OLED, or Organic Light Emitting Diode, TVs use the newest form of technology to produce amazing picture quality – in fact it is the best picture quality you can buy.
The benefits of OLED screens include better picture quality than LED LCD, near-perfect black levels and superior contrast, wide viewing angle, and super-thin design of around just 1/4-inch thick.
The downside of OLED TVs is that for now there are only a few models available and that means that they are expensive. Also since this is a new technology there might be unforeseen problems that develop over time.
The good news is that as more manufacturers begin producing this type of TV more varieties and sizes will become available and the price will start to decline. Therefore, unless you absolutely want the best viewing experience you can get right now, you might want to wait a couple of years for the price for OLED displays to come down.
