Sharp's Super-Slim 52" LCD
- Product Name: Super-Slim 52" LCD
- Manufacturer: Sharp

- First Impression: Pretty Cool
Sharp was showing off its version of the super-slim display in its 52" LCD panel. At 2cm (main display section; 2.9 cm at the thickest part), it sure is thin. But what's also as impressive is its specs. Try 100,000:1 contrast ratio, 150% of the NTSC color gamut, 25 kg weight and only 140 kWh/year power consumption! Thin, light, and bright? Sounds like everything we're looking for in a woman... er... display. Sharp had one of these displays on a motorized mount that hid the display in a cabinet the size of a thick bed headboard. Talk about the ultimate geek bed! With LCDs like this and some of the huge LCD panels we saw (including the 108" offering from Sharp) on the horizon, plasmas should be afraid... very afraid.

Do you get the feeling these guys are just showing off for it's own sake?
Sony just released their first 11" OLED at $1800
Toshiba isn't going to release any at all based on manufacturing costs

Samsung didn't talk price (heck, they didn't have a price tag on a single item in their booth) but many times these tech showcases are just stuff they are exploring.
So what kind of price differential are we talking about here? Did Samsung actually have an MSRP for the 31" model? If mass production were to indeed start in 2010 of mid to large sized models, what price point is Samsung shooting for and what was the maximum size they were touting?
