LCD TV and LED TV – A comparison

You may have come across terms like LED TV and LCD TV and you may have even considered purchasing one of these new types of TVs. Though there is not much of a difference between these models; marketers use this disparity as the USP and advertise in different ways. If you want to know more about the differences, then read on.

Back lighting

Back lighting for LCD TVs is supplied by fluorescent tubes of lighting. For LED TVs, LEDs are used to supply the back lighting. LED TVs come with two main types of back lighting – local dimming and edge lighting. Local dimming has a cluster of LED lights in the back panel and these clusters can be monitored to increase or decrease the amount of back lighting. Edge lighting has LED lights at the edges of the TV panel.

Picture quality

LCD TVs obstruct the back lighting passing through the TV panel to create dark tones. However, this method of creating black has been found faulty.

LED TV has a solution to this problem. The local dimming feature dims the backlight area in places where the screen is supposed to be dark or black.

LCD TVs cannot control their back lights as local dimming TVs do. On the other hand, edge lighting LED TVs can control back lights and have brighter whites than LCD TV that are fluorescent lit. Computer usage Both LCD TVs and LED TVs are designed to be resistant to screen burn-in and thus they are appropriate for computer use.

TV wall brackets

Be it the LCD TV or the LED TV, both require TV wall brackets for supporting reasons. TV wall brackets are designed to mount to a range of televisions. TV wall brackets come in different types like flat TV wall brackets, tilt TV wall brackets, swivel TV wall brackets and so on.
