And yes, the LED source can be tailored to produce white backlight. This is what Sharp did in their latest 700 series…
The only explanation is that you are new to these forums and are trying to prove something (to yourself)…. Just avoid stating my post in the future please… you use them in completely wrong context which I find offending.
Now I am going to give you a nervous breakdown.
When you say "LED source" and are not specifying a tri-color array, you are talking about a white LED. Why does my naming upset you so much when that is the correct technical term for this type of LED?
No, I am not new to the forums on the net, just this one. I've been working with this stuff for a long time. I am mainly here to provide technical help to those asking for it. If a duscussion pops up (such as this one) where there is incorrect information and/or clarification is needed, I might jump in for the heck of it. There is usually one person who wants to "spar" with me. I am not in this to prove anything to myself. I've already proven myself in this industry and just recently received an award for what I have contributed.
The original post asked about the longevity of LED versus fluorescent lamps and I responded appropriately by responding that the LED technology was too new to provide accurate data. You jumped in with power consumption opinions which had nothing to do with the original question.
To end this thread and answer the power consumption issue I took 4 different LCD models (of the same year) with different backlight sources and hooked them up to an amp meter. They were all set to maximum backlight output. This should prove my point.
40" with CCFL backlights: 1.56 amps = 188 watts
40" with HCFL backlights: 1.16 amps = 140 watts
40" with edge lit LED: 1.86 amps = 205 watts
The only tri-color backlit model I have is a 55" so this would not make a good comparison and I believe the no one makes a 40" tri-color anyway. Can we move on now?
