    LED is better than LCD. It is thinner. That is basically the difference. I have an LED in my living room and and LCD in my bedroom. Basically, there is not much difference between the two. Just LED is more expensive.

    They're basically exactly the same aside from how they're backlit. LCD screens use florescent lighting while LED (you guessed it) uses LED's which results in a much clearer, crisp image. LED > LCD, though the difference isn't huge. I personally use an LCD screen.

    LED uses light emitting diodes to produce images while LCD uses liquid crystalline display, fluorescent lights to do the same. The picture quality obtained via LED is much sharper than obtained by LCD.

    LED is a type of LCD. "Regular" LCDs use CCFL (flourescent) light source as their backlight. LED LCDs uses LED light source as their backlight. This provides the LED LCD set better blacks, colors, contrast, and more even image across the panel. So in theory it is definitely a better picture. Also it consumes less energy. But at the current time, you pay a huge price premium for these features. Frankly you're better off, financially, going Plasma over LED LCD in the current landscape.

    What really is the difference between LED & LCD aside from LED is thinner, in terms of technical features?

    LED and LCD both are the technology provided for the display purpose with color combinations. Though both are much same having some differences that is the major difference between LED and LCD are the source of light provided to them so that they can display colorful images. LCD use fluorescent lamps while LED use light emitting diodes for that purpose.

    LED LCD display is backlit by LEDs instead of neon tubes, because it is a representation of some particular color ,black for instance, is better than the regular LED LCD.Therefore displays with LED technology are better than ordinary LCD.

    LEC determine(light-emitting diode) & LCD means (liquid crystal display) LED televisions are going to look better than other LCD screens

    what is difference between LED and LCD?

    LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display. The name came because the screen itself behaves like a liquid if we touch.
    LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. In this, small diodes are used as Light emitting devices. LED's have more advantage than LCD's.

    No doubt LED TV is latest innovation of technology and has been derived from LCD TV . Thus it owes good features and a bit costly than LCD TV. If you do not have a tight budget than i think you must go for LED TV.

    LED do have real black colors, LCD do not. It may be noticed in dark room (environment where movies usually watched) black colors look like dark grey, that is because of technology evolved, LCD pixel do not have light itself it is reflection from lamp that located both sides of your monitor. In the same time LED do not have such issues as every LED pixel is lamp itself

    Hi,

    LED is the latest technology, It come excellent picture quality with more mega dynamic contrast ratio and less power consumption than LCD. Samsung or Sony is great brand. However I would recommend Samsung over Sony, it comes with better features and cheaper price.
