Coming to a store near you soon is the fantastic looking Sony ZX5 LED TV. The ZX5 is a Full HD 1080p panel that will be available in 46 and 52 inch sizes. It sports 240 Hz Flow Motion and integrated wireless transmission connectivity that will deliver high definition broadcasts and video on demand without the need for wires. This will be great for people wanting to hang this set on a wall without the hassle of burying cables into walls.

The ZX5 has a slimline frame that is only 16.6mm thick and the LED backlighting is edgelit.
Release date for Japan is November 2009. No news yet on the UK or US date but expect to see these beauties soon. Ill have further updates as they come along on the main LED Tele site as well as on the official blog.

LG Borderless LED TV

Another star from LG’s ‘Borderless Design TV’ range is the 42SL9000. Shown is an LED TV with LG’s unique ‘Borderless’ design that renders the TV so magically thin. The LG 42SL9000 LED TV also has a full HD resolution, quoted contrast ratio of 3,000,000:1 and 100Hz TruMotion backing it up in the video front. The presence of a SRS Trusurround system and a decent speaker system with 20Watts of output power gives it a good face when it comes to audio as well.

Being a HD Ready LED TV, Blu-ray movies are bound to be a pleasure to watch; high definition gaming could also be that slap-up experience to narrate to your mates over a beer. The 42SL9000 has 24p Real Cinema, a feature that us supposed to give you that ultimate movie-watching experience. The support to Bluetooth could well be the favourite of many, for it gives you that solitary TV viewing experience with your bluetooth wireless headset apart from letting you enjoy content from your mobile phone in the 42” screen.

Well, it looks like this borderless design TV is borderless when it comes to features too. For there are a good lot of them that grab your attention. The XD Engine, for instance. I’m a bit curious about the black levels, though. Being the key problem that many manufactures are trying to counter, Sharp has even announced a new technology that will provide that ultimate deep black. But LED backlights have given us that almost perfect black that we desire.
