Deciding on which TV to buy is not particularly easy. While both technologies deliver fantastic results that should please most people, it is wise to choose a device that fits individual needs and cuts a fine figure under your living conditions.
Generally, if you have a darker living space, or can darken your room, you should go for an OLED TV. An OLED’s dark room performance, particularly in terms of black level, uniformity and contrast ratio, is yet to be matched by LCDLCD = Liquid Crystal Display – a type of screen using liquid crystals for creating the image TVs. Additionally, they have a very wide viewing angle, so watching TV at an angle or with many people watching from multiple directions is no problem at all. While it should be noted that OLEDs are prone to suffer burn-in, modern technologies prevent this almost entirely. They are great choices for gaming, movies, TV shows, sports, and HDRHigh Dynamic Range – image/video with more dynamic range (contrast range) content alike.
On the other hand, QLEDs are slightly better all-rounders. They are sufficiently bright for very well lit rooms and can still display gleaming highlights under very bright conditions. At the same time, they deliver fantastic dark room performance, but the black level and uniformity does not quite reach the performance of OLED panels. A disadvantage, however, is their limited viewing angle. Higher quality QLEDs have an additional screen on top of the panel that widens the viewing angle to counteract this problem. Consequently, such a TV will forfeit in contrast ratio. Still, QLEDs are also a great choice for movies, TV shows, sports, and HDR. If you have mixed feelings about Burn-In, you can comfortably go for a QLED TV. Rest assured you will a great time with both technologies.
