NuVision U.S. Inc. recently announced the introduction of three new super slim LED edge-lit LCD TV models for the consumer market, namely the Lucidium NVU40FX5LS (40-inch), the NVU46FX5LS (46-inch) and the NVU55FX5LS (55-inch). All three models come in a standard brushed aluminum black enclosure that has an almost industrial look to it. The 55-inch model is also available in a limited edition featuring a silver frame (NVU55FX5LSX). NuVision is not attempting to make a budget product, so don't expect to see a high value rating on this set. In addition, the company's focus is on providing a good quality product to its dealers and supporting that product with a warranty that means something.

I wish there was an endless thread about people who believe these make a difference. I would never leave this website.

You could probably say the same thing about plenty of speakers, Shock

Oh I do

And 7500 dollar preamps……

It is a nice looking display, and I do like how the inputs on the back panel are sideways, instead of straight out…but I do agree with Shock. Too much money for whatever few gains.
