I read an article that the LED panels last for about 40,000 hours but of course it uses less energy. Technically, it's 40,000 hours until it gets to half of its original brightness, so it could last longer.

Do the math. 40K, 60K or 100K till half brightness, not many people are going to still have their sets at those hours.
Genius has its limits, however there is no limit on stupidity.

I think the 40,000 short life span statement for LED TVs is wrong, and probably addresses LED projection instead. The life of a backlit LED LCD TV is much superior to that a normal LCD TV. From a Google search of reputable technical sources on the subject:

LED TV screen life span:
"The lifespan of an LCD television depends on the life of its backlighting bulb. These bulbs are often rated to above 60,000 hours in regular fluorescent-lit LCD panels, whereas new LED-backlit televisions have expected lifespan of over 100,000 hours."

"Dan Schinasi, Sr. Marketing Manager, Digital Projection TV for Samsung Electronics America, notes that an LED light source presents a number of benefits that directly affect the consumer’s viewing experience. Besides those points noted above, there is 'a noticeably superior life-span—the LED light source lasts for the life of TV, as opposed to 60,000 total hours.' Consumers receive an additional economic lift because they won’t have to replace a lamp after two or three years of LED use, Schinasi says."

"The LED light source helps increase the panel life two fold compared to previous CCFL panels. The light source is also environmentally friendly because it uses no Mercury."

I think the lcd it self fails before the back lighting will.
After my tv death experiance I was able to watch a technician open her up. There really is only 4 parts to the inside of the tv.

1 - The LCD
2 - The Backlighting around the LCD
3 - Motherboard
4 - The Power Board.

With the lack of active cooling for these boards and the fragile nature of the LCD I think the backlighting will be the last thing to go. This is just my opinion though.

What the hell is Schinasi talking about replacing a bulb in 2 or three years? He must be referring to DLPs. If you watched TV for 8 hours a day, every day, your LCD set would last 20.5 years! You do the math. It will be obsolete in 10 years, maybe less. I do like LEDs and that they are environmentally friendly.

LCDs are very fragile. It's more likely to be broken by your kid throwing a ball or a toy at it, creating lots of spider cracks. My neighbor lost his LCD that very way.
