QLED vs OLED vs LED

The Super Bowl is right around the corner and that is a time when many Americans buy new TVs. Right now there are three competing technologies (QLED, OLED, and LED) readily available for purchase. With the help of RTINGS.com we try to help you make an informed decision.

 

How do these technologies rate on 8 factors important to someone buying a TV.

 

Black Level - Deep black will make colors look more accurate and vibrant  

Motion Blur - Mostly an issue for video gaming or fast action sports. It manifests itself as a blur on the screen

Viewing Angle - Measures how true the image remains when you view off angle. The farther off center the more the degradation.

Color Volume - A measure of the ability to express all the colors that can physically be displayed (aka: the color gamut), at any given luminosity, up to the display's peak brightness.

Gray Uniformity - Describes how well a TV is able to maintain a single, uniform color on the screen.

Luminosity - Essentially brightness

Image Retention - Burn In

Price and Availability - Self Explanatory

I think one of your listener emails from show 879 was asking about exactly this type of TV, now on sale for $200.00.
