Hmm, Amazon actually state that the display is LED. (3rd line down in technical details in my description)

yes:

LED
LG LED TVs produce a sharper, more detailed picture with a superior contrast as well as an ultra slim design compared to LCD TVs. LED TVs have tiny lights either around the edge of the TV (known as Edge LED) or directly behind the TV (known as Full LED). This model has LED lights around the edge of the TV frame giving you an ultra slim TV that is perfect for wall mounting. LG LED TVs are also more energy efficient so you will save 40% of power consumption compared to LCD TVs saving you up to £100 per year.

so this is Edge LED not full LED

but still it is sexyy

its edge lit - check the LG features page... right hand side...

edge yes - but after reading this:

http://hometheater.about.com/od/televisions/qt/ledlcdtvfacts.htm

One type of LED backlighting is referred to as Edge Lighting. In this method, a series LED backlights are placed along the outside edges of the screen. The light is then dispersed across the screen. The advantage of this method is that the LED/LCD TV can be made very thin. On the other hand, the disadvantage of Edge lighting is that black levels are not as deep and the edge area of the screen has a tendency to be brighter than the center area of the screen.

The other type of LED backlighting is referred to as Full-Array. In this method, several rows of LEDs are placed behind the entire surface of the screen. The advantage is that these sets can employ "local dimming". Local dimming means that each LED or a specific group of LEDs can be turned on and off independently within certain areas of the screen, thus providing more control of the brightness and darkness for each those areas, depending on the source material being displayed. On the other hand, LCD TVs that employ full array backlighting are thicker than LCD TVs that employ an Edge-lit LED light source.

I'm not left convinced - the only thing I like here is that edge LED tvs are much thinner
better to wall mount then

a pet hate of mine is tv makers trying to pass off these lcd sets as LED sets - i don't recall them calling the others flourescent screens due to their flourescent tubes.

I think you will find that it is LED Display... Maybe a little research :)About.com Explains all

I really struggling with this one - its cheap in the grand scheme of things - £549 at richer with a 5 year guarantee - can't quite make my little pesky mind up, I want another TV and can move the existing one elsewhere, but not in a rush rush hmmm
#14
nope, it's definitely an LCD set with an LED backlight.
#15
lol Gareth

All "LED TVs" are LCD TVs with LED backlighting. The only difference is some "LED TVs" are LCD screens that are LED backlit just around the edge of the screen - and other "LED TVs" are LCD screens that have a full array of LEDs backlighting behind the full screen.

I repeat - ALL "LED TVs" ARE LCD SCREENS WITH LED BACKLIGHTING!!! There is no such thing as a TV display made entirely of LEDs.

This is a real LED TV - defined as an LCD screen with LED backlighting. It's an edge lit set however, meaning its cheaper than an LED TV that has a full array of LEDs behind the panel and the picture colour is probably lower quality. That said - the set will also typically be thinner than a full array LED set.

tell sony their stupidly expensive 10 inch OLED set wasn't a tv made entirely of leds then...
the advertising standards folk agree too - they rule against any manufacturer that tries the trick of calling them LED sets.
#17
OK - my statement "there is no such thing as as TV display made entirely of LEDs" is completely incorrect, lol.

And I agree with you - its not an "LED TV". What I think we were trying to explain to you is the current use of the description "LED TV" and what that means according to the manufacturers of these TVs.

But its become clear that you are not confused about it . You're just making a personal statement about your disagreement that manufacturers are using the term LED TV.

Which is fair - the ASA recently told Samsung sthey couldn't call them LED TVs in their TV ads.

LED, LCD, OLED, Backlit this and Back lit that...... fact is my mates SKY SD image isnt that great, shops have all their super TVs showing Blue Rays and not TV images, because a lot of people wouldn't buy them if they saw a true everyday picture.

Hmmmmph (Severe toothache)

belter of a deal, i must resist and i would buy if i got £300 for my regza tee hee
#22
The only true all LED tv's are OLED tv's, and they are extremely expensive because it is not a mass produced technology. The picture quality on OLED tv's are amazing though and I can wait for them to start getting mass produced.

£2000 for an 11"! No Tv can possibly be worth that much, in a million years! its crazy! http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/sony-xel-1-ultra-slim-11-oled-tv-03895997-pdt.html?srcid=867&xtor=AL-50&istCompanyId=9a35962d-802d-4e67-9721-0a3328ca1f02&istItemId=mrppxwp&istBid=t

I agree - it's not what you've got, it's what you can do with it (_;)

I have an LG plasma because it was more forgiving of the lousy analogue signal I get than any LCD sets. Must say I'm impressed with LG though.

In this part of the country I get a lousy Freeview signal which will only improve when they switch off the lousy analogue signal - they say. Since I can't get ITV or C4 on Freeview - or C5 since they "improved" reception, and only aboout 10 usable channels on a good day, this is rather a gamble for me - and not one I have any choice about!! (Can't have a dish due to planning constraints/aesthetics). Still, on the bright side at least my BB has increased to 3mb from the 1.2mb a year ago!!
suspended#26
I got a headache after reading how an OLED works, and I understood none of it. Can someone see if they can do any better? lol
#27
A question. Which is better for someone that has all the various consoles, has sky hd but dosen't watch everything in hd.. Would it be a lcd, led or plasma??
Appologies for the slight ot, asked instore, but the salesman was only interested in trying to get me to part with my cash lol.
#28
the best plasma will look better than a good lcd / led backlit but they can suffer burn in if you were to forget your paused console on one.

After doing loads of research I've just had this delivered from John Lewis - it was £564 last week with a 5 year guarantee....the price keeps going up and down.

Keep an eye on prices - they are swinging around daily :)
#31
It's a bargain for 42"! my friend got an LED screen TV. picture is much more sharper than LCD.
#32
So tempted, although i think my gf will have a fit if i buy it. Shall i say i won it instead? lol
#33
always take views on TV's with a pinch of salt, a TV is only as good as the source feeding it - NEVER forget that...

I would also look to +50Hz screen refresh - 100-200hz is the ideal.
#34
Hi cracking deal but personally looking for a 47" Led tv any links anyone
Thanx

ripped from website :) ;-
A Layer of organic material is sandwiched between two conductors (an anode and a cathode), which in turn are sandwiched between a glass top plate (seal) and a glass bottom plate (substrate). When electric Current is applied to the two conductors, a bright, electro-luminescent light is produced directly from the organic material.

anyway.... when a current is passed through the oled it changes colour and brightness, effectivley it means that every pixel is its own light, unlike LED/LCD/Plasma where they are edge-lit or backlit.

This makes them very thin as no other light source is needed and they can be fully turned on or off giving almost an infiniate contrast ratio.

AMOLED is the same but with an Active Matrix, this is foudn on most Samsung smartphones and if you have a friend with one have a look at the colours on screen, they are brilliant!
Also you can bend OLED as they are so thin and don't need a circuit board inside.

Only thing is when we get 'roll up tv's' and super flat OLED screens we will still need an imput source which will be an external box sat on our tv cabinet :)

Shame it's not a Freeview HD tuner inside it.

Picture quality is exceptional LED backlit or LED for this price I would get it! Shame I paid £440 for the 32" earlier in the year
