Maybe our math is off, but we're fairly certain 44.7-millimeters equates to around 1.76-inches. Strangely enough, LG is claiming that its Scarlet 42LG61 is actually the world's thinnest LCD HDTV, and we all know Hitachi's definitively thinner 1.5-inch family just started shipping to US consumers last week. Of course, maybe it just meant the slimmest it has ever produced, but we digress. The set is apparently loose in South Korea, featuring a 1080p panel, 120Hz technology, a 600,000:1 contrast ratio and four HDMI ports. Granted, the previously veiled set won't run you cheap, as you'll walk away ???2.5 million ($2,427) poorer should you choose to take one home.

Update: LG clarified the situation. It's the slimmest out there with a TV tuner built-in. Nice.
