Sony unleashes "world's thinnest" LCD TV. Sony has announced the release of the KDL-40ZX1, they world's thinnest LCD TV ever made at a tiny 9.9mm thick.
The LCD is full HD 1080p capable and includes 120Hz MotionFlow for improved image quality during fast action scenes.

Sony says the TV has a 3000:1 contrast ratio and a very decent 178 degree viewing angle. The TV also includes a wireless HD base station that should, unconfirmed however, have a range of 20 meters.

Included in the base station is 3 HDMI ports, 2 component, a S-Video, VGA input, USB 2.0, LAN and a phone jack. The screen itself only has 1 HDMI and 1 USB port making the TV even tinier.

You can view pictures of the base station and the TV here: Sony KDL-40ZX1

Is this likely to be more fragile than normal tv's as it is so thin?

Thinner is not better, nether is smaller, i swear TV makers thinks every body lives in a 4x4 room.

and the way i load and unload stuff from my house, id probably break it into 2 pieces or more. i man handle everything, if it don't open i'll rip it open.
