That's exactly the point I was trying to make. All LED need diffusers.
The C8000 has local dimming, or as they call it, precision dimming. The leds on both are edge led and both have diffusers that suffer from the same problem. To achieve real black you're getting halos and banding, with dimming on. The LG has the advantage of scanning light, and that's it.
The nomenclature is what differs and i can't see why. Most informed people already see edge-led as connotative to clouding issues, which is why Samsung added local dimming, although they didn't market it as backlit. I might be a stickler for wording, but it doesn't seem fare.
I just think this makes people jump to assumptions based on their knowledge of last years models, between these two models, if they don't read the entire review. Like a lot of people who think just because the 9705 has a 0.5ms (BEW) panel, it can't/won't suffer from motion issues, like most lcds with 4-5ms times.
