A Tale of Two Displays "Our fine friends at Macrumors sent us a special little something in the mail the other day – the same purported iPad 3 screen with which they confirmed the existence of a “Retina” display! Since they had no means of hooking up the LCD to an iPad 2, we investigated the issue a bit further and saw if we could get their LCD running on the current-gen iPad." via iFixit

LED-Backlit Units Made Up 52% Of LCD TV Shipments In Q4’11 "The penetration ratio of LED backlighting on LCD televisions has increased significantly over the past couple of years, having increased from just 4 percent in January 2010 to 32 percent in January 2011, and then to 54 percent in December 2011. Over the course of last year, the overall number of LED LCD TVs shipped came in at 89.7 million units, contributing to an estimated 44 percent of LCD TV shipment." via HDTVtest

Some LCD panel prices trending up, says AUO executive "Panels that have received price hikes include 24-inch monitor and TV panels, and 40- and 42-inch TV panels, Peng indicated, but added that downward pressure on prices of 32-inch TV panels is mounting due to capacity ramps by China-based makers." via DigiTimesDisplays

Samsung Settles Lawsuit, Will Repair Certain TV Models "Samsung Electronics America (SEA) issued a notice Thursday that it has agreed to offer free repairs to Oklahoma residents who purchased certain LCD, Plasma, and DLP TVs from the company that have malfunctioned due to capacitor issues." via PCMAG
