Among the bevy of announcements coming from LG’s summer line show were the SL80 and LED backlit SL90 LCDs.
An ultra slim bezel and seamless edge to edge panel are the incredible aesthetic selling points of these new TVs. The appearance of the new line is pretty impressive, but of course, what the screen looks like when it’s on is the bigger concern for consumers.
Launching this holiday season, according to LG’s press release, the SL80 features 240Hz TruMotion technology as well as a contrast ratio of 150,000:1. The SL90 isn’t officially detailed, but LG did state that it would be just over an inch thick and feature LED backlighting.
Michael Ahn, president of LG North America, said of the new televisions “Our advanced new SL80/90 HDTVs demonstrate how together innovation and design produce exceptional performance”
