For a glance LCD and LED TV looks the same, but if you check their features then you will know that they have some differences.
LED TV is a new breed of television considered as an advanced version of an LCD TV. Essentially the same since both use the Liquid Crystal Display technology, their main difference lies in the source of light. While an LCD TV uses fluorescent lamps, LED TV uses Light Emitting Diodes (LED). This newly-developed backlight system is touted to provide more balance in color saturation.
In actual use, not much difference in color quality can be observed although the LED TV with colored light technology is designed to manipulate the backlight to capture an image’s colors more accurately. LCD TV’s major drawback is the loss of image detail which appears to have been resolved by LED TV as it produces better black areas by dimming backlight behind the dark areas. A recognized advantage of LED TV is the viewing angle which is comparable to Plasma TV as compared to LCD TV whose contrast ratio diminishes beyond 30” away from the center.
Another advantage is the LED TV’s faster response rate time since images do not blur in fast action video. Both screens are suitable for computer use. Economy-wise, LCD TV has the upper hand since LED TV consume more power. However, some people can rationalize the higher energy bill in exchange for better picture quality. LCD TVs are available in sizes ranging from fifteen (15) to sixty-five (65) inches while LED TVs are available from forty-six (46) to seventy (70) inches.
Simply put, a LED TV as offered in the main market today is an LCD TV that comes with a LED backlight.
