Infinia is LG's new generation of LED LCD TVs, and the 55-inch LE9500 is its flagship. It's the first LG display to be equipped for 3D, and features measurements Heidi Klum would envy. You know, if she were a TV.

With a cabinet depth of just .92 inches and an 8.5mm bezel, the LE9500 is a full LED TV with the thinness you'd normally expect from an edge-lit model. The 55-inch display supports local dimming of up to 240 addressable segments, while the Infinia LE7500 and LE5500 each offer 16 addressable segments.

LG is introducing six new LED LCD series in all: the Infinia LE9500, LE8500 and LE7500, along with the LE5500, LE5400, and LE5300. All of the series are 1080p, with the exception of the LE5300 models under 32", and most come equipped with NetCast Entertainment Access, LG's connectivity suite that's been upgraded this year to include Skype and DivX TV. The LE9500 has an ambitious refresh rate of 480Hz, the LE8500 at 240Hz, and the rest of the lineup sits at a more conventional 120Hz.

For those who aren't ready to make the jump to LED yet, LG is also refreshing its CCFL LCD line with five new series that also feature 1080p and refresh rates of up to 240Hz.

LG has announced pricing yet on either the LED or LCD sets, but they should be hitting retailers this spring/summer.

The 55" LE900 looks very nice. But in a way I wonder if the bezel-less design will look good when mounted - it very well could, but on the other hand it might look a bit weird to basically have a piece of glass mounted on your wall with no frame around it.

I'm beginning to think 2010 is going to be an amazing year for the TV world. I'm so excited to be in the market for a new one right now. I just wish all of these new ones were arriving now instead of 3-6 months from now.

Wait..is it edge lit? If so, how does it support 240 zones of local dimming?

Chris, if you could, see if you can also find out if the Infinia line is all glossy screen. I am hoping for a semi-matte screen on at least one of these top-line models like the current LH90 has............Thanks!

From what I can decipher the "Full LED Slim" is the catch phrase for full LED backlighting?

I wish we could get some more info on their lineup, along with photos. I'm really liking the styling of the one photo we have, but I'm curious about the rest of the lineup.

""Plasma TV technology is still considered the gold standard of picture quality by discerning home theater enthusiasts," said Tim Alessi, director of product development, LG Electronics USA. "LG's 2010 plasma line combines new technology, such as the TruBlack Filter and superior color accuracy, with striking new designs that are slimmer, narrower and lighter, demonstrating LG's commitment to innovation in the plasma category.""


so I guess LG admits there Plasma models will be the gold standard not there LCD models.

maybe there LCD TV technology is considered the platinum standard of picture quality?

I cringed the moment I saw those "x" stands on the new Samsung lineup. Such a shame. I thought their 2009 designs were just right.

I saw the live stream of the LG press conference today and these displays look like the bomb! Not only are they back lit local dimming LED, but they are all wireless HDMI capable with loads of connectivity that the LHX did not have. LG's CEO did a nice little Skype video teleconference demo on the flagship display in real time. I am really glad they are pursuing wireless, while Samsung seems to have bailed out of that approach. Did not see new Sony Bravia line announcements.

They have a metal finish as far as the bezel too. Yep silver bezels are back for the high end Samsung.......

Samsung stole the show with that exactly? They didn't have any "better" LCD's... they didn't even have any with LED back-lit.

Is it silver bezel? It looks like a glossy white finish. Wish they used brushed metal!

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that the bezel is metal on the 9000. I also thought they mentioned black or silver being available.

No it only comes in silver.

Here's a better image, it's very glossy if it were to be "brushed"

It would be great to see some pricing info on these new LEDs. I have a Samsung UN55B6000 sitting in my living room which I am getting ready to return (too many picture quality issues). I was going to swap it for a 55LH90, but may wait based on the feature descriptions of these new sets.

My bad...I was under the impression only the 9000 was getting the metal bezel. Samsungs site mentions metal bezels in silver or black.Wasn't trying to jack the LG post either, just doing my homework.

All kinds of confusion, sorry They stole the show with innovative products in my book, saying they will release a LED at 3/16" thick. ,( UNxxC9000 Series ). If you look above, there was a comment about Samasung, then a break and a different comment on a different subject. ( sorry for any confusion ) Either way, the bezel is not clear or white, the one on display at CES is grey, a brushed aluminum look.

Between this set (LE9500) and the new Samsung 9000 which do you guys think is thinner?

Would love to see a side by side comparison between these two top of the line models.

Me too. If they are glossy I'll go ahead and get an LH90 if they are matte I may have to wait. Price dependent of course

I hate glossy... right now I'm looking at myself as I type this on my 24" iMac

My equipment list is here. Playstation Network ID = jmii ...that's JM roman numeral 2

You can find all the images here:

http://www.lge.com/us/ces/press/product-images-he-1.jsp

It looks like they've gone the glass cover sheet route like the Tosh 670's but it's hard to tell from the pics.

It should be LED Minus. It's LED with local dimming but fewer zones than the high end models but more than no local dimming at all (that's where they get the Plus, I guess)
