OLED And LCD, Which One Is More Cost-effective?

Apr 16, 2017

OLED is considered to be able to replace the next generation of LCD technology, so it is in many respects there are many small advantage, this is undoubtedly.

First of all, the most worthy of the advantage, of course, OLED TV is the black-bit performance. The so-called black-bit performance, in simple terms is the black of television can be how black. At this point, the ability to completely shut down each pixel OLED screen if not the winner, it is strange. Of course, some of the better LCD TVs also have regional dimming technology, but this is still not as the OLED black bit performance so delicate, is not perfect black. Even the first echelon of LCD TVs, some "halo" phenomenon is still unavoidable.

Then the black bit will definitely have to mention the contrast. The so-called contrast is the difference between the lightest and the darkest two extremes of a TV. OLED is the winner, because it can bring absolute darkness performance, but in very bright scenes also have excellent performance. For the general criterion of quality, contrast is one of the most important attributes, and it makes the impression of the picture more authentic.

Just mentioned the LCD TV backlight, which has led to the uniformity of the light in the performance of the possibility that the brightness of the screen is uneven. At this point, the side light-type backlight system is particularly evident, and even there will be marginal light leak phenomena. OLED is better at this point, but it is not perfect, especially in the early OLED TV will have some problems that appear darker in the area of the screen. In addition, the OLED screen made of surfaces can also lead to a certain extent of uneven problems.

The next OLED is a strong point of view, in fact, this is one of the disadvantages of LCD TV. OLED TV no matter from the angle of the extreme, brightness and color will not be significantly inferior, but LCD TV can not do this. Although some LCD TVs have better off-axis display techniques, the cost is relatively low in contrast.

We all know that OLED screen is one of the advantages of its lower energy consumption, because the screen in those dark places, pixels can be completely shut down, so as to achieve the most perfect power saving. Surprisingly, however, LCD TVs are often less than OLED TVs and even better in real energy consumption. First, the power consumption of LCD TVs is almost only related to the brightness of the back, making it very stable. OLED TV to do more power, unless the image content itself is the type of dark, otherwise can only minimize brightness, and OLED screen contrast performance is very sensitive to brightness, making this compromise is not cost-effective.

Of course, OLED phones and OLED TVs are different in positioning. Mobile phone life is limited, TV always has power connections and extremely heavy quality performance. So, just say the energy consumption of this piece, OLED TV is still really winning the LCD TV.

If you like big screen TV, LCD may be a better choice. LCD TVs are very rich in screen size choices, and never to 20 inches to 100 inches above can be chosen casually. Perhaps because the production requirements are higher, the supply side is less, the current OLED TV only three sizes choose--55 inches, 65 inches and 77 inches. One, 77-inch television may have to go at the level of 100,000 yuan on the price. So, as an ordinary consumer, if you want to be less than 55 inches or more than 65 inches of TV, then at least the LCD is now a choice.

Of course, as a new product, LCD TVs are certainly cheaper than OLED TVs. If possible, you can buy a high-end LCD TV in the past, you will find it will not behave badly. In addition, LCD TV in the overall brightness also has a considerable advantage, but because OLED television itself is not too bad, so this advantage can be negligible.

Although we have compared the advantages of many OLED TVs and LCD TVs, they are actually flat in many places.

For example, today's most emphasis on the resolution and HDR, in fact, OLED and LCD in these two technologies to achieve no good or inferior points. The resolution needless to say, everyone can reach the most heated up to the 4K level now. As for HDR, both TVs also have models that support the technology. Although there are subtle differences in the rendering of HDR, such as LCD can bring more bright performance, and OLED in the overall contrast better, but the overall difference is not very large.

The two are also tied in an important area, which is their support to the wide gamut. The so-called wide gamut, in simple terms, is a set of colors that have been developed, the product can cover most of the scope. In other words, such TV will be more colorful in color rendering. Theoretically, both LCD and OLED TVs support the wide gamut standard. Hard to distinguish a victory and defeat, only to say that the vast majority of OLED TV support wide gamut, and LCD TVs only part (mainly Samsung QLED products) to achieve such standards.

So, how do we choose? If you think that you have only one basic requirement for quality, the main still want to pursue low-priced, then LCD is worth considering. Of course, here is the purchase of the current LCD new products, can Amoy to the past in high-end LCD TV is also good.

However, as long as there are certain requirements for the quality of the quality, and sure enough to buy OLED TV better. Because OLED is technically more advanced, so from the cost-effective point of view, you can use the same price to get a much better rendering of the quality. Even OLED television is now relatively high price, with the gradual increase in demand, the cost is bound to fall down. Moreover, now we have seen many of the performance commendable medium-end OLED television (such as LG's OLED full lineup in the image of almost the same quality), want to pursue a better experience, or consider OLED bar.
