LED and OLED – What’s the Difference?

OLED is a newer and better technology than LED – simply put.

It’s easy to imagine that OLED TVs are in general more expensive than LED ones. The price difference is reflected in better contrast and brightness, and in general, a more defined and vivid TV experience.

When you ask PAN what is the best TV for your personal settings, the answer will always be the best we could find that matches your available budget.

There is no need to chose between LED and OLED, simply go with OLED if possible.

If you want to learn more about these 2 technologies in detail, or to see live examples of what exactly can look better on an OLED TV, you can find plenty of examples online, and advanced scientific descriptions of the two technologies, but we are not going to bore you with the specifics because PAN’s goal is to save you time, not rob you of it.

OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode, and as the name reveals it’s an evolution of a technology that has been on the market for a long time, based on electroluminescence.

We don’t ask you whether you prefer LED, OLED, Plasma or any other kind of technology because we simply provide you with our best suggestion that matches your criteria.

We highly recommend you go with OLED technology if you are someone who spends a lot of time watching TV or you are someone whose eyes are somewhat sensitive, for example if you need glasses to watch TV for longer periods of time. This may not be important to you if this isn’t going to be your primary TV or you usually have it on as ambient sound and light.

Hopefully this gave you a brief understanding of the importance and difference between LED and OLED TV technology.
