Pros: (1) Thin (1.2") construction vs approx 4" for conventional CCFT backlighting. (Average life of LED vs. CCFT is about the same.)
Cons: (1) It's NOT an LED-TV. It's an LCD-TV that used LED's for backlighting.
(2) Way overprived for what you get. ( Expect to pay 2x, 3x more LED backlighting.)
(3) LED's are not trouble free, as many belive. Many "die" early.
Summary: Samsung's LED-TV is NOT a true LED TV. A true LED television is one where the screen itself is composed of LED's. Those TV screens you see (in bright sunlight) at sporting events, concers, etc are real LED televisions. Take your Samsung (or Visio) LED-TV outside in the sun and the only thing you'll see is the manufacturers name (usually a metal plate glued to the frame.
True LED type television sets are available., but very expensive. For example, Sony has an 11 inch OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) television you can buy, Cost: $3000.00. There are also a few OLED cell phones available and the new Microsoft DUNE-HD MP3/Video player also has an OLED screen.
Don't let yourself be conned. Read, study and become informed before you hand over your hard earned money.
