There is it is "MY CAREFACE!" Why did you need to post this? No one cares. All new products cost more..deal with it.
Samsung (and other manufacturers) have been advertising many of their HDTV's as LED (Light Emitting Diode) TV's. This is a pure and simple falsehood, designed to confuse the buying public.
ALL of these recently introduced Samsung LED TV (such as advertised above) are in fact LCD (Liquid Crystal Diode) TV's which use LED's for backlighting vs. the CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lighting) used in most current and older flat panel TV's and laptop computer screens.
True LED displays are those you often see at oudoor sporting events, concerts, etc. The picture are LED's themselves. Several Cell phone manufacturers have models with OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screens which are bright and clearly visible in direct sunlight. The new Microsoft DUNE-HD utilizes an OLED screen as does a $3000.00 Sony 11" OLED-TV introduced about 1 year ago.
Here is a quote from Wikipedea:
"LED-backlit LCD television or LED TV (term used by Samsung Electronics, Toshiba, Philips, and LG Electronics) is an LCD TV that uses LED backlighting. LED's are used for backlighting, instead of fluorescent lights. The term LED TV is disputed and the complaint is that the display is not composed of 100% LEDs and so should not be called LED TV.".

Don't be fooled by manufacturer's claims, which are designed to confuse the public and seperate you from your hard earned money.
CCFL lamps have a life averaging 60,000 hours and LED's about 70,000 hours. Light output from both slowly fades, with their light output half-life both being 30,000-35,000 hours.
In my opinion, Samsung's 2x and 3x additional charge for an LED backlit TV vs. same sized CCFL backlit units, is "highway robbery".
Read and become informed. LED backlit HDTV's exhibit problems not seen in CCFL backlit HDTV's.
New is not always better......just more expensive.
