"TV badly ruined by horrible LED backlight uniformity"1.5 starson by kevinponeill
Pros: industrial design, thin bezel, thin enclosure
Cons: edge-lit LED, no glasses, no wi-fi adapter
Summary: This is my first LED LCD TV, and I now know why ALL stores demo their TVs with very brightly lit scenes: most LCDs are horrible at producing deep blacks, and LED LCDs suffer from poor backlight uniformity. I exchanged the first unit for a second because the backlight was so uneven, I certainly COULD see it in dark TV show or movie scenes. The second unit was no better. Dark scenes in I Am Legend, Underworld, and Rob Zombie's Halloween clearly reveal the bright spots, and I now have to return the second set. I haven't decided what I'll buy, but I'd MUCH rather spend far less on a regular LCD whose blacks are less deep but uniform than $1300 on an LED LCD whose blacks are super deep by so uneven they ruin all the dark scenes. What's the point?!
