Does anybody know of any full-hd desktop monitor that has direct-lit backlighting?

Apparently panel manufacturers don't inform the type of backlighting used in their products, which is huge in terms of picture quality.

Thanks!

None of the specs manufacturers give are useful when comparing picture quality other than res and size. As always, pro in depth reviews are the only way to find out actual response times, contrast, color gamut, uniformity, etc, etc. Rtings has a list of the monitors they've reviewed and you can click to sort by backlight. Be aware they separate direct and full array which you'd want to look at both, not to mention looking at their review to compare other aspects. https://www.rtings.com/monitor/tests/picture-quality/local-dimming

Thank you! I didn't know Rtings had an option to sort by backlight, that is very useful!

Unfortunately, I could not find the exact model I want on Rtings site. It's a budget desktop monitor, the Lenovo S22e-18/19.

Does anybody have the Lenovo S22e-18/19 to report any backlight bleeding? Also if it's direct or edge-lit?
