Monster TVs slug it out for CeBIT crown

And the winner is...

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

CeBIT Sony did it at CES in Las Vegas, and now it's Samsung's turn at CeBIT in Hannover. Yes, we're talking monster 82in LCD TVs. Alas, it was outscaled by LG, which is touting a 100in LCD, but don't forget that Panasonic's 103in plasma screen beats them all.

Samsung can at least claim its 82in whopper has a novel LED backlight that, it claims, improves the screen's colour and helps deliver the display's 7000:1 contrast ratio. LG's 100-incher, by contrast, uses regular backlight technology. It measure 2.2 x 1.2m, sports a 5ms response time and a 3000:1 contrast ratio - so you can see why Samsung's keen on its LED backlight.

Both companies touted their displays' wide viewing angles, with LG going as far as to put a number on it: 180°

LG also had a 102in plasma screen on show, beaten by a single inch by Panasonic's 103in model. Panasonic's plasma measures 2.28 x 1.27m - almost the same size as a Toyota Aygo, the company was keen to point out. It runs to a full 1080p HD resolution, Panasonic said, as does the LG screen. ®
