LED vs. LCD TVs

Evaluate the features of LED TVs and LCD TVs before buying,

LED TV is energy efficient and uses top-notch technology.

LCD TV has limited viewing angles and may be bulky.

LED: Light-emitting diode or LED is a semiconductor that emits light each time an electric current is passed through it.

LCDliquid crystal display is a technology that blocks light rather than emitting it.

LED TV vs. LCD TV

While the main LED and LCD difference lies in the technology the TV uses to project visuals on screen, each of the two technologies responds to projections and video in a different way.

Backlight

Backlight is an important difference between LCD and LED TVs. An LED TV backlight comes in two ways: edge lighting and full array lighting. Unlike an LCD TV that uses CCFL for backlight, most LED TVs use ‘light guides’ to project pictures on the screen.

Brightness

When comparing LCD vs LED on the parameter of brightness, an LED TV stands out as a winner. This is because it appoints an individual dimming and backlighting system, which in comparison to LCD, makes your projections more defined, authentic, and closer to reality.

Contrast and color

LED TVs have superior black levels and employ dynamic contrast mechanisms as compared to LCDs. Colour precision is also more defined in case of LED TV.

Viewing Angles

LCDs project clear pictures for up to 165 degrees, but projections tend to distort beyond this point. However, LED TVs are equipped to offer you better clarity at all viewing angles.

Energy Efficiency

LED TVs are more energy-efficient as these models use light-emitting diodes (LED) for backlighting. These TVs consume less power as compared to cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL), which most LCD TVs use. This results in power savings of up to 30%.

Ultra HD and 4K
The resolution of Ultra HD is exactly four times higher than full HD – 3840 x 2160. It means a far more detailed picture, with content requiring a lot more bandwidth and storage space. 4K TVs tend to be good at upscaling HD video to Ultra HD but there are currently very few options for watching native 4K content.
