Edge-lit means that the LEDs that illuminate the pixels are located only on the edges of the set.

In general, full-array LED is considered a superior technology when it comes to picture quality, but edge-lit sets have one major advantage: depth. Edge-lit LED TVs can be much thinner than those lit with either a full LED panel or traditional fluorescent (non-LED) backlights. For that reason, most of the super-thin sets you see in stores will be edge-lit.

SAMSUNG make the screens used in these Technika TV's. This is not old or sub par technology. This is the real thing.

Yeah, but some people are brand *****s.

im merely outlining one of the ways in which they could have obtained this information,

apologies if i offended you lol!

a company often advertise this thing though tesco direct says nothing about it,technika are known to use samsung panels on sets around this size such as the 22-208 & 26-207 but in this particular case i am not sure

I previously had a Technika set which blew up in my kids bedroom but that was an LCD number . Tesco were great and there was no qualms with getting a refund , just contacted their customer support with my receipt details and they gave me a code to return it to the shop . I'm assuming the LED's will be better but since it was the back workings and not the screen that blew up I couldn't say one way or the other . All I can say is I was happy with the customer service received afterwards :thumbsup:

Brown please :thumbsup:

Not a bad price considering LG or Samsung would have made the screen

Don't forget that a good panel =/= a good TV. Many more things go into making a TV, such as picture processing and scaling. I know we all like to have a good laugh at Peggy Bradford, but it isn't always about brand snobbery..... the respected companies have a lot more technology going on inside their sets.

Good Deal for a spare TV - Heat Added

only HD ready? so not full HD then I assume? Have seen some LED screend Full HD 1080i around for £170 and full LED... So although this is good as the ones I suggest are few and far between I personally would keep looking. But for anyone not fussed about full HD or needing good value at this price this seems very good..

I wouldn't get hung up on LED technology - it's just another way of lighting the screen - pandering to the green brigade as it's ever so slightly easier on the leccy.

Any edge lit ones I've seen in action are quite poor IMHO......

i'm buying this for the NICAM stereo sound and edge lighting

please continue to buy this so I can get a 40" Sharp LED 100Hz for under £500

All the Samsung ones are edge lit, and although not as nice as the good Sharp ones, they are still a nice tv. People go for the ultra-thin gimmick though.

I bought one last week as a cheap TV for the bedroom, all my other LCD's are Samsung or Sony. The picture quality doesnt match up to what I get of either the Samsung's or the Sony but its good enough for the bedroom. Freeview works fine, the DVD player is a little noisey when loading but once its playing its fine. Overall for £150 its not too bad at all. It is a Samsung Panel, states it clearly on the box and on in the user manual.

I would say theoretically full-array LED technology is considered the superior technology (partiuclarly RGB LED backlighting) and thought to have the greater potential. In practice it has had issues and so its the individual implimentation which matters.

There have been some good implimentations higher up the price scale, but below the £1500 IMO the edge-lit implimentations have the edge (pun intended :)) over LED array sets.

I think that is begining to change now however. But just looking at the backlight tech is not going to ensure you pick the best set for your money.

Well given the size of modern TV sets each mm of extra depth does have a big effect on the overall volume of the set.

You may not think that matters but we live in a 3D world and our eyes/brain are very addept at picking these things up. For example my old LCD looks bigger and dominates the room (similar sized rooms) far more then my edge-lit Samsung.

Obviously its not the primary concern for everyone, but if you are worried about your TV dominating your room, you should take depth into consideration.

Tesco site says PC input N/A, but it does have HDMI, so assuming that you are already using that input for the TV feed, you would need to buy an HDMI switch and a DVI/HDMI dongle, assuming your PC has DVI output.. If your PC only has VGA output, then I think the answer is no (certainly not cheaply). HTH.

Resolution is stated as 1600 x 1200, which must surely be wrong. that's 4:3 aspect, and surely this is widescreen. Maybe Stormy78 can confirm?
