LG Announces New Ultra-Slim SL80 LCD and SL90 LED HDTVs Edge-to-Edge Glass, 3,000,000:1 Contrast Ratio, Internet-Connected Widgets

It would certainly seem that the latest in HDTV technology has
gravitated to LED technology. With plasma seeming to have gone the way
of the Betamax and more and more manufacturers toting the LCD screens as
their bargain sets, LED is set to become the next big thing. LG has
announced that it is ready to up the ante with its latest product
ranges, the new LCD SL80 Series and the high-end LED SL90 Series.

Both the SL80 and SL90 series feature a single edge-to-edge panel of
glass over an ultra-slim bezel that gives the display an almost seamless
look by eliminating the more traditional wide frame around the screen.
LG has also integrated their Invisible Speaker to further amp the
aesthetics by eliminating large speaker grills on the front bezel.

As with all of LG's 2009 HDTVs, the SL80 features Smart Energy Savings
technology. The SL80 meets the newest Energy Star 3.0 ratings and also
comes equipped with Intelligent Sensor, which senses the ambient light
in the room and adjusts color and brightness accordingly.

The SL80 series utilizes slim CCFL technology with TruMotion 240Hz to
achieve its dramatically thin profile and provide superior picture
quality. Delivering consumers a compelling visual experience, the SL80
series is less than 1.8 inches thick at its slimmest point.

LG will introduce the SL90 series of Full HD 1080p LED HDTVs, later this
year. At only 1.15 inches thin, the SL90 offers consumers a sleek, slim
LED. With the SL90's 3,000,000:1 LED Mega Contrast Ratio, consumers are
sure to have no complaints about poor image quality with this one. The
SL90 series also features LG's TruMotion 120Hz to reduce motion blur and
create more natural looking images.

The SL80 will be available beginning in August in 42-, 47-, and 55-inch
class screen sizes at MSRPs of $1,599.95, $1,899.95 and $2,799.95
respectively. The SL90 series will be released later this year in 42-
and 47-inch class screen sizes at MSRPs to be announced later.
