I've got the Vizio M470nv and have almost zero flashlighting. If there is, it is not noticeable at all.
OK time has come, the wife put me on a budget to get a new TV and i have found a few (insignia, westinghouse, Vizio) that fit what i want. all are edge lit LED LCD TV's, 1080P blah blah blah. so i have been reading reviews of them and it seems to be a problem with ALL edge lit LED tv's.
I have seen pictures and "horror" stories about the light bleeding or "flashlighting" from the edges.
now the only pictures i have seen are in a completely dark room with a black screen or really dard scene in a movie.
My question is, How noticable is this "flashlighting" in a partially lit room? the wife and i NEVER watch movies in a completely dark room, I dont like it, and neither does she. are we going to notice it at all?
I was really wanting to jump up to a 46" but i can get the 55" insignia LED for $900 (crazy cheap price) but it suffers from the light bleeding. should i just stick with traditional LCD and forget about LED (since i cant afford back lit, local dimming ect) or will i be OK.
just checked out the samsung 51" PN51D530A3 online, but i will have to go into the store to actually check it out.
and there will always be the burn in issue (even thought it isn't much of an issue these days) in the back of my mind.
Would never spend $1000 on a ****ty LED LCD TV when $1200 1080p plasmas are available that will absolutely destroy them picture wise.
With that said, my roommate has a 32" Vizio LED LCD and I didn't notice any edge bleeding.
This is probably 2783839 times better than that insignia
or this, which has a slightly inferior panel
my gaming position (lol) is about 6 feet or so.
we have an unusual living room setup. I'll try and snap a pic today when i get home and take more accurate dimensions.
i will most likely be mounting this on the wall soon after purchase though.
Minimum 2 HDMI inputs, 1 composite input, 1 component input, and 1 audio output. everything else is just icing on the cake for me.
There is my setup. I stand corrected about the distance. It is actually 8 feet and 12 feet. Still think i want 1080p though. Even though the chart says otherwise, it will make me feel better knowing I have those extra pixels up there.

Reflections though... huge problem for me.
There's always money in the banana stand.
also, the only seat that would get the glare is the love seat due to the angle of everything.
thinking i may jump on the samsung 51" 720P (you guys convinced me) plasma some time soon. its about $650.
This is why when you go to a show where they're using inexpensive LED instruments there's usually very little color effect on the stage. They have to turn ALL the LEDS on just to get the stage bright enough. If that's all you flexible led strip lighting led outdoor lighting fixtures mini led light bars want to accomplish, then save a fortune and buy a couple of cheap halogen work lights at Home Depot which will erase pretty much any number of fixtures using the small LEDs.
I bought my 42" Panasonic plasma from them in 2009 with White Glove service.
I bought my 32" Samsung LCD from them just last week.
I have had no issues whatsoever. With Prime, I paid $3.99 to get my TV overnight and paid no sales tax. The TVs are insured and if anything is wrong with them its simple to return.
Quite simply there's no reason not to use Amazon.
