Don't get us wrong, we know that JVC is a trusted name in consumerelectronics, but it's hardly the first name we think of whenconsidering a new TV. When big brands such as Sony, Samsung and Sharpsoaking up the ad time, it's oftentimes hard to remember that JVC is inthe mix. Of course, all that could change thanks to one set, but we'dargue the pricing needs to be aligned with current market demand beforeanyone eyes it seriously.



Announced this past week at the CEDIA Expo in Atlanta, Georgia, thesuper sleek, super-thin LT-32WX50 is easily one of the thinnesttelevisions we've ever seen. It's only available in 32" form, butreally, that means this could be the perfect HDTV/big screen LCDmonitor for gaming and movie watching. It features a 1080p panel, so ifyour GPU were up to the task, you could play Half-Life 2: Episode 2 onhere in full resolution. Talk about inducing envy!

Other specifications include a 12.5lb. chassis, RS-232C port for homeautomation installs, an edged-light LED backlight system, a wide colorgamut, two HDMI ports, a VGA socket and a price tag that'll make youcringe. The set measures just 6.4mm at its thinnest point, and as youcan tell from the picture, it can easily be hung or mounted thanks toits small dimensions and light weigh. The only issue is the near-$3000price point, but at least you've got until November to save up!

That would make a great monitor if it were about 8x cheaper. :)

Wow that is thin! I still have not done the HD thing. I have worked with LCD display and plasma displays in several areas on a professional end. I at that time did not feel that they were really very desirable. Now that we have gotten to the 240hz refresh rates, I am starting to get interested. I also like the packages (super thin) that are now hitting the market. However; I also think OLED displays will be out rather soon. I think I will make my purchase sometime after that. A true LED screen vs a LCD backlit by LED screen is more to my preference. I probably won't buy one but I do plan on buying a high refresh backlit when they hit the market it will drive the price down rather quickly. Of course my 2 desktops dipays and laptop all run 1920 x 1080 at good refresh rates now.

32 inch....for that price? I don't care how thin it is...because if that's all they got, then JVC is really behind its competitors.

I know that it's priced crazy, but with all tech you are paying for R&D with the highest end stuff. It will come down in price and a few years later we may all be looking at these thin LCDs.

Personally I'd prefer to have my TV's thinness not measured that way, but in terms of the borders:

Especially with ATI's new Eyefinity. 3-6 of those would go perfect together.

I'll not pay the "New-Tax", thank you. It's a nice looking screen though and will go good on my 2 desktops,.....when I can afford two of them. (5 or 6 years? LOL!) It's so darn thin that I would be afraid that I would break it when handling it.

JVC's quality is certainly not in question though. I have a portable 3-CD music player that I got from them 15 years ago and it still sounds outstanding and works perfectly.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
