Samsung‘s LUXIA LN55B8000 is a 55″ LCD TV that sports a LED backlight. The LED backlight is located on the edges and therefore cannot be used in conjunction with local dimming–a technology that can significantly boost contrast. The edge-lit LED backlight however makes the LN55B8000 extremely thin, just about an inch thick. LEDs also consume a bit less power compared to CCFLs.

On the performance front, the LN55B8000 features a 240Hz frequency to make sure that motion blur and juddering are things of the past. The “Ultra Clear” anti-reflective LCD reduces reflections (always a good thing) and improves contrast.

The LN55B8000 comes with a built-in Ethernet connection allowing it to make use of the Internet@TV service: Yahoo widgets that give you access to Flickr, Yahoo News, Yahoo Weather, USA Today, YouTube, Showtime, etc.
