    Nothing much mentioned about the LP1-series in this formum (~2 threads)
    and I can't let this go... :rolleyes:

    Information achieved from various sources....

    "Using some new technique, LCD-hybrid, a combination of LCD crystals and LED backlight.
    Using 1 LED on 8 pixels, this will give noticeable better black, contrast and brightnessrender."



    Some details:

    Contrast ratio: 1200:1
    Refresh rate: 8 ms
    EEFL instead of traditional CCFL
    - Better whitebalance and blacklevel
    - Less powerconsumption
    - Longer lifespan (~70K h)
    Composite, S-Video, RGB scart, Component, DVI-I (HDCP), HDMI
    2 tuners with PiP
    Detachable speakers (2x15W)

    EEFL (External Electrode Fluorescent Lamp) http://www.j-right.com/html/eefl_lamp.htm
    CCFL (Cold-Cathode Fluorescent Lamps) http://www.j-right.com/html/ccfl_lamp.htm

    I don't generally rate LG stuff, but this looks REALLY good. It seems to be available in September for around £2499. I'd be really interested if anyone else knows much more about it?

    Found a few pictures on a forum of a Swedish pricematchsite.

    Scroll down to the middle of the page and you will see some pictures.
    -With flash and without in the room with and without lights.
    -Backlight compared with a Sharp 32-GA5 (LG on the top).
    -Read and side displaying in/outputs.

    Don't get too excited, it's a good telly if you feed it good (HD/PC) sources, otherwise its not that hot. The scaler is not that great apparently. Viewing angles are good. (not my opinions - I took them from the french article linked below)


    read this review - it's in french - http://www.tomshardware.fr/articlemoniteur.php?IdArticle=916&NumPage=1

    Their conclusion (and my poor translation):

    "We're quite happy with the 37LP1. The poor scaling capabilities relegate it to the world of HD, where it excels. When coupled to an HTPC, it is stunning, with deep black levels and limited video noise.... You will rediscover your DVD library thanks to this TV. We're dissapointed with the 'poor' resolution of this TV for its size, we would have preferred 1920x1080, for it to be compatible with 1080i natively."

    These LP1 sets have been available here in Finland for a few weeks now and on a local discussion forum reported to be pretty good. Sound quality has been reported to be good for a TV and people seem to feel pretty satisfied with their purchases. Someone reported that the black level is still a bit greyish but darker than in most LCDs..

    Prices are around 1750 € for the 32" and 2800 € for the 37"... Quite a price for the extra 5" IMO.
