LCD's last forever (just about ) the Liquid Crystals....
the older LCD displays were CFFL back lighted displays would last as long about 10,000 hrs or more ( that's what in most LCD computer monitors ) IIRC & as the bulb would slowly dim after many years , which on some sets can be replaced ,
this display is LED back lighted with a full array LED's , meaning there are no mirrors to extend the light across the panel as some of last years back lighted LED 70"ers were ( those are the ones with the problems with dark corners)
& LED's have a life into & over 100,000 hours IIRC
back lighted ,full array, LED displays are the cream of the crop in LCD LED displays
edge lighted LED LCD's are garbage , those are the ultra thin ones . they have what called flashlighting problems as some LED's were brighter OR dimmer than their neighbors which showed up as looking like a search light from the edge of the screen , radiating out towards the center of the screen.
