I admit that I'm a sucker for a big screen. Do you know what I'm a bigger sucker for? 3D TVs with "ultra definition" resolutions that I'll never be able to afford. LG's delivering the big daddy of TVs at CES with an 84-inch 3D TV that'll make me wet my pants in a few weeks.
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is nearly upon us and every year we see the biggest and baddest TVs ever created that nobody but Dubai princes will ever be able to buy. CES 2012 will be no different.
LG's pulling no punches with its 3D UD TV. The 84-inch display will have 8 million pixels with a resolution of 3840x2160 (current consumer HD resolution maxes out at 1920x1080) or four times 1080p. LG's also boasting a "3D Depth Control," "3D Sound Zooming" along with a wealth of 1,200 Smart TV apps and 3D content.
And look at that bezel. It's almost like there is none.
Perhaps the most intriguing part is that LG's "Magic Remote" beats Apple's rumored Siri-powered iTV to the punch with voice recognition controls. How well it responds to voice has yet to be tested.
Pricing and availability have yet to be announced (if ever), but DVICE will be down on the floor at CES and you can bet your arse we'll be looking for this guy. I only wish it did glasses-free 3D like Toshiba's $11,000 Regza 55X3, but I suppose we can't have it all.
