There's no arguing with the fact that LED sounds so much more attractive than CCFL when it comes to discussing LCD backlighting. Can't say whether that entered Grundig's thoughts when it came to releasing their first LED backlit LCDs though...
Grundig have just dropped two new LED backlit TVs on the market - the 18.5-inch HD screen worth $439 and the 21.6-inch Full HD model worth $529. Both sets have a six star energy rating, integrated HD tuner and a single HDMI 1.3 input.
