In September we can expect a 40-inch LCD TV from Samsung that features an LED backlight:
The 40-inch LED TV targets the European market with a price tag of US$3,000, noted the report, which added that the new TV will source panels from S-LCD, a joint venture between Samsung Electronics and Sony.

The release of the LCD TV with LED backlighting is mainly to strengthen Samsung's brand image, the report indicated.

Would be nice if there were a couple models of the pc monitors with LED backlights too. I read the 24" was going to be super expensive though, which for a $500 increase in backlight cost doesn't seem to make reasonable sense.

Imagine a 24 and 30 lcd monitor with a LED based backlight and color gamut. Oh my.
