OLED vs QLED: A Quick Buying Guide


OLED vs QLED: A Quick Buying Guide


When was the last time you upgraded your TV? If you’re like most people, you’ve had your current setup for a while, and may be considering something new. But where do you start? What’s the latest and greatest technology? What is better for watching a film, and which is better for gaming?


One of the most difficult aspects of television shopping is trying to translate all the jargon into something that makes sense. Whether it’s watching the big game with friends or the latest blockbuster with family, you want to make sure your hard-earned dollars are being wisely invested.


In the 2019 consumer television market, there are essentially two screen types for delivering the best watching experience: OLED and QLED. There are a few key differences between the two, and by exploring the basics, you will be able easily grasp the technologies behind them.


OLED is considered by some to produce the highest quality viewing experience available. To put it simply, OLED screens use self-lighting pixels. In fact, they are the only screens currently being made with self-lighting pixels, and it is cutting edge technology.


What that means for anyone watching is an extremely vivid picture, with deep blacks and unsurpassed contrast. Watching a movie on an OLED screen in a room with light control is absolutely an experience to behold.


It also allows for refresh rates that are super-fast, so sports and action movies are buttery smooth. OLED technology also allows for the thinnest screens available which make for a very high-end look and feel.

OLED technology has a few downsides, however. For starters, they may not last as long as QLED screens, if longevity is a concern of yours. They are also not ideal for bright-room viewing.


QLED on the other hand uses more traditional technology. Their pixels are not self-lighting; they use a common backlight. They do, however, look incredible. QLED uses some innovative technology of its own to produce incredibly vivid fully saturated colours and a gorgeous picture quality. It’s great if you are typically watching in a brightly lit room, as it will give you a much brighter image than the OLED screen.
