      OLED vs QLED: Which TV Display Technology Should You Get?

      If you're looking for a new TV, you've probably come across terms like OLED and QLED – two of the most popular display technologies which offer different benefits depending on your needs.

      In this article, we'll break down these technologies for you to understand the differences better so that you can make an informed decision.

        First, let's define the terms. OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode, while QLED stands for Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode.

        Both technologies use LEDs to create an image, but they differ in how they do it.

        What is OLED TV?

        OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) is a display technology that uses organic compounds to create images on the screen. Each pixel in an OLED screen emits its own light, allowing for deeper blacks, vibrant colours, and excellent contrast. 

        Because OLED pixels can turn on and off independently, they also offer excellent contrast and fast response times.

        OLED screens have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their impressive picture quality, and they're a great choice for movie and TV enthusiasts who want the best possible viewing experience.

        PRISM+ OLED TVs have a wide colour gamut that allows for excellent picture quality.

        OLED screens are also known for their slim profiles, making them a popular choice for wall-mounted installations.

        You can enjoy this viewing experience with the PRISM+ Alpha Series in both a 55 inch TV and a 65 inch TV

        Pros & Cons of OLED 

        Pros Cons

        Perfect blacks
        OLED pixels can turn completely off, resulting in true blacks that are impossible to achieve with other display technologies.

        Wide viewing angles
        OLED TVs have excellent viewing angles, meaning that you can enjoy a clear picture from almost any position in the room.

        Vibrant colours
        OLED displays are capable of producing incredibly rich and vivid colours, making images and videos pop.

        Infinite Contrast Ratio
        OLED display offers a contrast ratio of 1:1.5 million.

        Risk of burn-in
        OLED pixels can suffer from burn-in if static images are displayed for too long, such as channel logos or video game HUDs.

        Potential for image retention
        Similar to burn-in, OLED pixels can retain an image after it has been displayed for an extended period.

        OLED TVs tend to be more expensive than other display technologies due to the manufacturing process and limited supply.

        What is QLED TV?

        On the other hand, QLED TVs is a newer technology that uses a layer of quantum dots to enhance the light produced by the LEDs.

        QLED screens use a backlight to illuminate the pixels, and the quantum dots help to produce more accurate colours and brightness levels. This results in brighter images with more saturated colours. 

        PRISM+ QLED TVs have excellent picture quality compared to regular TVs

        This makes the PRISM+ QLED Ultra Series TVs a great choice for bright rooms, as they can overcome ambient light to produce a clear and vivid image. 

        If you are placing it in your living room where it tends to be brighter, you can even get the PRISM+ Q75 Ultra to get the maximum viewing experience. 

        Pros & Cons of QLED 

        Pros Cons

        QLED displays are capable of producing brighter images than OLED displays, which can make them better suited for rooms with a lot of natural light.

        No risk of burn-in
        Unlike OLED displays, QLED displays are not susceptible to burn-in.

        QLED TVs tend to be more affordable than OLED TVs.

        QLED TV models are offering up to 100,000 hours of use before the screen begins to downgrade.

        Limited viewing angles
        QLED displays tend to have narrower viewing angles than OLED displays, meaning that the picture may appear distorted or washed out if viewed from an angle.

        Less contrast
        While QLED displays can produce deep blacks, they are not as true as OLED blacks due to the backlighting used in the display.

        Less vibrant colours
        While QLED displays are capable of producing a wide range of colours, they may not be as vibrant as OLED displays.

        QLED vs OLED: Which is Better?

        So, which one is better? It really depends on what you prioritise in a TV.

        You can find below, a summary table for you to make a better decision.
