LCD Roundup Sticky  

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I just thought it may be worth while listing all the current and announced large form factor LCDs (=> 30") in one thread before the next slew of announcements (presumably at CES). I paid special attention to diagonal size, resolution and total unit size. I'm sure I missed a few so please add any that come to mind, thanks!

Thanks Alex... long time listener, first time caller. I am shopping in the 32"-42" panel range in the upcoming 6-12 months, and I prefer the fill factor of LCD over plasma at my 8' viewing distance (or HD plasma if money were no object.) I read the forum daily and scour the net for great panels at great prices, and I anxiously await the inevitable price drops and performance/size increases. They're getting close to the point of making my trigger finger itch. April 15, '04 will probably direct my financial decision making (for better or worse...)

Here are a few more displays for the roundup in the available 29"-32" range. As a new member, I cannot post links--maybe someone can fill them in for me.

Medion 30 (30" 1280 x 768)
(find info from a seller on videogon)
Dimensions 35" W x 3.01" D x 18.5" H

Dell W3000 (30" 1280 x 768 probably a rebadge?)
see dell.com
Dimensions H: 19" x W: 40" x D: 3.8"

Panasonic TC32-LH1 (32" 1280 x 720 (!))
see panasonic.com
Dimensions ?

Gateway 30" LCD (30" native resolution = ? must be a rebadge)
see gateway.com
Dimensions 32.6"H x 16.18"W (sic) x 4.13"D (I think they transposed W/H)

Cheers!

Regarding the 1920x1080 displays I think we should
differentiate between 'demonstrated' or 'paper propaganda
war', and commercial announcment meaning products coming
to shops.

In this sense only AU Optronics was announced, coming
to shops in Taiwan in Q1/04 with list price 299 kNT$.

55" from LG and 57" from Samsung are on the propaganda
war level and it is probably not the end of it, next salvo from
LG.

I whole heartedly concur- potential shoppers should definitely take those announcements mentioned with a grain of sand. Over the last year we've seen major announcements (i.e., Samsung 54" at CES 2003), but with the product(s) being so far out (Mid 2005 for general availability) the spec will almost certainly change from what's said today. The reasons I include the announcements (as segregated from existing products) is to give people a taste of things LCD to come in preparation for CES, and also to minimize the need to searching for all these announcements from various threads here- that I had to shuffle through in order to compile.

Alex, LG showed a 52" prototype.

Then then showed a 55" prototype seemingly to "beat" Samsung, who had even gone so far as to give their 54" a product moniker.

I no longer know if LG intends to ship 52" or 55" and I no longer know if Samsung intends to ship 54" or 57".

The roundup is cool. FWIW, though, I don't think an AUO or CMO-branded model has even a 1% chance of shipping here in the U.S. Instead, both of those panels will doubtless be OEMed by someone else who will bring them here.

Sony has announced two new LCD panels, 42" and 32". Both of which can be seen here.

They were posted in the Flat Panel Display thread with 1394, ATSC tuner thread above.

FYI - the specs are out on the gateway model. It is 1280x768, DVI, dual component, rgb etc etc. It looks identical to the Dell. In fact, I believe they are the same manufacturer - even the lights and switches are in the same place. I just ordered one. Some specs are here:

LG announced a 42" before the 50+" sizes. A quick search here turned up the following thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...ighlight=42+lg
It is indicated that this may show up as a product some time next year.

Also, the current model Zenith 30" is the L30W36.

FYI

a link to this thread will be added to the FAQ and this thread will remain open, but will soon be 'unstuck'

I notice on the LCD roundup that the Phillips 30PF9975 is called "LG rebrand". What does that mean?
I just bought this Phillips at a great deal (< $1,900.) to be a decent quality LCD for a very small living room. The perfomance is OK, the cabinet not sleek, and I am thinking of returning it.
Any opinions on this TV?
If its the LG 30" with Phillips "shell" and name, then its really a fab deal!

LG-Philips is a conglomerate brand name. Usually a good deal of high end LCD products are distributed in Asia simply branded as LG, the Korean company that makes the displays and sells them to the rest of the world slightly re-packaged (LG-Philips) or totally re-integrated (e.g., some Dell, Apple parts). This does not mean, however, that Philips Electronics of the Netherlands had not substantively contributed Intellectual Property to any given LG product.
post #16 of 19
because my next HDTV display will be a 1920 x 1080 LCD whose width (speakers on the bottom) is less than 40" (due to cabinet restrictions). When it looked like there would be a lot of 40" monitors, I was fine. Now that it looks like 42" is becoming the norm, I'm worried that I'll have to fall back to 37". Does anyone agree with this trend, and will there be 37" full HD resolution panels anytime soon?

Don't know how current this is - the LT37HVi is shown as LT37HVS elsewhere on the site:
