I am thinking of upgrading to an LCD-LED TV.
Samsung has two models, the B7000 and B6000.
Sharp has the LE700UN.
I think Sony has a model too, but they are too expensive compared to the Samsung and Sharp.
I checked out the Samsung B6000 model at Sears yesterday. It was the best picture LCD there. However, the Sony and Samsung regular LCD models were very close, but the blacks were better on the LED model.
They only had the cheap Sharp and some other no-name brands there. You can tell the cheaper TVs are not quite as good.
Anyone check out the Sharp LCD-LED yet? I own a Sharp now and it does have the dreaded banding. Although during normal viewing (when I am not looking for it) it is not noticeable.
i haven't seen a sharp led tv yet, but i have seen some samsungs. they look pretty good (particularly on black levels). i mostly prefer Plasmas over LCDs, but I really like how the current crop of LED tvs look.
also i think they're just referred to as LED tvs, not led-lcd tvs. they're LED backlit, not LCD backlit.
They are LCD tvs. Standard LCD tvs are CCFL (fluorescent light) backlit. These new ones are LED backlit. That is why I called them LED/LCD. I don't want to confuse it with OLED. Which is the mother of all flat panel techs.
I just checked out Sony Style website which shows it coming out with LCD-LED TVs in later this month but are very expensive.

Samsung has a 3rd model which according to CNET is the best picture quality you can get next to the Pioneer plasma Kuro.

It comes out next week and the 46" model $3,239.00 from Amazon.
It uses the LED tech called local dimming where the LED backlight can be turned on or off close to pixel by pixel. Unlike standard CCFL or other LED backlights which is always on and turns blacks into dark grey.
I think I might wait until these local dimming LED based LCDs drop in price.
