fluorescent vs led backlight

I have been looking at a new tv (sony bravia 52"). However; I was looking to spend around $2500. Is there enough difference to justify spending the money to get either the sony 55xbr8 or the samsung 55LN950, and is there much difference in these tv's. Any help would be appreciated

Have you not considered the superior picture of plasma?

With that budget [and as long as the room allows for it] I'd recommend a plasma TV. Might be able to snag a Pioneer 5020 for that price @ retail.

I agree with the suggestion that you SERIOUSLY consider plasma at that price.

If you are set on getting LCD, then getting an LCD display with LED back lighting will get you the closest to a plasma for PQ over the standard florescent back lightin in the lower end LCD displays.
