LG shows 'UK's largest' OLED TV15-inch LG 15EL9500 at Gadget Show Live
08 April 2010
LG is showing what it claims is the largest OLED TV available to UK consumers at the Gadget Show Live event this week.
The 15-inch LG 15EL9500, which will launch later in April, is just 3mm thick according to LG, and features LG’s 100Hz Trumotion technology with a response time of 0.1msec.
LG claims that the 15EL9500, like other OLED screens, will ‘boast a spectacular, brighter picture from any angle, with superior contrast ratio (10,000,000: 1) whilst also being more energy efficient’.
The company also says that the absence of a backlight, which makes the super-slim 3mm casing possible, will result in deeper blacks against stronger, more vibrant colours.

Freeview HD Ready OLED TV
The LG 15EL9500 is water-resistant, making it suitable for installation in kitchens and bathrooms.
The 15-inch OLED panel has HD Ready 720p resolution and a built-in Freeview tuner. There’s also a USB 2.0 socket allowing for playback of HD video content from compatible USB storage devices.
The first OLED TV available to UK consumers was the 11-inch Sony Bravia XEL-1, which went on sale in early 2009. LG unveiled the 15EL9500 back in 2009 at the IFA show and also displayed it at CES 2010 in Las Vegas, before finally announcing that it will go on sale later this month for a reported price of £1,900.
