OLED TV vs. LED TVs

LED Vs. OLED: OLED offers much blacker blacks than traditional LED TVs, as each pixel can be completely turned off. LED TVs traditionally have a backlight that can bleed through and show light blooming. Full array backlights try to improve on this, but will never achieve the blacks of OLED. OLED also gives excellent viewing angles without loss of contrast, another big advantage. Currently OLED TVs are more expensive, but prices have been falling over the last couple of years. LED TVs are traditionally brighter, so may be better in brighter rooms. Also see our Samsung Q60, Q70, Q80 and Q90 Series QLED 2019 TVs, which are top 4K LED TVs.


Glossary of Terms
OLED Screen Technology = LG is the leader in OLED TVs, and with Sony only one of two manufacturers of OLED TVs. OLED TVs use emissive technology (no back light), that have very fast refresh rates. They give the best quality picture, colors, and contrast levels of all the screen technologies available All of LG’s OLED lineup is 4K Ultra HD. Without a backlight, no blooming or bleeding of light.
HDR & Dolby Vision = LG OLED TVs for 2019 have High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology and Dolby Vision. These technologies allow a picture with a much wider range from bright to dark, more vivid colors and shadow details. This is a major upgrade in picture quality aside from resolution. The new 4k Bluray discs and future streaming and cable content will be tailored for HDR to take advantage of this technology.
Image Processors = While most people look at the screen technology, the image processor is very important for picture quality, especially for upscaling lower resolution video. The more powerful chip, the better the picture. LG for instance has an Alpha 7 chip, and the newer Alpha 9 version 2 chip. There is a sizable difference in picture quality with the Alpha 9 vs. Alpha 7 chip. The C9, E9, and W9 2019 LG OLED Tvs all have the latest Alpha 9 (Generation 2) chip. Processing gets better and better with each year.
Alpha 9 Gen 2 processor = The latest and most powerful processor for LG is available in the C9, E9, and W9 models, and improves image processing and interpolation.
LG B9 Series OLED = LG’s entry level OLED, available in OLED55B9 (55-inch), OLED65B9 (65-inch), and OLED77B9 (77-inch). This model has older Alpha 7 gen 2 chip, no soundbar, and traditional display instead of the picture on glass design.
LG C9 Series OLED = LG’s mid entry level OLED, available in OLED55C9 (55-inch), OLED65C9 (65-inch), and OLED77C9 (77-inch).

HEVC (H.265) codec = HEVC (H.265) is a new compression codec that is used to compress video. This new codec compresses twice as much data as previous codecs, so that 4K Ultra HD video can be sent over cable and the internet.
