Big TV Watch: LG Caught Faking Its 100-inch Giganticism

Poor LG. Not only did Sharp beat them on the title of largest TV, but it turns out their "mere" 100-inch screen isn't even that. It's two LCD panels stuck together. That became apparent to viewers from a few feet away, as the two halves show color and brightness slightly differently. On some screens, the seam shows up as a big line down the entire middle of the screen. (And on cross-examination, LG flaks confirmed to us that it definitely is two panels.)

So sorry LG, we caught you stuffing your screen dimensions. Not that we're totally obsessed with size, but if you're going to brag about bigness, you'd better have the goods you're promising.
