Samsung 40 Inch OLED TV

Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) displays will put the last nail in the coffin of LCD TVs.

OLED is a series of thin organic film between two conductors which which emit light when electricity passing across them. The main advantage of OLED is it produce light itself and no need of back lighting as in the case of LCD and TFT panels. Moreover these displays are more brighter, efficient , thinner and having good contrast ratio than LCDs. The prototype of big screen had been developed by many leading consumer electronics market players like Sony and Samsung but the main challenge of the technology transfer was the limited life of OLEDs, since these are made of organic materials. However the technological advancement

Comparison OLED and LCD displays

Advantages over LCD displays:

  • Better contrast ratio
  • Large viewing angle ( Viewing angle does not affect the quality, hue and brightness
  • No need of back light hence power consumption is very low.
  • Much thinner than LCDs and can be made flexible also.
  • Very fast response time ie for LCDs approximately at the range of 2 ms and in case of OLED it is 0.01 ms) Expensive manufacturing process


  • Poor life time
  • Water and humidity can damage the display hence effective sealing is required.

Efforts are on to increase the life of OLED displays and new methods are being  developed to reduce the production cost. Now LCD almost invaded the CRT market and  the manufactures putting their maximum efforts to make it popular. An immediate shift to OLED may not be there because of the said disadvantages but if the technological advancement goes in the current pace then it will not take much more time. Remember the story of DVDs. How fast DVDs penetrated the market and invaded.

  • After I did a lot of research on LED tv’s. Samsung by far is the best LED tv out there right now. And one big bonus is that LED sets use far less power than other flat panels.

  • Had the Samsung LED Tv for about 3 weeks. Picture is fantastic in HD. DVD is excellent and Blu-Ray is amazing. Hooked it up with a Samsung Blu-Ray player, the pair works in tandem. Set up is a piece of cake.

  • Everything is ok… what about the cost of this????

  • LED Tv’s are more expensive than traditional LCD TVs which are having some massive price drops.’.’

  • i just wish that LCD TVs would have more contrast and brighter colors like CRTs:;”

  • LCD TV’s are better than you think, I have a 52″ Sony one of the new models and I reckon mine beats an old CRT hands down even on standard definition, I agree OLED is probably the future but while the prices remain so high the LCD TV is certainly still alive and kicking.

  • LCD TVs are lightweight but i do not like its low contrast and muted colors’:*

  • With the fast trends in technology, we, the consumers benefits the most since we are provided with the better gadgets for better customer experience. LCD’s will be a thing in the past just like the CRT’s which ruled the world for decades.
