Re: What is an "LED TV"?

said by floydb1982:

There are two different backlighting technology's for an LCD. there are both CFL and LED lighting's. So what you have is an LCD TV without the standard CFL backlight but with LED backlighting. They should not market LCD only as an LED TV when it is not really an LED TV but as an LED LCD or CFL LCD based on witch backlighting is has in it.

But there are four (4) types of LED backlighting. See - »reviews.cnet.com/2795-6482_7-399.html
Mine is edge-lit without local dimming, but the backlighting will globally dim on dark scenes to improve the black level. Mine also has backlight scanning, which I have disabled.

I agree that they should be marketed as "LED illuminated LCD TVs".
