Rope said:Marketing people would like you to believe there's such a thing as LED TV, which is just not the case. All so called LED TV are LCD TV with LED's used as a back light. In some cases the LED lights are local dimming, which provides a much better picture because the light source can be conrolled without filters, making the greys black and increasing contrast.
This. When I bought my TV over a year ago it came down to an LG and a Toshiba (?), each $100 from each other, and the knowledgable salesman told me the screen was actually the same in each, manufactured by Toshiba (?). Both were LED/local dimming. The only difference was the Toshiba was glossy, the LG had a matte screen. The salesman pointed out the lack of glare on the LG, and that's what I ended up getting.Rope said:LED is merely the back light source of LCD TV. Most LCD TV's use cold cathode tube with filters to supply light to the liquid crystal to create an image. The deciding factor with glare will be the screen finish, and the majority of LCD panels have anti glare screens, unlike some laptop's which come with the shiney screen where you can see yourself, they suck.
