Difference Between LCD and LED

Various reasons are behind the every purchase by customers. So they wanted best in his/her budget. But if any consumer is going to buy Display Screen for any purpose than they got struck with the question that do they buy LED or LCD Display? So to ease out this difficulty we are presenting difference between LCD and LED.


LCD are developed by using cold cathode fluorescent to lit up the screen. LCDs are brighter, thinner, light and energy efficient with 100-200Hz processing engines to better handle fast motion. The LCD uses liquid crystal diode (LCD) technology with front panel containing the “twisting crystals” which define LCD technology. Display’s performance can be guessed with its processing engines means more processing frequency will result into better display.

Advantages And Disadvantages:

Very first disadvantage of the LCD is that it show black spots where the back light gets blocked by LCD panels.  There are LCD with Fluorescent and coloured backlights which differ their performance on colour accuracy of display. And in coloured backlights there’s variation of RGB and White backlights. The LCD colour  accuracy is not accurate as  that of LEDs in white backlights but the competition is same inn the LCD which uses RGB backlight. The point we are going to discuss is the topmost query by customers and that is the viewing angle for display to view it clearly and sharply without black spots and LCDs are better for it as they are not much thin. Fast moving playback is even on both display and even it depends upon refresh rate and time. Consumers need to  have good refresh rates for better moving playback. You can consider both the displays  for Gaming. Its lifetime is less than of LEDs  as its back lighted by Fluorescent bulbs. Its also great in brighter environments.


LEDs are developed by light emitting diodes rather than CCFL in Liquid Crystal displays (LCD) due to which various panels are removed from it and it becomes thin and more brighter than LCDs. It stimulates the true black by dimming specific areas of the display. Its also consumes low power as compared to LCDs. Mainly it have features of both Plasma and LCD displays.

Advantages and disadvantages:

LEDs show best black levels and high contrast ratios.  LEDs show realistic colours in displays using RGB backlight colours. LEDs are more expensive than LEDs but it have latest technologies with that of LCD and Plasma features. Leds perform better for viewing from different angles as its light is coming from directly behind the screen. As discussed above fast moving playback depends upon refresh interval and time. Manufacturers recommend LCDs for gaming due to its backlighting during game play but from users prospectus both are even. The timeline of LEDs are better of about 100000 ours as its manufactured by LED lights not CFL which is used for LCDs manufacturing. Its LED light system helps to it to remain cool.

Due to its thinness ultra thin books are coming to market and added more choices to customers. So guys which one you gonna buy now?
