The LG 55LE8500 is a full high definition 55 inch LED LCD television set for release sometime in 2010. LED technology allows for much higher dynamic contrast ratios which results in deeper, truer blacks than standard LCD televisions and what is widely regarded as a richer, higher quality picture. This television introduces LG's Full LED Slim technology that allows for the increased picture quality as well as a very slim, borderless design. Full LED Slim additionally improves picture quality by utilizes over 200 addressable segments on the screen, adjusting each for optimal performance as displays change. Internet connectivity is also a focus of the system, with DLNA capability for interaction with other DLNA certified devices, and a Ethernet jack for wired or wireless options.

Once connected, users have a variety of options to choose from, further expanded by NetCast, a service that opens up usage of programs such as Skype, Youtube, and Netflix directly on the television. The wireless connection can also be used in conjunction with Blu-Ray players, cable or satellite receivers, or video game systems to provide a connection without the mess of multiple input wires attached to the television. Energy saving options are also included with a sensor that automatically detects its environment and adjusts brightness, contrast, and color levels accordingly to lower power consumption maintain consistent picture quality.
