LG's 2013 Sets Drop CCFL Completely

Posted Wed Jan 2, 2013 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

While last year they kept a few around, LG has done away with non-LED backlit sets entirely.

LED technology has finally trickled down from high-end sets all the way to the entry level. LG has completely done away with CCFL and has LED lighting as standard in every set they're launching next year. They're not ditching 720p though – some sets will still be sold at the lower resolution.

The company has 16 different series ready to hit shelves in 2013 and a total of 45 different individual models. We know that a UHDTV is on the way as well as Google TVs. The company is expected to push its smart TVs as well.
