Yeah, that is the real risk I see: something truly beautiful is made, but the marketing guys just don't see it selling, so it dies on the vine after making a big splash among enthusiasts. There is one possible advantage here, and that is that LG is a somewhat more driven company than Toshiba when it comes to the TVs. Toshiba has moved very heavily into laptops and cheap TVs for Walmart and CostCo. LG is not doing that: they have Samsung squarely in their sights and are itching to pull the trigger.

Only time will tell, I guess.

Good point- I hope it makes a difference this time around. If it does make it to production, I'll be a very interested customer.

You 'n' me both, MonkeyMafia.

I have several industry friends attending CES and they've promised me detailed reports on the LEX8 and Panasonic's new VT30s, so I'm crossing my fingers and waiting for January.

Well, my HT build is timed perfectly to pick one of these beauties up - I guess I'm third in line!

What, IMO, is important is that LG also has a 55" in this model range. So it definitely doesn't look like a limited edition gimmick model.

More good news is LG bringing to the US two different 3D Nano models at 3 sizes each......the 480Hz LW9500 series & the 240Hz LW7700 series....each model will have 47-inch, 55-inch AND......most interestingly......a 60-inch model as well, which I believe is a brand new LCD Panel size for LG, IIRC

I'd be interested in a 60 if they can keep the price reasonable...

No, it is not Nano - it is along the Infinia line. It remains to be seen if it comes without the problems of Infinia line: banding, 3D crosstalk, 1080/24Hz and so on.

I wonder how much the 47 inch 7700 nano series will cost

and also if any other full array local dimming sets are planned other than the 7 and 9 series

I get the banding comment - I have an LE8500 so can't comment on 3D - but I am puzzled by the 1080P24 comment. The 55LE8500 handles this content with no problem.

Looking forward to Nano line to see some real reviews.

The 72 incher is 480 Hz - its ancestor would be then the Infinia LE9500 series, not the LE8500. The LE9500 series has problem with the 1080p/24Hz content and you are right that the LE8500 does not have it - which is even more puzzling asking question what those LG guys are doing there: increasing the rate up to 480Hz to screw up the display of 24Hz ??. The source also lists other problems which if present in the 72 incher would make buying it unreasonable: uneven backlight uniformity; adjustable dejudder doesn't work well; subpar bright-room performance; benefits of 480Hz difficult to discern; washed-out image with no picture adjustments in 3D mode; 3D exhibited ghost images along edges (crosstalk);One can add to this really glossy screen of the LE9500, if the LZ9700 inherits it, the set will not be worth the money at all.

I don't know what firmware version CNET was testing on, but it appears LG has fixed the issue on the LX9500. It now perform proper 5:5 pulldown on 24p sources with TruMotion turned off, just like the LE8500. My 9500 does not exhibit the 2:3 hitching motion that CNET describes, even when using test patterns.

OK, one + more for the LG. Now if the 72" is not doubling as a giant mirror it will get serious buying recommendation .

Interestingly enough, digitalversus.com has only just reviewed the LX9500. You can see the comparisons with the LEX8 here: http://www.digitalversus.com/duels.p...p2=10173&ph=15.

Saw the TV's at CES. I couldn't find a LEX8. But they had 2 TV's with NanoLED signs next to them - see http://www.i4u.com/43987/lg-lw9500-a...debut-ces-2011

Frankly they were not as impressive in image quality or bezel appearance to the Samsung UN55D8000 series which will come in 46, 55, 60 and 65 inches and will have a 0.2 inch wide bezel. Simply gorgeous design and image quality even though they are edge lit with some extra micro dimming technology.

According to http://flatpanelshd.com/news.php?sub...&id=1296297933, no LEX8 coming to Europe. Yet it was already reviewed by digitalversus.com (French site) 2 months ago, and one of the comments to the above article claims it's already for sale in Paris for 5 KiloEuros. http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news/sho...t=3,4,39,44,62

Ja! Ja!

Hi,

I too read that article but funnily enough, the LG UK Blog team at AVForums(UK) stated that the LEX-8 will be coming to Europe but later on in the year so we have two conflicting statements from different LG teams - who/what to believe?
