Update February 26, 2013: For a limited comparison of this TV and its direct competitor, check out our hands-on impressions of the Sony XBR-84X900. We have not yet performed a similar evaluation of this LG, but contributor Geoff Morrison got an even more limited hands-on in October 2012.

One of the biggest buzzwords to emerge from CES 2012 was 4K, which is pinned as the next consumer resolution after 1080p. LG's 84-inch LM9600 ($19,999 list) is one of two 4K TVs on track for release this year. In fact it should be available in October, which makes it the first 4K TV available for sale in the U.S--beating the Sony XBR-84X900 by a month. The LG also costs $5000 less than the Sony.

The LG 84LM9600 has a resolution of 3,840x2,160 pixels, aka the consumer version of 4K, since it's four times the number of pixels employed by garden-variety 1080p TVs (1,920x1,080). For its part, LG calls the resolution "UD" for "ultra-definition," making this a (wait for it) "UDTV."
