What are Edge-lit LED TVs?
Edge-lit LED TVs are arranged around the perimeter of the screen and lit is distributed
via a diffusive reflection panel behind the LCD screen. First generation of LED
TV is the Edge Lit LED TV. These TVs were commercially introduced in the market
in early 2009. It has only slight advantage in picture quality over CCFLs but it
produces the thinnest of all the LCD TVs. The biggest thing to remember about LED
TVs is that they offer a better picture than CCFL. Edge-lit LED TVs may be thinner
than their backlit counterparts, but they are also less uniform in terms of backlighting.
Edge-lit LED TV’s provide a remarkably vivid picture, thanks to high contrast ratios,
making it perfect for gaming with amazing deep black levels and well-rendered shadows.
Some edge-lit LED TV’s feature local dimming. The primary advantage that edge-lit
LED televisions have over traditional LCD screens is that they can be much thinner.
Another useful feature of edge-lit LED TV that less energy is not only good for
the environment but also save energy bills consumed per month, they are more energy
efficient (by up to 40%). Edge-Lit LED TV’s produces far less heat, with little
to no heat emanating from the set and it was cool to the touch. Edge-lit LED TVs
are less expensive as compared to backlit LED televisions.
