LG’s New LCD Has Its Own Hard Drive

The problem with hanging your flat panel TV on the living room wall is that you still have to set up some sort of shelf for all your set-top boxes. Now LG looks to be eliminating one more external box from the equation. The new LG 42LP1DR is a 42-inch LCD TV with a built-in 160GB hard drive. The system has its own DVR software, so it can record your favorite shows without being connected to a separate TiVo unit. Provided it has a CableCARD slot (which we assume it would), it’s just about totally self-contained. However, to be truly stand-alone, it would need a DVD player and a couple of game consoles tucked into its chassis.
