Even though they're a little late to the party, we're glad to hear that LG Philips will be rolling out its first LED backlit TV next quarter. The 47-inch display will have a progressive 1,920 x 1,080 resolution and because it's LED-based, it'll have an abnormally high dynamic contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. There's still no word on pricing, though we'd rather wait to find out than have another price goof.

Well considering that CRT TV's contrast ratio is unlimited nothing is seemingly overkill. However, i think with these LED panels, they should offer the good enough CR because I think each diode can be turned off to give that true black look, and also LED's can get pretty brite(I don't know if it gets as brite as plasma or CRT phosphors but if they do, then expect the CR to be good enough). Take what I say with a grain of salt though, because I'm not an expert.
