Are you looking for something that offers a clearer picture and more vivid colours? The ideal product for this case is the Oled TV, which is the most modern option of televisions.

What is an Oled TV?

The term Oled stands for "Organic Light Emitting Diode", which in Portuguese means Organic Light Emitting Diode.

Televisions with this technology have organic diodes applied to the screen and use them as their own source of light, thus each pixel emits its own light and can be completely extinguished from the image being displayed.

This way, this type of TV does not require an additional LED panel, which makes them thinner.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of having an Oled TV?

By dispensing with backlighting, the Oled TV can be watched in any position around its 180º, not to mention that they can also have curved screens not harming their quality.

Thanks to this innovation it is able to achieve perfect black, thus creating extremely sharp images, with vibrant colours and quality that equals cinema-like.

In addition, as we have seen, it is thinner and consumes less energy. However, as not everything is perfect, by using organic diodes, this type of TV has a shorter life span if compared to other models.

While with it is estimated about 14 thousand hours with moderate use of brightness, the LCD and LED models have an average lifespan of 25 to 40 thousand hours.

Advantages
  • Without backlighting panels
  • Vivid colours, with high resolution, contrast and brightness
  • Only one in the market that achieves true black
  • It is thinner
  • It can be watched from any angle within 180º
  • It consumes less energy
Disadvantages
  • Useful life shorter than other TV models
  • High price
  • Low water resistance

What is the difference between Oled and Qled?

Amidst so many TV options you must have come across the terms Oled and Qled, however, what is the difference between them?

First of all it is important to note that when we talk about technology for televisions the options Oled and Qled are direct competitors. Basically the Oled TV was launched by LG and is currently also used by other brands.

As we explained above, it uses organic diodes for light emission, dispensing with rear lighting panels, achieving pure black, being very thin and thus having a transmission of images with extremely sharp colours.

At the 2017 edition of the Consumer Electronic Show, which is the largest technology fair in the world, LG launched the "OLED-W" model. The letter W in the name means wallpaper and the TV got that name precisely because it is only 2.6 millimetres thick.

Qled was created by Samsung to compete with Oled. This technology is based on quantum dots and uses nanocrystals that promise to reproduce 100% of colour variations regardless of the brightness level, creating images more faithful to reality.

Quite simply, Qled TVs are the same as LCD TVs, but with an additional layer of nanocrystals that is able to improve the resolution of the images.

Another attention-grabbing factor for Qled models is their brightness range that reaches 1,500 to 2,000 nits, while the average of other devices is 1,000 nits.

However, unlike the Oled model, this type of TV still uses backlighting. Below we prepared a chart where you can see even more clearly the difference between these two types of technology:

Oled TV Qled TV
Type of technology It has organic diodes for light emission and does not need backlighting panel It uses nanocrystals to create the images and has backlighting panel
Image resolution vivid colours with high resolution, contrast and brightness faithful colours regardless of the brightness variation
Brands Created by LG, but used by other brands Exclusive Samsung
Price High High

How much does it cost?

After showing so many qualities related to Oled TVs, we come to one of the most crucial points about this product: the price. Unfortunately, because it's a new technology, the price of these TVs is high.

Purchase criteria: What to take into account when comparing Oled TV models

You have already seen that the investment is high and needs to be thought through very carefully so that you don't come with a regret later. Therefore, below we have listed the main points that you should take into consideration when comparing the Oled TV models available for purchase.

  • Size
  • Associated technologies
  • Value
  • Design

Now we will explain in detail each of these factors so that you know how to buy the best model for you.

Size

The idea of Oled TVs is to create TVs with a cinema-like picture, so you won't find one of these at 36". The smallest TVs of this type available on the market are 55", and the largest one for sale in Brazil is 65".

The big advantage is that they have a fine and beautiful design, but due to their size they must match the space. Before buying this product see exactly which will look best in your home.

Associated technologies

The main technology present in these TVs is Oled, but also analyze what are the "extras" that the model you're thinking of buying has. Not only image lives the cinema, how is the sound of the device you are watching? It has something different from the others?

There are currently models with voice recognition, not to mention that all of them have Wi-Fi connection and integrated digital converter. There are many features, sleep timer is one of them.

That is why it is worth analysing what is most interesting about the television set. Read the description of the device that interests you most.

Price

Thinking about values, not always what is more expensive is better. Even, talking about Oled TV, this is not directly related to the size of the device either.

In this aspect, analyse the brand of the product, if it is one that you trust more, if you have heard good things about it, and what are the differentials that justify the price that is being charged for that device.

If you have a limited budget, taking into account that this is a very expensive device, can already discard these models with very high prices.

Design

They usually don't have much variation in design. Generally, they are super modern, discreet and thin. However, some details can be analyzed, as the colour of the base of the Oled TV.

Although they are all super thin, there may be a difference - even if minimal - between some models. Check carefully which one fits best with the decor of your environment.
