It was another big step for the growing 3D TV trend today when South Korea’s second largest electronics company LG, announced the release of it’s latest backlight LED 3D TV.
Available to buy in Korea from today the 72LEX9 has (as the model number suggests) 72-inches of visual delight, this makes it the worlds largest commercially sold 3D TV with LED backlight. Now before we get corrected its the largest with LED backlight, not the largest 3D TV. That title is held by Mitsubishi with their Diamond WD-82838 82-inch 1080p 3D DLP HDTV, that has been on the shelves since Spring 2010.
Back to the 72LEX9, LG provided it with features such as: 480Hz TruMotion panel, full LED backlight, 10,000,000:1 contrast ratio, wireless AV link and DLNA. It will also contain four HDMI ports and one USB with YouTube and Google Picasa support. Stereoscopic 3D glasses will be required but it is not known if they will come with the TV.
Like we said Korea have had first look at the LG, but the rest of us will have to wait until the second quarter of 2011. Head over to CrunchGear for more information and to see some pictures of this monster TV.
