LG50 Series

The LG50 series are the entry level 1080p LCDs from LG for 2008/2009. The full HD resolution and larger available sizes set the 37LG50, 42LG50, 47LG50 and 52LG50 apart from the previouslt mentioned lines. 24hz "real cinema" processing and a 15,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio are other step ups.

New from LG for 2009

LG LHX Series

The LHX series is less than one inch deep. Apparently this model will come with an accompanying set top box which houses the units processing boards. The 2009 CES honoree continues the ultra thin tradition of the LG 47LGX from the end of 2008. The 120Hz processing included on the previous model is still present but is presented in the form 240Hz TruMotion – which is based on a technology that gives you an effective 240Hz, but not a factual 240Hz.

LG LH90 Series

The LH90 series is a line of high end LCDs from LG for 2009. These TVs are 1080p panels that boast 240Hz TruMotion processing and a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio.

LG LH30 Series

The LH30 series is another line of LCDs from LG for 2009. It is a 1080p panel with 24p (2:2 pulldown) film processing but doesn't include the 120Hz dejudder processing of some of the more expensive models. We expect that this line of LCDs will offer a 1080p panel in larger sizes at a good price point.
