CES Sexy: LG gives LCD panels racing stripes

Well, I guess LCD technology has pretty much peaked, if this new LG set is any evidence. Sure it's got all the hot specs of today — 1080p resolution, a 120 Hz refresh rate, and a 20,000:1 contrast ratio (right) — but the company rep just couldn't stop talking about that red stripe on the rim. Uh, nice I guess, though I thought it was pretty sexy already. The "accent" is vaguely reminiscent of the company's phones, just in case you ever worried whether your cellphone matched your TV set. This one's a 42-incher, but the design will be available in other sizes, too. No prices yet.

What do you guys think? Is this totally silly or actually kind of cool? Comment away.
