JVC has unveiled a super thin LCD TV that has about the same profile as a much more expensive OLED TV. The set is only 6.4mm thick at the thinnest point. The catch is that the sides of the set are really thin, but all the actual hardware to make the set work is in a much thicker section of the TV on the lower half.

That sort of makes the thin profile at points moot. Still, if you want that sexy OLED look but don’t want to spend that much the JVC set might be a good alternative. The set has two HDMI ports, RGB, component, composite and other connectivity options. Two HDMI ports is woefully lacking for today's standards.

The lower half of the screen is a much fatter 22.5 mm. The sets also sport a low contrast ratio of 4000:1 and it has 400 nits of brightness. These sets don’t sound that appealing after you get past the 6.4 mm thick claim.
