Is there really a difference between and LED backlit monitor with a TFT Active Matrix screen and an LED monitor? Or is it just another way to confuse the consumer?

You can thank Samsung for coining the phrase "LED HDTV" which then migrated to "LED monitor"; thus causing some confusion in the market. A "LED HDTV" / "LED monitor" both use LCD panel, but uses LED (a.k.a. WLED) backlight instead of traditional florescent backlight. LED (a.k.a. WLED) = Blue LEDs with a yellowish phosphorus coating to imitate white. Share bgwhite11 May 31, 2011 11:53:48 PM Best answer selected by bgwhite11. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
