    I want to buy an LED TV, not an LCD TV… What is the difference?

    Technically and LED TV “is” and LCD TV, the main difference is how they are lit up to produce the picture. Quoting Amazon: Though LED TVs have taken on a name of their own, they are not so different from LCD technology. When comparing LED vs. LCD TVs, the difference lies in how the screen is lit to produce a bright picture. Traditional LCDs are back-lit with standard fluorescent lights, whereas LEDs are back-lit using smaller and more energy-efficient LED lights.

    If you’ve ever used an LED flashlight (or compared one to an ordinary flashlight), you can already make a good guess at the advantage of LED lighting: Your picture will be brighter and have better contrast. Additionally, LED TVs have deeper blacks than LCDs (important if you’re a movie buff), and the screens themselves are thinner and consume less power. In the battle of LCD vs. LED technology, LED TVs definitely come out on top.
