the biggest problem with edgelit is the background uniformity. when done well, usually with dimming, it's not a real issue. but when done poorly, it can make the tv absolutely unwatchable in the dark. if you watch tv at night with the lights off, or in a light controlled room, you DEFINITELY want to check out the TV in a dark environment and make sure the store has some kind of satisfaction guarantee. it's very difficult to see the flashlighting and clouding in the store.taylour wrote: ↑Dec 22nd, 2012 5:00 amIs the 55" hitachi deal for $778 any good? 2001 has it for $1000
Looking to get a deal on a non 3d, non smart tv led in the range of 55"-60".
Bestbuy has a 55" insigna led for $600 but the hitachi seems like a better deal since it isn't no name. Still waiting for the BB and FS flyers, hoping to see a better deal.
How does edge lit compare to full led?
but here, to give you an idea. here's a pic i snapped of a samsung d6300 i took before returning it. this is supposed to be a flat black screen:
that was actually the 2nd one i brought home, the first was even worse because a lot of the clouding was at about 2/3rds of the way up, right where the 'black' sky is supposed to be in most night scenes. so it was super obviously. trying to watch a movie like batman made me want smash the tv.
