LG stays to be my favourite LCD producer.
Although I probably won't buy a new LCD anytime soon. I'm waiting for the first LG OLEDs.PSN/XBL: BLINX1234

It's amazing what they're doing with TVs these days. Like the huge step forward Samsung did by making the ultra-thin 850/860 plasmas.

Who gives a toss how thin it is if it looks like ass (atrocious black levels/uneven screen uniformity on dark screens, motion resolution and viewing angles)?

The astonishingly thin display isnt a slouch in the video department as one might expect. It displays video at a full 1080p resolution and at a 120Hz refresh rate. It features edge based LED backlighting and a proprietary optical film technology.PSN/XBL: BLINX1234

For all I know, LG wrote that.
As a TV brand, they're traditionally very middle of the road. I'd take them over Chinese knock-offs, but only just. The truth is those problems inherent with LCD tech will not be resolved with a thinner, lighter display. This product is more of a status symbol than a genuine item for HD enthusiasts/videophiles. I am amazed at the weight, however (under 9 pounds)...if it looks half-decent, that is quite the feat.
I'm also more interested in what LG will churn out with OLED.

LG is a headache to me. They are extremely inconsistent with their manufacturing and have horrendous quality control issues that have yet to be addressed. While they make some nice TVs, those EXACT same nice TVs can also have significant failures within an unacceptable time frame.
I've known personally 3 people with LG displays who have had them fail on them. I've installed dozens of them and have seen them with various ports that sometimes work, sometimes not - I've seen them with IR codes which hit one out of TWELVE tries... usually.
Their product simply is not of the same caliber as Panasonic, Sony, Samsung, or Sharp, but they are definitely capable of producing a good product at times.
I just wished their QC would jump WAY up and they would actually deserve to be a top display manufacturer.

Hey, my cell phone is a LG, my fridge is a LG, my toaster is a LG, my...
Anyway, one thing to remember too, is those thin TVs, not only by LG, have their circuits totally separate from the screen, and that eventualy, LG, or Pasnasonic, or Samsung, or Sony will get that technology at a level of performance that we never dreamed off. Just think of it, move the TV anywere you want on your wall from any room of your home. Just plug it to any other module already there, that's all. That's pretty cool.
And what am I saying? Don't need to plug it, it's wireless!

Unless you're hanging it on a wall, does it really matter how thin it is?

Sounds cool, but if I can get equal or better PQ for less, I don't mind getting something that may be a little thicker.Sony Bravia KDL-40S2010

Now if they can make custom frames available for it and have it activate to a mirror finish I could really talk the wife into a TV for the bedroom. That would DEFINITELY help to sell more TVs. Put it over the fireplace as a nice large mirror, but then touch the power button and the mirror goes away and you are left with a nice looking HD display.
THAT would sell pretty well if the price was right I would think.
