LG's Top of the Line LED-based LCD 3D TV Available for Shipping

Sep 8, 2011 Cnet News has reported from CEDIA trade show in Indianapolis, that LG announced the availability of the 55LW9800, its best 2011 LED-based LCD TV and the first on the market to combine a full-array LED local dimming backlight and passive 3D. The top of the line 55-inch TV can be ordered for $3,799.

The 55LW9800 is the successor to the well-reviewed LX9500 from 2010, a full-array model with active 3D. LG had announced high-end local dimmers for the U.S. market at CES in January under the LW7700 and LW9500 series names, but subsequently said it would scuttle those sets--which used active 3D technology--in favor of a TV with passive 3D.

The new Nano backlighting technology, used in this model, is claimed to address previously observed backlight uniformity issues.
According to the press release, "The Nano full LED display employs a thin film incorporating a full array of LEDs, giving it more uniform light distribution and detailed local dimming from over two hundred addressable sectors."

Cnet is expecting the 55LW9800 TV for a full test next week and will be publishing full review.
