LED TVs create images by making use of the LED lights to light up a liquid crystal display (LCD) screen whereas OLED TVs have an organic substance that can glow as the electric current is passed through it. This means that OLED TVs are capable of producing their light. OLED TVs deliver images with better contrast and those that substantially retain the black levels of the images as compared to the LED TVs (Hoffman et al. 218).
Although all the two types of TVs produce quality images, OLED is the most efficient type. OLED TV is the best since it creates a range of apparent colors and gives room for pixels to turn off when others are still running hence leading to produce more excellent contrast and retains the black color of the pictures more efficiently. The OLED TVs are also very light in weight since this technology allows for the production of very thin TVs which occupy a small space (Shih-Wen et al. 93).
OLED TVs have a small critical response time as compared to the LED ones; this, therefore, implies that the OLED TVs produce clear images that are not blurred when displaying fastest action scenes. For example, the critical response time for an LG OLED TV is less than one microsecond, and this is about 1000 times quicker than the standard LED TV (Shih-Wen et al., 95).
The OLED TVs are more expensive compared to the LED TVs. This is so because the OLED TVs are costly and difficult to manufacture compared to their LED counterparts. LG Company produces OLED TVs, and their 55 inches OLED TV is currently being sold approximately 2,000 USD.
The estimated power consumption of an LED TV annually is about 60W while that of an OLED TV is expected to be approximately 100W. This shows that OLED TVs consumes a lot of power as compared to the other TVs.
