Samsung Electronics Sells 2.6 Million LCD Televisions with LED Technology

Samsung Electronics announced it sold approximately 2.6 million units of LCD televisions which had LED or light-emitting-diode technology. That is far beyond its goal of selling about 2 million for 2009.

Samsung sells more liquid-crystal-display televisions than anyone else in the world, and is looking for its LED-based LCD TV sales to surge by almost four times in 2010 to 10 million units sold.

Assuming that happens, it would really position Samsung as the dominant provider of LCD TVs for probably years into the future.

What makes the LED TVs so popular is their extremely thin makeup, along with a much brighter screen, in contrast to the more traditional LCD TVs we're used to.

A secondary element involved in Samsung TVs is the much-hyped 3-D LED TVs, which a number of companies unveiled at the Consumer Electronics show last week, along with Samsung.

While it's being touted as a big deal, in reality there really isn't that much content available at this time to be a game changer, although several years from now that could change.

At this time the LCD TV technology which dominates the television landscape is based upon cold cathode fluorescent lamp, or CCFL, blacklight technology.

Eventually LED TV is expected to take over CCFL, and there seems to be no doubt that Samsung will be leading that charge.
