LG Launches New HDTVs
LG Electronics unveiled its newest SL80 series of LCDs and SL90 series LED HDTVs at the company’s Summer Line Show in New York City.
Both series feature a single edge-to-edge panel of glass over an ultra-slim bezel. LG’s Invisible Speaker design eliminates large speaker grills for a more streamlined aesthetic, according to the company.
The SL80 series uses slim CCFL technology with TruMotion 240Hz. The sets are less than 1.8 inches thick at its slimmest point. The SL80 will be available in August in 42-, 47-, and 55-inch screen sizes at MSRPs of $1,599.95, $1,899.95 and $2,799.95. The SL90 series, coming in at 1.15 inches, will be released later this year in 42- and 47-inch class screen sizes at MSRPs to be announced later.
The SL80 and SL90 series also include AV Mode II with three AV Modes, preset to optimize picture and sound settings based on cinema, sports or game content; Picture Wizard for self-calibration; and Clear Voice II, which enhances and amplifies the sound of the human voice frequency range.
