The very reason the edge-LED TV gets its name is attributed to the fact that the light emitting diodes are assembled along the edge of the display, permitting manufactures the pleasure of creating a pleasingly thin design. Apart from that, both back-lit and edge-lit LEDs use an almost equal amount of LEDs to light the LCD screen. Thus, they are actually not very much different. So, at the end of the day, it is really up to the consumers what they are willing to forgo, and what they want. Having knowledge about the LED TV and what goes with it will help them make an informed decision.
