    Small baby steps, and we'll make it to semi-infinite contrast ratios.

    yep, I think Samsung has licensed BrightSide's technology, but I don't think this is based on that technology. I guess we'll have to wait a bit longer before we see HDR PC monitors. :)

    this guy made an LED backlight for his LCD, personally I don't think it's too great in terms of brightness (admittedly he had a couple of LEDs die) but I hope Samsung do a far better job.

    Also, haven't Samsung had LED backlights in their Plasmas?

    isn't this just a panel that uses LEDs in place of the CCFLs at the edges of the screen?

    i mean, sure, it will have better colour and be longer lasting but i don't think that makes it have anything in common with brightside, which has a matrix of LEDs covering the rear of the panel

    Nice :D Having seen LED backlit notebook displays no doubt these will catch on quick when they hit the market

    I bet they will as the power usage has got to be lower for an LED based screen!

    Plasmas are active displays. They don't use backlights.

    Looks quite nice and the potential power-savings in notebook is very welcome but I'm still waiting to see the HDR displays, they're gonna be great! :)

    Sony already have LED based LCD laptop screens, and they are indistinguishable from CCFL-lit screens. The advantages are reduced heat and power consumption, and longer life span. They are also more resistant to damage.

    A mod works better, of course, when you use a dense strip of high-brightness white micro LEDs.

    Plasma screens, as pointed out, do not use backlighting as the pixels generate their own light. OLEDs do the same.

    This doesn't really have much to do with LEDs...
    The contrast ratio is really all about the panel, and so is the viewing angle.

    Looks pretty cool though.

    Not necessarily... how does the BrightSide manage a 200,000:1 contrast ratio? It's because of the backlight... the panel is the same as the one sitting right next to it in the Westinghouse display here: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2005/10/04/brightside_hdr_edr/1.html

    So will LED backlighting do away with 'backlight bleed' in lcds and plasmas?...

    With blacks so dark it literally sucks the photons out of the air, and whites so brilliant you would be better off staring at the sun :D
    111% of colors is good, but no doubts its going to cost an arm and three quarters of your left leg.

    I think a three quarters of your right leg is also acceptable payment
