If the acronym bingo in the subject line hasn’t made you flee in terror, keep reading, because this is an interesting piece of tech from LG. Aside from being LED-backlit like a few other high-end LCD TVs these days, the LHX is also just under an inch thin, thanks to LG removing the tuner components, which have been sent off to live in a “media box” that sends the signal to the LHX wirelessly. Personally, I’m not so crazy about the idea of yet another streaming signal doohicky, but the thinness of the LHX is definitely high up on the cool factor list. No word on pricing yet, but expect it to be somewhere around a kajillion dollars. Official specs after the clicky thingie…
