LG LH90 LED-Backlit HDTV Range Launches

LG's LH90 LED-backlit TV range, mentioned at CES, has finally launched. For those swayed by such claims, the LH90 series comprise the first THX-certified LED-backlit TVs.

55in, 47in or 42in panels are available, all obviously offering a Full HD 1080p resolution. Thanks to the use of LED-array backlighting the LH90 series claims a not-inconsiderable 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio in addition to local dimming. An ambient light sensor enables automatic backlight adjustment to suit ambient conditions. ISF-calibration is available, so getting a decent image shouldn't be too difficult.

24Hz playback is supported along with TruMotion 240Hz processing (equating to 200Hz in a UK model, it's worth pointing out). Four HDMI ports should cater for all but the most comprehensive home cinema set-ups and a USB port provides for playback of MP3 audio and DivX HD video.

In the US the LH90 is prices at $3,199.95 (£1,935), $2,399.95 (£1,451) and $1,899.95 (£1,149) for the 55in, 47in and 42in models respectively. No word on a UK release, but it would be surprising if there wasn't one soon enough.

When a 240hz TV is set to 200hz in the UK.. do the UK models still do 240hz when you input 60hz or 24hz? They have to right?

Was about to ask the same thing! Aren't my blu's 24p? and would therefore need 240hz?


Also is this proper 200/240hz? Apparently Samsungs and Sony's do it 'properly' and the others use a blanking method to achive it?
