Some people on this site are absurd. "How dare they list a deal that isn't perfect for me!"
It's often as absurd as you describe, but there's also a benefit and purpose in pointing out deficiencies: It can save those who don't understand some distinctions from taking a bad decision. The consequence of being non-LED is typically that there are higher energy requirements and a thicker device, but many people don't realize that. Case in point: my wife pointed out this thread to me, thinking it matched perfectly what I am looking for (based upon size, hz, brand, WiFi, but not realizing the rest).
The energy consumption is silly. Same for plasma vs LCD. The difference is like $10-$25 a year. To me, this is a non issue. Over the lifetime of the tv, $100 isnt going to make a difference in what I choose.
