L to R: World’s slimmest 42” LED LCD TV by LGD; Sharp’s I wall public information display;  71” 3-D LED TV by AUO I am reporting on the last day of the  FPD International/Green Devices 2010 show and several new trends in flat panel displays are repeated around the exhibit hall.Thin is in.  The LG Extreme slim LCD TV is an amazingly thin 1/8 inch and weighs under 9 lbs!  This is accomplished by edge lit LED with local dimming; full HD 1080p resolution and 120Hz refresh rate provide an amazingly sharp picture with high contrast ratio.  The 73 watt power consumption is up to a 40% power savings over CCFL backlighting.  The extreme slim design requires a separate box with the tuner and other TV electronics.
