LG's Shows Off World's Thinnest OLED TV at CES

We first heard about LG’s 31-inch, super slim OLED TV back in August, when it was on show at IFA in Berlin. This morning we got a chance to meet the display face-to-face, though LG wasn’t willing to let us get our mucky fingerprints all over it and kept it in a plastic case the entire time. 

Measuring in at 31 inches and with a depth of 2.9mm, the panel supports both 2D and 3D imaging and, according to information from IFA in September, has a refresh rate of 600Hz. No word on price or release as there were no LG reps immediately available to answer questions. However, yesterday at its press conference, the company did say that it would be expanding on its OLED line this year, and promised a 31-inch OLED panel so hopefully we’ll see something similar to this available in the near future. Whether we’ll be able to afford it is a different kettle of fish altogether.

    Is "Infinite Contrast Ratio" even possible?

    That is thin enough. You can stop now.

    This might just be me but.. i prefer chunkier screens of say, 2-3CM in thinkness because it lets me know it's strong enough to take geek rage at LAN's (Sometimes people bang their tables when they get annoyed, shaking screens across the table).

    It's not thin enough - in about ten years I can see LED/OLED TVs being paper thin... literally, paper thin.

    Infinite contrast ratio is possible if you can turn a pixel completely off. Impossibly thin, but look at those bezels, they are completely average.

    Im assuming infinite contrast is their way of saying it can do perfect white and black at the same time. Since this is an OLED which will not require a back light since the light source is the screen then yeah I guess in a way it has infinite contrast or proably more acuratly near perfect contrast. A 600Mhz refresh rate is pretty damn impressive as well.
