LG's PX950 is the First THX 3D Certified TV

Criteria include color accuracy, cross-talk, and processing performance.

The latest television from LG is also the first to earn 3D certification from THX. It's THX certified in the traditional two dimensions as well, but that's far less exciting.

"THX spent more than a year in the lab developing our certification criteria and testing methodologies for 3D TVs and content," explains THX VP Rick Dean. "A THX 3D Certified TV must be capable of delivering consistent stereoscopic images with accurate color and clean processing."

LG's PX950 plasma uses the TruBlack Filter to block reflection while creating deeper blacks, and the Dual XD engine to upscale standard definition content to HD with ease. The sets also offer NetCast access, letting you watch content from Netflix, Vudu, YouTube and more.

The PX950 series is available now in two sizes. At 50 inches, you'll be shelling out $1,999 while the 60 inch set has an MSRP of $2,999.
