So the nano LEDs are supposed to eliminate banding, but what about blooming?

I don't think blooming will be eliminated but should be reduced significantly due to the increased zone count. All depends how they implement the algorithms to take advantage of those zones.

I'm inclined to say those are European release dates since it was a European centric event. US/Asia dates could be the same, but it would be nice to have an independent confirmation.

I think people will be happy with matte option on 7700 line too.

I own a LX9500 and the anti blooming of this tv is very good.

Same here. If I can get one for around $1300 come a year from their release date I'll be happy

Seems so, the only one's we know of are 47" and 55" from LG.
There are 60" models available from Samsung with similar "borderless" desgins (D8000 series). Maybe that's what you're thinking about.

Built a new home, now filling it with sights and sounds!

For what it's worth, the company I work at put out an LG transition sheet today. A lot of the models match up with what flatpanelshd has listed, a few models are a month sooner than they have.

Do you remember if the 7700 is still targeted for May?

will the matte screen of the LW7700 have any negative effect on image quality?...also will the LW9500 have the same ultra shiny/reflective screen as the 2010 models?...hopefully not, as it was a bit too glossy for my tastes

If I remember correctly, LG claimed that they improved the AR coatings on their 2011 models. I think I read about it on one of the CNet write-ups from CES.

Regarding the 7700...I had an LH90 for a while. Great TV. The semi-matte screen doesn't have any negative PQ aspects to it--it won't pop in bright light conditions like a shiny screen LCD would, but you won't have the reflections, either. (It can still get plenty bright, however)

Not sure how Sony patented it's OptiContrast display, but that's pretty much the best AR glossy screen out there for LCD's/Plasma's.

May for the LZ9700 also.
I wish we had some information on the prices, but I haven't seen anything on it yet. I'm also very curious as to how much the 72" will cost. Way out of my price range for sure, but one can dream!

I dream of the day I can convince my wife to let me buy a 72". Our 47" LG LCD will have to suffice for now

The only argument is that in some cases bigger is better. But seriously LG 72" is too risky a bet to even dream about it now, it has to be cold-blood tested first. LZ9700 is based on the last year LX technology which suffered from a list of problems: shining, banding, 3D crosstalk. Even the local dimming had problem in that it was switched off in 3D showing mediocre blacks of LG panel tech. If present, these nasties enlarged on 72" will lead to conclusion that bigger is sometimes much worse after testing it.

The article only mentions up to 55" for 6500 series. What happened to 65"? I am really anxious for 65LW6500

Don't forget that this website is Scandanavian and your reading the English version and often Europe doesn't get the larger panels. Code Numbers are different and often some of the features and cosmetic design may be also, much like the N. American panels don't get PVR's built-in.

The 2011 LG Nano # of LEDs Revealed!

LED COUNT
2010 IOP (LE8500/LX9500): 1200 LEDS (55"); 864 LEDS (47")
2011 NANO (LW7700/LW9500): 2304 LEDS (55"); 1440 LEDS (47")

ZONE COUNT
2010 IOP (LE8500/LX9500): 240 (55"); 216 (47")
2011 NANO (LW7700/LW9500): 288 (55"); 240 (47")

This makes the 2010 IOP style local dimming tvs have 5 LEDS per zone, while the new NANO style local dimming on the 2011 models have 8 LEDS per zone in the 55" models.

Official MSRP pricing to be announced February 15th... stay tuned!
