For years now, those looking to purchase a new TV for their home have been forced to choose between LED and plasma TVs. But with plasma TVs recently bowing out of the equation, most of the TVs on the market today fall into the LED category. There is one exception, though—the OLED TVs that just started shipping to customers a few years ago.
Organic Light Emitting Diode TVs, better known as OLED TVs, might sound like they’re similar to LED TVs. But the truth is that they couldn’t be any more different. Rather than being illuminated by an LED backlight like LCD TVs, all of the pixels used within OLED TVs illuminate themselves, which usually results in a better picture for those watching them.
LED TVs do typically win out when it comes to brightness, even though both LEDs and OLEDs are plenty bright no matter how light or dark a room might be. However, OLED TVs have proven to be far superior in many other areas. For example, the black level of an OLED TV is better overall than that of an LED TV. OLED also beats LED is categories like contrast ratio, viewing angle, and uniformity. And while you could call several categories, like resolution and refresh rate, a tie, OLED is clearly presenting LED with the most competition it’s received over the last decade. It shouldn’t be long before OLED TVs become a staple in many American households.
