Almost everything in our lives gets upgraded. And so is the case with our televisions. While a lot of us still use standard high definition TV sets, there would certainly come a time when we decide to switch to a 4K TV. But, before we make that switch, it would be essential for us to know whether to buy an LED, an OLED, or a QLED.

Yes, we bet you’re thinking that all of these sound the same. But, we assure you, they are not!

So, before we go looking for a TV sale where we may get our hands on a good 4K TV, let’s get down to understanding the difference between the three types.


The LED TV comes with ‘light emitting diodes’ behind liquid crystals in the display screen. As compared to the LCD, the LED TV is slimmer, lighter, has a brighter screen, more vibrant colors, consumes lesser electricity, and is extremely easy to mount on a wall due to its lightweight. These are the least expensive in comparison to OLEDs and QLEDs. The TV sales of LEDs start from about USD 429 for a 55-inch model. However, if you search well, you could even get your hands on lower and best TV deals in the market for this model. The best time to check would be during the discount season or during Black Friday.


The acronym for Organic Light Emitting Diodes, an OLED TV is a more eco-friendly version of the LED TV and has carbon-based materials in it that light up when subjected to electricity. An OLED has no backlight source as each pixel is its own source of light, thus making the TV wafer thin (just about a few millimeters). As compared to an LED TV, OLED TVs offer excellent contrast and stunning brightness and use a minuscule amount of electricity. The OLED TV sales start from about USD 2,000 for a 55-inch model.


Also known as the Quantum Dot TV, the QLED TV is powered by Quantum Dot Technology, where each dot is a nanocrystal (almost one billionth of a meter). The QLED TV makes for whiter whites, darker blacks, and brighter colors. TV sales of the QLED start from about USD 1,300 for a 55-inch model.

So, which one are you going for?
