List of 2014 direct lit LED TVs anywhere?

Is there a list of 2014 direct lit LED TV models anywhere (local dimming or otherwise)? I've searched and can't find one.

Thanks! Surprisingly little industry support for this tech.

Because it is more expensive and the vast majority of American consumers are just plain cheap.

"Direct lit LED TV"?? Is that a LED back lit TV with a LED panel??

Free, abundant OTA television separates this country from many others. ATSC1 has only been in force since 2009. The wireless industry has enough spectrum. Enough of 'planned obsolesce'.

I find the term "direct" (as opposed to "edge") in the "Backlight" column of television spec sheets for some "full array" products.

It was meant to poke fun at the misused and inaccurate "LED TV" term.

Panel manufacturers refer to only 'edge' or 'direct' type backlights.


Full Array has been intended to refer to the density of LEDs on the backlight - where 'direct' may include a small number of lights positioned further from the panel (and so thicker TVs), 'full array' should have a denser array of more LEDs positioned closer to the panel.


If a TV supports local dimming, it should be full array, but different manufacturers have taken differing positions in adopting this language.


Vizio seems to have embraced the use of 'Full Array' to differentiate their FALD technology.

When the use of the term is as common as that one it has become part of the language. "LED-backlit-LCD monitor" is pretty cumbersome.
