No it doesn't. It is exactly the same principle as any other edge LED. HX850 has 8 overall dimming zones - hardly "local dimming".
I'm glad that you like your Sony HX850. It is a good TV but "local dimming" is only available on HX920 - and other backlit LED models.
Thank you for the review.
While i have not seen this tv, i am sorry but i have to disagree with you.
I get what you are saying, most led lcds even if they do not mention local dimming, dim the light output on a blank screen making a black level measurement pointless for that reason.
The Sony 46HX823 had 'local dimming' and it made a difference, yes certain scenes it wasn't as effective as a full led backlit set but it did help.
It made Edge bleed disappear to the naked eye and the slight clouding that my set had go. It also improved black levels even on content with dark and bright content, i don't know how, as you say it is lit from the edges, but it made blacks appear deeper.
Maybe on a meter they would measure the same but if the results are pleasing to the general public me included, then that is great.
So i don't see the point in constantly arguing about it, maybe with test patterns in a dark room it doesn't make a difference, but with general content it does.
