I watched a couple of sci fi flicks on bluray using this exact set last month (Moon and Sunshine) and they looked gorgeous. The set is stylish and emitted a really low level of heat.

Looks like the best you'll get for 400 pounds.

Hmmmm, this one or the 40 inch Toshiba 738 thats posted today s well? Roughly similar price drop so which one is the better set?

Rather troll-ish comment from someone who appears to be a regular on HUKD. Hmmmmmm. Anyway, I've had HD for just a couple of months now and I LOVE it on a daily basis - so much so that I tend to avoid SD if at all possible because it looks so muddy and sad in comparison.

I agree, don't see what is wrong with my old 14" black and white portable, indoor aeriel as well, cheap as chips! A rubbish program will still be rubbish, but HD really improves the quality.

Let me guess, you own a Technica HD TV.

Buy a proper 1080p TV, use a good blu ray player to watch your next movie - come back and repost your new found love for HD

Got the 32" of this in the bedroom, and it's one of the best pictures I have seen.

nice low power consumption but worth upgrading (from another large flat tv) if only it had freeview HD imho...

heat anyway

This is essentially an LG 42LD450 LCD TV with edge lit backlighting.

If by 'best' you mean picture quality, you can do better for less cash, e.g. the Toshiba 40RV753. Full HD. Includes HD Freeview. £379 delivered from Amazon.

I got excited about "LED backlighting", and marvelled at how quickly the cost of these had come down... but looking at the link, it is LED edge-lit, isn't it? Which is not the same as proper back-lit LED?

That's not me knocking the deal, which I am sure is hot. Just seeking a clarification on whether this is a worthwhile upgrade for me personally. I'm sure the manufacturers like and indeed propagate a bit of confusion about what LED means in this context.

has usb for pics and audio, but dont think it can be hacked to play video like the LH series

LED backlighting it the same as LED edge lit. The real difference with LED is when the screen itself is LED instead of LCD (still quite expensive), LED do not required any form of back/edge lighting as the are Light Emitting Diodes.

user feedback on avforums leads to think this isnt a very good TV: poor PQ and USB playback.

I think the whole LED backlight marketing issue has been blown completely out of proportion. Its about as clear as most other features and what you take from the term LED TV will be dictated by your own knowledge. Clearly if you know about OLED TV's, Full Array LED, Edge LED you are not going to then confuse one for the other. And if you don't know about any of them, what will you be confusing the term LED TV to mean.

IMO certain people on forums have just grabbed this as an opportunity to trumpet their own importance and show how clever they are (wanna be Ann Robinsons, ironically watchdog has really gone downhill itself in recent years).

Anyway, rant over, so I'll answer your question now:

Positives:

- Significantly Thinner - IMO a definite advantage aesthetically. Can mean you can go for a bigger TV in certain circumstances. I.E. If your wall is large enough to accommodate a large panel, but the room is narrow. In this case the reduced volume of a slim panel can allow you to go a few inches larger.
- Lower Power consumption - But the difference is only usually equivalent to leaving a couple of light bulbs on. Moreover, my science teacher always used to say TV is a complete waste of energy in any case, so the best way to save energy would be to not have one :D
- More consistant backlight over lifetime: A CCFL backlight will shift in its colour spectrum over its a lifetime. An LED backlight should not.
- Lighter - Making it easier to mount on walls where you can't get many solid anchors (stud walls for example)

Potential advantages (depends on implementation):

Longer backlight life
Larger colour Gamut
More Granular control of backlight
Better Contrast levels and black levels
More reliable as it runs cooler

Disadvantages:
More expensive/same price but compromise on other components in the panel
First Gen of LED panels potentially have some bugs to iron out and could be less reliable
You have to listen to the "I know whats best" brigade tell you, "you picked style over substance". :D

IMO its not worth upgrading from a CCFL panel purely for LED backlighting tech. But if your in the market for an LCD panel, it may be worth paying extra for an LED backlit display. With even plasmas getting slimmer, the chubbier CCFL displays will start to look dated in the coming years (IMO).

Correct, this is an edge lit LED, not full array. Superb value for money for an LED, however as with most LED's it is form over function.
#26
for anyone that needs it, this TV does not support DLNA or does it have iPlayer etc.. (though it's widely advertised as saying it does)

LED backlighting it the same as LED edge lit. The real difference with LED is when the screen itself is LED instead of LCD (still quite expensive), LED do not required any form of back/edge lighting as the are Light Emitting Diodes.


There are 2 main types of LED backlight, edge-lit and wbl white back light:

The main differences being, with edge lit as it describes there is lighting around the edge.

wbl there is a large array of white LEDs behind the screen, the benefit is a more even lighting across the screen.

The benefit of edge lit LED over say CCFL is the LED's tend to have a whiter light, which gives better black definition and obviously use less power.

The LED you describe is OLED and is very expensive as you stated.
#28
edge lit LED is still awesome and much brighter than a normal LCD. i would have this TV for this price no problem.

Full HD is really the best thing for gaming. Playing games like GTA in HD is really a great experience.

For PC Gaming I would agree, but for console gaming aren't many games still rendered in 720p then scaled to 1080p (if required)? Obviously the next gen of consoles are likely to be powerful enough to render all games in 1080p, so over the life of these panels (assuming a few years) your statement will probably hold true for all types of gaming.

I could not agree more. I have a LG 50PK990 plasma and as BBC regional is not available in HD, I just flick back to the regular standard. I am missing nothing. I swear, the difference if any is so marginal on this TV that I've told Sky to bin HD or give it to me for free.

If you are a sad adult playing video games all day then perhaps and perhaps some movies are better but I live in the real world with a real life and I watch a little TV. TV is not my life.

What if you are a sad troll reading message boards all day and waiting to post some completely pointless and irrelevant message??

Fully backlit LED also trumps conventional LCD backlighting as the LED's can be switched off when/where required to give a deeper blacks. Sidelit LED does not offer this but still looks really nice B-)

TRANSLATED: HD is rubbish because it does nothing to make East Midlands Today look any better. And if I can't spot the difference, there is no difference to spot. And anyone whose TV usage is different from mine is wrong.
