A few years ago, LCD TVs were the "in" thing. Much like tablets are today, in fact. HDTVs were coming out of every pore in the consumer electronics universe, with most companies fighting to see who could produce one thinner and lighter than the next. That race has slowed dramatically since, with most companies shifting focus to 3D and other advanced features. But LG is still in the thin-and-light race, and the new E90 monitor is one of the slimmest ever.


This is LG's slimmest LED monitor yet, with just 7.2mm of depth. It has a fast 2ms response time, great for fast-action content or gaming, and the slim design utilizes some interesting design cues. LG has placed the power supply and socket connecting the monitor with the PC on the back of the stand (called EZ-cabling), and it also uses 40% less energy than competing monitors. Exact specifications are not being released, nor is a price. This is mostly a concept monitor designed to draw attention to LG's innovations, and hopefully more will be revealed at CES 2011. A video below is about as close as we'll get until then.

LG Unveils E90, An Unbeatably Slim LED Monitor

(SEOUL=Korea Newswire) December 13, 2010 -- LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled its new E90 monitor, the company's slimmest LED monitor to date at just 7.2 mm in depth.

With more and more consumers watching movies and videos on their desktop PCs, the quality of the monitor is more important than ever before. The E90 is easily the best choice for watching action movies or sporting matches because with a response time of just 2 milliseconds, the monitor's display remains clear and bright even during fast-moving action sequences. And LG's Image Booster software, blurry streaming content from video sites such as YouTube are significantly enhanced so they look terrific on the E90's vivid display.

"The E90 is the result of advanced technology and beautiful design coming together in perfect alignment," said Si-hwan Park, Vice President of LG's monitor division. "With its revolutionary features in terms of design and picture quality, the E90 is the leading example of the company's "SUPER LED" monitor line that is setting new benchmarks for style and performance."

In keeping with its ultra slim design, the LG E90 places the power supply and the socket connecting the monitor with the PC on the back of the stand, an innovation called EZ-cabling. In addition to the reduced footprint offered by its light weight and slim size, the E90 manages to reduce both energy consumption – as much as 40 percent less than conventional CCFL-backlit LCD monitors – and use of hazardous materials such as halogen and mercury in its manufacturing.

LG's newest monitor will be on display at the 2011 CES Innovations Awards, where it will be recognized as an "Honoree" product in the computer peripherals category.

The E90 will be available starting this month in select markets.

I guess they're trying to bring "Sexy Back" to monitors, I still doubt the chrome finish will make it to production, but it sure does looks sweet!!

It's just like when Apple laptops spurred and everyone wanted the glossy finish. People are attracted to shiny things even if its functionality is worse than say the "dull" matte look.

Did anyone else notice the sign posted on the back of the spinning acrylic display that said not to photograph it?

Why would you take such a pretty screen to a public venue and not want people to take it's photo?

soldier if you havent noticed, pretty much everyone is poor. Personally i find nothing wrong with the good old Sony Triton 24" CRTs aside from having to have a sturdy desk and space to put them.

He posts the same thing on every, or almost every LCD screen story that is put up here. Maybe he figures if he keeps repeating it, we'll all get religion and forget to pay our rent just to buy a screen like his. He is awesome, his wicked-ass screen says so.

I am tempted to get a new monitor like this. They just keep getting cheaper, and I can't seem to bring myself to do it. Anyone with an LED want to tell me how much of a difference it makes?
