The best OLED TVs in 2022
Why OLED is better
Most smart TVs are LED TVs, and that means their pixels are lit from behind or the side by LED backlights. That’s fairly inexpensive, but it’s not ideal: it means light bleeds into bits it’s not supposed to.
With OLED each pixel emits its own light, so there’s no backlight and no bleed: unlike LEDs, OLED TVs deliver true blacks along with exceptional contrast, vivid colours and incredible accuracy. Whether you’re gaming or streaming, watching Blu-Rays or bingeing box sets, OLED is the TV tech you’ve always dreamed of.
