The full HD TV measures just 6.4mm at its thinnest point, and with a weight of just 5.7kg, JVC also gets the bragging rights for the planet's lightest LCD screen. It features 400cd/m2 brightness and a contrast ratio of 4,000:1.
I don’t get the “thinnest” claim when they’re quoting just the thinnest portion of something that has thicker portions. It seems like they should be obliged to quote it based on the thickest part of the device.
That and obsessing over shaving millimeters off of a device that’s 32″ diagonally seems absurd.
Who cares how thin a tv is as long as all the other equipment that goes with it is still 15+ inches deep, as soon as everything is streamlined that will be cool, but for now I still need a entertainment center to hold video game systems and audio and satellite receivers.
Oh good, all those extra millimeters will really help me out with… um. Oh right, nothing. Make better TVs with cooler features, we got the thin thing taken care of years ago.
A contrast ratio of 4,000:1 would be awful these days. (The new Samsung TVs have over 3,000,000:1.) However, the original site, in Japanese, seems to use the same number — anyone know what’s going on?
Contrast ratios aren’t “all that”. As soon as you turn on a light, any light, inside of the viewing room the real world contrast ratio plunges dramatically. The contrast ratio of a CRT is 100/7.5 or 13.1:1 and nobody complains nor brags about it. That high brightness is a more important factor in the real world.
