"LED-backlit LCDs were probably less expensive to make from the very start of their mass-production"

That is probably over stating the situation, but today the cross over point has more or less arrived for the sweet spot around 20" to 23". Today it seems CC tubes are finally going away for the commodity market.

For the higher end at the 24" to 30" panels the price difference is way more marked, perhaps the engineering is still tougher for large area edge lighting, and you also get into TN vs IPS issues and color gamut and professional use issues.
