When looking for a new TV, it can be confusing to see so many acronyms in their descriptions, especially when you then need to decide which one will suit you best.
We have taken a look at the main types of TV that are popular on the market today, comparing their benefits to help you determine which one you would like to bring into your home.
An LED TV uses the same technology as an older LCD TV. The main difference is that whereas an LCD unit would be lit from behind using a fluorescent bulb, an LED TV is lit by a group of light emitting diodes. This is much more efficient and means that the TV can be much narrower in size.
Unlike an LED TV, The OLED does not need any kind of backlight to illuminate the screen. It uses organic light emitting diodes, using materials such as carbon to generate light directly from an electrical current. Without the requirement of an external light source, the TV can be extremely thin and flexible, especially when compared to other units.
A QLED TV uses quantum dots to create a layer in front of the TV backlight, which is what makes the colours you see on screen. This quantum dot light emitting diode technology was invented by Samsung in 2016, aiming to create brighter colours and clearer images.
