    Yes. Just as is the Thunderbolt Display.

    From the Thunderbolt display's description: "LED backlighting. Bright on. Full brightness with no waiting. That’s the big advantage of LED backlight technology. Unlike most displays that take time to warm up before they reach maximum brightness, an LED-backlit display is instantly on and uniformly bright. LED backlighting also gives you greater control over screen brightness."

    I am almost certain that the Thunderbolt Display and the Apple LED Cinema Displays are identical apart from connectivity and associated ports (Thunderbolt instead of Mini Display Port), and other ports :

    Thunderbolt Peripheral connections
    ✵ Three powered USB 2.0 ports
    ✵ FireWire 800 port
    ✵ Gigabit Ethernet Port
    ✵ Kensington security slot.

    Apple LED Cinema Display
    ✵ Three powered USB 2.0 ports
    ✵ Kensington security slot

    The Display itself, in both cases, share the same Technical Specs:
    ✵ Screen size: 27 inches (diagonal viewable)
    ✵ Screen type: TFT active-matrix LCD with in-plane switching (IPS)
    ✵ Resolution: 2560 by 1440 pixels
    ✵ Colors: 16.7 million
    ✵ Aspect ratio: 16:9
    ✵ Viewing angle: 178° horizontal; 178° vertical
    ✵ Brightness: 375 cd/m2
    ✵ Contrast ratio: 1000:1
    ✵ Response time: 12 ms

    Additionally, both displays are identical in their physical measurements (Height, Width, depth, and weight).
