Since old-fashioned CRT televisions made way for flat-screen panels,
The type of screen has been almost as important as the brand of TV itself.
The earliest flat-screen TVs had plasma or CCFL-backlit LCD panels,
But both of these technologies are no longer in use commercially.
Today we have three popular types of screens OLED, QLED, and LED and most commercially available televisions have one of these types of screens.
We’ll compare these three types of screens and outline their advantages and disadvantages.
This will help you decide which type of TV is best for you.
LETS START :
Modern and easily available television screen types, OLED is BEST.
With Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) technology,
Every pixel is capable of emitting its own light in response to an electric current.
Individual pixels can also be shut off completely.
OLED TVs are capable of deep blacks, high levels of contrast, and realistic colours.
Since there’s no need for a backlight,
OLED TVs are thinner and have narrower bezels than those that use other TV screen technologies.
Individual pixel can be switch off as needed, black levels are excellent, and backlight blooming is a non-issue.
You also get better viewing angles on OLED TVs.
One big drawback is that these TVs can’t get quite as bright as a QLED or LED TV,
HDR content naturally doesn’t achieve the peak brightness it’s capable of on other types of TVs.
OLED televisions more than make up for their lower brightness with better picture quality on the whole.
Also, all of this comes at a price; OLED TVs are among the most expensive in the market today.
This also has to do with the fact that it only makes business sense to manufacture OLED TVs at screen sizes of 55 inches and above.
You should consider an OLED TV if you have a high budget and want the best possible picture quality.
Affordable flat-screen television for your home today, there’s a good chance that your entire shortlist is filled with LED options.
More accurately referred to as LED-backlit LCD technology,
These televisions typically use TFT-LCD panels with LED backlighting, offering better brightness and colours than early CCFL-backlit panels.
The need for a backlight that’s always on means that blacks are never truly black.
There are two major types –
- IPS (In Plane Switching)
- VA (Vertical Alignment).
Each type has its own advantages and drawbacks.
IPS offers better viewing angles, while VA has better contrast levels and works better in dark rooms.
Some televisions do offer local dimming, which means that portions of the screen can be made darker to enhance blacks.
Most LED TVs have a single backlight powering the entire LCD panel,
And therefore aren’t capable of rendering the deep blacks you can see on OLED TVs.
Since this type of TV screen uses technology that has been around for a while now,
It’s the most affordable to manufacture and is economical at all sizes and resolutions.
You can easily get an LED TV size at anywhere between 24 inches and 85 inches, and even beyond that.
You can also usually get higher peak brightness on a good LED TV.
LED TVs are best consider if you’re on a tight budget,
But might also make sense if you want lot of features without stretching to the price levels of QLED or OLED.
The QLED is middle-ground between LED and OLED screens,
QLED is closer to LED when it comes to the actual technology and hardware involve.
QLED TVs are essentially LED TVs but with a quantum-dot filter between the LED backlight and LCD layer,
Which helps produce better colours.
In QLED TVs have better colours and brightness than LED and most OLED TVs,
But stop short of the contrast levels and deep blacks that OLED TVs offer.
The higher cost of manufacturing QLED panels means that they aren’t usually use in smaller TVs,
With 43 inches being the starting point for this type of screen.
QLED televisions offer better colours at slightly higher prices than most LED TVs,
But aren’t quite as good on the whole as OLED TVs.
MicroLED and Mini-LED | Future of TV
Although the three types described above are the present of consumer televisions,
The future will see new types of screen technology such as microLED and mini-LED.
These are meant to rival OLED, but with the typical efficiency and cost benefits of LED-base technologies.
These are still some time away, and may be relatively expensive to start with or limited to just a handful of manufacturers and brands.
- OLED offers the best performance,
- LED is the most affordable,
- QLED sits somewhere in between.
