High end LG SL90 gets pricing
LG today provided final information for the American launch of its SL90 TVs. The new models will now be priced at $2,099 for the 42-inch version and $2,599 for the 47-inch edition. Both represent LG's new "seamless" design that makes the display surface flush with the bezels and are some of LG's most advanced sets, with LED backlighting that boosts their contrast ratios to 3,000,000:1. They also refresh at a fast 240Hz and have cabinets are thinner than many at 1.15 inches deep.
Despite the pricing, LG is still vague on when the SL90 will ship and says only that the two displays should be ready for the fall. Their equivalents, the SL80s, use fluorescent backlights and are already available.
