At 0.7-inches, the bezel on NEC's MultiSync LCD5220 TV is thinner than Toshiba's

Home cinema, TVs

For those who judge the quality of their consumer electronics by how expensive they are, this NEC MultiSync LCD5220 TV costs a cool $8,150. UK pricing hasn’t been mentioned as yet, but you can bet your bottom dollar (and you’ll have to, if you want one) the exchange rate will make it even pricier for us.

It’s a 52-incher, and is supposedly the market’s first professional-grade panel display. It’d have to be, at that price. Thankfully it supports 1080i, 1080p, 720p, 480i and 480p resolutions, with a contrast ratio of 2000:1, and a brightness of 700 cd/m2.

Thin bezels must be the bezel du jour this season, with NEC putting a tiny 0.7″ frame on their panel, eclipsing Toshiba’s recently-announced 0.9″ bezel.

Look out for it come April, for the aforementioned US price.
