RGB LED Backlit Displays?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm just reading about them now and finding that they produce a very nice colour spectrum. Some topping to 116% of the adobe 1998 colour gamut.

What are some good RGB LED Backlit Displays? Any 120hz monitors that take advantage of this?

As far as i know, only a few brands made those, and they are not sold anymore, and only tvs, not monitors.

Any TVs still on sale? Why were they discontinued?

Pretty much, RGB LEDs don't offer much advantage real over CCFLs in terms of gamut but they are more expensive and difficult to produce. This is why we don't see them more widely used.
They were used in some Dell laptops, but this decision was made because RGB LEDs can be put in a more compact space than a comparable CCFL.

The only panels I know of that are RGB backlit are colour proofing ones such as the HP DreamColor LP2480zx. And such a monitor has no need for a 120Hz refresh rate.

Edit:
The HP panel I listed has 133% CIE 1976 coverage. Although that's very nice, unless your doing colour proofing for a living, you wont see much advantage over a 117% coverage, such as that on the Dell U3011

So any HDTV pretty much offers 100% of the NSTC colour gamut? As long as it is CCFL lit?\\

edit; and a 10-bit processor

It's probably more dependant on the type of panel used. Plasma might be a good option here for HDTVs with good colour.

You'll find no consumer monitors and at this point practically no tv's with RGB LED's. Just too expensive for not that great a benefit. The standard bearer of consumer RGB LED was probably Sony's XBR8 tv. The Dell XPS with RGB LED screens also looked really nice...
