LG LE9500 HDTV seriesAt CES 2010, Brian Tong takes a look at the LG LE 9500 Series televisions.
[ music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Brian Tong here at CES 2010. Here with LG's, LE 9500 series. And this really their flagship series for their LED back-lit displays. These displays range in size from 47 to 55 inches. And because it's their flagship, these are 3D ready television sets. Now they're also WIFI enabled, so you can have access to connect to the NetCast [phonetic] services. We're talking about video streaming, such as Vudu, you also have Netflix 2.0 in there. And then they've added additional ones, like Facebook, Twitter, Ebay, and a variety of other things. You also have the ability to actually use one of their streaming boxes, mount these displays wirelessly, and talk to this box that they have, and then you can stream your video wirelessly throughout your house, around 90 feet away. So that's another cool advantage of this display. Another unique feature is the remote with a PK950 and the LE 9500 series. I like to describe it as like a Wii-mote remote for your TV from LG. They call it the Magic UI. So it's like a wand. It has motion detection. All I have to do is press this enter button, and my pounds will show up. If I want to change my channels, I have a layout of all the channels, I just move the wand around, select the one that I want, and there you go. The thing that really stands out about these displays though is the bessel. [phonetic] If you look at this, this is the thinnest bessel out there, less than 8.5 millimeters thick all around, so it really doesn't intrude or take away from the picture. You're seeing a lot of picture. Now these displays will be available sometime in spring of 2010. There's no pricing yet. But there you have it, the LE 9500 series from LG at CES 2010. ^E00:01:33
