LG Launches Ultra-Slim 3D LED Backlit LX9500

It’s the world’s first Full LED 3D television and it’s nearly bezel free.

LG’s new LX9500 is a fantastic looking set. It’s nice and slim, to start with. Even the 55” model, the largest in the line, is a mere 22.3 millimeters thick. What makes it even more attractive is the extremely small 16mm bezel.

It’s LED backlit, and the largest model features 1,200 individual LEDs. It sports 480Hz TruMotion technology and DLNA compliance. It comes with two sets of 3D glasses, which offer a 40 hour battery life.

When LG says that the LX9500 is the first Full LED 3D television, it can rub people the wrong way. After all, it’s an LCD TV with LED backlighting and it’s not the first one to come out in 3D. The hair that LG is splitting is that between edge-lit LED displays and fully backlit LED displays.

Like most LG products, the LX9500 is hitting Korea first before moving over to the US. Pricing isn’t too surprising, but obviously the new sets aren’t cheap. The 47” version of the LX9500 is selling for the equivalent of $4,134, but that number is expected to drop before it hits US shores.
