I would take the nano marketing hype with a grain of salt. Although LG has continued its efforts to go to market with improved BLU tech, each commercially deployed tech has its tradeoffs.
2009 - IOL:[LHX]
2010 - IOP:[LE8500, LX9500] IOL:[72LEX9] ALEF:[LEX8]
2011 - IOL:[LZ9700] ALEF:[LW9500,LW9600,LZ9600]
IOL: Integrated Optical Lens
IOP: Integrated Optical Plate
ALEF: Advanced Light Emission Film
If LG was shipping QLED tech, we would have heard about it. LG's usage of Nano tech refers to -
1. LG's granular, precision LD tech in their ALEF-enabled BLUs.
2. Improved BLU luminosity uniformity (at the BLU layer).
3. Controlled dispersion at increasingly reduced panel depths.
LG's nano tech, does not correct the multitude of LCD issues (defects, mura, motion artifacts, MEMC artifacts, cell gaps, polarizer shrinkage, film deposition residu, aging laminate misalignment, dse, etc.) that are inherent to the tech and the manufacturing processes.http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/featu...w/15348/page:2http://dsifiles.dsisystemsinc.com/Ho...wf/slide33.swfhttp://dsifiles.dsisystemsinc.com/Ho...wf/slide34.swfhttp://dsifiles.dsisystemsinc.com/Ho...wf/slide35.swfhttp://dsifiles.dsisystemsinc.com/Ho...wf/slide36.swfhttp://multimedia.digital.it/wp-cont...v/img_4441.jpg
We have yet to see how LG's ALEF-equipped panels compare with their IOL-equipped units.
Also note that LD's masking of certain defects does not apply to 3D material, as LD is disabled in most vendor 3D implementations -http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...&postcount=197
