Ryan’s next PC gaming monitor? Perhaps not, but this 84-inch 4K UHDTV from LG is drool worthy nonetheless. The LG 84LM9600 is a promising advancement of TV technology.

Consumer electronics manufacturer LG has taken the wraps off of a new 4K television set to be available next month. The 84LM9600 is the company’s largest Ultra High Definition (UHD) television at 84.” It features a “4K” resolution of 3840x2160 pixels and displays eight million pixels each frame. The television also includes the company’s Smart TV and Cinema 3D technologies for both television apps and displaying 3D content. Further, it comes with an integrated 2.2 speaker system with two 10W speakers and two 15W sub-woofers.

Unfortunately, the press release is rather sparse with details beyond that. Namely, there is no mention of what underlying display technology they are using, what backlight, or what refresh rate it is using.

This television is nowhere near the 8K resolution of the 145" Panasonic UHDTV shown off earlier this year, but it’s cheaper and likely weights a lot less (heh, when you live three floors up that’s an important spec). Not to mention that 4K content is few and far between–much less 8K content. Still, even 4K televisions are very much in “early adopter” territory, and as such has the price to go along with it. Coming in September to worldwide markets (including Asia, Europe, Latin America, and North America), the 84-inch, 4K LG television has an MSRP of $22,105.

Speaking of high-end monitors, Ken recently reviewed the approximately $300 27" Achieva monitor with a resolution of 2560x1440. Now if only 4K monitors were that cheap!

Wow!

I am glad to see more 2K and 4K TV's and monitors entering the market, beacause the more there are the better competition, and hopefully we can see 2K and 4K monitors for computers and TV's coming sooner rather than later.

Either make the TV better or hire uglier chicks. Nobody's looking at your product.
