Even though Toshiba's SED technology will be a no show
at CES this year, Proton let us know that its LED
backlit LCDs will be on display. The last time we saw these HDTVs
(the 42-inch 1080p P42L1 and 32-inch 720p P32L1) at Computex they were expected to hit this year but now are slated for a second quarter 2007 release. In case you've forgotten during the long wait for this technology to reach reasonable prices
, LED backlighting (like SED) promises more accurate color reproduction
than current CCFL
We'll have to wait until next year to see which one actually delivers.
