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!

Great post Irkuck and Sonyorsammy, thanks for the information

From FlatPanelsHD: "LG also says that the Nano technology has none of the banding issues that we found in our LE8500 review in 2010."

Can someone please explain why does the 55" have 2304 leds versus the 47" 1440? is it only because the 55" is bigger and -needs- more leds, or do we need to pay a premium price to have +-1000 more leds than the smaller one, obtaining a better picture quality?

LG's NANO Light dispersion explained!

This makes total sense now... the nano film has various grooves per led zone to 'channel' the light towards smaller (micro) points on the screen, and directly towards the screen, not to the sides or top or bottom of each zone... thus removing any uniformity, bleed, or cloud issues.

I thought the LE8500 and LX9500 did a superb job at dispersion already... with the increased zones and led count in the NANO series... this video makes it look much more promising.

how did last years locally dimmed LGs compare to the Sony 909?

ive heard the 909 as being the best locally dimmed set of 2010 so i'd like input on how LG compares with Sony.

thanks.

gaaah I am frustrated from waiting so long for the new LG's to come out.. and I am even more frustrated that I am poor, jobless, and tv'less.

Wish I could get a nano set but I will probably aim for a 5600 or 6500 when they drop a bit.. I wonder what the pricing will be and when exactly we can expect them in stores in the US

Did an official source ever confirm that pricing info would be released by LG today? I haven't seen any mention of it outside this forum.

The official source was/is flatpanelsHD... they were on the mark with their Sony MSRP release dates that they announced well ahead of time. Looks like they may have received the LGs, but have yet to produce the article.

Patience!

CORRECTION: Actually the dates for the LG release of MSRP were February 15-16th... they may still be on the mark for today/tomorrow at the latest!

We received some pricing information for the new LG TVs today. These prices are listed under the minimum advertised price (MAP) field, but it seems odd that we would have the MAPs before the MSRPs. Take them with a grain of salt.

42LK450 $699.99
42LK520 $799.99
42LK530 $899.99

You could build a fancy home theater for that price.

If Sharp keeps the promise to bring soon 70 inchers in the range of $5K, we will see one the deepest&fastest price cuts in LG history.

Yeah in Seoul, South Korea, LG electronics start to ship new LW5700 model which is domestic model name for LW5600 in Korea.
It has 42/47/55 models and seems like cheaper than Samsung D8000 series by ~$1,000 USD or so.

Looks like they give 6 3D glasses for 4 adults and 2 kids since the the price for the glass is very cheap?

I attached some photos taken during press release held two days ago.

LOL, That is ONE big grain of salt. at that price point, it is no longer a consumer product but rather a business one.

All my hopes and dreams are now in Sharps hands......

I would have loved to have had that 72" but actually 65" is fine for me. $4500 isn't exactly cheap, but its certainly more palatable than $10k.

LG Nanoled have impressive colours and viewing angle:

Watch this video and

stop playing at 0:27 - 0:30 to evaluate viewing angle of lw7700.

stop playing at 0:43 to see the red of the ferrari F1

stop playing at 1:00 to see the girl

72LZ9700 $9,999.99

Awesome!!!

My goal was to get the 55LW6500 and the 55LW5600 if the 6500 was too expensive, but with a retail of $2,699 I think in a year's time it will be under $1500 if the previous years 6500 is any indicator (was MSRP $3,599.99 and now $1500 for the 55LX6500)

What's the 55LW7700 and 9500?

That's looking like a good possibility. The Sharp prices we received today are a LOT lower than the LG's. Again, I can't say if what we have are MAP or MSRP, but either way the Sharp's are looking a lot better, including the 70"

That's a bit strange. From the LG Korea specs the number of blocks are as follows -

47LW9500 216
55LW9500 240
47LEX8 240
55LEX8 288
72LEX9 480
http://www.lge.co.kr/upload/COKR/pro...roductList.xml
http://www.lge.co.kr/upload/BRAND/IN...roductList.xml

The number of blocks can be found under PRODUCT_SPEC-->Local Dimming(xxx)

That is the first ship date (planned/actual availability date), and one of many first ship dates spanning 2010 in the above docs.
You are going to have to do a liitle more analysis for your observation to be considered.

As can be seen in both of these current feeder docs for the Korean market (and you can also check the individual derivative product pages), the 47LW9500/55LW9500 models are nano step-down models from the 47LEX8/55LEX8 (as reflected in the pricing differential) and have less blocks/zones as I pointed out.

How reliable is the information from FlatpanelsHD?
They claim they will do thorough testing of the input lag on the nano led models. (http://www.flatpanelshd.com/article....&id=1296297933, at the end of the questions section)
I would like to know if they really test them and if their results are reliable.
