Just like the headline reads, the LG LH90 has been named the first THX Display certified LCD television.

There’s no two ways about it, LG’s having a good year. Their sales are at a record high across the board, profits increased in their home entertainment department, where many other companies are suffering, and according to a press release sent out earlier today, the LH90 has been named as the first THX Display certified LCD television.

The 240hz capable LH90 features LED backlighting with local dimming for precise picture control and a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio ensuring a ridiculously good picture. According to Peter Reiner, VP of marketing , “LG's advanced LED Backlight technology precisely controls the brightness of specific areas of the screen, providing crisper, clearer pictures while using less energy than traditional LCD models.” Additionally, the THX Movie Mode offers customers a one button solution to getting the best color, black levels and a nice clean signal.

Ranging between $1900 for a 42” model and $3200 for a 55”, the LH90 is in stores now.
