2011 Backlit LED TVs?


Active Member
I am thinking of buying a new TV in the next few months.
I've heard good things about LG in general.

I want a 42" set with Freeview HD. I would like an LED set and have heard that backlit should produce better pictures than edge lit.

I've been reviewing the 2011 models and can't seem to find the replacement model for the 8900.

The LG sites seem to be pushing 3D and Smart TV features. Is backlit LED not worth the extra cost?

It seems that the LW7 and LW9 TVs got delayed because of the change from active to passive. LG have said these are coming soon, in my opinion the backlit models ARE better but it depends on price. Check out the LW5 and LW6 threads, some people have bleed but most seem happy with the edge lit panels. :)
