OLED and QLED TVs - What's your best decision?

April 01st, 2018

OLED and QLED Television sets dominate the current market, and there are many differences between these different technologies. Which is the best? Which type will better suit your needs and requirements? Please read on to find out more. 

OLED

OLED TVs are often praised as the next big thing in terms of television tech. Industry experts love them, critics rave about them and consumers seem to happily embrace the trend and choose to buy these models for their homes.

The acronym means short for Organic Light Emitting Diode. This technology works when electricity responds to organic compounds featured in the OLEDs, allowing them to emit light, which is then turned into colors and images in our televisions.

QLED 

QLED televisions are relatively innovative, as they haven’t been available for a long time. The moniker stands for Quantum Light Emitting Diode, signifying a step forward in terms of performance and flexibility. As the name might suggest, this technology uses quantum dots as a way to enhance picture quality, improve brightness levels and better black/dark tones.

Pros and Cons

QLED systems need a backlight system, as well as an LCD panel to run correctly, so they generally will be a bit thicker. Oppositely, OLED TVs are thinner, since the technology requests fewer components to be optimized. On the upside, QLED can reportedly reproduce color, brightness and black level more accurately than OLED, improving picture quality significantly. Long story short, we are talking about a compromise between image quality and flexibility. QLED televisions can indeed reproduce images more faithfully, while OLED features a tried-and-true technology, which gives more flexibility and adaptability to users looking for thinner screens and items that aren't as bulky. If color quality is your primary concern, go for QLED. If space and features are what you are after, OLED is the way to go.
