Taking a break from the multitude of 3D-related announcements LG is drawing our attention towards another big selling point for today's HDTVs. The company has unveiled a 42-inch 1080p panel that's just 2.6mm (or 0.1 inch) thick, surpassing the world's thinnest record set by Samsung Electronics at 3.9 millimeters, and significantly improving upon their previous 5.9mm thick model.

Yeah, i think i would be afraid of it snapping in two as soon as it gets hit with a nerf ball.

That's crazy thin. I'll have to see it to believe it. And agree with compdata - first time something bumps into it, what's going to happen?

Talk about "Cutting edge technology". Are they making weapons? These things "God forbid" are killers in case a twister hits. Also... thieves beware!!!

What I don't get is what makes super flat screens so attractive - they sit on a wall or in a corner and it's not like anybody will take the effort to look around the side and say "ooh that's really thin". Because LED TVs have better picture quality than regular LCDs then yeah, maybe the thinness is a bonus, but it certainly wouldn't make a difference if it was 2.6mm or 5.9mm or whatever.

Stealing a 42 inch 9 pound tv? That sounds easy. I'll just stack them up and take like 3-4 and I can still run for it loL!

This is what I've been looking for! An HD TV that I can shave with!

What does the shipping carton look like? Pizza box?

Now, if they could only price these sets per inch I might be able to really afford one. I hope they're still working on making them affordable and not just thin.

Price will be sky rocking high when they hit the market, and still not too many people will buy it even you have tons of $$$ to spend!
