Look Ma, No Wires

LG has brought wireless to some of its new LCD HDTVs. The flagship 55-inch, 55LHX (shown, $4799) offers wireless operation of up to 30 feet between the supplied media box to which the sources are connected (shown on the right in the photo) and the set itself. Just as important for enthusiasts, however, is the set's LED backlighting with local dimming, for a claimed 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.

The LHX model is less than 1" thick at its thinnest point, is THX certified, has TruMotion 240Hz technology, and offers IFccc calibration options, including the choice between a 2-point and 10-point calibration. It is also Energy Star 3.0 compliant. Available soon.

LG’s LH85 series of wireless LCD HDTVs will also be available later this fall, in 47-inch ($2399) 55-inch ($3199) sizes.
