Is it true that all of Edge LED TVs suffer from clouding and flahslighting to some extent?

Ok, I just went to the shop where 55D7000 and Sony 55EX720 where standing next to each other.
There were some music videos on them with plenty of black scenes. And both of the sets had flashlighting from sides on dark scenes. Samsung had a bit more then Sony. Sure, it took me some time to distinguish flashlighting in brightly lit shop. But after some time I was able to see it quite clearly. I guess at home in the dark room those light leaks will be clearly visible.
From the otherhands , there was also a normal LCD TV (not led) with blacks that looked like greys. Terrible in comparison with LED Tvs.
So, I guess , it is a common problem for Edge LED lit TVs to have some light leak from the sides in dark scenes. Some people can live with it, some people can't.
