Difference Between LCD and LED

The lighting placement process is different in LCD and LED. From lightening placement, in LED we get the result that, the LED TVs can be thinner than LCD TVs and the LED TV run with greater efficiency as compared to the LCD TV. LEDs provide a better picture quality than LCD TVs.

There are 2 basic reasons due to which LED provides a better picture result. The first reason is the RGB coloured light that produces sharp and clear colours. The second reason is the light-emitting diode which can be dimmed. Dimming capability allows the picture to display with the exact black by darkening and blocking more light from passing by the panel. On the edge-lit LED TVs this capability is not applicable.
