Good article! The authors claim that the 'edge-lit LED backlighting TV's provide good optical uniformity in screen sizes up to 40"...' but there are many brands that go higher, up to 60" that display reasonably good pictures. Perhaps these larger ones employ more sophisticated light guides?
This technology is growing so fast) 15 years ago I had a lamp TV. 5 years ago I bought a plasma. A year ago I replaced it for a LED Tv. Now what? I will have to buy this new direct backlit system TV? I know it's more efficient. But at the moment I have doubts..
