Actually the 72" is already released in some markets so it is only the question of months for general availability. But it is active 3D and it probably has shiny screen. The 72" was not a centerpiece of the LG booth, shown on side of the LW series, there is a video where it can be seen.

What is the pricing on this model? I'm considering the 75" Laservue from Mitsubishi, but having nearly that size in a local dimming LED is tempting if the price is similar.

I'm pretty sure the price is going to be ridiculously expensive (like $6000) for the 72 inch which makes it a near impossible sell to the wife

I seriously am interested in a ball park price as well.

Can someone please confirm whether LW6500 is glossy or matte? I have a very bright room... so it is a real concern for me.

Also, what about LZ9700... is it matte? Realistically, it is probably out of my price range though....

List price in the Gulf suggests the price as South of Ten Grands but not far

Picture shows it has glossy surface much as last year Infinia which was graded as sub-par for daylight viewing.

Thanks for the post;

10,000 is ridiculous and at that point, it isn't a consumer TV but rather for Businesses.

They must expect you to bargain down the price.
post #69 of 1173
I won't be able to afford $10K for sure. Hopefully in a couple of years then, when the prices come down by 50-some percent.

Any word on whether LW6500 is glossy or matte?

according to this article, 5600 and 6500 release in May.. I thought I heard March somewhere.. sucks if true

http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php...&id=1294657144

also why do I keep seeing 5600 and 5700 pop up, will both be available in the US?
post #71 of 1173
Did anyone at CES happen to ask, or have read, if the new platform for intenet Apps will be available for current LG displays with Netcast? If it is I would think that firmware update couldn't be to far away.
post #72 of 1173
Anyone know if LK450 will follow the famous LD450 with 4:4:4 support? It has an extra HDMI, but I can't tell if any other specs changed. Not sure if I should get the LD or wait a little for LK.

well I contacted LG via their email support and also live chat asking when 5600/5700 and 6500 series models will be available and they were not able to tell me. the reply from both was "new 2011 models are in pre-production or pre-order phase and specs/release info are not available"

I really hope they release around March if not sooner because the May and later dates really make it tough to wait so long.
post #74 of 1173
Does anyone have an idea how much the LW9500 will be, I can go to LG a get a demo...I want to know if its worth it first.

I have been trying to figure this one out for a while now. I'd love to be able to get some other app options. My TV came with the wand remote, but it really isn't necessary with what little Netcast offers.

I'd really like to know if LG will ever get around to supporting DTS or making the DLNA a bit more compatible with various media streamers out there... like PlayOn.
post #76 of 1173
I too emailed them but they said they couldn't tell me anything. I am interested in the LW5600 or LW6500 since it has their new 3D and is LED. I'd prefer a 55". If it's under $2000 I'll be happy.. at least when it's "old" about a year from now.

I need to make sure it has HDMI 1.4 (it must right?) and audio return channel

Any updates about pricing or availability on the 2011 LGs?
post #78 of 1173
No info on pricing or availability yet...

I did manage to find an HD video preview of the Nano LEDs from CES, where you can actually see the TVs. Can't really say too much about the video quality from an online video, other than they look decent-- from what I can tell the LW9500 seems to have a glossier screen than the LW7700-- reflections off of that TV look almost like a matte display. Off angle may be alright too...

jeez each day I go without an HD set in my bedroom I get a real itchy mouse finger when I log on to amazon

I am holding out for a new 2011 set and have so many blurays to watch that I missed the past few months..

I just want the 5xxx-6500 to come out already so I can see if these passive sets are worth it, otherwise I see myself just picking up one of the new 2011 5400 sets

I currently have a LG 47LX9500 and I'm troubled by the banding.

I was planning on buying a LG LEX because, as far as I know, it don't have the banding problem, but now I see that to have a LEX with the borderless design you have to buy a 55" or 65", there is not a 47".

My living room is not big, so a 47" is the maximum I can have. I hope LG releases a 47" with borderless design, if not, I will buy another brand sadly.

^ a new 9500 is coming out, borderless design with nano tech which promises to eliminate banding, but expect it to be very pricy when new.

During CES 2011, LG announced only a 55" and 60" of the LW9500 (borderless INFINIA design). The LW7700 series however has a 47", but a chunkier bezel (unfortunately). The LW7700 will still be 240 Hz, full local dimming (Nano branded tech.), etc.

See my confirmation on this above. There's no 47" of the borderless Infinia that Morning5 wants. There is a 47" of the LW7700 though, although it will have the thicker bezel...

Update on Pricing & Availability on LG TVs debuted at CES 2011:

You will NOT find any information about pricing or availability on any LG tv shown at CES 2011 until February 15, 2011 when LG has their releasing presser for these TVs.

They will announce pricing and approximate availability dates for the USA and Europe.

I'm assuming May for the LW7700 series and June at the earliest for the LW9500 (since they are flagship models). No point denying it, these predictions have been pretty much par for the course the last two years of LG releases. Normally a late June/early August for the flagships...

Check flatpanelsHD for confirmation on the Feb. 15th date for LG's announcements
post #84 of 1173
I'm happy to hear that we will get more information on February 15. I personally love the design of the LW7700. As my wife says, I'm a "silver-phile." I bought and returned the Samsung C8000. I loved the design, but hated the reflections and the flashlighting I found on the two I went through. Hopefully, the full led backlight and the matte screen will make the LW7700 perfect for me.

I honestly hope that LG does not make the stupid mistake of sending out those ridiculous kiosks that simply loop a video of plain text outlining the features of the tv.. almost every damn store in my area last year had these and you could not even test out the picture quality of their sets.

Please LG, send a normal tv, have instructions for stores to hook it up properly and allow both 2D and 3D content/blurays to be played and viewed.

I will not even bother with the stores in my area because I live in a sort of middle/lower class area and the quality of the Best Buy/Sears/electronics stores absolutely reflect the financial stability of the area.. basically in my local stores, the new sets come in later than they should, they are not hooked up properly, the employees have no clue about what is going on..

I will be going to the downtown Best Buy/Magnolia combo store because they will likely have the new sets hooked up for both 2D bluray and 3D content.

I think I will actually write an email to LG about last years P.O.S. kiosks.

Interesting news, looks like LG will officially announce/detail specs and EU prices for the new 2011 lineup this Friday..

You can leave questions for flatpanels to ask LG and they will try to answer them.

LW7700 + brushed aluminum = hawt!
