What is an LCD-LED HDTV?

It is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV with an LED (Light Emitting Diode) backlight. So it uses many LEDs to light up the screen instead of one fluorescent lamp like most other LCD TVs.

LCD is the type of display. LED is the type of backlight used. Traditional LCDs use CCFL. LED uses less power and runs cooler. LED displays a wider color gamut.

AMAZING Picture quality
Bad Sound
This tv is simply amazing. I was looking at getting this TV or a '46" Sony LCD. At the store, the side by side showed the color in the LCD to appear washed out compared to this TV. I wanted to buy a TV that I wouldn't feel like I wanted to replace later on, so I got this LED. What surprised me was how the TV looked better at home than it did in the store. I have a Directv DVR and an XBOX 360, all connected by HDMI so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. The only down fall to this TV is the sound. It doesn't seem to be able to get very loud, likely due to the speaker being on the back right next to the wall. But I would recommend Sony's Bravia 1000W home theater system which sells for $350 to compensate.

I have never had a clearer, more perfect picture ever on any tv. I decided on Samsung. . Brand new on the market. The contrast ratio of 1m to 1 is beautiful. everyone comments on just how black the blacks are! No gray or blue tint at all, total absence of color! Set up is a breeze and the menu guide couldn't be easier. This IS the best tv on the planet right now! Sure others will come along, but right now The CHAMP ! I had fun watching the tv news and weather, it looked like i was in the studio. For those older, remember the first time you saw a color tv? The first time you saw HD tv? Well this tv is the next step up from that! BUY THIS TV, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED !

Fantastic picture quality
sound is okay, but not great, could be better
I waited for a long time to figure out how to fit a flat wide screen tv into the built-in wall cabinet in my family room. Samsung solved this problem with this thin tv that allows me to mount it flush against the cabinet using a wall mount with the tv only overlapping 1" on each side. All the other tvs I searched would stick out too far from the wall and would look unsightly. The thickness of this tv, the incredible picture quality and positive reviews sold me and I am not disappointed. I set up Directv HD and the picture quality and clarity is among the best I have seen. The only complaint I have is with the sound quality as mentioned by other reviewers. The sound was horrible at first, but did improve quite a bit when Directv HD was installed. If sound is really important, you would probably have to buy a separate speaker system to be happy. For me, the amazing picture and functionality of this tv far outweighs the sound limitations.
