LG has commercial versions of their TVs that are for hotels/hospitals/etc. These appear to have the same model number as their regular TVs, except with a "C" at the end of the model number. For example, I'm thinking of getting a 26LD350 TV, which has been discontinued, but the commercial version (26LD350C) is still available.


Is there any difference between the commercial version and consumer version of a TV? Are the color settings different out of the box, or something? Also, do you think it'd be more likely or less likely for the commercial version to have an IPS panel?

I have heard that commercial tv's have modified tuners so that they only get a couple of stations (especially if they're for hotels, etc) and some of the features that are available in consumer sets are disabled or missing altogether. That keeps the costs down for the commercial sets and makes them not too attractive for getting stolen.

The "main problem" with buying commercial TV's is finding one. Panasonic is almost the only one that "likes" the average Joe Consumer getting hold of their plasma.


If you do find that LG, read the manual cause their might be several features disabled.

Commercial or professional models of TV have components with better quality components in order to reduce their failurate since they are used for displays in retail establishments such as for menus in a fast food restaurant. This makes them more expensive. The institution models for hotels etc AFAIK are custom built models since their requirements institution specific.
