LG 4K Ultra HD TV Now Available - If You Have The Cash

By October 25, 2012

Follow me on:

Although Sony has been displaying its 84-inch 4K Ultra HD TV in its Sony Stores for about a month, it is still in the pre-order stage, and won't actually be available until later in November or December. However, if you have $20,000 and take the trip to Video and Audio Center's Lawndale, CA store, you can actually pick up LG's 84LM9600 84-inch Ultra HD TV starting Thursday, October 25, 2012. LG selected Video and Audio Center as the first dealer in the U.S. authorized to sell the cutting edge TV, which has already been available in Korea since late August and will also soon be available in India.

Coming it at $5,000 less than Sony's set, the LG set not only packs in 4K display resolution, but both 2D and 3D viewing options (passive system), 240Hz refresh rate, LED edge light with a local dimming feature, and, of course, it is also a Smart TV with access to an abundance of of internet and network based content.

If you live in the Los Angeles area, and you are curious about how this set actually looks, it may be worth your time to drive to Lawndale and check it out. On the other hand, those of you who live outside of Southern California, it looks like you will just have to wait a little bit longer, but Ultra HD is on the way - at least that is more than I can say about OLED right now.

For more details on this set, as well as purchasing info so far, check out Video and Audio Center's Official LG 84LM9600 Product Page. Photo provided by LG.

UPDATE 10/26/12: At least six LG 4K Ultra HD TVs were sold for a street price of $16,999 each on the first day of U.S. availability. For all the details, check out the onsite report from CE Pro.

UPDATE 5/25/13: The LG 84LM9600 is now available via additional dealers - Compare Prices

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a
blog post or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we
could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
