LG Display will showcase 17″, 20″, 22″ and 26″ LCD TV panels at the Flat Panel Display China 2009 show. That’s nothing new but these will be IPS (In-Plane Switching) LCD panels. LG Display also claims that these IPS panels will be “… boasting competitive price and superior picture quality compared to TN panels.” I’ve always been a fan of IPS technology and it seems LG Display has seen the light: make IPS panels for everything! Well, at least when it comes to smaller LCD TV panels. And the timing is great.
Customers still need to replace their TVs. But in this time of economic climate where a lot of us have much less in terms of a budget for TV, I think LG Display coming out with a knockout punch with IPS that is cost competitive as TN.
