There is a wide variety of viewing options to choose from when looking at TV’s. As we advance further into a technologically advanced reality, we are seeing the introduction of more fresh and exciting options to choose from. Narrowing down which of the many options available is the right one for you depends entirely on what you need from it. This can be a terribly difficult decision to make when you don’t really know the difference between the options available.
Two very common options in TV’s sound very similar but provide very different viewing experiences. They are OLED and LED TV’s. Let’s take a look at the differences between OLED and LED TV’s.
What is an OLED TV And How Does It Work?
Because OLED TVs lack a backlight, the images on the screen appear thinner and lighter. OLED TVs typically have a 4K resolution, resulting in sharper images with good colour and contrast.
OLED TVs are made up of single pixels that can turn on and off without the use of an LED backlight. This produces excellent contrast in the images displayed, as one area can be entirely dark blacks while another is bright whites.
The Benefits Of OLED TV’s
On top of the impressive picture quality that OLED TV’s have to offer, you can enjoy watching TV from any angle and the absence of dark spots as the colour uniformity does its job. You can also actively keep up with sport as OLED TV’s refresh at a rate that eradicates any blur of movement.
What Is An LED TV And How Does It Work?
An LED TV screen display is comprised of Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) which requires minute LED lights to illuminate the pixels for viewing.
If the screen is backlit, LED lights are present behind the screen and create a platform for the LCD to create the picture. If the screen is edge-lit, the LEDs are present around the perimeter of the screen and are generally smaller than those of backlit screens.
The Benefits Of LED Tv’s
The options available for LED TV’s are far greater than OLED TV’s. This means you have an almost sure chance of finding a quality LED TV that fits your cost, size and functionality requirements. They are also much cheaper than OLED TV’s.
Hopefully this blog has clarified the differences between OLED and LED TV’s, offering you some insightful guidance as you decide which one works better for you.
