Question IPS vs VA / edge vs back-lit - is there a database of models?

Looking for a new LCD TV for the lounge and ideally i'd like back-lit and an IPS panel. It's only going to be a 40" screen for a secondary room, but nevertheless it might as well be as good as possible. What is frustrating is that it is remarkably hard to establish what type of panel and backlighting is used. Even the manufacturer's detailed specs often don't specify.

So I wondered how can you find this out if the manufacturer doesn't specify? Is anyone aware of a database or list that has been created?

Perfect! That is exactly what I was hoping existed. Cheers.

Mods - I don't know if it's just me that thinks this, but it would be a really handy for people to have this as a sticky.
