LG Boasts the World's Thinnest LCD TV Panel


Most vows to sport a thinner frame don't begin until everyone starts making out their New Year's resolutions, but LG is already off and running with what it claims is the world's thinnest LCD TV.

Not that the company's previous ultra-thin LCD was flabby, but at just 2.6mm (0.1 inches) thick, LG's new 42-inch model is a full 50 percent thinner than its predecessor. It also one-ups the model it's replacing by incorporating an LED backlight system.

Other specs include full HD (1080p) with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. And as for weight? Just 4 kilograms, which converts to about 8.8 pounds.

No word yet on price or availability, though LG said it plans to display the ultra-thin set at CES next month.
