Sharp have gone a step further than their rivals Samsung in the current race to produce the perfect picture on an LED lit LCD television. Whereas Samsung have opted for edge- lit LED panels Sharps latest Aquos LE600E range feature Full Back-lit technology.
Full Backlit LED panels differ from Egde-lit in that the whole of the panel is filled with rows of light emitting diodes or LEDs that illuminate the panel from the rear resulting in better quality bright or dark portions of a scene.

Unfortunately Full Backlighting LED TVs such as the Sharp range are not as thin as there Edge Lit counterparts. Whereas the latest Samsung LED televisions are an ultra thin 1.2 inches the Sharp LE600E range of sets are about 3.5 inches deep.
Considering that even the latest LCD tvs manage about 4 inches in depth this should not represent a problem unless you are looking for a wall mounted solution that has to be as flush to the wall as possible.
