Discover the new OLED and QLED Technologies
Over the years, televisions are acquiring improvements in terms of performance and features, thus increasing their audiovisual quality for the enjoyment of moviegoers. The newest technologies that reach the market for televisions, both OLED and QLED technology, are sweeping in their wake, due to the great improvement they offer compared to the previous ones existing to date. In this sense, depending on our needs, we will choose one or the other, but to find out which one is more convenient, here we discover the benefits of each one.
LG and Samsung televisions take the cake
The giants in the market, such as Samsung or LG televisions, are the ones that are betting the most and advancing with OLED and QLED technologies . If we seek to get the most out of these new audiovisual technologies, the high ranges of these two leading brands are the most recommended for the benefits they offer to their customers.
In times of confinement, sales have increased considerably due to the high number of hours we dedicate to television entertainment. The wide range offered by some companies in terms of content, both in series and in movies, increases the number of people in front of the screens.
OLED (organic light-emitting diode) and QLED (Quantum dot light emitting diode) technology offer different characteristics , although their acronyms and pronunciation lead us astray. Let’s find out their advantages and disadvantages among them.
Advantages of QLED technology over OLED
- Less saturation and more color volume . QLED TVs have the ability to deliver 100% color volume, allowing you to view a greater variety of colors. In addition to this, the amount of light that enters each pixel can be controlled, and therefore, its saturation can also be controlled in a more optimal way.
- Higher brightness level . QLED technology has more brightness than OLED TVs . Samsung, the brand that bets on QLED, ensures that this technology promises images with more lighting, perfect for when sunlight hits the television screen directly, or to better observe the dark images of American horror movies, which are usually remarkably opaque.
- Greater durability . OLED TVs, being made from organic materials, are more prone to image degradation and retention.
- Cheaper technology . Over time, technology tends to degrade its value, being more suitable for the humblest pockets. Even so, OLED televisions are still expensive due to their complex evaporation system, mainly. High-end QLED TVs can currently be found for under €1,200.
Disadvantages of QLED compared to OLED technology
- The darkest levels are not picked up by QLED . OLED televisions do not need any external light source, so they have the ability to achieve the purest black color. On the contrary, QLED, by needing that external lighting, cannot reach the most opaque levels.
- The response time is lower in OLEDs . The response speed of the OLEDs is 0.1 ms, while the QLEDs range between 0.2 and 0.8 ms. As for input lag, OLEDs continue to reign, and this is where professional gamers find the big differences between the two technologies.
- Finest design . OLEDs, by not having an external light source, can afford to design thinner televisions, ideal for small spaces, these being the thinnest in the television market.
- Viewing angles. Thanks to the superior viewing angles of OLEDs, they can be seen better than those of the other technology.
The use we give our televisions will determine if we opt for one or the other
Here lies the key to our choice. Both technologies have their weaknesses and strengths, so being clear about the use we want to give our television is presupposed as an aspect of vital importance to get it right and thus get the most out of these new technologies.
