LED TVs seem to be gaining momentum
Given their sleek sizes, their good looks and fantastic picture quality, there is little doubt why LED televisions are growing in popularity. Top television manufacturers in the market today seem to be launching newer television sets which make use of LED technology. Better known as high brightness LEDs, they are making headway into the LCD TV market in a big way.
The IFA, also known as the Internationale Funkausstellung, running in Berlin this week is a consumer electronics show and is attended by over 6,800 accredited journalists from 78 countries. At the Internationale Funkausstellung this year, Philips showcased their latest offering: a high end line of LCD televisions called ‘Aurea’.
The Aurea 2009 has a very unique feature. In its backlight, it has close to 250 LEDs. This feature alone gives the user 40% energy saving compared to a regular LCD television. This not only means lower bills for the consumer, but also good news for the environment. Placing these smart televisions on TV brackets would offer a classy TV watching experience.
Close at hand to rival Philips at the show was close contender and Korean television manufacturer LG. LG’s offering at the exhibition was rather stellar, presenting the SL 9000 model which uses an LED backlight. In terms of aesthetics, this new model is borderless. This means when switched off these LCD televisions look like a flat black piece of glass.
