Types of LED TVs available at Shop Scanner

One of the most popular types of televisions is the LCD version. Remember, the LED TVs for sale are screens that use liquid crystals called LCDs. With its unique combination of solid and liquid characteristics, this crystal exhibits amazing versatility. Backlights are located behind the primary screen of LCD monitors or displays. This allows them to release the white light. The liquid crystals in these screens may selectively absorb or emit light depending on the situation, thanks to the two layers of polarised glass.

That being said, LED screens also use the same technology. Because of this, it is often said that all LED screens are actually LCD screens, but this is not necessarily true.

The abbreviation LED refers to light-emitting diodes. One way in which it differs from LCD televisions is that the former uses fluorescent lights while the latter uses diodes.  Different arrangements of these lights are also possible. To make an LED work, the lights are either positioned behind the screen or encircle it. The actual form of the screens can also vary as a result of the difference between LCD and LED TVs. So, for instance, you’ll often see that LEDs are thinner than LCDs.

Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) TVs entered stores in 2012 and look like LCD TVs. A fundamental difference between OLEDs and LEDs is their use in OLED displays. An electric current across these compounds produces light. This produces outstanding colour accuracy and clarity.

Quantum light-emitting diodes (QLEDs) are popular TVs today. Nanoparticles replace light-emitting diodes in a quantum dot array (QLED). Electric fields brighten and colourise charged dots.

Understanding Specifications of LED TVs for Sale and How to Choose the Best LED TV

LED TV presentationScreen Size

Diagonal measurement, usually expressed in inches, is the standard unit of measurement for television screens. There is a wide range of TV sizes available, from small, space-saving models perfect for apartments or kitchens to huge displays befitting mansions or living rooms. Consider the room’s layout and viewing distance when choosing a TV size. A bigger screen can make the experience more immersive, but it should fit the room. You can use online calculators or recommendations to find the appropriate screen size for viewing distance. 


The amount of information in an image is shown by its resolution. Images with higher quality are more detailed. There are many ways to measure image resolution. 

In TV hardware, resolution is the number of pixels in the picture. Smart TVs have many resolutions. Some 32-inch smart TVs and older ones have a million pixels (720p). Newer, slightly larger TVs (49 inches and smaller) feature over 2 million pixels (1080p). Brand-new 4K Ultra HD TVs (50 inches and larger) have 8 million. The latest and largest TVs contain 33 million pixels (8K).

Consider the size, viewing distance, and content availability when purchasing a TV depending on the resolution. For the most detail, 8K TVs offer the finest resolution and clarity. 4K TVs are the standard for superior picture quality. For smaller TVs, choose 1080p Full HD and 4K UHD for larger ones. 


Choose LED, OLED, or QLED based on budget and preferences. OLED and QLED TVs provide better contrast and colour accuracy, but LED TVs are cheaper. 

Smart Features 

Select a Smart TV with a simple interface and compatibility with popular streaming services. Smart TVs give simple access to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and more. Check for voice control and Alexa/Google Assistant compatibility.

Connectivity Options 

Make sure the TV has enough HDMI and USB ports for game consoles, Blu-ray players, soundbars, etc. Ethernet and Wi-Fi are also needed for seamless online content access. 

Storage vs RAM

For smooth multitasking, RAM temporarily stores active data, while storage stores the TV’s firmware, programs, settings, and user data. RAM and storage are essential for a smooth Smart TV experience. RAM increases performance and reduces latency. Additional TV storage means more content/apps.

Refresh Rate, Motion Handling

For sports and action movies, a refresh rate of 120Hz or higher can improve motion handling.
