The Loewe Individual Slim, the German gogglebox guru’s skinny HDTV, has been given an update, downsizing its profile, and adding LED backlighting, Freeview HD support and more. We got a good look at the new model up close, so read on for the photos.
The new Loewe Individual Slim may not be the skinniest flatscreen ever, but it’s still a whole lot less chunky than the previous model. This time around, the 1080p LCD TV uses LED backlighting for better contrast, and packs a 250GB hard drive and DLNA support for media streaming over your network. The new Loewe Individual Slim will be sold in four sizes: 32, 42, 46 and 55 inches, with the smallest offering a 100Hz refresh rate, while those above it will have 200 or 400Hz panel options.
A Loewe representative told us that while the Loewe Individual Slim ships with a Freesat and Freeview tuner built in, it’s planning to ship a Freeview HD module later in the year for the line, which can be retro-fitted, and will also work for any future Loewe TVs.
While there’s no denying that The Dark Knight on Blu-ray looked impressively smooth and deep on the Loewe Individual Slim, it’s time to brace yourself. The new Loewe Individual Slim will set you back at least a whopping £3,995. That’s the price we pay for the luxury of an HDTV that’s more attractive than anything you’re watching, we guess: have a look at the new Loewe Individual Slim in our gallery to see if you agree, and look for it to ship in mid-May.
