The modern era has shown a tremendous switch from LCD to LED display. The innovative introduction of LED screens in the television market, at best quality and decent pricing has taken the market by storm. Many individuals are switching from LCD to LED screens. The reason for the switch lies in the innumerable benefits Led has to offer to its clients. Here at Dynamo LED, we offer both LED and LCD, and we appreciate the benefits of both technologies.
LCD vs LED Technology
An LED displayuses light-emitting diodes, whereas the LCD(liquid crystal display) uses CCFL’s, which is more power-consuming than LED. The CCFL dissipates more light than the LED, and hence they even tend to make the television warmer to touch with prolonged use.
The LED is lighter weighted and easily portable compared to LCD television. The LED is also more affordable and economical than the LCD now. The long-lasting superior quality makes it more worth to invest in an LED than an LCD.
Direct View LED (aka LED Display)
These kind of LED screens cause quite a lot of confusion in the industry as they are completely different to conventional TV’s in that they are built using a modular installation method and instead of using LED’s to light the display from behind and each individual LED is surface mounted on the front of the LED cabinet. The distance between these LED’s is called the LED pixel pitch and so an LED display with a pixel pitch of 1.5mm means that there is a distance (center to center) of 1.5mm. The closer the LED’s are together the higher the pixel density and in turn the higher the overall resolution of the display. Due to the modular nature of these kinds of LED screens they can be put together to create huge seamless TV’s of almost unlimited size with no bezel lines unlike traditional video walls. The direct view or LED display screens are becoming more and more popular and are regarded as the very best solution in the industry for larger type installations. The main benefits of this type of product is that they produce a far better image, have high levels of contrast, can reach higher brightness levels and are generally much cheaper to run per m2

Is LED or LCD Better for the Eyes?
Eye safety is a major concern in today’s modern era, where people are always working in front of a laptop or computer screen. It is recommended by experts to invest in LED display screens to work on desktop, laptops, or even watch television. The LED have far better display panel in the prospective of eye safety, picture quality, and power consumption. Both LCD and LED make use of Liquid crystal display, but the difference lies in the backlight, which is majorly responsible for the effect on the eyes. The regular LCDs use a cold fluorescent cathode display backlight, and the LED uses Light Emitting diodes. The LED backlighting is smaller and much safer for the eyes.
Which has Better Picture Quality – LCD or LED?
The picture quality of the LED display is far better than the LCD. The LED uses an RGB contrast, which makes the pictures almost come alive on the television screen giving its viewers an enjoyable experience.
Though these benefits make LEDs the first choice, it is important to state very clearly that LEDs are not at all cheap. Though the long durability, high-quality picture, the energy-saving feature, and eye safety technology makes it worth the investment compared to less durable and little lower quality LCD display. Why settle for less when the bigger and better product is available at a little higher price, which gives innumerable benefits to its consumers. The LED may be bulkier in price but definitely worth it.
Which of the Two is more Energy-Efficient?
Besides better picture quality, LED Televisions are also energy efficient. They consume very little energy compared to LCD televisions. There is an almost 50% reduction in the power consumption for LED televisions.
LED vs. LCD Lifespan
It is often claimed that LCD TVs’ lifespan is around 75,000 hours, whereas, with LED TVs, you can expect up to 100,000 hours. This is clearly 25% more on average, so LEDs are the clear winner here.
The LED is often regarded as a third-generation display. It meets the demands and preferences of the new generation very much. They are more attractive in designs too. With the increasing shortage of space in the new residential complex, what better than the ultra-thin LED display giving a cinematic experience in the comfort of your homes. LEDs are the first choice among the public today, be it the old generation or the new young youth, all are opting for a switch to LED from the LCD to make lives more enjoyable and better.
