Best buy in Lewisville has an LED on display...Samsung 42" or 46". Looked pretty sweet and I think the price was around 2500. That damn thing was thin too, probably as thin or thinner than most cell phones.

We got that same TV a few weeks before the Super Bowl, it's sweet.

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

I've got the HL61A750 and its great... The new LED LCDs look nice with good black levels, but I'll stick with the DLP, more screen for less $$ and a great picture.

A coworker just bought the 55" samsung LED LCD and it is nice, but $3600

The mounts we have for the new Samsung LED's look exactly like a picture frame string mount just bigger obviously. But you literally hang your tv like a picture and if you get the wires concealed in the wall...looks damn nice with how thin they are.

LED LCD? ROFL. do you realize what you're saying?

so there's such thing as a light emitting diode(LED) liquid crystal display(LCD)?
Don't think so. the things are two different types of tvs.

Unless it's an OLED TV, it's a regular LCD that uses LEDs for backlighting instead of incandescent bulbs.

They make an "led lcd"... Its a standard LCD panel that uses LED's to provide the backlight instead of the traditional CCFL light sources. The LED light can be adjusted much more quickly, and even shut off on certain parts of the screen to help increase black levels and contrast ratios. They have other advantages over CCFL's with power, heat and size... There aren't any direct view LED displays made for the consumer at this point.

OLED is another technology that may replace all of this at some point when it becomes cost effective... Samsung just showed a 40" or 42" OLED display which is the largest yet, considering the 11" sony OLED is like $2k I would hate to know how much a production 42" would be right now.

also, if it's a regular 46" LCD tv, how would it only be 1" thick? my bad ass brand new samsung lcd is still about 2.5-3" thick. the new samsung led 46 is thin, and light as hell. was easy as hell to mount.

The new samsung models that are this are edge lite (to be thin) and can't use the dimming and lighting control, but the previous samsung led lcds did use lighting control to increase contrast... The new models look great, still amazing how thin they were able to make it

Quote:
The panels are using a new LED technology described as local dimming: “Hundreds of wafer-thin diodes about the width of the eye’s pupil are electronically turned off and on in exacting sequences that respond to movement on the screen, areas only a fraction of what was previously possible with the most prevalent form of TV backlighting - long, thin fluorescent lamps. In black areas of the picture, the diodes can be completely shut off in order to generate total blackness,” Samsung explained.

The new samsung led's are nice and they even have an 8000 that has 240hz. Look clear as crystal, but I couldn't stand the artifacting around the edges with any of the auto motion settings on anything other than off.
