At the past few CES's, manufacturers were all striving to produce the "World's LARGEST" TVs. We seemed to have gotten bored with that category, and really, who needs a 106-inch TV? This year, the trend is to see who can produce the thinnest. Admit it - you can never, ever be too thin.
JVC is announcing that their latest prototype LCD will be the lightest 32-inch TV out there, and almost the thinnest. Samsung just announced a 6.5mm, and this one measures a waif-like 7mm.
It weighs in at . . .
a mere 5kg. No beefy stands necessary - in fact, you could easily hang this from the ceiling. It weighs less than many lighting fixtures.
The specs aren't shabby - it has 1080p resolution and LED backlighting. It uses less mercury than existing designs, making it much safer for the environment.
This is a lean, green, TV-viewing machine. --Leslie Shapiro
