LED TVs: 10 things you need to know

You be seeing lots of news and reviews of the LED TV’s, but a lot of people don’t really know very much about the technology and what makes it different than your standard LCD television sets. C|Net has a good bullet list of the major features that make it what it is.


I appreciate a good marketing ploy as much as the next guy, but an LED TV is just an LCD TV that’s backlit with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) instead of standard cold-cathode fluorescent lights (or CCFLs). And while they’ve become best-known this year with Samsung’s ultrathin models, LED-backlit LCDs have been on mainstream store shelves since 2007, when Samsung’s LN-T4681F debuted.
