LG’s Ultra Slim Local Dimming Wireless LCD

Posted Mon Sep 14, 2009 at 08:00 AM PDT by Mike Attebery

Adding to an already impressive assortment of wireless LCDs at CEDIA, LG’s LH series is now officially available in the US.

Sneaking in cheaper than Sony’s comparable wireless display offerings, and with local dimming, rather than edge lighting is LG’s newest offering, the 55LHX. Boasting THX Display Certification and at less than one inch thick, the LHX is an impressive display.

The 55LHX features a reported contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 and incorporates TruMotion 240Hz technology. LG says the 55LHX will be available “soon” and will retail for $4,799.

At a lower price, but lacking in LED backlighting, is the LH85 series. The LH85 series features LG’s 24p Real Cinema technology, and an 80,000:1 contrast ratio. Shipping this fall at $3,199 for a 55” display and $2,399 for a 47” screen, the LH85 line may stand to be the more competitive of the two during the upcoming holiday season.
