The Toshiba 40FT1U is a 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV with built-in NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuner. Other features of the 40FT1U include 3 HDMI ports, USB port (photo viewer, musicplayer), VGA port, digital audio output, gaming mode, 24fps cinema mode with 3:2 Pulldown, REGZA Link, and Toshiba Dynalight dynamic backlight control. Best Buy's photo of the TV says LED on it. There is no mention of LED backlight in the specifications. I do not think its LED, but the TV is adjusting backlight to improve contrast.
This HDTV has some nice features that grade it up, but the 60Hz panel is of course not state of the are. A 120Hz display is making quite a difference especially when you watch action moving or sports. On the other hand we talk here about a 40-inch full HD TV for under $400. The best prices you can get a 40-inch 120Hz HDTV are around $700. iSpeaking of price, Amazon is selling the Toshiba 40FT1U for $499.99 right now. The Best Buy Black Friday deal saves $100.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
