Via the product page on Panasonic's site:
"This system places LED backlights on the top and bottom of the panel, and sends the light toward the center of the screen. Using light guides and diffusers, it distributes the light over the entire panel to provide backlighting. There is no need to cover the entire rear surface with LEDs, so the panel module is thinner and a great deal of energy is saved."
So this model is edge-lit? "No need to cover the entire rear surface with LED's". Really? Is this just a PR way of selling consumers edge lit LED LCD's when in reality a backlit LED LCD with local dimming would be far superior?
