A new series of backlit LED TV from LG Electronics brings full HD resolution and Smart features into your living room.

It has a native refresh rate of 120Hz which is sufficient for clear and bright pictures. This series of LG television uses backlight LED which is also known as Direct LED to display 1080p full HD display. This is a step up from the previously used cold cathode fluorescent (CCFL) backlighting. In this case of Direct LED, the brightness is spread evenly over the display but cannot be controlled individually. Most of the higher priced TV models have moved on to Edge lit and Dynamic backlight LED, which provide superior picture and contrast, but comes at a higher price category. READ MORE

VIZIO M501d Razor LED TVBuy VIZIO M501d TV

The M Razor series is one of the latest offerings from Vizio providing with near edge to edge 1080p (Full HD) stunning pictures with LED backlighting, brighter images and deeper blacks.  It boasts of a narrow bezel and a thin profile, making it lighter and energy efficient. Available in 9 screen sizes from 32 inch to 80 inch, this is one of the most versatile feature rich televisions on the market.

The LED backlit 3D screen has a dynamic contrast ratio of 10M (million) :1, and a very fast effective refresh rate of 240Hz. The high refresh rates helps in minimizing motion blur that is often observed during car chases or fast action sequences. The television features smart dimming (also called local dimming) which is to reduce the backlight only on localized portion of the screen to make the blacks look darker and whites brighter. With edge lighting, as is the technology used in these Razor series, the localized dimming sometimes results in a halo effect around the darkened pictures. READ MORE

Sony KDL-40R450A Review


Model: Sony KDL-40R450A 40-Inch 60Hz 1080p LED HDTV (Black)

Sony KDL-40R450ABuy Sony KDL-40R450A

Sony is renowned for making high end world class products – so to find a new 1080p 40 inch LED TV from Sony just under $500 is unexpected. As part of the R450 series, these Sony televisions have most of the basic functionalities that you will usually need.

One of the reasons for a low price of this Sony flat screen TV is that its 40” display has a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The higher the refresh rate (higher priced TVs have 120 Hz or greater) the smoother and clearer is the picture while viewing anything with fast motion (like a car chase, or a high action movie). Usually with a 60 Hz refresh rate, some fast motion gets displayed as a blur. Fortunately in this TV, Sony has what it calls, Motionflow XR 120 technology, that provides clearer and sharper sports or action sequences. READ MORE

Samsung UN40ES6100 Review

Model: Samsung UN40ES6100 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz Slim LED HDTV

Samsung makes quality good graded television, and this Samsung UN40ES6100 40 inch television is one of them. Though considered a middle of the range TV, it will satisfy most of your viewing needs.  It has a LED (Light Emitting Diode) screen instead of LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) which is a recent technology and provides sharper and vibrant pictures with higher contrast (the range between blacks and white colors).

This is a 2D TV and costs considerably less than similar 3D television. The 3D craze which started a few years back is over – it no longer makes sense to buy a 3D television. Apart from only a handful of 3D movies available, you need special glasses and the effect at home doesn’t come even near to what you get in movie halls. READ MORE
