I want to be clear that what you're about to read may be wrong
When you write, "No chance, I read somewhere..." I just roll my eyes hard.
Things you "read somewhere" are wrong really, really often.
I've now gone to the Samsung web site and looked up these EH models. The fact that they are quite frankly fat
can only be explained by the fact they are "direct LED" -- which, as I've said, is a newer, cheaper technology that is already in use outside of Europe/Japan/U.S. where the obsession with thinness hasn't been as paramount and lower-price is prized more.
The spec sheet mentions nothing
about the type of LEDs, but mentions LEDs in the model line.
There was also a reference from DisplaySearch in a January 2012 publication to this: "many panel makers are introducing new cost efficient models with thicker direct LED backlights".
This sounds like one of them.
