Question

Has anyone else noticed any backlight bleeding?

By backlight bleed, I mean that portions of the screen will be noticeably brighter when the screen is supposed to be black or dark colors. This usually occurs in the corners.

No, these were obviously poorly designed if designed at all. This is my second one and the backlight shines through just as bad as the first one I returned, except at the bottom middle instead of the corners. Maybe if I return it again the next one will not have it but who knows. It might be in worse shape, this one came with scratches on the frame and one of the components not working.

I set mine up in a near pitch black room and watched avatar for one of my free movie coupons from dish net hd service and all i can say was it was gorgous, no off color or brightness issues on the screen to be found. Perhaps your tv was dropped in transit or defectively made, 1/100-however many will come off the line bad or get roughed up in route, but the warrenty seems to cover this if you havent had it for very long you should be able to get a straight up free replacement ^^

I can tell when this television is on because the screen becomes noticeably gray even in a daylight lit room situation where it shouldn't be so apparent.

Excellent base included in box, attaches by 4 heavy inch long screws into well threaded holes on the back of the tv, also has swivel built into the foot plate so if you need to move the tv one way of the other a bit and dont wanna twist the whole thing or stand around to do so it allows a good bit of swivel to either side.

It's about 10x16 inches at the base, less than a half inch high, with a swivel bar sticking up, and a screw-in holder for the back of the TV.

It barely shows from the front, and it swivels very easily. The TV also has holes to allow you to bolt it to the wall, if you have kids or dogs that might bump it. I don't, so it just sits on top of my old TV's cabinet-type stand.

It would look fine on any stand or table. Sleek, clean, and unobtrusive. You won't notice it, when that TV is on.

LED GIVE YOU A BETTER PICTURE QUALITY OVER LCD YOU REALLY NEED TO HAVE BOTH. LED HAS BACK LIT WHICH IS BACK LIGHTING. IT MAKE THE COLORS IN TV POP MORE VIVID COLORS AND MORE CLEAR PICTURE. IT ALSO IS MORE EFFICIENT ON ENERGY. SOMETHING WE ALL SHOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT. WITH LCD COLOR IS JUST IN FRONT OF THE SCREEN ON TV. THAT GIVES YOU A CLOUDY SCREEN. THAT IS WHY YOU NEED A LED LCD TV WITH BOTH THE PICTURE QUALITY IS PERFECT.

LED-LCD has added LED lightening in conjunction with the LCD lights to enhance the contrast ratio and picture quality.

Three letters.
Oh yeah... LED-LCD's are cheaper to run as they use less juice. Some sets control banks of LED's behind the screen. Some are edge-lit. Some are one big panel of LED's behind the screen. LCD TV's use fluorescent backlighting and do not display really dark blacks. Read up on the different technologies. You'll learn a lot. You may want to concentrate on the TV's speed instead. (60 Hz, 120 Hz, 240 Hz...)

Yes it has good sound. The factory setting is quiet and lame. You need to go into the sound settings on the menu and you can set it up any way you like. It's easy to do.

No, but remember that digital cables transfer only 0's and 1's. Do not spend a lot of money on digital cables. With analog cables quality really matters, but a $10 HDMI cable will do the same job as an overpriced one.
