T3: Sony has proudly introduced us to the KDL-40ZX1, now officially the skinniest LCD in the world, ever.
At 9.9mm thick, it weighs in at a weedy 12.2kg. But just because it’s so thin doesn’t mean it hasn’t got the rest of the goods – this 40″ beauty still rocks 1080p resolutions and includes Sony’s Bravia Engine 2 and 120Hz MotionFlow tech.
Other specs include a 3000:1 contrast ratio, 178 degree viewing angle and a single, lonely HDMI port (there’s a good reason for this though).
But anorexic though it is, the ZX1 is still beaten by the Sony XEL-1 OLED screen, which boasts an incredible 3mm thickness and a far better contrast ratio. However, the XEL-1 is only 11″ wide and OLED still has a long way to go before it reaches the size of LCD, so in the meantime this seems like an excellent compromise.
