9.9 millimetres!

9.9 millimetres!

According to Engadget, Sony have just released an LCD TV that’s 9.9 millimetres thick. Yes, that’s less than one centimetre.

The guys at Engadget reckon that the unit will cost $4,400US (£2,395) and is available in Japan from November.

Now, that’s all well and good and you’ve got to admire the Japanese for their innovation. However, it would be really nice if the Big boys (Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba etc), rather than making the TVs one centimetre thick or 103 inches along the diagonal, make them cheaper.

Yes, I realise that with innovation the cheaper end of the market gets better too but I don’t want a QangbigDong 37″ Plasma with pretend HD upscaling for £300 from Asda. I want a reasonably priced Tosh, Pan or Sony unit that’s got true abilities, looks good and performs well.

Is that really too much to ask?
