Which TV Is Right for You?
Learn about the differences in TV technology to ensure you’re making the best choice for your home entertainment.
OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TV technology represents one of the most advanced panel technologies in the market. Quite different than LCD and QLED TVs, OLED panel technology does not use backlighting systems that adds to the panel thickness. Because OLED panels feature self-illuminating individual pixels, this singular advantage is why it can produce a perfectly black screen without a hint of light bleeding. The lightning fast switching speed and the light generated at the pixel level produces a very natural looking image with outstanding off angle viewing clarity. Rich with deep colors, nearly infinite contrast, and bright color highlights that appear more natural and life-like make OLED TVs perfect for all types of content - fast action movies, games, and sports.
QLED (Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode) TVs are LCD TVs that use quantum dot film layer technology combined with a special LED backlight system designed to display a brighter picture vs. a standard LCD TV with LED backlighting. Depending on the LED backlight used, QLED TVs can be designed to be relatively slim in depth. Generally offered in larger screen sizes because they are more expensive than standard LCD TVs, QLED TVs are popular for placement in very bright rooms especially with ambient sunlight levels.
LCD TV technology has always provided bright and colorful pictures to the viewer, they are more affordable, and are available in more screen size offerings than other panel technologies. Better designed LCD models feature bezeless screens and relatively slim depth cabinets depending on the type of backlight system that illuminates the panel. More expensive LCD TVs do offer improved HDR color and peak brightness and with better off-angle viewing.
