Are LED backlight monitors always quiet?

are LED backlight monitors always quiet compared to TTL backlight monitors?

Please keep this thread updated. Very usefull.
No noise when adjusting brightness has become my first buying selection
What about the Lenovo L2440P? Anyone has one in use?

I found that the LG W2442PA-BF is noisy <95% brightness.

If you get a Aria with onboard stuff (so no real gaming) for say Office, Internet and HTPC the Aria IS silent. Silent I mean: not audable at 1 o'clock at night without ear on the case. First time my wife used her new Aria HTPC she turned it off thinking it was not allready turned on. (you see the bl...

I've cut out the "fangrills" completely and only replaced the back one with a separate grill. And yeah replaced the leds with blue ones. Complies nicely with the Antec Ari...

It's a bit better now with DVD player and DVD/RW in. Still the annoying low deep hum (like the ritme of someone breathing). It's not from the sidepannels or frontpanel. Had them off and it's still there. Will investigate later. The hum makes it 4 to 5 times as loud!! :x The NB gets pretty hot. Almos...
