What's the Best TV Out There: LCD or OLED?

Episode 1761 (1:24:55)

Tom from Warren, OH

Tom is wondering if there's a new TV technology coming out. Leo says that there are two kinds of TVs right now, LCD/LED and OLED. LCD has different flavors, including LED, MiniLED, QLED. But the next generation is microLED, which will be like OLED, but the LEDs are really super tiny. Samsung has a 108" model for $156,000 that is more of a technology demonstrator. But we'll be seeing them more affordably on the horizon soon. 

Right now, OLED is the best picture available for low light. But in bright ambient conditions, LED/LCDs are the way to go with full-array local dimming (FALD).
