The 2010 models from Samsung offer LED EdgeLit technology. There isn't an equivalent to the LED backlit technology available this year in our offering.
The benefits of the EdgeLit is that the power consumption is less than traditional televisions, and allows the panels to be extremely thin.
Does that help?
