OLED, LED and QLED screens explained

TVs come in different shapes ,sizes and packing many features in them. In most cases we hear many terms when it comes to the type of screen they have. In this article, I will break down the 3 most popular screens types so you won’t have a hard time making a decision when you’re buying one.

1. OLED Screens

Oled Screens are the most expensive ones in this comparison and they pack the most advanced technology here. These screens utilise Organic Liquid Crystal Display Technology. In this technology, each pixel emits light in response to an electric current. Individual pixels can also be shut off completely. This means that you have deep blacks hence images produced have high contrast and they are realistic.

There is no need for backlight so such TV sets have narrower bezels and are thin. They also provide better viewing angles. On the downside, OLED TVs are not very bright which they compensate beautifully with clearer picture. The cost of production is high hence they are produced from 55 inches and above so you really ought to have a deep pocket.

2. LED Screens

In this comparison, these are the most affordable. They utilise TFT LCD panels with LED backlight. Blacks are never truly black as one panel lights up the whole screen. You literally have to dim the whole panel and this is not efficient. LED is cheap to manufucture so TVs exist from as little as 18 inches and range up to 85 inches.

3. QLED Screens

These type utilises LED technology but with a quantum dot filter between the LED backlight and LCD layer. This produces better colors than the LED. They are also brighter than most LEDS and OLEDS. Blacks are not deeper and contrast levels are low. Their price is average and they produce sizes 43 inches upward.

In the future, microLED and miniLED are looking to rival with OLED technology. They may be cheaper than OLED but let’s just be patient. Who knows what the future holds?
