Tue May 4, 2010 at 09:00 AM PDT by Mike Attebery

The LX6500 series made its Korean debut today, with a US release expected soon.

LG's LX6500 line products are designed to act as entry level 3-D sets. They're for those customers not looking for the best of the best, but something that just plain works.

Pricing is pretty reasonable as far as 3-D televisions go. The 42 inch model costs the equivalent of $2,400 while the 55 inch set runs around $4,400.

The LX6500 has a nice slim 22mm bezel and a few internet based features, which will likely change a bit when it comes stateside. It's LED backlit, sports 240Hz tech and its energy efficient. It's not the fanciest set by any means, just a nice, solid 3-D television.

A set of 3-D glasses come with it, but extras will be available at around $110 each, or, as the Google Translated Korean press release puts it, "Built-in 3D glasses, a dog is to purchase additional quantities will be sold at 120,000 won."
