SEOUL, South Korea, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Further setting the pace in the large-area thin-film-transistor liquid crystal displays (TFT-LCDs) space, LG.Philips LCD Co., Ltd. today unveiled its latest TFT-LCD offering for HDTVs, the 52W, a 52-inch wide-screen model. The largest TFT-LCD to ever be demonstrated, the 52W has a superior resolution of 1920 x 1080, featuring 2.07 million pixels -- more than seven times a standard definition (SD) television and twice as many as that found in many HDTVs -- ultimately delivering the best image available for TFT-LCDs. Leveraging the company's Super-In-Plane-Switching (S-IPS) technology, the 52W also boasts the world's widest viewing angle (176 degrees), with a minimum of color shift and incorporates a modern, "wide" aspect ratio of 16:9.

The proof of the pudding is, alas, in the eating. Cost is a major factor, but actual "purchas-ability" is equally big.


Still, that's a mega leapfrog over Samsung, a 30% increase in diagonal! Wow!

This is exciting news, if only to show how far TFT-LCD scale-up has come in

a very short time. I'm becoming suspicious, however, about LG's ability to

produce. I have been trying to see their 52" and 60" LCD RPTV's for at least

a year since they were "introduced", and no dealer can get any real info on

them. If the competition is as strong as the reports say, this announcement

should generate some great products from everyone in the next year.

Discussed in an article and other threads, worth mentioning here. Mass production is a year away. That puts products into 2004 at the earliest.

Yes. We think so. It's probably the same as the Zenith. It's kinda mediocre. If size and wall hanging are your only criteria, great. Otherwise, skip it and buy a 50".
