Introduction to the Sony 46HX929 46" Backlit LED-Array HDTV
All LED LCD TVs are not designed the same. Manufacturers have two approaches they can take with an LED design: An edge-lit design that is thin and functions like a conventional CCFL backlight, or a backlit LED-array that isn't as thin, but allows for precise control over lighting individual areas of the screen. Using a full array of LEDs allows for LCDs to finally produce deep, rich blacks that plasma and other technologies have always beaten them on. Black areas of an image can achieve true black by turning the LEDs off.
The Sony HX929 line is an LED-backlit design, and sits at the top of their LCD line. With a full array of Internet Applications, as well as the best picture quality Sony can put in a TV set today, it is their statement LCD unit. Have they managed to produce a unit that can rival other technologies for black levels and eliminate the side effects we've seen in other LCD units?
