LG Electronics (LGE) is introducing a 60″ plasma display panel (PDP) TV with a wood bezel or frame. LGE is releasing only 1000 such units in the South Korean domestic market in March.
Continued research to improve flat panel display (FPD) TV into its surroundings is the likely reason why LGE is releasing such a unique product. Concerns regarding the use of wood would include: expansion and contraction due to moisture or lack thereof, changes in color, lower resistance to sharp objects relative to aluminum or plastic, etc. I am assuming LGE did its best to ensure long-term quality of the wood on the 60PT1.
