Electricpig: We’ve managed to get our mitts on a Philips 42PFL9803 LCD television, one of the very first HDTVs to feature LED backlighting.
Most LCD televisions have poor black levels due to the lights behind the screen, which can’t be turned off – so light leaks through the black parts of the picture, making them look grey.
Not so with this “LED Lux” TV – it uses hundreds of LED clusters to light the picture, each of which can be completely switched off when needed. So while you might have a bright object in the middle of the picture, any black areas around it are unlit – so they actually look black.
It also comes loaded with Philips best picture processing and 100Hz tech, which helps by smoothing out motion judder, cleaning up noise and enhancing colours and contrast.
